What is Mission?

Fully supported teams backed by a powerful platform.

With Mission, you’ll get a fully managed team of senior-level software engineers in two weeks or less. Our platform allows you to stay informed through the entire build, with squad leadership using key performance metrics to keep the mission on track and empowering the engineers to do their best work.

How Mission Builds Teams

An approach to assembly that brings out every engineer’s best.

Having 20+ years of experience and leadership built in to your squad is a major asset. That’s why we start with a Tech Lead and Squad Lead, then we match them with contributors we’re sure we can trust and supply expert specialists as needed. This allows for maximum flexibility and scalability, each team custom built for your needs and adjusted immediately should anything change.
  • Squad Lead

    Your key point of contact with the team (although the full team is available at any time). The Squad Lead makes sure development stays aligned with your business goals. With a median experience of 15 years, some examples of the SL’s duties include running ceremonies, requirement documentation, JIRA management, stakeholder communication, team motivation and performance.
  • Tech Lead

    Our Tech Leads are the primary technical architect on your squad, using their depth of experience to guide and support the team. With a median of 15 years experience, a typical TL’s duties include monitoring code quality, ensuring that engineering best practices are used and that each contributor is working on the right task based on expertise, story point estimation, establishing data model/architecture decisions, PR review, and unblocking devs.
  • Tech Contributor

    Your development muscle, handpicked to tackle the specific challenges of your mission. Max 6 per team for optimal cohesion. With a median of 5 years experience, a typical Tech Contributor duties include development, story point estimation, QA.
  • Expert on Demand

    Our Engineers in residence and Subject Matter Experts are available for your the team on an as-needed basis, and provide guidance on advanced topics, or help navigate specific challenges related to programing language or technologies. With a median experience of 20 years, the SME’s duties may include: consultation on cloud architecture, data engineering, compliance, security, governance, product design, or other specialized areas.
