I help software engineering leaders improve developer productivity resulting in faster software delivery.

Here’s the problem

The harder you push your developers the worse things get

  • Your team consistently misses deadlines and struggles with slow software delivery.
  • You’re struggling with high developer turnover and can’t seem to retain top talent.
  • Your developers are facing burnout due to unclear requirements and constant last-minute changes.
  • Poor code quality is causing frequent bugs and production issues, frustrating both your developers and end-users.

The Dream

Imagine letting go of the stress and actually seeing developer performance spike.

  • Imagine delivering features faster and finally making a dent in that backlog.
  • Imagine attracting top-tier talent and keeping them!
  • Imagine having happy developers that are motivated to, not only perform, but innovate.
  • Imagine dramatically cutting severity-0 bugs that should have been caught before the production release.

About Andre

Andre South Owner of South Software Solutions

Hi, I’m Andre South and I help IT organizations increase developer performance with key insights into their developer experience. 

I’ve been a software developer and infrastructure engineer for the better part of the last 10 years. I’ve written enterprise applications, APIs, SaaS products, I’ve been around the block. Because of this, I understand how devs think and what bothers them.

All development teams have bottlenecks and hidden pain points, I’ve seen it time and time again. In fact, I consider it my mission to crush bottlenecks and eliminate friction wherever it is found. The question is: what value is waiting out there for your team?
