Raleigh design, Ember, and Elixir development studio

We opened our Raleigh studio in 2013. You can find us eating mac and cheese at Poole’s, drinking horchata at Centro, or scoping out the produce at the State Farmer’s Market. We love the fast-growing tech scene here, the small-town feel, and living in the best city in the country for raising a family.

Build something great with us in the City of Oaks

An ideal project for us is one where where our client cares about their users’ jobs to be done. We can help you get your first product off the ground. Or, we can work on new releases, internal tools, or re-write sub-systems.

Contact us to chat about design thinking, bringing your product to market, or the trade-offs of JavaScript frameworks and different back-ends.

      David Bernheisel

      David grew up in the 90s in Atlanta, GA during the age of AOL’s iconic “Welcome!” sound, Warcraft II, Prince of Persia, and dial-up. He was exposed to 286 computers with orange DOS prompts by his parents, a mechanical engineer and telecom engineer. During high school and after making an AOL program that colorized text for chatrooms, David decided that making applications was his favorite thing to do; that it blended the right amount of leadership, design, building, and cultural evolution. Lately, he’s been fascinated with Elixir and Phoenix, NativeScript, and the fact that his 3 large dogs are too crazy for their own good.
