We reduce growing pains, keep your application secure and get out in front of any scaling issues before they bring your site down or make users unhappy.


If you already have a Rails app in production, we can make sure it stays stable and up to date. We will spend time every month maintaining your application, providing crucial security patches, updates and responding to emergencies. When the time comes to grow your audience or your feature list, your app will have a strong foundation.

Because it’s not just about getting there quickly, it’s about getting to the right place at the right time.


If your app has inefficiencies that need to be addressed, we can perform an audit to identify and resolve them. Technically, we will examine your code and server stack, evaluate it and give you a full report on what is working well for you and what isn’t. Strategically, we’ll examine your competition and your audience, as well as user behavior and marketing ROI.
