Do you wish you had a reliable software team
who can turn your innovative ideas into reality?
We like to make things better. Whether it is making a great product from scratch, improving an existing product or making a team more productive, those are the things we love about our work.
We can work as a complete technical team for you or we can work as additional skilled people on your existing team, infecting them with good practices.
Helping transform existing teams into ones that reliably produce working and tested software, many Thought-Saucers have been using and teaching agile techniques for over 7 years.
Test Driven Development
Behaviour Driven Development
If you have an idea but don't have the experience of launching a startup product, we can help you with our history of successful launches.
Minimal Viable Product Creation
Application development is the heart of Thought-Sauce. We can help augment your existing team, work as your complete technical team or rescue a failing project.
Ruby on Rails
"Thought-Sauce rocks! We needed a lead Ruby on Rails engineer to get our project off the ground, and Thought-Sauce were the only company able to provide the talent we required. Thought-sauce worked with us from conception, design, through to product launch for two major projects, and we simply could not have done it without them. Many thanks the Thought-sauce team" - David Beatty, Founder & Managing Director - Refer.me Ltd.
"Steve and the Thought-Sauce team are a pleasure to work with. Steve was instrumental during the planning stages and helped bring focus and collaboration to the project and all team members. Highly recommended!" Catherine Chen, Mamasan
The Thought-Sauce team has always been a mix of cultures and experiences and this diversity is one of the great assets of the team.
We love to get involved in the community and help organise the HK programmers' meetup called Codeaholics.
Steve is co-founder, project manager and sometimes software craftsman at Thought-Sauce.
He has worked in the industry for 18 years, collaborating on a distinguished number of successful software projects from a nuclear power station control system to financial systems. Steve is a passionate advocate of Agile development and has helped run the Agile HK community group.
Living on the edge, always trying to deliver user-driven applications rather than feature-bloated applications.
He has been actively using Ruby/Rails in various projects since 2007, focusing on developing large web applications. He is also proud of being adept at TDD/BDD which lets him spend more time creating and trying out new things rather than fixing bugs. When he's not working you can probably find him cooking or backpacking in some southeast Asian country.
Jack has devoted himself to Ruby development since he graduated. He is keen to open-source self-tested projects and give talks at conferences and Codeaholics. Having worked in different institutions (startups, 4A agency, travel company and web consultancy), he is happy to see technology bring productivity, efficiency and change the world.
He is fond of Agile development, but also tries his best to be agile physically in terms of running, swimming and as a softball catcher!
Matthew Rudy Jacobs
Matthew is an expert in Ruby on Rails development. He has spoken at conferences, and user groups around the world. He is a contributor to the Ruby on Rails project, and the author of many open-source projects. He has worked extensively in the SMS business, and more recently has consulted on Android development.
He is a keen traveller and photographer with a particular interest in Asia.
Eddie is a dedicated security wiz. Prior to joining Thought-Sauce Eddie was hired by a well-known large HK institute to try and crack their security system - of course this was achieved and by circumventing the security, money was transferred to another account. Unfortunately he didn't get to keep any of it, but we're real glad that Eddie is now making sure our systems are bullet-proof.
"Thought-Sauce has helped the development team transition to Agile with ease. The result is evident from how the team now works and perfoms and how we are perceived by our clients" Rommel Barleta, Senior Developer, Wallem
Thought-Sauce is based in Hong Kong and we love the city. Most of our projects are based here and that gives us the benefit of face-to-face communications, but we have also worked on projects in UK, USA and the Philippines. We can work remotely or temporarily locate to your offices if needed.
Normally the lead-time for a project will be in the region of 6-8 weeks, as we are usually already working on a project or two, but if it is urgent try us anyway, you may be lucky.
