What do we do?

Gigster lets anyone build high quality software at an affordable cost. You just tell us what you want built and we instantly assemble a high quality team of product managers and engineers to build it. We work with individuals, small businesses and enterprises. By automating aspects of the development and project management, we are able to drive down the cost of software and improve developer efficiency.

Why join us?

1) We've signed deals to work with some of the largest companies in the world, including IBM, Mastercard, Gatorade, Pepsi and NASDAQ.

2) Our revenue has grown 30x of the last year and we are now on an eight figure annual revenue run rate. Our company is only 18 months old.

3) Creating high quality software today is an expensive process that is only accessibly to well educated or wealthy people. We're making it easy for anyone to have access to high quality software, that improves their lives, at low cost. This is a huge market and we're also excited about the impact having affordable, good software on demand will have on the world.

4) We have an experienced team of repeat founders. Our CEO, Roger Dickey, previously founded Mafia Wars which was acquired by Zynga and he's an angel investor in over 70 companies.

Technical challenges

1) We're automating the process of developing software itself. This is a hard data problem, we are gathering lots of data on every aspect of the software development process for building specific features so we can accurately identify exactly how long it'll take to build them.

2) To gather the data we need to automate the software development process we're building a lot of data infrastructure. We need to build data pipelines that work and are robust.
