We are operating more like a startup than a traditional NGO using OKRs, agile project management methodologies and platforms to run our operations across world regions. enpact has currently around 50 employees and has arrived at a point where the projects get into a size that is not further manageable without technology, thus setting up a tech team to support the organization with apps and web-apps for their programs and internal use. Currently, the tech-team consists of 3 devs (two in Indo and 1 in Germany) and should grow to 5-6 this year.
