Let’s talk about your project

Experience Dedicated Service for Large-Scale Projects

While we’ve become industry leaders – experts and core developers of languages like Sass/CSS and Django/Python that large companies rely on – we intentionally keep our team small. Our size allows us to move fast and integrate with your team for an agile and collaborative process.

Let’s create a beautiful web app that reflects your unique vision.

Working with OddBird was the best outsourcing experience I’ve ever had. It didn’t feel like outsourcing at all. OddBird became an extension of our team bringing UX, frontend, and backend brilliance to take MetaDeploy from an idea into a production application.

—Jason Lantz, Sr. Director of Release Engineering at Salesforce.org

Other developers build exactly what you say, or they don’t understand, and develop the wrong thing. OddBird always thinks about the project goals. I defer to the team expertise now, which makes a better result.

—Rohit Puranik, Founder at Lab06

Since OddBird thinks about handoff from the beginning, maintenance has been super easy. For example, 100% unit test coverage was a given. I never had to ask for it.
