App Masters' was founded with the purpose of promoting other companies' growth by using software and technology. From the beginning, we decided to work only on a few projects simultaneously so we could give maximum focus to each one and deliver the best solution to our clients. The best part of any project is to see the final result being used by many users around the world and making people's lives easier in the process.

It still seems unreal that three years ago I started App Masters. It was an initial idea that kept growing and growing in my mind. During these three years, like almost any company in Brazil, we have gone through ups and downs, but here we are, firm, strong and growing! I learned that what matters most in business is people. The ones that work with us, and the one for which we work for.

Our Team

  • Small-sized Team

    Most big outsourcing companies lack the agility to experiment and flexibility to adapt to a project's needs. In contrast, having a compact team of developers who work closely together with each other is known to increase efficiency overall. Knowing who is the best fit for each job, as well as what to expect in terms of pace from each one makes up for a more productive task allocation. Implementing new technologies and workflows, as well as rapidly adjusting to our clients' needs are far easier with a small team. Communication flows more fluid and strong bonds are created within the team.

  • Highly Experienced

    We are a team of young but experienced developers who have worked in both private and governmental sectors creating softwares that have been used by thousands of people. We are accustomed to dealing with all sorts of restrictions and requests from our customers, as well as meeting all of their expectations. The extensive list of apps our developers have been involved in over the course of their professional careers demonstrates skills in working with web and mobile apps. The technology we use when developing mobile apps allows us to develop, at the same time, versions for iOS and Android. That way time and resources are optimized during development.

  • Agile and Adaptable

    We use only the latest technologies to deliver high-quality applications that fit our clients' needs. We have the highest standards for website responsiveness, speed, accessibility, SEO and user experience, so you can rest assured that your project will be flawless from start to finish. Don't worry about support and maintenance, we will ensure continuous improvement of our softwares at your request. Our problem-solving skills allow us to identify issues and solve them earlier in the project while still maintaining expectations in line.

Our Essence

At our core, App Masters operates on four values.
Commitment, Competency, Creativity and Communication.
We call it our 4C's.

Commitment

We always allocate a fully dedicated development team that will provide high-quality products and fast deliveries.

Competency

Hiring top tech professionals and providing a great environment where they can continue learning new technologies and practices.

Creativity

Agility and creativity are well-known traits of Brazilian professionals worldwide (AKA jogo de cintura). These are key soft skills that allow us to solve problems quickly and reach great results.

Communication

Discussing and sharing ideas are skills that we always stimulate among our employees. Our team is fully bilingual in both English and Portuguese which allows fluid communication with clients and stakeholders.

A Day At Our Office

Based on four important pillars, our team members share what a typical day at our offices looks like.

Client/Team Communication

I start my day by checking the clients' messages and the current state of our projects to see which tasks need to be prioritized. I like to check in with our devs to see if good practices are being followed and if everyone has all the information they need to complete their tasks.

Tiago > Project Manager

Tasks Allocation

In a typical day, we have a meeting very early in the morning where tasks are assigned and we discuss each project's progress. What I like the most is the sense that even though I'm a little less experienced than my colleagues I feel free to offer my opinions on issues and discuss ways to solve problems. It’s a great way to learn with our peers and grow as a professional.

Allan > Junior Developer

Collaborative Solution Finding

We talk a lot about the best practices for implementing features between the innumerable ways of doing things and everyone is always very open to change. This gives us a sense of importance within the team and that our voices are heard.

Matheus > Developer

Bonding

Aside from programming, my regular work routine involves jokes and laughter, playing around with VR, crazy russian music and lots and lots of coffee. What I enjoy the most is the relaxed environment around the office. It keeps everyone in a good headspace even with the sometimes intense work demands we have.

Bruno > Developer

Local Community of Developers

App Masters is the go-to software development company for local developers to be. Therefore, we have an open-door policy for the public. We love to stir the local community of developers by organizing events, hackathons and workshops. This increased our notoriety amongst locals but mostly it enabled us to connect with different people and help build a strong community of developers. This is our favorite way of sharing knowledge, recruiting new talents and obviously, having lots of fun.

App Masters Academy

For us, being developers go beyond any regular job, it’s a passion. Something that we love to share through teaching. We believe that by sharing our knowledge and experience we can change the lives of individuals for the better. We teach the technologies we love and believe in. Training can take place in our office or online, whether in English or in Portuguese.

I'm very satisfied with App Masters' work. Since version one, we've deployed our platform at over a dozen events and made countless improvements. As we continue to improve the overall UI experience, we will continue to partner with the App Masters team to get it done. We value our partnership with App Masters and believe that would be an asset to anyone looking to develop a web-based product.

- CEO at Breakout Technologies

App Masters' team worked diligently to deliver a working product on-time and relatively within budget. They were extremely accessible and made the overall technical and planning process easy to navigate. As someone with very little development expertise, I found their communication style to be clear and concise. This gave me confidence in their understanding of the product we wanted to develop and their abilities to see the project through to its entirety.

I always say to anyone I meet with an idea for a website, a platform, or an app, the hardest part about doing that is finding a development team. It's one of those things that whenever you find a really good professional partner, they almost become part of your professionalism and credibility. I love telling people about App Masters, it's one of the safest bets anyone can make about a software development company.

- Technical Director at Perimeter

Working with App Masters has been an absolute pleasure. Outsourcing, especially to a company in a different country, is always a difficult decision, but choosing App Masters was the best move we could have made. The entire team is very knowledgeable and extremely dedicated. From day one we have felt like we were working with partners and not simply hiring external consultants.

- CEO at Getting to Global

On every single project, they have made sure to perfectly understand the stakes as well as the objectives. They never limit themselves to simply following assigned tasks and they keep making insightful suggestions to improve everyone's work and the projects themselves. There are no projects, big or small, on which I wouldn't completely trust App Masters.

From the start, the attention given to the project by App Masters’ team made us feel safe about bringing our idea to life. We’ve had an excellent experience and we can say without a doubt that technical competence, unparallel support, and attention to detail are the company's greatest differentials.
