About us

Founded in 2014, we believe that search is still not believed to be key to success. Looking at customers today and successful websites, we find "discovery mode browsing" and responsive design coming to stay. Mobile is on the rise and you got to do something about it.

Our goal is to develop a platform that enables you to build a search-centric app easily on top of your data. We use elasticsearch for that and combine it with other modern technologies like MongoDB to build a rock-solid platform for search-based apps.

On top of technology, we believe in design. It just is not "ok" any more to have 8px fonts and a website that doesn't flex to your screen. Web is not print. With Bootstrap and other frameworks on the rise there is no excuse any more. Building a search-based application in this world means you got to take everything into account, device support, clever layout tricks, mobile networks that behave differently than your network cable and still it has to cope with Internet Explorer.
