A Developer-driven Interactive production Shop
We've outgrown seven offices since we started in 2003 and are bursting at the seams with technical experts because we've faithfully pursued our vision: be the best place in the world for nerds to work.
It comes naturally to us, being founded by three programmers, to make a nerd-friendly environment – that's what we've done for our hundreds of employees.
Sure, we have a dog-friendly workplace, a perpetual chess tournament and a 250-seat Rock Band venue, but the most critical ingredient in keeping an army of technical geniuses happy (other than caffeine) is compelling problems to solve. Luckily, our unique business model ensures that we never run short on interesting problems to sink our teeth into.
Our partners do strategy and content. We do data and code. Sticklers on details, you can count on nerds when it comes to numbers – we have the data to prove it.
What Makes Us Different
We keep using that word "partner," but what do we mean? Let’s talk about our relationship. We're partners, not vendors, and we work best when we work with you, not for you. Whether we're partnering with an agency, a start-up or a Fortune 500 company and their creative team, we take a collaborative approach to creating custom solutions with all of our partners.
Size & Scale
If we tell you we can’t meet your deadline, you’re not likely to find developers who can. Our projects range from five-hour quick fixes to 4,000+ hour marathons and everything in-between, and we have plenty of bandwidth for more. With each new project, we draw from our army of geniuses to build teams of individual specialists that, as a whole, are ideally suited for any challenge.
With knowledge of multiple technical solutions to any given problem, we don’t evangelize any single programming language or platform – we help partners make informed decisions that fit within their unique objectives and budget. Having hundreds of nerds under one roof keeps us on the bleeding edge of new technologies. Our toolbox of tried-and-true technologies keeps growing with our early adoption of whatever’s next.
Methodical & Transparent
Another secret to our success is a systematic approach to customer service and speedy execution. You’ll see it in action as we break projects up into milestones, and then into work orders assigned to developers on the team. Partners get weekly updates throughout a project’s life cycle, informed by the developer peer reviews, daily stand-up meetings and timesheet entries that keep things running like a well-oiled machine.
