We're Katana—a web development team with a reputation for empowering startups and small organisations. Our clients hire us to design and build websites and mobile apps that their customers love to use.
We work closely with our clients through each stage of the development process; from discussing and planning the initial concept; sketching and wire-framing designs; to building, launching, and maintaining their project as it matures.
Whether you need a dynamic website, a mobile app, or to be more effective in your online marketing — we’re the team to help you create something great.
Collectively, we’ve helped launch over 30 startups and small organisations, in 7 countries across 4 continents. From online dating, to learning tools for musicians; for web, smartphone and tablets.
We also like to build our own products and contribute quality code to open-source.
They quickly understood what we wanted to achieve and planned all the required steps and processes to get there. Every detail was meticulously structured, thought out and documented. This was then conveyed to us in layman’s terms we could understand and quantify, making the whole process (slightly) less daunting.
It is very refreshing to work with a company that is so organized and so responsive of its customers’ needs. They went over and beyond all our expectations, a real pleasure to work with. Thanks!! We are always very impressed with their work, always willing to address any question, problem or enquiry timely and very effectively.
The guys at Katana have completely redefined what I think of when I hear 'software developer'. They always take the time to discuss our business aims first, and then suggest technology solutions that will help us meet those aims. They've been an essential component in our fast-moving startup machine
Katana Code helped us turn our crazy ideas into reality. They offered a very hands on and personal service from start to finish, and continue to do so long after our site was launched. They show great pride in their work and I love that - A real pleasure to work with!
I’ve worked with a number of dev shops, and KatanaCode has topped them all. One thing they do uniquely well is thinking about your product holistically: you give them a spec, and not only will they execute on it, but they’ll also act as a thought partners, and advise when aspects of your spec can be improved.
We were happy with KatanaCode from start to end. They acted as a fantastic sparring partner both on the technical parts of the development process, but also challenged us on many of the business areas, adding their "tech" perspective on our processes, resulting in our product being more long term scalable than originally intended.
The design, responsiveness, and internationalisation are great, and just in the nick of time for Qualia Analytics going public to Brazilian zoos! Thanks so much for the back up guys, you’ve been awesome to work with.
