Services

Our team creates end-to-end solutions: cloud infrastructure and databases, RESTful service layers, and modern front ends. Whether it's native, hybrid, or web apps, we have a broad and deep understanding of all of them.
We specialize in launching greenfield apps and new companies. We also have helped and continue to help many Fortune 500 companies modernize their infrastructure and bring legacy platforms into the modern age. We are hands on. We write code. We don't offshore.
Design is more science than art. We have developed apps for every medium and form factor and each comes with its own set of challenges. Hot Pixel Group approaches these challenges through rapid prototyping, A/B testing, and conducting usability studies. We take those findings and build user-centric solutions on them.
Hot Pixel Group buttresses its design and architectural guidance with real numbers and tech that help our partners glean data that keeps their UI and UX ahead of their competition, yielding happier customers and more revenue.
Every business has a unique set of challenges. Humans are imperfect and so are the processes we establish and the paths we forge. We spend time understanding where you are at and where you want to be. Then we devise ways of getting you there through product development, design, technology, and talent.
We help you get the right people on your bus then we help steer it toward the light. No solution is perfect because perfect is impossible. We don't have magic wands. What we do have is the ability to make each day better at every layer of your organization and attract talent to support your efforts.
