About Our Team

Our team was founded by early Yammer engineers with a shared ethos of rapid, product-focused, 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 provide the best team possible for a wide array of project needs and technology stacks.

We’ve built a team comprised of multi-talented, product-centric, design and engineering experts. This allows us to take a project’s needs and create the smallest possible team to tackle it while distributing the work enough to get it done on time.
