Hi there! In a varied market is important to identify the actors (the real ones). I started this article to show the differences between 4Geeks and other software companies or agencies.
As I said before: “we hate to compare talent, but many people get confused, and they believe that pricing is an advantage”.
Sergio and I founded 4Geeks because bad experiences with other software companies, related in most cases with a misinterpretation of the market. We firmly believe in personal relationships as the engine of a healthy company, both for customers and employees.
Please let me explain you, in 4 key points why 4Geeks is not like a regular software company:
Key #1: Family first
If you come to the office, you can see all team members are a truth family. I’m not kidding. In a family they take care of each other, in all aspects; and that is exactly what happens in 4Geeks.
What would you be able to do for your own family? Everything you can. We too.

Key #2: Continuos learning habits
In 4Geeks it’s forbidden to do nothing for yourself, that is why we encourage each team member to improve their skills, both personal and technical, in order to become the people they want to become.
My partner Sergio is in charge of culture here in 4Geeks, and he implements a Career Path. It’s a plan to measure and to empower the team, one-to-one.
Technical skills are important, but personal development is in the mainstream.
Key #3: Driven by passion. 10X mindset.
We are not simple coders, designers or consultants. We have an entrepreneurial mindset. Family and passion are two of our best team features, and we have some methods to recognize a “driven by passion” people.

The last month we did a workshop about dreams, and how to materialize it by visualization. It’s a ver huge gun! In the following video you can see some team members explaining their “dream paths”. Feel free to replicate it in your company.
A couple weeks ago we published a business article that puts 4Geeks and Indian (and other) companies face to face. I really love all of them, but I hope this can help you understand better the main benefits of working with 4Geeks vs other agencies and companies around the globe.
