Professional software development, from automation to web apps

Whatever your next project needs, we can deliver

We have the skills and experience you need

We don't waste your time

We're excellent at making the distinction between the features you need and those you don't, saving you tens of thousands of dollars.

Broad Technical Skills

We are proficient with quality languages and frameworks including: Ruby on Rails, Elixir / Phoenix, NodeJS, Ember and React.

Rescue your Legacy Code

Large codebases get complicated and unwieldy over time. We specialise in refactoring and simplifying existing codebases, leaving your team free to ship important features.

Thanks for your hard work and professionalism, it's appreciated
Martin Stannard, Blake Education


We worked with Blake full-time for 8 months supporting their teams developing several of their Ruby on Rails software products.

We reduced complexity by putting complex functionality into simple workflows. We reduced technical debt, and worked together on strategies to ensure long term code quality.
We migrated their front-end software to the latest version of the Ember JS framework, porting old Ember code to the new Ember 2.X way of doing things.

Our Services

Bespoke Development

Whether it's a custom build, or a rebuild, we can take your project from its earliest stages right through to completion with careful guidance and a pragmatic focus on iterative feature development.

We have a lot of experience working with existing software teams to identify productivity bottlenecks that are costing you money unnecessarily. We have a proven track record of rescuing applications from the complexity that has been slowing you down.

Mentoring Your Team

Are there members of your team who need extra support, or to get up to speed quickly? We can provide education and support to your junior team members if your own team doesn't have the time.

Refactoring Legacy Systems

Is a big list of technical debt getting your team down? Is it slow to add new features? We can refactor your system for maintainability, and fix bugs that are causing your team headaches, then they can focus on the fun stuff like building new features!

We'd love to hear from you!
