After 20 years of building web technologies, we have seen just about everything from handling massive legacy migrations, to scaling systems for handling billions of requests per day, to getting the perfect layout on a blog template.
We help businesses tackle hard technology problems with intelligent, deliberate solutions — on time, and on budget. When we talk about value driven development, we mean that technology must be designed to add real value to a business. We do not build technology just for the sake of technology.
We believe that we should always be honest with our customers. We believe that communication with our customers should be frequent. We believe that we should answer the phone when the customer calls. We believe that deliverables should be small and frequent. We believe that technology decisions should be tested and measured.
These principles have enabled us to align our success with the success of our customers, which is why our customers continue to work with us year after year.
We build advanced backend solutions including new development, bug fixes, ongoing maintenance, and large legacy data migrations.
We use our extensive database and systems expertise to scale for high concurrency and low latency environments. This includes data access optimizations, server tuning, network tuning, and application level optimization.
We have extensive experience and expertise with backend testing whether that be unit tests, api tests, or full system tests.
We keep a strong expertise in all the new and old frontend technologies. So, if a project needs the state of the art, we can build advanced frontend interfaces using ReactJS or VueJS, Webpack, Bootstrap, SASS, and TypeScript or ES6.
However, for legacy projects or projects requiring a simpler stack, we still do plenty of work with the old staples like jQuery, server side templating, and CSS.
Modern web application development requires that we do not simply create code and technology for it's own sake. Applications must be built around the needs and experiences of the customer and the user.
We apply a careful, thoughtful, and deliberate process to creating a user experience and interface which best enables the customer and user to find value in our applications. Our mantra is design, build, test, iterate.
We leverage our expertise with AWS, containerization, various build tools, and industry standard testing tools to automate and monitor integration, testing, deployment, and infrastructure management.
Some of the tools we like include Docker, AWS Beanstalk, Jenkins, Selenium, PyTest, Jest, and PHPUnit.
A successfull project starts with the important questions:
How do define success? Who is the customer? How will we monetize? What are the concurrency needs? What are the uptime needs?
Once we have answered these questions, we work with you to put together a budget and a timeline. Then, we can allocate the appropriate resources to your project based on skill, cost, and availability.
We take security seriously. In modern web application development, good security must be baked in from the beginning. It cannot be added as an afterthought.
Whether we are creating a fresh new project, or maintaining a legacy project, we will try to constantly use best security practices per OWASP recommendations.
We worked to help the Disney–ABC Television Group rebuild, refactor, and migrate one of their online properties for a television network.
This included adding ability to manage content through CMS integrations, performing data migratons from legacy systems, as well as and full redesigns on user interface and user experience.
We were tasked with re-architecting and re-engineering the Paramount Pictures website. This included the migration and handling of thousands of videos, photos, and textual data.
For Stussy, we designed and built a comprehensive retail reporting application across retail stores for gathering and analyzing business insights. Technologies used were Python3, Postgres, and Flask.
The Menlo House is a leading men's subscription fashion company.
Our team was tightly integrated into the company, helping to design and execute technology solutions which enabled the company to grow by 4x revenue at $100m annual revenue.
We built the systems for handling customer payments, customer portals, inventory management integrations, internal business intelligence tools, and customer support tools.
The technologies we made use of were Stripe, AWS, Jenkins, PHP7, Python3, RDS Aurora, and Redis.
Revenue.com was a premier digital advertising platform which sold in 2018 to EquityAds for up to $10m.
Our team was involved from day one to acquisition at every stage of development including budgeting, scheduling, design, hiring, coding, and deployments.
We built out this system to handle over 500m daily requests, including advanced reporting and analytics systems to provide deep business insights. The technologies we made use of were AWS, Jenkins, PHP, Python3, AWS Redshift, RDS Aurora, RDS Postgres, and Redis.
