We help organizations innovate by listening to their problems and the needs of their users.
From there, we work backwards to the technology to find the right tools for the job.
We will vet your ideas, assess technical feasibility and lay out a roadmap for your Minimum Viable Product ™.
The faster you determine product-market fit, the more time and money you'll save in getting your business off the ground.
We use amazing open-source tools like Ruby on Rails and Postgres to build robust web applications on time and on budget.
Working product is delivered early and often so you can provide feedback throughout the software development lifecycle.
What differentiates industry-leading products today is not the underlying technology, but delightful and engaging user experiences.
With our breadth of experience, eye for design and partnerships with the best UI and UX professionals in the biz, you're in great hands.
Founder + Engineer
Tony lives in Northern Virginia and has been developing web and desktop applications since 1998. He has worked with companies of various sizes across the government and commercial sectors. He previously served as the VP of Product and Engineering at ID.me for over 6 years.
Tony discovered the Ruby programming language during a graduate course at George Washington University and quickly fell in love. Finding out how to get paid writing Ruby code became #lifegoals.
While working for government contractors in the Washington D.C. area, Tony consulted with startups on the side. 33needs, a crowdfunding site for socially concious entrepreneurs, was developed from concept to launch.
Frustrated with the pace of government work, Tony set out to join a startup. He was the founding engineer at TroopSwap, a daily deals site for the military. TroopSwap eventually became ID.me, an online identity verfication service with millions of users.
Having learned many lessons from scaling and running the product and engineering team at ID.me, Tony decided to set out on his own to help other small companies achieve their ambitious business goals. 29FX was born (again).
