Product Design

Product design is not just about how it looks; it’s about how it works. Who cares if your product is on-time and within budget, if no one likes it? Great products are not defined by feature sets, bugs and up-time – – – they are defined by users and revenue.

We believe the product development process begins a single line of code is written by listening to users and analyzing the core problem the product intends to solve. We can help you avoid wasting resources by integrating user feedback and market analysis throughout the entire development process from sketches to finished releases.

We help you dial-in your product strategy and the research and documentation needed to make it a success (and look pretty good too).

Build

We start by assembling a dedicated team of the best talent for your product. Teams sit together, eat together and work together. They sometimes even dress alike. We create a unique team culture for every product and no engineers work on more than one project at a time. We provide highly experienced project managers and quality assurance analysts to ensure we ship clean, well-documented code, on schedule. We work in two week sprints, use tools such as Trello, Slack and GitHub and provide daily status reports on progress.

We leverage open source libraries and third party APIs whenever possible to deliver quality products as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.

Our team of 100+ full-stack engineers all bring unique technical skills to the table. We can work with almost every modern technology, programming language and framework.

Test, Tinker, Test Again

Crappy code is code that no one will pay to use. We do everything possible to ensure we do not spend time testing and perfecting code that no one wants.

The mantra “move fast and break things” is not supposed to be an excuse to skimp on testing, but to remind us that perfect is the enemy of done. Perfect is expensive. Perfect is unnecessary, particularly on a first release.

We believe in efficient iteration driven by user feedback and analytics. We focus on hitting product /market fit, and then we perfect the product to deliver users a seamless experience on every device, platform and browser.

Launch, Scale & Raise

The point of this text is tell you about our Launch, Raise and Scale services, but we accidentally rolled it out with Lorem Ipsum as a placeholder and nobody said anything. Now we are worried no one is bothering to read the expensive copy we wrote. Erin is pretty sure people noticed and just didn’t say anything. Amir is confident that no one is reading and we should stop writing. Folks, that’s what we call a good wager. If you read this text, please email Amir (e-mail on team page) with the subject line: “I told you so.” If you aren’t reading it, well… you aren’t reading it, so sshhhh… Amir does not need to know I have wordpress skills.

Not a Startup?

Awesome. Our product development method is tailored to support innovation regardless of company or team size. Some clients start with an idea and a rough sketch, others are well-established companies looking for extra engineering muscle and specialize in supporting rapid growth companies.

Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
