Featured Projects

Crowd pleaser

Weddingle

Capitalizing on the trend of Wordle, we had a hackathon project and put together a custom wedding-themed Wordle clone. We added a bit of extra flare whenever a word is guessed correctly.

This platform can be repurposed for your business. All you would need to provide is a glossary of terms, and we can provide the rest.

  • TypeScript (React, Tailwind, nx)
  • SQLite (sql.js & web assembly)

Tinder Bot & 'Date-a-Science'

We thought there may have been a security flaw in how Tinder authenticates its users via Facebook. We rolled up our sleeves for a weekend and thankfully found that our suspicions were unfounded and wouldn't have to disclose it to the Tinder team.

Through this process, though, we learned a lot about the Tinder API and decided to apply that knowledge by building an experimentation platform that allows us to run A/B tests on various dimensions of a profile (location, age, bio). We would then use this data to understand human behavior on the world's most popular dating app.

Satellite Imagery Analysis

We use daily/weekly/monthly satellite images from different sources from the last 9 years to analyze features in images at scale (vegetation, city density, etc). Initial data size was about 100TiB with ~1TiB being ingested daily. Project has the potential to grow to 1PiB-5PiB over the coming 1-2 years.

  • Python
  • PostgreSQL
  • Google Cloud Platform

Comedy is a funny business

Mic Manager

Standup comedy is a tough hobby and an even tougher profession. Mic Manager is a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering to help standup comedians discover and manage shows around them.

The combination of Covid temporarily destroying demand and Heroku's platform going through serious problems, we have made the hard decision to sunset Mic Manager. There is definitely some potential here and we may re-platform this some day.

  • Ruby (Rails)
  • JavaScript (React, Bootstrap)
  • PostgresQL
  • Geolocation (GIS)
  • Heroku

  • Product Management (Customer acquisition, usability research)
  • Agile Project Management (Jira, Slack, GitHub)
  • Talent sourcing and management (sourced and hired developers/designers in SF and remote)
  • Ruby (Rails)
  • TempoDB, PostgreSQL

Macro and Systematic Trading

Hedge Fund

Financial industry clients are extremely conservative on what details can be published publicly. This is an ongoing engagement that involves a robust data pipeline and automated reporting. The ultimate goal is to empower traders to make better trading decisions.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

These are questions that we get asked quite a bit... so we'll save you the trouble of asking them and answer them upfront.
What is your team not good at?

Unlike a lot of consultants, we're pretty clear where our strengths lie. We are great at full-stack web apps, relational databases, API integrations, data analysis. We also love helping drive strategy, creating realistic roadmaps, and communicating tradeoffs in a way that you and your team can make well-informed decisions.

We are not so great at low-level programming. Things like custom ROMs/firmware or anything written in C/C++/Rust/Assembly would be something that several of us would love to learn, but we cannot currently offer that as a service.

How do engagements normally start?

We discuss what you're looking for in a 1 hour call. We go over high level business goals, challenges you're experiencing, timeline, and potential services.

If there is a good fit, a proposal will be put together to be reviewed by your team.

What are your payment terms?

We require a 20% deposit for the first milestone to get started.

There is an explicit checkpoint done after the first week. If you are not completely satisfied with the pace and direction of the engagement, we will refund your deposit.
