We fuse strategy, design, and code into innovative products
Hub3 is an entrepreneurial Boston-based product team that boldly takes ideas from napkin to launch.
What We Do
Hub3 is a full-service creative studio
We do it all—the strategy, user experience, design, and coding that go into building software products that stand out.
At the same time, we build partnerships with our clients. We want to understand your industry, your business's needs, and your vision for staying on top.
We think you want your tech partner to have a strong point of view while also being transparent, empathetic, and fun to work with. That's us.
Web & Mobile AppsWe craft modern, memorable, user-centric apps that are maintainable and responsive across devices.
MVPs & PrototypesSometimes you need a lean prototype to test out an ambitious idea. We'll help prioritize the essential tasks.
Automations & InfrastructureWant to automate a business workflow or build an analytics pipeline? We regularly do both at Hub3!
Projects we're proud of
Spot Easy believes there's a better way for renters to find apartments, and they're betting they can beat companies like Zillow along the way.
After collaborating with their C-suite on product strategy, we designed and built their entire platform, including consumer-facing features, data pipelines, administrative tools, analytics dashboards, and more.
Post-launch we're focused on features that boost engagement and retention, and we're excited to build the Spot Easy mobile app soon.
ReactRuby on RailsNext.jsView Project
With inspiration from Instagram and Snapchat, Hitpic is a location-based photo sharing platform.
As a social media app, we built lots of features users would expect: image filters, commenting, notifications, hashtags, and even emoji ratings. 😉
We also built an admin dashboard to help with tracking user behavior, monitoring content, and responding to support requests.

New Wave Real Estate
We completely rebuilt New Wave's website and transformed the process of finding an apartment into a guided, e-commerce-like experience.
To that end, we crafted a new search experience for their 50,000+ rentals, and a "checkout" flow that allows new clients to quickly schedule showings and share their search preferences.
We also built internal tools to streamline tedious agent workflows, and automate the importing and sanitization of rental data.

On-time and within budget
Leveraging years of product-building experience, we manage software projects efficiently and transparently. Below is our typical process for a web app.
Our first goal is always to understand your vision.
We'll brainstorm possible solutions with you and write a Functional Specification that documents your vision in detail.
After, we'll ruthlessly prioritize tasks so that we work on the highest-value features first.
Before diving into designs, we'll first think about the user's experience (UX) and where content belongs (information hierarchy).
We'll then wireframe ideas and simultaneously learn more about your vision for the product's look and feel.
After, we'll iterate on the actual designs with confidence and keep you involved at every step.
When you're happy with the designs, we'll begin writing code using agile sprint planning, test-driven development, and code reviews.
During development, our goal is to keep you intimately involved. We'll chunk development tasks so that you're able to weigh in on features early and often.
Support & Maintenance
Upon launch, a product enters the second stage of its lifecycle where real users interact with it.
You'll want to keep an eye on performance, track user behavior, and possibly continue feature development given user feedback. As your tech partner, we'll be here to help.

Companies we've worked for
Core values that we share
Unreasonably FearlessWe're not afraid of hard problems—they're learning opportunities in disguise.
Embrace ExperimentationYou can't have all the answers. Sometimes you need to stop talking and test out ideas.
Work Should Be FunQuality products follow when passionate people work together and enjoy the process.
Push & Pull Leads to ExcellenceThe best ideas come from people with strong opinions aligning on a shared vision.
Take Smart RisksYou can't win big by playing it safe all the time. Play it smart, and if you're given dice, roll them.
Never Stop LearningWe're never content with the status quo. Life's more fun when you're learning and growing.
