Our fleet of specialties

One of the best frameworks for fast, reliable builds, especially complex apps and dashboards. Ember's opinionated structure lends well to efficiency and organization.


A performant framework used to create flexible, universal Vue.js web apps, thanks to its simple routing and out-of-the-box optimizations.


A nimble React framework for production with lots of magic built in, from server-side rendering for enhanced SEO to internationalization features.


Match mocks from designers with ease, and automagically remove all unused CSS with this convenient framework.


Only pay for the computing you need, scale quickly, and reduce maintenance with serverless applications. We’ll show you how.

Cloud Native

Say goodbye to being locked into vendors, and deliver well-tested, secure products faster with this platform-agnostic methodology.

I loved working with Ship Shape. They helped our small team build a product from the ground up and were strong partners every step of the way. Their domain expertise in Next.js and React helped lay the foundation for a scalable codebase, and they were great at ensuring we adhered to engineering best practices. Every member of the team was a pleasure to work with and (best of all) we ended up launching our MVP on schedule!
