Talented builds digital products for big enterprise and fast growing startups.

Our teams will bring your vision from an idea to a fully deployed, adopted and supported product. Our prices are very competitive, and we aim for scale and long term relationships over margin. Most importantly, our people have worked together and come as a full stack end-to-end team to create intuitive, user centered and beautiful digital products.

At Talented we value speed, transparency, and security.

  • We believe in small teams of 3-7 people assembled in days to drive speed.
  • Full transparency is accomplished through daily work logs and 24-7 access to Product Managers.
  • Data security is of the utmost importance. We will not have access to your data and will provide the scripts necessary to fully integrate the product.
  • All IP created with Talented is the sole property of our clients.

We have worked with big tech, heavy industries, and top Venture Capital backed startups.

We leverage our AI, Machine Learning, and Optimization competencies for businesses looking to solve operational problems and leverage the scale, efficiency, insight, and flexibility of a fully digital business.
