About Us

Who are these people?

Al and David collaborate on a custom software build.

Thanks for asking. We are a team of artists, bakers, axe-throwers, amateur etymologists, and dungeon masters. What brings us all together is that we truly give a shit about what we do and care deeply about our partners.

Experience

All of our engineers and designers have 5+ years experience. Several have more than 15.

Nimbleness

We believe that small teams of good people can accomplish so much more.

Focus

We aren’t going to integrate your ERP with your CRM and hook up your ESB to your data lake. We love building products.

Loyalty

We foster deep partnerships. We’re still working regularly with the vast majority of clients.

Let's Get Started

Our values are a bit different

What we value as a company transcends the software we build. We modeled our core set of values for building products after the Agile Manifesto. We embrace values that others discount, but that’s what sets us apart. Why declare values, if you’re just going to copy everyone else?

While we value the items on the right, we value the items on the left even more.

Simplicity

Flexibility

Discovery

Design

Pragmatism

Elegance

Reliability

Cutting Edge

Productivity

Sophistication

Joy

Professionalism

Delivering value

Writing software

Never stop learning.

We make time to study, train, and purposefully experiment to find new ways to solve unique business problems. Expertise comes from successes and failures, and we are grateful for the opportunity to learn from both.
