Integrant's 4Plus1 Shadow Engineering Program

Our teams, processes, reporting, and technical and non-technical talent combine to create an ecosystem that gets you predictable results you can count on. Our 4Plus1 Shadow Engineering Program helps safeguard your project predictability, stability, and more.

Get Started


Form Your Team

We assign a team of best-fit engineers to your program. For every four engineers, an additional shadow engineer is added at no cost to you.


Shadow and Learn

Shadow engineers work side-by-side with the core team assigned to you. They work on the same user stories and attend the same meetings as core programmers. This pair programming technique allows shadow engineers to learn your unique problems to solve in your distinct development environment.


Extended Resources

The longer you partner with us, the more engineers you have at your fingertips that are trained on your specific applications, processes, and domain. Shadow engineers rotate between programs to give them a wider breadth of knowledge and experience.


Experience the Difference

Shadow engineers add value to your organization in multiple ways:

  1. They allow you to scale up quickly because they’re already embedded within the team.
  2. They increase your capacity by providing extra help when needed.
  3. They improve your velocity because they need no ramp-up time. They’re already trained on your business, project, and domain.
  4. They ensure stability for when deadlines get shortened and your resources get cut
