Quote about rebuilding

thoughtbot helped us quickly build the groundwork for our product, which enabled us to fundraise earlier, and for a larger round. If we hadn’t worked with them, we could be a year behind where we are today.

Why Rails?

You still can’t beat the Rails framework and ecosystem for web apps

We like Rails because it solves its specific problem the best, thanks to the years of development over other systems. Not only can you create highly functional web apps with all the bells and whistles in the shortest possible time, but it is designed for maximum developer happiness. Developer happiness means you can feel more confident in product quality and maintenance as well as future hiring and retention.
