Roles We Provide
What Zipdev Clients are Saying
“Zipdev really helped LÜK get our first V1 of our product into the market. Their developers were in the same time zone as us, and we got a much better rate than if we were to hire developers in the US. They were really great with communicating the progress of our project and we’re always there to help.”
– Zack Parker
CEO @ LÜK
“The ease of communication and scheduling with our Tijuana-based QA team made it feel like they were in an office across town, not in a different country. After working with international teams in Asia and South America, we knew how important immediate communication was for effective software development. Having our Zipdev team in the same timezone easily doubled our company’s efficiencies while keeping our costs under control.”
– Aaron Martlage
CEO and Founder @ Tourrs
“Custom application development is hard. Launching a start-up is, too. Designing interfaces, writing code, marketing and selling your product, making ends meet–these are all-consuming tasks. ZipDev’s help with writing/implementing code and their contributions to product design over the past year and a half have really permitted our web-based start-up to take off. Without them, we’d still be spinning our wheels at the starting line; with them, we’re starting to think about what startup model we want to pursue next!”
– Anna Saucier
Founder @ FCPro
“As a business owner, trusting someone else to help build your product isn’t always easy at first. It’s been almost two years since we started working with ZipDev to help build our product, and it has been one of the best decisions our company has ever made. Despite having a large in house development team, we have leveraged ZipDev developers, designers and currently have a dedicated QA engineer that has been such a great culture fit he is like one of our own. Mike and Daniel are reliable, professional and have executed on every promise they have ever made to our company. I look forward to working with them for years to come.”
– Marc Baron
Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer @ Course Key
