Mistral team casts a wide net across a multitude of locations, lifestyles, and backgrounds. But so do most teams everywhere nowadays, which is awesome! Differences and diversity are major strengths. Not all teams are organized the same way though, and team organization is the key to success. After many years of trial and error, we’ve learned what organizational infrastructure best supports our ambitions and team culture.
Clients refer to us as business partners as we consult them every step of the way. This way of work requires experts who are constantly on their top game. We’re lucky to have 200 such individuals on board. Building a strong culture that enables their growth is our prime mission. That’s where our core values “People first” and “Culture of trust” play a vital part. Our every move is tailored with them in mind. Finding a way to simultaneously meet these two imperatives (business + culture) was not easy, but we made it possible through our customized organization.
Practice Groups are communities of employees who share the same
role-defining competencies. They develop them further through knowledge exchange and research. These think tanks also provide support to other teams who may need their particular expertise, have dedicated comms channels and regular meetings. Here are the main PG’s of Mistral:
Members of this group have very strong personalities, a distinct taste, and a ‘user first’ mindset that fuels many of their group talks. What’s there not to love about these creative marvels?
This naturally curious group enjoys discussing different technologies and innovative approaches each time they meet. They are very open to public and often invite external audience to listen in on their meetings.
Nobody handles complexity like this crew. They even have divisions within their group to explore certain technologies in true depth (like Ruby, Python, Node.js and others). True Spartans.
Our full-fledged Mobile PG has the power of turning mobile apps into mobile works of art. Their profound love of apps is easily felt through every swipe.
This is the most organized group of experts with sky-high standards. They don’t settle until the final product is impeccable, taking the notion of quality to a whole new level.
These highly-skilled titans continuously prove their dedication to better, bullet-proof solutions. This team ensures security is never compromised while teaching others how to do the same.

Project-based teams at Mistral are very special. Since most of our projects are long term and our company employee retention rate super high, project teams are very close and have many internal jokes and custom rules. All Mistral project teams have a full-stack lineup; from Devs, QAs, Designers to DevOps engineers and PMs.
As a continuously growing company, we needed to organize a system of work that ensures a very smooth client experience in all stages and without exceptions. A dedicated group of very experienced professionals was assembled to ensure this premise. We call them the Engagement
The primary reasons behind establishing the EE team were:
- the volume of project intake workload has increased
- the need to be more expedient in creating proposals
- access to dedicated seniors at all times
They are dedicated to giving their best in these 3 areas.
Accountable and engaged management is an essential piece of the puzzle. Mistral management board consists of 5 very humble, sharply dedicated individuals who lead by example and live what they preach.
