Our Uniques

What makes Six Feet Up stand apart from other software consulting companies?


Developed over the course of 25 years, our Flex6™ process is designed to deliver projects on time and on budget, all the while creating meaningful and positive relationships with project stakeholders. Our approach is a blend of Waterfall and Agile methodologies to deliver both the well-planned structure and the flexibility needed for the successful delivery, sustainability, and adaptability of software projects.

To lay the foundation for each project, our waterfall structured planning phase outlines a comprehensive and peer-reviewed Game Plan™ that includes a technical approach, a detailed Complexity Scorecard, a budget estimate and a project plan. We then switch to an agile implementation phase with daily standups, sprint plannings, and iterative development so that we can pivot easily, should it be necessary. Agile allows for continuous client engagement through regular demos, which offer the opportunity for real-time feedback and adjustments. This keeps you informed and engaged throughout the project.

To maintain alignment and adaptability, we engage our clients in weekly Pulse Meetings™, ensuring that we are consistently on the same page and making adjustments as necessary. Every project undergoes two Pit Stops and a 360º Retrospective, serving as built-in checkpoints for quality and opportunities for improvement in our Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).


Our team is made up of experienced software engineers, with most members having between 10 and 25+ years of experience. We evaluate each person's cognitive, conative, and consultative abilities, and match their combined emotional and intellectual capacities to the needs of our projects.

Given the fast pace of software development today, we prioritize hiring adaptable generalists who can easily adjust to the specific needs of our clients. This approach allows us to stay ahead of changes in technology, ensuring that the solutions we provide are not just effective now but will remain relevant and robust over time.


Our developers have daily cross-project standups to pool their collective knowledge. When specific expertise is required, we quickly turn to subject-matter experts — sometimes extending our reach to experts within our extensive partner networks.

We group our engineers into guilds to encourage sharing and learning from each other, a practice that strengthens our collective intelligence. This setup is more collaborative and less hierarchical, leading to well-rounded solutions.

Additionally, we make sure our technical roadmaps are reviewed by the team, ensuring they are practical now and adaptable for the future. This approach of collective review and input is how we use our collective intelligence to prepare for future challenges.

C - Collaborate

Collaboration is the cornerstone of our success. Our team is a tapestry of diverse experts, each contributing unique skills and perspectives.
