    We hired The Gnar Company to build a manager portal as well as a proprietary web software solution that will automate their distribution of client data using Ruby on Rails. I found everything impressive about GNAR. Each individual I worked with was highly skilled in their respective roles and all fantastic to work with. The communication was exceptional and they offered out great ideas, more efficient ways things could be done if applicable and were cost conscious.

    The Gnar Company developed a React Native mobile app for a software company. Gnar learned all designs and implementation initiatives, created the app infrastructure, and connected it to the core API of the client's system. Project was delivered on time and we were able to get the product implemented in a testing environment with relative ease of use. The communication and project management were very professional throughout the process and attention to detail was followed throughout the process.

    An advertising technology company engaged The Gnar Company to augment their software development resources. Using Golang and React, The Gnar Company supported the full stack development of an application. The Gnar Company dedicated two experienced software engineers who successfully facilitated the product’s development. The team adopted internal project management tools and effectively deployed them. Their seamless integration with the internal team mitigated any concerns about disruption.

    They were friendly, smart, engaging, overly competent, and competitively priced. After a few meetings with the founding team, I was confident they would deliver on what they promised and they did. We were also able to sit down face-to-face, which was comforting and valuable.

    We met with several firms when looking for help with this project. Gnar stood out for a couple reasons; during our initial talks they had a grasp of the projects challenges and some good insights based on past experience for how to approach them, were willing to work in a style that matched our style and were willing to work alongside our team, making sure our engineers fully understood the code they would inherit.

    The Gnar totally integrated with our in-house team. They provided both horsepower and additional expertise to help us to architect and deliver everything from minor bug fixes to major new features. They quickly earned the respect of our team and became a trusted resource. Gnar was easy to deal with from a business perspective, and the talent they delivered was top-notch. We would highly recommend The Gnar Company to anyone looking to accelerate development.

    Review Date: 20 October, 2020
    Gnar's test-driven development methodology gave us a lot of peace of mind in avoidance of regression issues as the app scales; I chose Gnar because of their warranty on the code they provided. I actually thought they were foolish to be offering a guarantee on code being defect-free...how could this be profitable!? But then I realized they provide this warranty because issues almost never come up. With the test-driven approach, they know they know that new code won't cause something else to break
