How We Got Here

We started in 2000 as a two-person company designing and building websites and CD-ROMs. We were motivated by our belief that people deserve products they love to use. We quickly became known for our collaboration with clients, strong concept development and focus on the customer's needs.

Technology doesn't stand still, and neither have we. The industry has evolved, and what we do has changed. However, experience has merely strengthened our founding beliefs and approach to software development.

In 2011, after seeing Agile deliver better teamwork, higher productivity and greater business value at Boost, we began training and coaching in Agile and Lean. Drawing on our years of experience managing software projects, we support our clients to build their own capability to deliver better software, faster.

Today, we specialise in web and mobile application development using collaboration as the means of managing projects and delivering quality.

Community

We are active in the development and Agile communities in Wellington. We share our experiences and expertise on The Board, a YouTube channel about all things Agile.

From our Wellington office, every month, we run Scrunch: the Scrum Practitioners' Lunch. We also contribute to the Startup scene around New Zealand.

Things we love

We like getting involved in projects close to our hearts. Boost's first freebie project was a website devoted to the magnificent Bucket Fountain in Cuba Street.

More recently we built the Wildlife Tracker app for the Kea Conservation Trust to help locals and tourists identify and help protect the iconic and endangered kea.
