Testimonials

JAKT had a working version of our app up and running in about the amount of time I've seen most other organizations draft a statement of work.

— Michael Oneppo, CTO of Library for All

My startup partnered with the JAKT team to build a graphics-heavy analytics platform. Their responsiveness and work ethic was second to none. They were constantly engaged and updated my team while coming up with some creative suggestions on design, workflow and product specifications. They were quick studies in picking up our language of choice for the web platform and were versatile enough to exceed all our initially established deadlines and targets.

If you’re looking for technology partners who will plug right alongside your team and help you get out of some tough deadlines, then I strongly recommend working with JAKT.

— Isaac Asiamah, Founder of Darwynn

JAKT kicks ass. Incredibly sharp and talented, they’re both so easy to communicate with, which is crucial to having your vision manifested onto the interwebs. I truly enjoy working with them. They’re the best developers I’ve worked with: diligent, deadline-oriented, always on the same page — if I could hire them full-time I would.

— Edlin Choi, Founder of EatTribal

The team at JAKT definitely over-delivered! Knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, & highly skilled, I couldn’t have asked for a better development solution.

— Dino Decespedes, Founder of Guidebits

The JAKT team worked with our tight time frame, and provided an excellent product on a limited start-up budget. I am very happy with the results, and continue to use JAKT for our ongoing web site needs.

— Alan Silbert, Founder of BitPremier
