Life at DockYard.

Learning & Sharing

Our teamwork and experience together is what drives our curiosity. DockYarders are teachers and learners, blending knowledge and skill across disciplines in an effort to grow ourselves, our family, and our greater community. Meet our team.

80% of DockYard time is spent creating products with clients while 20% is invested back in ourselves and the community.

  • For DockYard

    We aim to improve human capabilities through our own projects, our internal tools, and the many user experience challenges we choose to take on.

  • For our Clients

    A diverse set of challenges for every project keeps us on our toes. This encourages adaptability, but also creates a deep respect for core processes.

  • For Community

    Everything we do for DockYard and our clients provides opportunity to help the community. This may be realized in many forms such as guides or open source code.

A special kind

We value the ability to empower one another. We’re the kind of people who see potential in ideas when others don’t. We provide the necessary insight and expertise to make such ideas a reality, for ourselves, our clients, and our greater community.

    Professionals, Not Hackers

    Building Platforms

    We build applications that have lasting impact. Our applications make it easy for teams to extend, maintain, and continue their growth.

    Learning & Growing

    The web doesn’t stand still. We’re constantly providing value in knowing where the web is going (in some cases leading the way) and guiding our customers towards that path.

    Sharing

    We share our collective knowledge with the community through blog posts, releasing open source software, detailing design strategies, speaking at meetups and conferences, and running workshops.
