Claimed Profile

Haystack isn't just your typical Dev Shop. The secret to our successful projects is creating bridges, instead of walls, between our clients and the technology experts working on their projects. So our Developers are client-facing Consultants. We've found that removing the barriers of communication between our clients and our technologists limits misalignment, boosts empathy, builds passion, and increases paths to success. They listen to your challenges and have the experience and foresight to recommend solutions that they are likely going to be the ones to build themselves. We hire technologists who have both the brains and the demeanor to walk with you through what can otherwise be a stressful experience. Haystack clients truly feel a partnership wherein our team is their team.

We commit to getting your solution right the first time, but we never settle for good enough. We keep learning, keep testing our assumptions, and keep improving your solution so it never grows stale, gets old, or stops meeting your needs. We're a collective of wildly passionate technologists and strategists who constantly seek to understand challenges from every angle and build solutions with positive impact.

Have a vision? Let’s make it a reality.

Describe your project in brief

Partnered to develop, launch and fine-tune a digital platform and mobile app aimed to support individuals and organizations in becoming informed and engaged in their commitment to dismantle systemic racism.

What is it about the company that you appreciate the most?

Their leadership attended and participated in nearly every meeting and was clearly committed both professionally and personally to the success of the project.

What was it about the company that you didn't like which they should do better?

Better predicting upcoming challenges would have been great in some instances. But aside from having a crystal ball, I don't know if that would have been possible for any partner to do.

I worked with Haystack, not as a client but as a designer, on an app for a counseling business. They were super-easy to communicate and collaborate with, and the entire process was painless from start to finish. Looking forward to teaming up with them again in the future!
