A peek at our past work

Case studies:

Other projects:

As a non-profit, it’s critical for the Center for Open Science (COS) to understand and communicate how funding is used. We developed custom Ember.js dashboards for COS that provide visibility into how people are using its system.


Helped the organization report back to its funders, reinforce the value of their investment, and hopefully attract additional funds in the future.

Our partnership with the enterprise app development team from Scout focused on upgrading their app for dog walkers and enhancing its scheduling features. Our first order of business was updating the app to the latest versions of Ember and Ember CLI, adding Ember Suave, and adhering to the new set of ESLint rules. Then, we worked extensively on the appointment scheduling experience using full-screen overlays, Ember Flatpickr, Ember Paper, and Ember Power Select to make creating and editing appointments easier.


Saved users time and improved the experience, driving more repeat business and revenue for Scout.

Our team collaborated with the engineers behind Anvyl’s supplier relationship management software to create a new messaging feature that allows brands and suppliers to communicate directly within the Anvyl app, rather than via email. By integrating many common messaging features, such as threaded replies, in-line editing, avatars, and more, we simplified the experience for both the customer and the supplier.


Customers now receive better, faster service, and suppliers can respond quicker while reducing errors.

After building a proof of concept using Ember.js, this fitness business management app had gradually strayed from best practices. Their software developers brought in our team to get them back on track. We worked side by side to not only apply consistent, up-to-date Ember coding practices (e.g., adding several ESLint rules from eslint-plugin-ember, updating various dependencies, etc.), but also realign the team and get everyone on the same page.


Saved Mariana Tek time and money, increased efficiency, and made onboarding new developers much easier.

We partnered with the Rabble team to bring their open source MUSICat platform up to date. Our work included removing bower in favor of npm, migrating from ic-ajax to ember-ajax, enforcing consistent code quality with ESLint, and other improvements. Our software developers also served as Ember subject matter experts who helped mentor the Rabble team and grow their Ember knowledge.


MUSICat’s platform is faster, more performant, and easier to maintain, and the Rabble team is ready to carry on the work.

Level-up your team with training and coaching

We believe a rising tide lifts all boats. That’s why we not only focus on improving your products through expert engineering, but also on upskilling your team by working together, sharing knowledge, and training.

Giving back for the greater good

Our team does this work for passion, not just for profit. The developer community has helped us grow into the people we are today, and we’re committed to giving back even more than we’ve gained.

Ember.js DC

We organize the Ember.JS DC meetup, and we try to spread the love throughout Virginia and Maryland as well, alternating meeting spots. If you are an Ember enthusiast, of any level, we would love to have you come learn with us!


As a part of our mission to create open source JavaScript Libraries, that can be used for common web app uses, Ship Shape created Shepherd.js. Shepherd.js guides users through a tour of your app and is currently implemented and trusted by brands like Google, Ally and more.

Ember Cares

We spearheaded the efforts behind Ember Cares in 2017, where we created a No Shave November Tomster and Breast Cancer Awareness Zoey and sold merch to raise money for the Cancer Research Institute.
