We love technology!

We make best use of a wide range of technologies to build custom web applications, client-server applications, mobile apps, community and business portals, e-commerce solutions and many more.

At Zitec we do more than just coding. We try to optimize and automate our clients' business processes, while making best use of a wide range of technologies. Our PHP teams work with Symfony, Phalcon and Zend Framework to build complex, custom-made applications or with Drupal and Magento to implement high quality and cost-efficient solutions for customers in need of a CMS or e-Commerce platform. And because we like diversity, the .NET team is always already for a challenge when it comes to ASP.NET MVC or SharePoint, while in the other room some of us will asynchronously write code in Node.js.

Of course, mobile apps have their dedicated team as well. Be it a native app on iOS, Android or Windows Phone or a cross-platform app, they will do an outstanding job at developing it.

Data storage systems are also important to us! Data is a first-class citizen in every application, so it should be treated accordingly. We try to select the right tool for the job: from relational databases (MySQL, SQLServer or PostgreSQL) to the new kids on the block: NoSQL databases or cloud blob storage.

We’re really proud to have built the Zitec team on a flat structure and self-managing teams dedicated to important projects or various departments. Over the years, some of the colleagues who have shown passion for their work and management abilities have joined the Zibord, helping us to improve as a company and build more and more business opportunities for us and for our partners.
