I've relied on Railsware for core software engineering across two high-paced startups. The skill level of their engineers is very strong and they work well with an existing US team. I've worked with other consultancies in the past that worked on the separate projects than the rest of the team, which is fine. But if you want to solve a bigger problem or work on really more complicated things, you need one larger cohesive team. And that's one of the values I get from Railsware - they're actually embedded into my team.

Railsware also brought in a testing culture into the company. Before they joined, we had very low test coverage and when we did releases, the quality of these releases was mediocre at best. After Railsware, we now have a ton of automated tests and as a result, the quality of our releases has improved and thus the speed of them as well.

Working with Railsware provides many benefits, but their focus on writing solid maintainable code and a strong work ethics are what elevates them above their peers.
