Wizard Development

Building Better Products with Stronger Teams

Process Matters.

We work with project managers and dev teams to eliminate the difficulties that come with launching new projects and features. Our approach delivers changes quickly and incrementally, allowing for changes throughout the process. Tested code ensures that launches are seamless and anxiety free. This not only creates great websites, but a healthy environment for innovation.

Product Development

Make your software work for you. You know your business, we know how to build it. We build the tools that your team uses to keep the edge in your market and the apps that allows you to provide services in new and unique ways.

Skill Sharing

You know how to build your product. We know how to improve your flow. There's no such thing as magic. How you work affects the purpose of your work. We teach you best practices that you'll use every day.

Exceptional Clients

Our first goal with The Winnower was to address site performance and scalability. Bugs had become a major issue and the architecture was no longer appropriate. Refactoring, feature by feature, and adding testing, we ended up with a more flexible and less scary system. Deploy days previously filled with dread became filled with joy. New features could be implemented in a fraction of the time without crippling other site functions and losing developers in major rewrites. We are now focusing on new and exciting features and are excited to help The Winnower change the way research is published and reviewed.

"Wizard Development identified and solved problems I didn't even know we had, but would have caused us big problems. Our platform became much more stable and reliable and it was all due to them. They take a holistic view on web development, saving us time and money as we grow." - Josh Nicholson, Founder

We started working with One Month not long after their graduation from Y Combinator. We provided the development expertise to help expand their platform to handle their growing business. No longer being constrained by the speed of their development, they expanded their classes, marketing, and student experience. Now thousands of students are able to get the skills they need to launch their careers in 30 minutes a day, for 30 days.

"I was able to work on the business and know that we had our development covered." - Mattan Griffel, CEO
