We design and develop

We are an agile team of designers and developers who write
lean software to grow your business

What we offer

  • Quality

    We love pair programming, peer reviews, test-driven development, working and contributing to open source, and applying design patterns.

  • Productivity

    We release early and often so that you can see progress every week. We are all about rapid prototyping and rapid development.

  • Testing

    With our test-driven development process, our code is not complete without thorough integration, functional and unit tests.

  • Lean Product Consulting

    We will find your riskiest hypotheses and help you define your product's business model. We will build experiments to help you grow faster.

  • A Reliable Team

    We provide software development services to scale your team. Increase your software development speed without sacrificing quality.

  • Product Design

    We will design and implement your Minimum Viable Product. Our goal is to take your vision and build an elegant solution to your problem.

Our Clients

  • It is a rarity to find transparency, thoughtfulness and a superb quality + value equation in an outsourced digital tech team. Ombu Labs was able to bring my vision to life on-line seamlessly, despite the usual start-up constraints of small budgets + short lead-times and high output expectations. Ombu continues, months post-delivery, to stand-behind their product and over-perform from a client services POV— a fact which makes them our digital agency of record.

  • When we interviewed Ernesto for a short term contract project I told him that as the most expensive applicant he would be expected to produce the highest quality of work. Over a year later he and Mauro are an integral part of our team. In addition to producing high quality code they also suggest improvements to our development processes and mentor our new engineers. I would definitely recommend Ombu Labs to a friend in need.

  • I was hesitant to hire a team of developers - I had always assumed that bringing on a full-time team member would make the most sense financially. Would an outside team ever care as much about my business as I do? But my experience working with Ernesto, Cecilia and the whole OmbuLabs team exceeded my expectations. They were able to take my vision and articulate it perfectly, focusing on delivering work that would actually move the needle on my business. Conversions are up, my advertising costs are down, and there's a super short turnaround time whenever I need something new from the Ombu team.

We like working with these technologies

Open Source

As part of the community, we use high quality, secure and stable open source projects. We love to contribute to open source projects which make our lives easier.

We like to open source part of our own code,
