1. Frontend web development

In a world where users interact with dozens of digital experiences every day, UI and UX are critically important. Even the most sophisticated tech becomes meaningless if it’s near-impossible to interact with. Our frontend developers combine an aesthetic sensibility with a relentless focus on what it feels like to interact with your website or web app.

Working with us, you’ll see fast progress from the outset of your project, starting with an early MVP and progressing through continuous refinement until we arrive at a website or application your users will love.

Some of our front-end technologies include:

2. Backend web development

When it comes to web development, the real magic happens beneath the surface. Our backend developers are in the trenches of the war for faster, more responsive, and more secure digital projects, constantly looking for new ways to unlock efficiency and performance.

With Continuous Integration (CI), we also focus on the way your project interacts with the rest of your tech stack, third-party services, and existing code. As a result, we remove the guesswork and the bad habit of delaying complex integrations until later in the process when they’re harder to pull off smoothly. We integrate earlier, so we can integrate easier.

Some of our back-end technologies include:

3. Maintenance and support services

Beyond the code, it takes a lot to make your web development project a success. From migrating your data from an existing CMS to handling the redirects for your new website, trust us to take care of the entire process—and highlight the details you could otherwise miss.

Our maintenance and support services are designed to become an always-available source of the help you need, when you need it, as well as proactive maintenance to check configurations, keep your website secure, and conduct updates on your behalf. We become an extension of your team to take ownership and accountability over the full lifecycle—going live is just the beginning.

4. Infrastructure

As specialists in helping tech businesses succeed, we share your passion for the right architecture and an infrastructure that optimises performance and efficiency. Our database experts can integrate your website or application with existing databases, from MySQL to PostgreSQL and MongoDB, as well as migrating data on your behalf.

We can also help you unlock endless scalability with a cloud infrastructure that’s fast, flexible, and constantly available. We build advanced digital products on platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and DigitalOcean, as well as leveraging the scale of the cloud for novel ways of processing data.
