We create great user experiences powered by well-made software. When we start a project, we'll typically run a product design sprint where we create and test a prototype with real people in the first week. We then design and code while focusing on quality and maintainability. We work iteratively and deploy working code regularly.

What did you like best?

Thoughtbot creates a great product and has helped us implement industry-best practices. We have enjoyed the people, and we are continually impressed with how seamless new developers and designers integrate onto the team, regardless of location.

What did you like least?

Nothing to report! We’ve had a great experience.

Describe your overall experience.

Thoughtbot helped us create our website from scratch, creating the first ever marketplace for new and used cars. We have worked with nearly a dozen developers and half a dozen designers. We will continue to maintain a relationship with Thoughtbot even as we build out our internal team.

What did you like best?

Lean team and got the job done. Good communication and team was invested in the project.

What did you like least?

Lack of visibility of when team was working. Unable to determine when investment days were taken. Cutting it close with meeting deadlines. Deadlines were important but did not seem to be paramount to TB. Lots of sick days.

Describe your overall experience.

Overall experience was good. The team was exceptional. Really liked working with TB. Biggest critique was there was no sense of urgency with meeting our final deliverable date. While I totally respect quality of life, if a client is paying the high fees TB is charging, there should be an expectation that the client's deadline will met at all costs.

What did you like best?

They had a really diverse and talented team. We feel they really put themselves in our shoes and took time to think about the challenges we faced. They also were proactive in decision making and thought more than one step ahead when confronting problems and solutions.

What did you like least?

We would have preferred the job go a bit faster but in our case, they really wanted certain developers for the job. In the end, it wasn't a big deal.

Describe your overall experience.

Super happy with Thoughtbot. Will use again and gladly recommend.

What did you like best?

ThoughtBot is an outstanding partner! So much more than developers!

What did you like least?

Just wish we could retain them as long term development team.

Describe your overall experience.

ThoughtBot was so good at helping us take an idea from blank piece of paper to an MVP and ultimately into a business. They helped us learn to power, value and viable approaches to user feedback and validation, and through this how to deliver value. Their developers are sharp and overall valued the partnership we forged together.
