    A local agency with global clients

    While makandra is based in Germany, a large percentage of our development and operations services is delivered to companies in the United States and the wider European Union.

    We are used to working within international teams, communicating remotely with tools like Slack, Skype or appear.in. All our engineers speak fluent English. With an issue tracker like Trello, JIRA, or Pivotal Tracker you always know which stories have been completed and which changes we are currently working on.

    Open source at makandra

    We are actively contributing to the open source community. On top of more than 3200 guides and tutorials on makandracards we maintain popular Ruby libraries such as active_type, Spreewald, and Consul.

    One of our latest and largest open-source projects is Unpoly. Unpoly provides traditional web applications with modern and fast-responding views, without requiring the application to be rebuilt with a complex Javascript frontend framework.

    We support these organisations:
