Business Challenge

Every IT team reaches a point where one project finishes, and the team waits for a new assignment. But does it have to be a waste of time? Not at all. We don't stand still. Instead, we seek exciting side projects to launch. One of them is Motivpark.A while back, our COO, Radosław Paklikowski, had an idea to launch a motivational product to help people learn foreign languages. We built on that idea and adapted it to make it about learning to code. But how do you motivate people? Money motivates people, especially if it's being taken away... We decided to go with it! The idea was that if you don't make daily progress on a freeCodeCamp platform, you get a mild punishment. For every day you don't work on learning code, the platform charges your card on file. It's as simple as that.

Creating meaningful products is what we do.

Despite the fact that it was an internal project, I felt like I was working on a regular one. There were the same rituals and rules as in client projects, so I didn't feel like I was without a team.

The Outcome

We created a great motivational tool that allows you to learn job-ready skills from anywhere, anytime. This side project allowed us to learn and grow. We don't just sit on the beach, we stay engaged and motivated.

Talking about the internal initiatives we are working on at MasterBorn makes me tremendously proud.

Motivpark, being one of them, allowed those who were temporarily catching their breath from commercial projects to stay in the game. These projects let us test new solutions and technologies, share knowledge, and grow as a team.
