Our mission is to apply rigorous minds to meaningful work, change the way business is done & cultivate purposeful projects, relationships & environments.


What We Do

Understand

We strive to understand problems before working on solutions. When someone comes to us with a solution, we always take a step back in order to more comprehensively understand the problem they are trying to solve. We ask why they might have arrived at a particular solution and dig into what other solutions might exist.

Solve

We specialize in those applications that require hard problems to be solved or big data to be crunched, and web sites that require ultra-high availability, ultra-high performance, and extreme security. We offer expertise in seamless, responsive and highly useable design.

Build

We build software: web applications, mobile web applications, iOS and Android native mobile applications, and beautiful, responsive web sites. Design and development is all made-to-order and handcrafted in-house to solve the problems at hand with maximum efficacy and value to users.

How We Work

Radical Transparency

We build every project on a framework of trust. Our process is completely accessible and transparent, at every level. You are invited to come by and work with us - our door is always open. And whether you are close by or far away, you can see and engage the work online, at any time.

Practice

'Good enough' is not our game. We work together to make sure that any piece of code or design that we create is thoroughly appropriate and replicable. It's our credo to rigorously build exactly what needs to be built, leaving aside the extraneous and cultivating that which can be used over and over again.

Collaboration

It is one of our core values to foster trusting, rigorous and joyful human relationships that bring value to our company, our professional partners, our community and everything we build. Our work is impactful because we enjoy doing it and learning from one another. Our work provides real value because it is performed in an environment that prioritizes integrity, knowledge and humor.

Interdisciplinarianism

(Say that ten times fast.) We believe that [the best engineers and designers come up with the best solutions because their minds and worlds are big](/blog/the-5-mystical-practices-of-great-engineers), they use their whole bodies, their emotional intelligence, and all their senses. Brilliant solutions come out of vibrant intersections, which we seek out and create as part of our process.


Rates

We do a flat hourly rate of $175 USD for all our work.

The budget of our average project ranges from $100,000 USD to $250,000 USD, however we value a good fit over other specifics. If you think we'd be a good match for what you need, please don't hesitate to reach out.
