The House Store

Project Overview

RW Code Lab has most recently been working on a new, internal product used by the IT department of a large hardware store. We are working with a small, internal team to help change the mindset of how store support employees think about the products they build.

We started the project by having many conversations with different members of the staff to get a true understanding of what is going on. From there, we've done design and development work, mostly on a Visio-like diagramming editor with drag and drop functionality and auto-routed connections.

Unboundary

Project Overview

Unboundary's new website had been sitting on a shelf for over a year as it needed some technical TLC before it could be launched. We worked with their marketing and design staff to recommend design changes and complete the technical build and launch of the existing site. Some fancy touches include parallax effects and progressive loading of images and video.

The next project with our friends at Unboundary will be to guide them through the design and build of a fully cohesive and responsive site that maintains the same look and feel no matter what device it's being viewed on.

“Wow, Tom, this is fantastic. Thank you so much. I walk away from every interaction with you impressed.” - Executive Director at Unboundary

Rocket Fuel

Project Overview

Rocket Fuel uses the power of artificial intelligence to make digital advertising better. They partnered with RW Code Lab to design and build world-class data analytics software. We led the UI/UX design of new and existing features and our development team built new features and refactored others to get them ready for a production environment.

The RW Code Lab team more than doubled in size over the course of the contract in order to support Rocket Fuel as they went from ~100 employees to a $1b IPO in just over 2 years. The project concluded when we successfully transitioned all aspects to Rocket Fuel's growing internal team.

"Rocket Whale completed several projects for Rocket Fuel over the course of 2+ years, extremely well and on time. They provided beautiful and functional designs for a new version of our product, enabling us to offer our user interface to external customers for the first time. Their project management, quality of talent, and work in both engineering and design disciplines was top notch. They worked closely with our own product managers, designers and web developers, and served as a natural extension of our team, but they were also extremely effective when working independently on a standalone project. I would not hesitate to use them again for another web development consulting project in the future." - Mark Torrance, CTO at Rocket Fuel

HowTracker i

Project Overview

HowTracker is a checklist-based how-to platform centered on the idea that the ability to apply knowledge found is just as important as finding it. It's a place to share how to do things with others and a tool to help you actually do those things.

HowTracker was created from our need to create how-to guides in a simple way - so that they would actually be used. It helps us consistently perform repeated tasks and processes in a trackable way. It's also handy for never forgetting to what to pack for a ski trip!

You can use it for your business too - for free!

Faceti.me

Project Overview

Sometimes you have an idea and you just want to put something out there to see if it sticks. This is known as a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). Well, there's no reason an MVP shouldn't look good! We helped our client implement his idea - an email forwarding service for @faceti.me email addresses - in less than 2 weeks from start to finish.

Unfortunately, his idea didn't hit like he hoped and the service has been turned off. In the meantime, why not attend Startup Riot?
