Our history

Centaurea's CEO at 2011

Centaurea's history starts in 2011 with our founder - Ivan Karpey decided to leave the largest local enterprise software vendor and work independently. The initial focus was on offering services in development of high-load, distributed, big data processing systems. A lot of experience with NoSQL solutions and complex systems multiplied by honest work with a professional attitude quickly allowed him to become one of the top professionals on Upwork in his area. The profile is still alive, Top Rated with 100% Success level for all that years. With time the amount of work growth so much, that it wasn't possible to complete it with one man team, also having superior tech skills wasn't enough to really build products. And the ultimate goal was to Create and to Innovate, not only earning money.

Centaurea's second employee

Next period in the company's life started near the end of 2013 when our Design Director and Frontend Lead - Natalia Evsyuchenya joined the company as a first full-time employee. That's was an important moment and milestone, because first of all Natalia give to the company much desired design expertise, but also the company was officially started and selected a direction towards current most desired business model - Startup-as-a-Service. Attracting some brave entrepreneurs allowed Centaurea to build portfolio. Also, the first large startup developed by us was acquired by the large investment bank. This reinforces us with a feeling of a proper direction. Allow us to understand that even operating as a small team in a lean environment we could build top-level products.

At 2015 Centaurea started to offer services related to mobile application development. Since this moment it was officially possible to name us as a full-stack expertise company. Also, we enlarge our attention to design. If initially we were concentrated on UI and latter UX, now we start experimenting with more deep product understanding and focus our approach around integral design concept - experience design.

With more and more products developed and projects completed we gain lots of valuable, industry-leading experience. Also with time, we attract more brilliant talents and now could build, scale, launch, support and market projects of almost any size and complexity only relying on our in-house expertise.

Centaurea today is a 12+ person team with full-stack software development, all kind of design, marketing, DevOps, QA, and CX skills and expertise every day working on bringing the most awesome tech solutions to live. It's 40+ different project developed from the small one to the enterprise level, more than 30000h working hours spend on building awesome things for the clients. It's 5 startups fully build and launched by us. And we feel that's only the beginning.

What's most important is that for all these years we do not lose our hunger and desire to achieve the highest professional result, to challenge most advanced problems, to compete in the premier league. We learn every day from every a small problem to work even better every day. Yesterday, today, tomorrow. To move our team and company towards its mission and making our clients and our product user's happy 😄.

Our mission

We are a great believer in a small business, innovations, leadership. We feel that with our skills, our passion and commitment we really could help entrepreneurs and visioners to achieve more, to innovate faster and more efficient. Because it's an individual, entrepreneurs, visioners - those who really innovate. Startups - this is a type of companies who really pushing the boundaries and trying to touch the horizon.

How we work

There is 3 main area we cover: Startup as a Service which is a fully custom startup development, Software Development and Consulting. But agnostic to a service you want you could be ensured that the work will be completed with high attention to details and great quality.

Basically, we are very client friendly and could adapt our process to the client's needs and expectation, operating in both ways: Agile and Waterfall.

However, there is a workflow which we already use more than 5 years and believe that it's properly fine-tuned to deliver superior results. It's very agile by its nature, still allowing to fully control things and progress totally assured about what's going on. Our workflow working based on several key components: Scrumban (the mix of Scrum and Kanban), short iterations, CI/CD, TDD and E2E tests.

Contact Us to know more and we will be happy to explain why this mix could really deliver great results.
