In a world with people where need help. We are here to support you.
Also Peopleware was built to take ideas from a group of brilliant people and grow them into products that support future development. We think of ourselves as practitioners of the lost art of "do business with people touch".
We have a lot in common with what people call a “startup” these days. But we’re actually different from a venture-backed startup in several key ways.
A Sustainable Business Model
A programmer is most productive with a quiet private office, a great computer, unlimited beverages, an ambient temperature between 68 and 72 degrees (F), no glare on the screen, a chair that's so comfortable you don't feel it, an administrator that brings them their mail and orders manuals and books, a system administrator who makes the Internet as available as oxygen, a tester to find the bugs they just can't see, a graphic designer to make their screens beautiful, a team of marketing people to make the masses want their products, a team of sales people to make sure the masses can get these products, some patient tech support saints who help customers get the product working and help the programmers understand what problems are generating the tech support calls, and about a dozen other support and administrative functions which, in a typical company, add up to about 80% of the payroll. From The Development Abstraction Layer
In Peopleware we don’t have outside investors, so we’re free to do things based on the long-term interests of the company. We pay our bills and fund new development with the revenue from our products and services, and we’ve been profitable since day one. Profits that aren’t reinvested are distributed to employees.
A key to keeping Peopleware sustainable is making sure the work environment is fantastic. We believe that the way to be most productive is to work normal 40-hour weeks. We don’t manufacture crisis after crisis to keep teams running on adrenaline. Rather, we provide them with interesting challenges, amazing colleagues, and opportunities for development that match their goals. Most new software managers miss this point. They keep thinking of the traditional, Command-and-Conquer model of management that they learned from traditional managers. Your first priority as the manager of a software team is building the development abstraction layer.
We love to hear from you. You can reach us, or if you have a specific question reach one of our staff. We love receiving email all day every day.
Our support hours are 9am to 5pm EST (UTC-4) Monday through Friday. We always try to make ourselves available outside those hours as much as possible.Phone
