Design sprints & prototyping
We run an implementation of Google Ventures' design sprints. These sprints help our team get a deep understanding of the problems our clients are solving and validate some assumptions about the product. At the end of the design sprint, our clients have a prototype that we use to run interviews with.
Research, usability testing & user experience
Successful products solve a need for their users. In order to fully understand the problem we are solving for we conduct research and usability tests. These help us make sure that we are building the right set of features for the product and not wasting time on unnecessary features.
User interface design & product branding
Our products solve a problem, are easy to use, and look stunning while doing it. When a brand doesn't exist for the product yet, we help establish the brand.
Our web apps are responsive by default, which means we design them to look great and function easily on mobile devices, tablets, and desktop screens. Unlike most teams, our designers can also code for native iOS and Android platforms. We're up to date on Apple's Human Interface Guidelines and Google's Material Design.
Every one of our designers implements their web UIs in the browser. This ensures that the original intent for the design is carried out from concept to completion. Our open source Sass tools are also some of the most well used and respected in the industry.
Ruby / Rails
Teams using the Ruby on Rails can bring secure, stable products to market quickly with a lower total cost of ownership than other tools. The framework is "batteries included." The surrounding community has been active and enthusiastic for more than 10 years.See our Rails work and why we love the framework
I've known thoughtbot for four years now and have worked on projects that they've worked on so I've seen their code firsthand. Quality is their trademark.Wyatt Greene via Quora
Other languages and frameworks
In addition to, or as an alternative to, Ruby on Rails we use other high quality programming languages and frameworks.
We build our iOS apps using Xcode, Swift, and Objective-C. No third-party platforms sit between iOS and the code we write, which means we are always ready to adopt the latest technologies from Apple.See our iOS work
Their iOS folks are really sharp and they have excellent design services as well.Jason Kwok via Quora
Like iOS, we write our Android apps natively, in Java. Our designers follow Material Design guidelines, and we'll get your app in Google Play painlessly.See our Android work
Most startups don't fail to deliver a product; they fail to get traction. We can help with that.
In order to analyze user behavior later, we need to instrument our app to log the right metrics now.
Identify Acquisition Channels
We run experiments on customer acquistion channels, double-down on what works, and kill what doesn't.
Analyze Activation Funnels
We want to optimize new users' ability to quickly get to the product's "aha moment".
We want to know which users regularly use the product in order to repeat that experience for others.
