Backblend

Services

We build web and mobile applications, enabled by Node.js on the server side, and modern Javascript frameworks such as Backbone.js/Underscore.js, Angular.js, and a variety of other tools on the client side. We are also experienced in bringing near "native" level performance and polish to mobile platforms using HTML hybrid applications built with Phonegap / Apache Cordova

Our focus is on providing technical services to early and mid-stage startups, with particular attention to polish and performance, great user experience and design, as well as solid backend, database, and API engineering for all clients, whether they’re big or small.
