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.

Working closely with Steve Job’s at an early NeXT, we worked on the software that ran the “Cube” which is was the basis of the Apple OSX and IOS operating system.

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

Headquartered in Old Bellevue near Seattle, we’ve taken advantage of an environment where code is in the air. Our coders and engineers are next door to the Google and Microsoft campuses. The proximity isn’t just on the surface; our networks mesh with those of Microsoft and Google, 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 issues may be, we can address them all under one roof.

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.

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

Your team’s dedicated Project Manager at 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 Skype.

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.
