We are niche software development consulting company. Our working style is different than most "agencies" because we work long-term with our clients building out their high impact technology by becoming our customer's technology division and taking on the responsibilities of the CTO-level down.

We use the latest technology and invent new technology. We value business sense as well as technical skill. We are based in San Francisco, but our team lives in many places around the world. Sometimes, we also launch our own products.

Useful IO has been writing software for very successful companies in Silicon Valley since 2011. Collectively, the team has founded 6 startups. We've given tech talks in SF, Tokyo, Paris, London, Athens, Warsaw and Taipei.

Our Principles

  • Change is necessary.

    ExampleThe right solution today might be the wrong solution tomorrow, and that's ok. Sometimes we have weekly meetings, some times we don't, it depends on if it's the best way to collaborate.

  • Do things for a reason.

    ExampleLots of teams get sucked into busy work. We train our clients and ourselves to ask for things that matter and only do those things. We're constantly working to eliminate waste.
