Here's the deal“Why do NodeJs developers need a helmet? To secure headers.” - If you laughed, you probably understand — in which case, proceed below :)

Who We Are

First, a bit about us. STRV is a software design and engineering team that delivers next-level products. Here since 2004, we’ve delivered solutions for partners ranging from startups to enterprises, including Barry’s, Microsoft, MedMen, Barnes & Noble, The Athletic, Autodesk and more.

We focus on mobile applications, websites, backend infrastructure, IoT, blockchain and data science/ML/AI. We have a footprint in specialized domains like dating, crypto and mobile gaming. On top of that, we’ve also got some successful internal spin-off projects (like Surge and Zoe), with more in the works — including a space western multiplayer NFT game. Feel free to ask us all about them.

The culture is very open and friendly, with everyone on the team self-driven in delivering the highest possible value for clients — because we all care about building partnerships and creating products that make us proud. But you’ve probably scrolled our web and read about all that already.

And as for meeting our US clients, there may be times you’ll get to visit them — or you may see them strolling through our Prague office since they’re often curious to see the STRV in action and to meet their team in person.

Learning & Other Opportunities
