Web & Application Development

We build reliable software

Our experienced engineers love building software. Equally comfortable working on our own or alongside your team, we deliver well-designed, well-documented, and reliable software in small and frequent releases. By leveraging cutting-edge tools and a fully automated build pipeline, we continuously deliver shippable code you can rely on.

As polyglot programmers, we embrace a wide variety of languages, tools, and platforms. That’s not to say we’re indifferent to technology selection. We strongly believe in using the best, most productive tools available to reduce the time, effort, and cost of maintenance of your software investment.

Systems Integration

We integrate systems cleanly

Point Slope has broad experience integrating both open-source and proprietary systems, from ticketing and reservations to web, mobile and content management applications. Whether you need to connect your datacenter to the cloud, route messages among any number of enterprise applications, or unlock the data in your warehouse, we know how to get the job done.

We begin each engagement by understanding your desired solution’s functional, operational, and performance characteristics. We then add the appropriate tools and controls to isolate failures in one system from propagating to another while providing visibility into the communication pathways between them. The end result is a robust integration you can be confident in.

Architecture & Design

We design systems for maintainability

Good software isn’t built by accident. The best way to ensure the success of a software system is to bake in operational concerns from the very beginning. Resilient architectures anticipate failures and respond to variations in the operating environment. By dynamically scaling hardware capacity to meet demand and routing requests around faulty components, skillful design allows modern applications to avoid downtime.

At Point Slope, we prefer to compose software from small, independent components and services that perform a singular task well. The smaller surface area of these services enables faster development. But perhaps most importantly, component independence lets one piece of your business’ critical functionality to move through the value chain without being held ransom by another.

Quality Audits & Technology Reviews

We protect your technology investment

We’ve helped a number of clients mitigate their risk in high-visibility technology projects by providing an independent third-party assessment of project deliverables. We’ve also facilitated collaborative code reviews with internal teams in a safe, non-threatening professional environment with a focus on fixing the problem and not the blame.

Our approach to software evaluation combines automated analysis with human inspection to present you with a clearer picture than tools alone can supply. We’d love to be your second pair of eyes.

Management, Mentorship & Coaching

We help your team realize its potential

One of the most rewarding aspects of our work is interacting with great people. As individuals who have been fortunate enough to have great mentors over the course of our careers, we recognize the importance of good coaches. Whether by guiding teams through tricky implementations or reinforcing good development habits, we can help your team unlock its full potential.

Point Slope also offers specialized group and individual instruction in a wide variety of technologies and technical project management for development and integration initiatives of nearly any size.

Point Slope Rescue

We help turn troubled projects around

While many technology partners shy away from pre-existing troubled projects, we understand that the best way to build a lasting relationship is by helping our clients when they need us most. Whether you’ve come to realize that things aren’t going well or merely suspect it, we can provide you with an independent assessment of your project’s health at a low, fixed price.

We’ll document our findings along with a high-level plan to correct deficiencies and salvage your investment. Contact us today to set up a risk-free initial consultation. We’re always ready to listen and help you get your project back on the right track.
