The New Place for Technology

The New Place for Technology

Though this article is not the most recent, I stumbled across it while looking at different technology articles online. Facebook recently purchased Mobile Technologies, a Pittsburgh based company run by a CMU professor, and specifically mentioned in the article is the Jibbigo speech translation app. Facebook is always trying to stay ahead of the trends by predicting what its users will need and Jibbigo may be it. In the near future we may be seeing a new Facebook app using Jibbigo’s technology. 

This further proves that Pittsburgh is becoming a city known for more than steel. Though we’re proud of our roots, there is more to this great city besides manufacturing. Because of all of the universities in town, many of the graduates stay in the city and develop their own companies with the connections and resources that they acquired during their undergraduate years. Or like with the company mentioned in the article, professors are even carving out time in their busy schedules to start their own firms.

Entrepreneurship is a valued trait here in Pittsburgh, where the people are known for working hard and staying loyal (this is for all the Buccos fans- we finally did it!). Once we believe in a project, there’s no hope of getting us to quit.

Logix Guru, a Pittsburgh based company, is the exact same. We work hard to deliver the best possible results to our clients and we will not stop until we succeed. Need help with finding an IT professional for your business or need help with developing software solutions or software testing?

How Software Testing Helps

How Software Testing Helps

Logix Guru is a Renaissance company. Like the more commonly used phrase Renaissance man, we have experience and can do a lot of different things well. Though a Renaissance man may be skilled at both painting landscapes and playing the mandolin, we at Logix Guru are skilled in different technical aspects. We can find the right candidate for an open IT position (and love to do it). We can also provide valuable software testing services to your company that will prove highly beneficial in the long run. 

The article that can be accessed by the link above discusses the value of software testing from an IT professional’s point of view. Hiring professional testers to test out your software saves you time and money later down the road when you have to fix the software immediately because it was not compatible with another system. Instead of fixing it at the beginning of the process, it must be fixed after the process has ended to save your reputation. 

Basically, when developing software, it’s crucial to test it before it can be launched to the client or to the public. It’s even better to bring in outside testers because they’re not biased. They can’t be. They want to get the job done and make sure the new software good to go. 

TL;DR: Software testing is a great and necessary part of the SDLC. 

Why Pittsburgh? These Yinzers Will Tell You

Why Pittsburgh? These Yinzers Will Tell You

Pittsburgh is a city that is set to explode anytime now. There’s nightlife, professional sports teams, our own dialect, amusement parks, an evolving art scene, and Pittsburgh Dad. You have to watch Pittsburgh Dad on YouTube. It’s hilarious. And true. Which are things that do not happen often on YouTube. Anyways…

If you’re looking to advance your career, Pittsburgh is one of the best places to go. We are a small enough city that our rent is still affordable and large enough that we have 3 professional sports teams that wear our black and gold with pride. We may be known for the manufacturing industry (where the name for the Steelers came from) but there’s universities, a huge hospital system, and science research out the wazoo (Bayer has a huge office here along with Westinghouse). There are many opportunities for launching or maintaining a career here and because it is a smaller city, it’s an affordable move that can offer new opportunities and great new experiences.

If you want to get a new career in IT in the Pittsburgh area, send your resume over to resume@logixguru.com. We call some of the largest companies in the city our clients and have a variety of types of positions available from them. We want to get you hired and all we need is your resume.

Honesty is Still the Best Policy

Honesty is Still the Best Policy

Logix Guru is all about placing professionals with the right company. Whether you are looking for a job or looking for a consultant, we are dedicated to placing the right people with the right companies. 

If you are looking for a job, it is important to be honest about what your strengths and weaknesses are. For example, if you do not know a particular system, don’t admit to knowing it! If you do know a system that’s related, talk that up. Be willing to learn, but also be willing to admit where you have weaknesses. Everyone appreciate an honest person, and this goes even further when applying for jobs. 

Flexible Delivery Model

 

One of the special features of Logix Guru is our flexible delivery model. We can offer all services on site, offshore, or a combination. On site testing would have the testers working in your office, under your watch. We can also provide testing done solely offshore, which can be a more cost effective solution than onsite testing. Finally, we can offer a combination of the two, meaning you would have testers on site making sure the application will launch flawlessly, as well as a dedicated team abroad.

If you’re going to test your application before you let it launch, the most proactive method, we are one of the best companies to help you. We can make sure your testing gets done the way you would like it done, whether it’s onsite, overseas, or a combination.

QA Challenge: Defeated

QA Challenge: Defeated

Communication is a key element to all aspects of life, both at home and at work. In our field of IT consulting, communication is especially important, because if not everyone understands what needs to be done and how to do it, it could ruin the entire project. It’s also extra important because we work with partners in India in order to use the most effective tools for the best rates, so communicating with them what needs to be done is necessary and must be done well.

This is how Logix Guru is different. We have a  methodology that  has been proven successful over our 13 years in the industry. Because of our partnership with Indium, an India based quality assurance company, we are able to ensure that the necessary QA work is done correctly and efficiently.

Basically, we can offer you a great value for any quality assurance or software testing work that you need done. There’s really nothing else more I could say, is there?

Happy Summer!

Happy summer everyone! For all of those who have just graduated, congratulations! Welcome to the real world! It’s a fun place. 

At Logix Guru we are always looking for IT consultants to place with our clients that understand and can work with many different software applications, including Oracle, SAP, and Java. If you have experience with these or other similar types of applications, send your resume to resume@logixguru.com. If there are any open positions that fit your skill set, you will be hearing from one of our recruiters.
