Look around at the cream of the crop in the software industry, and you’ll see many different viewpoints, approaches, and aspirations around technology. But there’s one thing that bonds us all: a collective frustration with bad software. We detest endless loading screens, simple actions that take a half dozen taps, inexplicable error states, and worst of all, a complete lack of empathy for the needs of the human being who’s just trying to get something done.
Postlight was born out of this loathing for badly designed and engineered software. We cheer when we see new modern upstarts disrupt entrenched, legacy businesses, and when we see organizations invest in digital in smart ways. Fundamentally, we believe in the transformative power of great digital platforms — fast, modern solutions with intuitive interfaces that empower and serve their constituents. Great software, at scale, can change the world.
As we come upon the second anniversary of the pandemic, our lives are more dependent on digital experiences than they have ever been. The pandemic has been a growth-driver for the software industry, and for Postlight. Our company doubled in size and impact in the past year. We turned 6 years old, we zipped past the 100-employee mark, we transitioned our leadership team, and we grew our Lebanon office. As we’ve scaled, we’ve increased our impact across our client portfolio. We shipped new work, our strategy arm has grown and evolved, and we’ve added new capabilities like content strategy and support engineering to our offering.
The more we grow, the more we know: We’re software people at heart, but we are helping our clients achieve business outcomes.
The power of partnership
Postlight is a premium, full-service digital partner that creates lasting change for your business.
We’re growing, and our mission is to make growth available to everyone. We do that by partnering with people who want to do amazing things with technology to serve their customers and constituents.
Great partnerships are powerful. As your strategic partner, we:
- Assemble an interdisciplinary team of experts who stay with you until launch.
- Ship early and often because we know great platforms that solve complicated problems emerge from iteration, learning, and refinement.
- Help you make pragmatic decisions that serve your needs rather than push you into any single platform, technology, or methodology.
- See you as a close and continuous collaborator, not just a client.
- Drive with design and produce interactive prototypes and working code, not just slide decks and static mockups.
- Are fair and transparent with straightforward billing. We don’t hit you with unnecessary change orders or pad our hours. We flat-price and charge you for the deliverable: working software.
Our clients come to us for different reasons. They want to reach new customers in underserved markets; or modernize a legacy system that’s fallen out of date and can’t evolve with the business; or enable new digital experiences that don’t yet exist; or accelerate velocity on their existing in-house team. No matter what they need to do, when our clients come to us, they know they are leveraging our expertise and experience shipping fast, modern software so that they can focus on their businesses’ core capabilities.
