Gizra is a boutique development shop in Tel Aviv, established in 2009 and employing 17 developers.
Gizra's work focuses on Open Source technologies: We've created and maintain key Drupal modules such as RESTful, Organic Groups, Message and Entity Reference, and take part in maintaining Drupal core, as well as state of the art technologies like Node.js, D3, Angular, Jekyll and others.
At Gizra we've developed an approach we call The Gizra Way, a radically transparent way of working, but technologically and project management-wise. Every Gizra project is tracked in GitHub with all code and tasks open to all stakeholders from day one. Every piece of code is peer-reviewed and covered by automatic tests. Stakeholders are encouraged to communicate directly with developers working on their code via GitHub Issues.
Gizra developers set aside an hour each day for community contributions: fixing bugs on open source projects, blogging about new code and methods we develop, and working on public-benefit software projects. We make a point of taking part in the developer community, presenting in Open Source camps and conventions worldwide.
