Jacob CockroftThe Pigeonhole / CEO
Featurist have been our key partner taking the Pigeonhole from a design concept, through beta to the full product launch. User feedback on both the technical architecture and the user experience has been excellent - and I could not recommend them enough.

The app's minimalist design is superb – I haven't enjoyed reading on my phone until now.

iOS app for the local produce and organic food delivery business.
Featurist developed Farmdrop's iOS app in late 2015, the app recreates the full shopping and ordering experience that previously was only available in a browser. Farmdrop secured a large funding round soon after the app was launched.Farmdrop on the App Store

Peter JanesShopa / CEO
We have decided to work with Featurist on a number of large projects because they are the very best at what they do. They are able to provide us with a flexible working relationship and they are able to adapt themselves in anyway that ensures the best results occur.www.shopa.com
There is a very small group of people who can do what they do and they consistently deliver the highest quality of work. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending their services to anyone.
The dev team from Featurist took shopa.com from MVP in 2012 through successive rounds to series A funding in 2014.
Rob Bowley7digital / Director of Technology
On the technical side Featurist built precisely the right amount we needed and what they did was to an exceptional standard. On the operational side Featurist went above and beyond the call of a typical software team.www.7digital.com
They had an amazing ability to root out and pursue the issues that needed solving up and down the chain of the organisation to ensure we could deliver on time. We owe a huge amount to Featurist and I would not hesitate in recommending them. We have very high standards at 7digital and Featurist regularly excelled.

Ben JonesEuromoney / CTO
The team we hired from Featurist were dedicated professionals and expert developers. Their commitment to quality and mature approach to Behaviour Driven Development was instrumental in getting a critical project off to a good start and invaluable in maintaining quality over time. Their high standards were also a great help in our recruitment process.
Consultancy & Training
Featurist has provided coaching to various teams at the BBC to lead them through adoption of Behaviour Driven Development. Our coaches can help your team to take the first step towards BDD, or we can help more experienced teams tackle their most intractable testing problems.
We have also worked with the BBC to develop on an accessibility standards checker
We start by trying to really understand what you need: your business, your users, your goals.
Getting this right means we build just enough software to deliver the features your business demands.
Featurists love pair-programming and writing tests first, because it produces simple code that’s easy to change.
We drive out solutions by writing tests that clearly express the behaviour you have in mind.
This gives you confidence in the software you have and the courage to change tack fast.
All this means our software is ready to release at any time, at the push of a button.
