Expert Engineering and Product Consultation

Must Win has pioneered a new style of Strategic Consulting called, “Hack Week.” It’s a hyper-focused engagement where our experts work with your project owner(s) full-time to collaborate, create, and iterate. This provides an intensely tight feedback loop and produces amazing results!
“It took us 2 months of working with another firm to get to where we got on day one of our Hack Week with Must Win.” - Keith Chambers, Project Manager, Cisco Systems
All Stars on Your Bench When You Need Them
Our team was founded by early Yammer engineers with a shared ethos of rapid design and development followed by measurement and informed iteration. Since then we’ve added some of Silicon Valley’s brightest engineering and design stars to our roster to build a team of multi-talented, product-centric, design and engineering experts.
You want to partner with team that knows how to succeed. Our stars will not only do what we were asked, but we’ll also be there to advise you on how we think you can improve your product while we’re at it.

Can’t Afford to Lose? You Can Afford Must Win.
In 2014, our clients rated us “Best in Breed” in Overall Value and “Better than Average” in Cost. You might have expected that we deliver great results, but at “Better than Average” cost?
There’s more to cost than hourly rate. It’s also a function of the number of hours it takes to do something, how well you anticipate problems, and the trade-offs you make to complete a project’s business objectives while staying on budget.
On average we’ve delivered for our clients at 7% under budget, and 83% of our projects have been shipped under or on budget.

Our Net Promoter Score: 85
The NetPromoter system is based on the idea that every company’s customers can be divided into Promoters, Passives, and Detractors. Customers rate their likelihood of recommending your company. Promoters (9-10) count toward your score, Passives (7-8) do not, while Detractors (the rest) count against it. Then your total is averaged by the number of responses.
Our 2014 score of 85 ranks in the top 7th percentile of all companies worldwide with an average customer response of 9.4 out of 10!
