Our Offices

Short History

AnvilEight was founded in April 2010 by Andrey Zarubin. We started as a software outsourcing company that provided back-end Python services using the Django framework.

In 2011, having grown to a team of 6 developers, we also started providing front-end services. 2012 was a significant year for us - We launched our mobile department, expanding our services to include app-development for iOS and Android. We also started to assist our clients with requirements gathering and analysis, as well as documentation and quality assurance.

In 2016, we were further bolstered by the addition of a UI/UX design department and also launched our QA automation department. Till date, we still prioritise Python and related frameworks over our other offerings. In our projects involving big data, we naturally use Python, in addition to Pandas, NumPy, Scikit-learn etc, for data analysis.

Today, we are an enthusiastic team of 38 members, looking forward to being challenged and delivering high-impact services to our clients all around the world. Presently, the company is registered in Kharkiv, Ukraine and London, United Kingdom. The head office is located in Kharkiv while a new office in London is now being established.

  • About Customers

    We work with companies and individuals from all around the world. Most of our customers are based in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia. However, we have (and have had) many clients from continental Europe and Asia.

  • About Infrastructure

    We employ a wide range of tools and homegrown processes designed to help us achieve our missions smoothly and better implement our core values:

    • We maintain a wiki which serves as our knowledge base. All our information, rules and experiences are stored in our internal Wikipedia-like book;
    • We use DevOps. Our continuous integration process uses concourse CI with tons of built-in pipelines. It allows us to perform complex development operations without much fuss;
    • Our hardware is constantly upgraded to ensure that we use nothing but the best tools money can buy;
    • We have scheduled, all-hand meetings every Friday, to discuss important things on a weekly basis;
    • We focus on intensive over extensive.
  • About The Tools

    We use a number of systems and tools in our day to day operations, namely:

    • PyCharm as an integrated development environment for our Python engineers;
    • Xcode and Android studio for mobile developers;
    • YouTrack as a project management tool and agile board;
    • Concourse as continuous integration and delivery system;
    • GitLab as a git repository provider;
    • Telegram as a chatting platform;
    • Django-based CRM/ERP system we created for operations and invoicing;
    • Bookstack as a wiki-like platform to store internal documents and files;
    • We firmly believe that there is endless potential for optimisation and are currently working on improving our workflow across millions of variables.
