Lovable Technology hires expert engineers with a product-first mindset. People you merely need to create alignment with, and can trust to deliver on your business goals and product vision without an overly detailed specification.
Our engineers are comfortable in a wide range of projects from greenfield to massive at-scale codebases. We are also at home using most common technology stacks as well as some not-so-common ones.
Containerization has officially arrived and it is lowering operational costs by 30-45%, making developers more productive, and decreasing errors. Releases become simple and rollbacks are automatic.
We utilize the latest tools to provision your infrastructure in a version controlled way, and we use our own proprietary container monitoring suite to keep things running smooth.
Blockchain technology will soon become available on any networked device. It will be built into your browser, your phone, and many more devices like smart meters.
As an internal test of the technology, we recently built our own open source Etherium micro-payments solution called TinyPay. It uses a smart contract. Once payment is confirmed we release funds (ether) to the seller and access to the buyer.
Our job is to help you find ways to make web and mobile applications that your community loves. That provide faster, more intuitive, interfaces to the value you provide. All designers love building beautiful things, but the product and the people come first, always.
Our design approach is to very rapidly execute upon your business hypothesis, then testing and iterating just as rapidly. We do this by going from user flows to pen interface sketches to code with as little abstraction as possible. Knowing that good is the gateway to great and iterating until we've exceeded that expectation.
If you're building for the Internet of 2017 and beyond, you had best be building products for the platform of today. It should not be a shock, that “Mobile” is the platform of the present.
Even if you're building a web app you should design it mobile-first, that mobile web app can be the foundation for a MVP native app. Our UX/UI, Product, and Visual Designers pride themselves in shipping applications with mobile interfaces that are as lovable as they are viable, today.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are the Internet platforms of the future. The only question is how many years until the technology is small and simple enough to become part of your daily life as seamlessly as your phone.
As we near this “Augmented Reality Internet,” designers need to become aware of our responsibility to improve not just business outcomes but human outcomes. "Ontological Designing" might prove an important philosophy when approaching that work.
Strategy is where Lovable Technology truly shines. The entire heart of this experiment we started 4 years ago were several strategic business hypothesis, evaluations we made based on careers in Tech which taught us to recognize two very important things which are “What’s Now” and “What’s Next.”
One of the ways we use our own processes to provide value to clients is through our Hack Weeks. These are brief engagements with a hyper focused goal. This works really well for a MVP Concept, early stage technical and design strategy, problem solving, or team training.
Our Hack Week engagements are hyper-focused weeks where we deploy our strengths to move your initiatives forward during tricky phases. These are particularly useful when establishing a product’s concept, MVP feature set, specification, flow, prototyping, etc.
They're also super useful for getting an outside perspective. This could be when thinking through a potential pivot, wrestling with a persnickety engagement issue, or maybe your processes aren't scaling and you want some new ideas. These are all ways we've used Hack Weeks to help companies like yours.
Lovable Technology employs a team of professionals that understand how to leverage their expertise (be it technology or product side) to squeeze the utmost business value out of it. We're also useful at helping others learn to do the same.
We provide focused group engagements with learning based on your team’s needs including technologies, methodologies, project management, product design, etc.
We also love speaking at incubators, hackathons, meetups, conferences, and team events.

It shouldn't be a surprise, given our approach, that we provide great value, but our clients also rated us “Better than Average” on Overall Cost. The Best Value at Better Cost?
We provide a wide spectrum of engineering and strategic technical needs. Seeking to not only provide great software, but software that provides great business value to our customers.
Our pragmatic (people first design, rapid launch, testing, and iteration) design process make us cost effective, but it also means we can direct our iteration on where it hurts vs. vanity projects.
Project success always comes down to creating alignment, transparency, opening channels for synchronous and asynchronous collaboration, and creating tight feedback loops.
