In June of 2016 we were engaged by Procore to join the engineering team to build their Ruby on Rails SaaS platform. Initially we will be building many of their ERP integrations.

This is a current engagement.


Fin & Field

Fin & Field is all about the sportsman. Dedicated to those in search of their next outdoor adventure and to the outfitters, captains, and guides that make it all possible.

In May of 2014 we were engaged by Fin & Field to join the engineering team to build their Ruby on Rails SaaS platform. The Fin & Field platform provides a large-scale ecosystem to efficiently connect the huge market of hunters and anglers with the hunting guides, hunting lodges, boat captains and marinas in the US. The platform integrates many of the general concepts found in social networking and booking sites like Facebook and AirBnB.

We were involved in all aspects of the development of this service from the first day code was written using Ruby on Rails 4, Ruby 2.1, CSS, Bootstrap 3, AngularJS, Javascript, CoffeeScript, jQuery and HAML. We also integrated numerous third-party add-ons and external services including HireFire, New Relic, Mail Chimp, Google Maps and OptinMonster.


The Real Real

The RealReal is the leader in authenticated luxury consignment. They offer the largest selection of pre-owned and authenticated luxury items including men’s and women’s luxury fashion, fine jewelry & watches and fine art.

In October of 2015 we were engaged by TheRealReal on a short-term basis to join the engineering team to help out with a backlog of Business Intelligence (BI) programming tasks and other work. In addition to the BI work, we helped them fix a number of bugs as well as helping them catch up on technical debt on a Rails 3 architecture.

We integrated with the development and quality assurance teams using Slack, Pivotal Tracker, GitHub. The BI technologies used were Snowplow and Optimizely.

The platform is implemented using Ruby on Rails running in the cloud. The website employs the Responsive web design (RWD) approach that also has to work on mobile platforms.

This is a current engagement.



RightScale provides a complete management platform to design, deploy, and manage the lifecycle of mission-critical cloud deployments.

We worked with Rightscale for two years starting in January 2012 on their command-line driven, server template test automation framework with a domain-specific DSL known affectionately as the Virtual Monkey.

Server templates provide a repeatable set of bash scripts or chef recipes that can be applied to a server launched in the cloud. We took over the Virtual Monkey and maintained and extended it into the "Next Generation" phase. This work included revamping the domain-specific DSL to support many new advanced features like test code sharing, test case tagging and shared helpers.

Then we hot-rodded it with an additional software layer called the Rocket Monkey. This new layer of the software stack provides a Google Drive matrix-driven interface that allows simplified definition of server template tests across multiple clouds. It also provides a very rich set of web-based reports and embedded Google charts. We maintained and extended the Virtual Monkey server template in both RightScript and Chef-based versions. We ported the entire stack from Ruby 1.8.7 to 1.9.3. We supported teams in the Santa Barbara area as well as overseas in Belarus.

We worked with numerous clouds in this engagement including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Rackspace, CloudStack, Google Compute Engine (GCE), Azure and HP.
