Work

Who we’ve worked with

  • When McGraw-Hill Education decided it was time to rebuild their decade-old, industry-leading educational software they trusted DockYard to bring them into the future. We added engineering capacity to their growing Ember.js team and helped lead the architectural efforts and kept launch on-schedule.

  • Nasdaq hired DockYard to build out an Ember.js application to facilitate a blockchain-based equity application. We were involved with the architecture and implementation of the Ember application, collaborating with their backend team.

  • In 2013 the DNC approached DockYard for assistance in updating their Phone Tool application. DockYard has deep roots in the Democratic technology community and we delivered the updated product on time and on budget.

  • Openbay approached DockYard to help build their MVP application. We branded, designed, and developed the marketplace that connects vehicle service providers with customers in need of competitive pricing and servicers they can trust.

  • Flywheel is a competitive, in-classroom spin cycling experience. Flywheel hired DockYard to rebuild their Windows-based applications as a modern web-based suite of tools. DockYard identified high-value UX enhancements with the existing application, working closely with Flywheel instructors to provide a modern redesign that was then built into a web application with Ember.js.

  • Our developers worked with a large team of Constant Contact developers, designers, and managers. We primarily worked with Rails server side code, contributed to internal Ruby libraries, and performed application optimizations.

  • SOG approached DockYard to improve the quality of code in their existing Ember.js application. The engagement grew to a rebuild of the Ember.js application implementing our best practices and a rebuild of the Node.js backed with Elixir/Phoenix. DockYard was responsible for working alongside the SOG engineers as well as managing the project.
