Our Story

Before CD’s and Spotify, Internet Explorer and Google, there was Archie and Excite. That’s where you could find us in December of 1989.

We launched our first website in 1989. It was just a file on ARCHIE. Site # 202, when there were less than 250 websites on the internet. We jumped to Galaxy and then Yahoo.

Our very first major contract was for Steve Job’s at an early NeXT computer. We closely worked with Job’s on the software that ran the “Cube”, which had many of the same features that eventually became the basis of the Apple OSX and IOS operating system.

In 1996 we began spreading our focus to software and apps where we began learning how to code amazing systems.

Headquartered in Old Bellevue, a suburb of Seattle across the floating bridge, Seattle Software Developers has taken advantage of an environment where code is in the air. Our development offices are across the street from the Google and Microsoft campuses, and most of our employees started at Google or Microsoft or Amazon. The proximity isn’t just on the surface; our networks mesh with those tech firms, all while we maintain our fierce independence.

At Seattle Software Developers, we work from the idea up. Whether it’s a software idea that can boost your company, an amazing app idea, or a new solution that could be implemented by tech giants, we can help you make it happen. Even if the idea is just a spark, we’re happy to fuel it and when it’s done we will send you over to the “advertising” department where they can help you boost it on Google like no other.

Our Team

We’re a mix of ex-Google and Microsoft gurus rocking the free world

We all embody the idea that one set of strategies will not serve every firm. That’s why we stay on top of a wide range of strategies that could serve you and were continually monitoring, changing, and morphing.

Maybe your team is in need of custom software that could streamline your order process, or maybe you have the next great app idea. Maybe you need to excite your customers with new features for your app-like games, or maybe your web design isn’t up to standards.

Whatever your needs may be, we can address them all under one roof from software development to branding and advertising.

With access to inside information from experts at Microsoft, Google, and Apple we have maintained a steady working knowledge of what works for our clients, and it will work for you too.

We are the premier Northwest Software development & design firm developing anything you can come up within your mind!

We launched our first website onto the internet offering web-design in 1989 and we are good at trends.

When you know history, you know the future.

Our Process

Getting in touch

First we protect your information with an NDA. Then we meet, at our offices here in Bellevue or on Skype, or on Amazon chime.

These sessions usually end up with lots of free advice and suggestions being given out. (Hey, we can’t help but get excited about stuff like this.) If this should move you to continue with us, we move on to phase two.

Roll the plan

We assign your team a dedicated Project Manager while our coding division in Redmond breaks out the whiteboards to delve deeper into your concept. Be prepared to answer some questions – we want to get this right. At this stage we are listening to YOU and this is usually done in person or conference calls.

Get the estimate

Within about a week, we email you a very educated estimate of the final costs of your tech solution. Once you give us your approval, it’s go time and our coders start working on making your idea a reality.

I don’t normally leave reviews but this company has changed our lives! We run a nationwide storage company with... around 498 locations and we were still using software that was built 1994 that was continually breaking down and then finally the company that built the software went out of business.I was so pleased with professionalism and how they emailed me every day with updates on how much Itwas going to cost.When I gave them the contract, we met weekly with updates and they managed to put something up quickly that allowed us to completely redesigned our business and the way it’s managed. They came in around 15 K more than the other beds but it was worth every penny of it to have a complete business model re-designed in such a way that we save hundreds of thousands of dollars each month.A big thumbs up to the Seattle software team, Julian Valentine and Dan Anderson were heaven sent!Diannaread more

After meeting with several other development firms, I decided to have Seattle Software Developers build a lead... generator app for my practice. From out initial meeting where they mapped out the idea on a white board, I had a very good idea of what to expect and when.The team worked efficiently and had excellent communication throughout the build. The app worked perfectly, and performed better than expected. I am very happy I chose them to develop my custom software and have since hired them to build an app for my wife's business too.read more

Seattle Software Developers were very easy to work with. They came up with some great ideas and designs, and was able... to develop them out quickly. They had a really good grasp of my business and what I needed. They always had good energy and communication was never an issue. Regular update calls from the team was the norm. Their experience really showed through. Overall it felt like working with a member of my own team.read more

I am somebody who does lots of due diligence before I decide to go with a company, especially for something like... building an app. Working with the Seattle Software Developers team was no different. We had a great working relationship with plenty of communication throughout the project. They did a really good job of keeping me well informed, every step of the way. I am very satisfied with the way my app came out. It works flawlessly. Seattle Software exceeding my expectations, and I'm looking forward to my next app development project!read more

We were beginning to wonder if we would ever find a solid software development company we could trust. Then Seattle... Software Developers came along. We heard about them from a friend who said they were easy to work with and would take care of us. 3 years later they continue to exceed our expectations. I am not someone who is easily impressed and rarely does anyone exceed my expectations. Our project manager knew when to contact me with important information and when not to contact me just to "check-in". Running a successful practice keeps me busy enough, it's a breath of fresh air to have competent developers who know what they are doing. We are very pleased with the results!read more
