At Sanctuary — we’re a different type of product shop. Based in NYC’s Chinatown, the way we approach building things is more like a restaurant than a traditional agency, with an emphasis in providing our clients with an outspoken sense of layman comfort and hospitality.

We build high-design technology, with clients like General Electric, The Light Phone, Herman Miller, Adobe, Dig Inn and many others. We partner with the best design shops in NYC like Gin Lane, RoAndCo, PlayLab & Human NYC to create world class user interfaces & digital experiences.

That same thoughtfulness is applied inward, too. We understand that technologists & engineers have a strong sense of art and integrity, and are happier being a part of a team that promotes those values.

Engineering team and processes

On Monday, we'll run sprint planning, allocate tickets for the week, and update our clients. Each day following we'll do our standup at 11am, and on Friday, we'll run retrospective to round off the week.

We use Zenhub to manage our kanban board, and employ a strict git-flow process to ensure code is thoroughly reviewed before merging.

Technical Challenges

Currently, we're moving all of our frontend codebases over to typescript. In addition, we're building the Operating System and Cloud Services for a new mobile cell phone that is launching on the market.

We're big on typed languages, functional programming, and stateless, highly concurrent APIs.
