Software development services for Startups
Launch fast with a proven product development company for startups.
Starting with the challenge you intend to solve, we work with you to analyze the problem and find solutions to best address it.
We prepare a roadmap of our further steps, then move to the product design stage. At this stage we deliver a user experience and user interface that meet your business goals and delight your users. Finally, we help you develop your product and launch it on the market.
We usually start with building an MVP, as this is the most robust approach to product development. However, if you need to build a prototype first, we’d be happy to help you.
For startup accelerators
Help your startups grow their products while we take care of the software.
RubyGarage can be your dedicated technical partner thanks to our well-established product development workflow.
About 20% of startups fail in their first year. Poor technical implementation is among the top reasons for failure. With 7+ years of experience in development software for startups and a stellar track record, we’re truly a reliable technology partner.
Products we’ve built for Upcall, Shopperations, Pair Finance, Billfront, and other startups have turned their founders into rising stars of top accelerators including Y Combinator, Techstars, and Uptech.
Create a product prototype
Get your product prototype by building a simple test version of your software.
We can create a test version of your product in one of two ways. The first option is to create a clickable prototype. The second option is to prepare an MVP of an MVP, or a so-called Minimum Loveable Product that will demonstrate the core product functionality and design and can help you make a great pitch.
You can get a refined prototype in about 2 months with limited resources and budget.Contact us to get a prototype
Build a startup MVP
If you need to validate your business idea fast, think of building a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). It takes us about 4 months to deliver an MVP. We use this time to research your business model and market, define a development roadmap, and build a solution.
Our approach allows us to shorten the delivery cycle and win time for you. You’ll get user feedback early on and know exactly what you need to improve first.Learn more about how we develop an MVP
Startup product development
We go through seven clear stages seven clear stages to bring your idea to life.
We start with business modelling and requirements engineering to set up business goals. Then we proceed with the UX and UI design stages, resulting in backend and frontend development. Eventually, we take care of infrastructure management.
We ensure that your product meets your “now” needs, but we lay a strong technical foundation so we can scale it seamlessly whenever the time comes.Tell us about your product idea
Startup rescue mission

We understand startup culture and its most common issues. And what’s more important, we know how to address them quickly and cost-efficiently.Book a free consultation
An online tool for shopper marketers
One of the co-founders of Shopperations (who has a strong shopper marketer background) came up with the idea to build a custom SaaS product to help her colleagues in retail organize their workflows. RubyGarage was happy to build a product prototype to help the founder succeed in the Uptech and Techstars accelerators and get funded during the seed round stage. Then we brought the entire product to life. We continue to maintain this product and consult on the marketing strategy.View Project
A social trading and investment network
Our cooperation with Sprinklebit began with a rescue mission for their mobile app. We enhanced the initial app, streamlined the development process, and laid the foundation for further app scalability. RubyGarage’s contribution helped Sprinklebit successfully get funded and grow dynamically: currently, the platform is supporting over 483 million users across the globe and is exploiting blockchain technology.View Project
A social voting application for market validation
Our client reached out to us with an idea to build a social voting mobile app. Our team of business analysts, designers, and developers created an MVP so our client could test the idea and gather user feedback. As a result of market validation, our client was able to successfully shift the target audience to business owners and turn their consumer product into a strong marketing business tool.View Project
Outbound call center software for startups
As serial entrepreneurs, Upcall’s founders had fully experienced the challenges of outbound sales. They brought together their expertise and understanding of the market pain points and decided to launch Upcall, a platform that provides on-demand call services. When the founders decided to extend the platform’s feature set, they chose the RubyGarage team. We made the platform scalable and implemented integrations with Intercom, Slack, and Twilio. We also used machine learning tools for voice recognition.View Project

Predictable burn down
We track completed work against the total work scope. This metric allows us to manage project health and stick to the plan.
We make sure that the time it takes to resolve a task remains consistent over time. If the time to complete development tasks increases, we extend the size of your team.
The feature is only completed when it passed all tests and meets customer requirements. That's why we take a complex approach to tracking and analyzing actionable metrics: from tests coverage to customer satisfaction.
