How Expansiva Engineering saves 60% of their time in Code Reviews and onboards interns faster

Introducing Expansiva Engineering

Expansiva Engineering is a consultancy company based in Barcelona, Spain.

They’re working on an internet of things project that has many different applications.

As an example, they aim to drastically reduce electricity power bills in companies using big machinery.

We’re talking industrial machines that have more than 200A or 400A and that waste a lot of power, and Expansiva Engineering aims at lowering power bills by controlling and monitoring everything around those machines: power, temperature, humidity, pressure or even lights.

But the platform doesn’t stop there; it can also monitor things such as refrigerators in a supermarket, issuing alerts before the equipment actually malfunctions and, in this case, preventing that the food (which translates to money) within it is lost.

Though the team is growing, they don’t have a very large team yet (they were founded just a year ago), but they’re working hard and put a lot of thought and effort into setting their workflow.

We spoke with their CTO, Xavier Fernández Salas. (more…)
