ABOUT

In Portland, and after 30+ years in software, weird definitely works.

From sharing a space with Soundgarden in the 90s, to having a bulldog in our bullpen.

Over the years, Portland Software Developers has had quite the journey. Way back in the prehistoric era, well, the late 80s, there were a mere 250 websites live on the Internet. Our big break came when Steve Jobs asked us to assist him in building the software that ultimately ran the “Cube”.

Hit fast forward on your tape deck to the early 90s, us four amigos packed up and loaded a U-Haul truck with our sights set on Bellevue, the techy, but suburban little sister of Seattle, and left Palo Alto in the dust.

Because we strategically headquartered this office, we’re able to cherry-pick our developers from the Microsoft and Google campuses nearby.

We’re happiest when we’re building custom software systems that help to optimize your software’s performance, while also taking into account your needs – both now and in the future.

We set ourselves apart from the giant corporations by offering something they can’t –  personable solutions created by real people.

At Portland Software Developers, we work from the ground up. We know that apps are only as strong as the foundational code they’re built from.

Oh, and that’s Lucy, the resident bulldog. She’s our top-performing employee and gets paid in kibble and belly rubs.

Your clients are changing.

We were there before AOL pinged “you’ve got mail”, Tom was your only friend on MySpace, Facebook was only open to college students, and Instagram wasn’t even a thought.

When you were pressing ‘7’ four times to type an ‘s’ and the only mobile app was Snake, Portland Software Developers was creating software into the early morning hours. We’ve consistently pushed the frontier of digital technology into uncharted territory since 1989, blazing a trail that others would soon follow.

We’re proud to be the pioneers in our field, developing solutions for our clients that actually work. Since day one, that’s been our priority.

We burn the midnight oil for you.

Get in touch.

Are you ready? Send us an email – we’ll get you on our calendar for a meeting at our office. We’re ready to get to know you, your preferences, and your goals. Not in Portland? We can still have a chat through Google Hangouts or Zoom.

Get a plan.

After we’ve talked it over, we’ll connect you with your very own project manager – don’t mind the coders running around in the back with the whiteboard, we keep them around to bring your idea to life while we ask you some clarifying questions. We want to get this right.

Get the estimate.

After about a week has gone by, we’ll have a plan in place (so clear, you could see through it) and we can provide you an estimate of the total costs of your project. Once you give us the green light, it is go time.

We live design and breathe code.

Leverage the power of that tiny “Mic Icon”

In Portland, the city that works, we couldn’t be happier with how diverse our team is. We’re made up of a colorful assortment of designers, tech nerds, and coders – and it’s pretty obvious we all love what we do. It’s evident in our quality of work. While most of our team got started at Microsoft, Google, and Amazon, so once they got some real-world knowledge at those tech giants, we lured them over to our greener pasture.

We’re the best at what we do, and we have fun doing it!

Ready to make history?

Have you made it this far through our site, and still think we’re cool, if not a little weird? Perfect. We’re here to disrupt the market while we build cool stuff with you.

Nothing is greater than launching a new app and getting to watch it move through its lifecycle. We know that by helping your idea succeed will make you money – helping us to succeed and make money, too. We know this is your idea, but we’ve got skin in the game, too.
