Introducing our partner: Winter
Thinking big at fast-paced digital agency Winter
Winter is a digital agency offering web, system and app development solutions as well as branding, design and campaign work. We are a small but tight-knit team made up of developers, designers, strategists and project managers with a passion for state of the art tech and innovative approaches to common problems. At Winter, we like a challenge. This pushes us to grow alongside our clients and look for solutions in unexpected places. In short: we want to make the web a better place! Industry trends and innovations are essential to us – but more importantly, we want to create products that’ll stand the test of time.
Our stack? Always up-top-date
We work with multiple tech stacks that allow us to build tailored solutions that will fit all of our clients’ needs. Our go-to CMS platform for custom sites is WordPress, integrated with WooCommerce for e-commerce projects. For API development, we normally pick Node.js as our backend framework. For Windows-based solutions, we also use SQL in the form of MySQL, MariaDB or SQL Server. We also love serverless projects! For those, we work with providers such as AWS Lambda, S3, DynamoDB and more recently, Google Cloud’s Firebase products, such as Firestore, Cloud Storage and Cloud Functions.
When it comes to Android and iOS apps, Flutter, Google’s framework built around the Dart language, is definitely our flavor. What makes Flutter so great is that it allows us to build cross platform apps with an almost native-like performance. When building web apps, e.g. admin interfaces, Angular is our top pick – especially combined with the front-end framework Nebular. For heavy-duty websites where performance is of essence we almost always go for Gatsby or Next.js, which are React-based frameworks for generating static sites.
Fostering an empowering work environment
One of the best things about working at Winter is the huge variety in projects. We make sure that everyone feels valued and encourage each of our team members to grow and evolve within (or outside) of their respective field. You’ll be working on both retainers as well as regular projects and take on responsibilities much earlier than at your typical large-scale company – we don’t believe in rigid structures or hierarchies and instead want to empower our team members to tackle challenges head-on and as freely as possible utilising their strengths and talents.
