In 2008, three of us began building mobile apps in Charlottesville, VA. As we've grown into a full-service digital product consultancy with over 1,000 team members, we never once considered relocating our headquarters to a traditional tech hub. Why?
From day one we had a thesis: high-impact tech work doesn’t just happen in high rent cities. And we've spent the past decade proving it.
Today, we help the world’s leading brands create digital products that impact millions and improve lives—and we do it from cities that offer a high quality of life, comparably low cost of living, and proximity to world-class universities. The result? A steady stream of top talent, happy team members and industry-leading retention. Our three largest office locations—Charlottesville, VA; Durham, NC; and Columbus, OH—are small, but cosmopolitan cities that widen the platform for work-life balance. Because we believe that you can build cutting-edge digital products while also putting down roots.
By removing the barriers—both physical and psychological—between our team members, we’ve created a rewarding and sustainable environment for innovative product development.
Embracing a flexible work environment, team members can choose to spend a portion of their week brainstorming, building, and iterating in a shared physical space where every stage of the product life cycle is represented. Strategists, designers, engineers, and project managers fully dedicated to a single project work side-by-side and are given the autonomy to make necessary decisions. Having built the trust and established the psychological safety required to test bold ideas, our tenured teams accelerate time to value and ship products faster.
We’re proud of the outcomes we’ve achieved in partnership with our clients. We’re even more proud of the contributions we’ve made to how their teams build digital products—even after our partnership ends.
Our relationships with our clients go beyond transactional. We don’t just get to know your product, people and priorities. We get inside your processes. As our teams model their battle-tested delivery methodologies, our clients pay attention—and find value in both the products we build together and how we go about building them. We don’t just hand over a product and walk away. We leave our clients functioning better, with sharper tools and understandings, so they can maintain the things both tangible and intangible that we’ve built together.
