Back in 1998, founder Robert Patrick was 18 when he began consulting and creating software for a number of companies. Straight out of DeVry University, the young entrepreneur established PhD Computing Inc. where we found our place as an enterprise application developer for companies like ADP and Experian. Robert was looking to drive the company into a more design oriented direction and was determined to form a team that could achieve just that. John Driscoll, Jason Martinez, and Cliff Coglietti, a few names that might ring a bell, were all owners of Organic Sales; a design and marketing company focused on mobile applications. Impressed with their work for B of A, PGA, Toyota, and Transamerica; Robert swiftly contracted the Organic Sales squad for a year. In 2011, we then merged the two blooming companies. We app guru sidekicks quickly dove into mobile applications head first.
We began redesigning the company into what it is today, PhD Labs Inc. We have been weighed, we have been measured, and we have proudly been ranked by several best of the industry sites such as Clutch and Best Web Design Agencies. Our canny team has created a unique start up ecosystem to support app oriented companies making us one of the premiere development companies for start ups.
Let us take a minute to explain why we are who we are… With an array of clients, users, and partners depending on us, we pride ourselves in living out a blend of core values. When we transformed into a virtual office we were able to focus our additional energy into delivering technology that touches people’s lives and enhances the human spirit. It’s not arrogance you sense; we just truly believe that our clients’ experience is as important as the technology and design behind our products. Fun and games aside, we provide a creative culture so that all of our employees and partners can excel in their unique gifting.
We don’t trim around the edges; we get straight to the juicy center of it all.
When you hire PhD Labs you’re not just getting developers, you’re getting an actual team. It may be a bouquet of visionary nerds, but we assure you our professionalism shines through the silliness. There are a profound amount of perks with having a project manager, user experience and product designer, multiple developers, assurance testing, and an account manager at your disposal. With a combination of animated personalities and tenacious mentalities, we almost never catch clients yawning during our meetings.
Would you rather be lost in translation, or would you prefer us to take the time to explain ourselves and educate you in the process? Spoiler alert – We’re hoping you answered the latter. We have the knowledge, years of experience, and all it takes for launching your project. Accompany us in our journey to creating a brilliantly functional app catered to your desires, and let’s enjoy a cold one down the road.
