How it all began

Ilder AS was started to enable its founders to work with what they knew and love. Tor and Christian has always been technologists. 

With Tor pursing his proclivity for design through completing a PhD at University of Bergen with an emphasis on user experience and the human element in the equation. 

Christian on the other hand has a head for logic, math and creative solutions to complex problems. He got his Masters at Harvard in mathematics with an underpinning of computer science. 

We founded our company with the name Ilder. Ilder (en: ferret) is one of Norway's only predatory mammals living on land. The Ilder is small, lean, agile and fierce and can in some cases become housetrained. Every ilder in Ilder have at least one of these characteristics.

How we deliver value

We place the user first in our workflow, and have dedicated interaction designers within our team. We have a workflow thoroughly grounded in agile methodologies, involving the end users every step along the way. We are DevOps centered and embrace continuous deployment.
SCRUM workflow
We make software that we can be proud of, and in order to achieve that, we need to be attentive to how our software gets crafted, which means that our development process itself is subject to our continual revision and optimization.

1

Discover

We start each project with a discovery phase. This stage is all about defining scope, vision, and logistics so that we can gain a deeper understanding of your project requirements. We work closely with you because it’s important to us that your entire team feels valued and involved. Our discussions and your feedback will help identify resources, milestones, benchmarks, timeline, and agreed-upon deliverables.

2

Design

Information gathered during the discovery phase is used to inform the creative direction of the project. We work closely with you to ensure that the overall tone (user interface, visual content, hierarchy, etc.) matches your desired outcome. With this in mind, we explore potential solutions and prepare Sketches, wireframes, mockups or prototypes. 

Design is in our blood.

3

Develop

This is the phase where our design concepts and solutions come to life. By taking the information collected in the discovery phase and testing concepts in the design phase, we are now ready for development. 

Every employee at Ilder AS deals with development in some form. From the high level translation of mathematical equations in research papers to executable code.

4

Deploy

This is the final phase of the project, where your product or application goes through quality assurance, user testing and finally, launch. We’re committed to ensuring that our solution perfectly aligns with your goals and meets our own standard of excellence. 

We emphasise an iterative development cycle with careful building of the finished product. As a customer you can expect to see your concept materialize over one or two week sprints, user story by user story, feature by feature.

5

Iterate

All above processes are subject to iterations. Iterations ensures that the product we are building incorporate feedback and suggestions at every stage. So we try to build architectures and teams around the concept of building, rebuilding, testing and improving based upon feedback. And it works perfect for both us and customers.
