• I co-founded OddBird with my brothers in 2008 to create scalable, accessible, and performant web applications with a human-centered design.

    Over the years, we’ve become industry leaders – creating and contributing to the open source languages and tools that millions of developers and larger companies rely on. We provide enterprise-level expertise, with the focus and personal attention of a boutique.


    Working with OddBird was the best outsourcing experience I’ve ever had. OddBird became an extension of our team.

    Jason Lantz, Salesforce.org (MetaDeploy)

    Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.

    Rohit Puranik, Lab06 (MedCurbside)

    OddBird is high-caliber and nimble. Innovative at heart. Together, we fundamentally transformed the Chicago public school system.

    Furman Brown, Sensible Innovation (TegyTime)

    Since OddBird thinks about handoff from the beginning, maintenance has been super easy. For example, 100% unit test coverage was a given. I never had to ask for it.
