Your basic product works, you've raised some cash, and you're ready to scale.

But your product won't scale.

It can't handle thousands of new users.

You're restricted by your no code platform — the UX is clunky and doesn't support your user journey.

Automation on Airtable eats your team's time.

Data on spreadsheets isn't secure.

You need to build a serious product.

We specialise in transforming prototypes & basic products into scalable reliable tech products that deliver your vision.

A step-by-step transition to a custom product capable of scaling fast — delivered fast.

Who we are

  • Founded in 2004, our mission is to help you
    do good @ scale.

  • Previously, we built digital products for large organisations like BBC Children in Need, NBC Universal, and World Wildlife Fund.

  • Now we focus on impact-led startups - like VaccinationTrack and Flutterlab - who have achieved 100s of % growth while working with us.

  • Our unique method - The Tech Bootcamp™ - puts improvement before technology and measures it. It was included as a best practice in the 2019 Parliamentary Review.

  • Our fully UK-based team has built products for ourselves and others. And invested in tech startups. We know what life is like as a founder.

“We wouldn’t have had another record-breaking year without you. Fact”

Head of Digital
BBC Children in Need

“With previous developers if we don’t get the explanation right, they don’t get it right. So they build the wrong thing… The Tech Dept are a step change compared to other tech partners”

Clare Baldwin, VaccinationTrack

Tech people bullshit about the topic endlessly, what you need is the facts. What’s good about The Tech Dept is they said it’s doable, deliverable and commercial”

Nick Munro, co-founder of Flutterlab

“As a middle-aged woman, who is a technophobe, I come across many tech guys who find it a hurdle to deal with me. They roll their eyes at me… but The Tech Dept are just a bunch of normal people”

Helen O’Donnell, CEO of Children’s University

Plug us in when you need us (and unplug us when you don't)

Think of us as a tech product development & strategic sparring partner in one.

Strategists, project managers, CTO, UX, full-stack development.

  • You plug in The Tech Dept to build your product.

  • We continually improve your product in line with your vision.

  • Then, at the right time, we help you hire and handover to an internal team so you can build more value internally.

Turn your basic product into a serious product.

If you are:

- A startup founder
- With a creaking tech product
- Raising a seed round to build a serious product
- Have a tight deadline
- And don't want to build an in-house team (yet)

We can build you a reliable scalable tech product that delivers your vision.
