We build outstanding websites, web-based software and mobile apps. We also love people and believe they deserve websites and software that are easy to use.
Mobile Friendly Web Development
Is your website mobile friendly? With the rise of smartphone and tablet computers, you can no longer afford to ignore the experience of mobile users. We specialize in building websites that are “responsive”, i.e. designed to work elegantly on all types of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers.
Custom Web Application Programming
We build web and mobile apps for startups and existing businesses. Web-based software we’ve built currently powers some of our clients’ core business infrastructure.
We take pride in architecting solutions that are easy for people to use. Obsessive attention to user experience, combined with very high quality programming code, sets us apart from a lot of other shops.
Some of the languages and technologies we work with include:
- CakePHP, Laravel
- HTML, CSS, HAML, SASS
Website Design & Development
We take a content-first approach to designing websites. This means that our designers and developers work closely with our content strategists and information architects to create beautiful websites that are effective and easy to navigate.
Because we understand the importance of maintaining good, relevant, up-to-date content on the web, we build easy to use systems to enable our clients to keep their websites updated in house. Unlike the cookie cutter content management systems that drive most web managers crazy, our systems are custom built to support each of our client’s unique content needs.
We also take into account that mobile web users are a rapidly increasing demographic, especially with the proliferation of tablet computers such as the iPad and Android tablets. We use a coding methodology called Responsive Web Design to detect the size of each user’s device, and adjust the website appropriately so that all of your visitors will have an experience that is appropriate for the device they are using, whether it is a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop, a desktop computer, or a television.
Services we provide as part of web development projects include:
- Responsive web design
- Content management systems (CMS)
- Custom web application development
- iPhone, iPad, Android, and mobile apps
- Information architecture
- User experience design and testing
- Content strategy
- Interactive data visualization tools
We recently developed a web application for the U.S. State Department. This app provides sophisticated mapping and data functionality to document foreign direct investment in the United States, and includes a backend for data management. The app is now live at www.fdifinder.org.
Great software is compassionate software. This means that we consider user experience to be as important as correct functionality. Empathy towards a website’s end-users and administrators results in user experiences that are friendly, intuitive, and efficient, and typically results in happy customers and better sales.
We’re currently on the lookout for a senior web programmer who can take ownership of complex projects and sometimes assume the lead within our small development team.
We’re more interested in your intellect, curiosity, and passion than your specific repertoire of languages. You are someone who understands that the tools and languages are constantly evolving, and you like to keep up.
If you’re a great programmer wanting a better work life in a company that considers all of its employees human beings first, send us a note and we’ll talk.
“Treetop has been there 110% for us from Day One — patient, understanding, responsive and creatively helping us move forward to achieve our goals.” – Bob Benish, COO, PSCA.
