We take new
domains seriously

Every project is a new opportunity to become experts in an adjacent industry. As generalists, it’s one of the reasons we love working for other people. Whether the subject matter is archaic or emerging, we take pride in learning it through and through.

We work in small,
blended teams

Our new hires tend to be engineers who care about user experience, and designers who like to sweat the technical details. This overlap allows for products to be built seamlessly: no gaps in communication, no convoluted hand-offs, no diffused accountability. We believe in smaller groups, broad skill sets, and constant communication.

 
 
 

We use the right
tool for the job

We’re not a specialty shop—unless you consider doing lots of different things a specialization—and we tend to change tools when it suits the task at hand.

 
 
 

We work in
one-week sprints

Getting from zero to product in a timely window requires a steady thrum of output. For this, we stick to a weeklong sprint schedule: it’s short enough for modern attention spans, and long enough to build out substantial product components. Another week goes by, and another piece of the product is done.

We work toward
Friday releases

Our clients know what got done each week when they review the Friday Release. Together, we evaluate and prioritize the next sprint, repeating this week after week until the product is out the door. Rather than review a mere representation, what’s being reviewed is almost always the product itself.
