thoughtbot is a design and development consultancy that brings your digital product ideas to life. 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?

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.
