Hello world

Hello World

I am Stefan Ghimpau and I am a project manager here, at West Bridge, overseeing Android and web development projects and now also the resident blogger. I have always enjoyed writing but this will be the first time I will be writing on IT or business related topics. I love reading up on anything of interest to me, either personal or professional, because I think people should never stop learning and growing. Hopefully, all this information I soak up on a daily basis will allow me to write posts you will find interesting and useful. And please, feel at home here and if you have anything you would like to add you can comment on the posts or use the contact form to send us a message.

If you did not get the chance to read the About Us section of our site, we are a Romanian software company, based in Bucharest but our largest projects were developed for US based companies. While we handled large projects, we are not a large company and both us and our customers like it that way. And the reason why is pretty simple, as you will see below.

Imagine yourself driving a big truck every day, from home to work and then back home in the evening. Imagine going shopping and having to park that big truck of yours in those tiny little parking spots. Or maybe going on a Sunday for a couple of hot laps in your truck on a circuit, if you are a weekend racer.

Well, that is what it feels like developing software solutions with a large company.

But here, at West Bridge, we are agile. We are nimble, we are fast. We are not a truck, we are a sports car. And you might ask, oh, but what about those times when you need something more for your project? Well, small does not mean not scalable. If your project requires it, we can ensure scalability – after all, we are located in one of the best places in the world to do so, in Romania, where competent, hardworking developers are just around the corner. But scalability does not have to mean getting larger, getting heavier or bulkier – it means upgrading and fine tuning. Adding horse power and better components, not increasing size.

They say that a good start is half the work. Would you rather hit the gas at the green light for your project in a truck or in a sports car?
