Building a web app doesn't have to be

Hello, I'm Thilo. I help non-technical entrepreneurs build and launch new web applications. Go from idea to live product in weeks with confidence and control.
Let's chat!

Starting a software development project can seem like a daunting challenge without a technical co-founder. Where do you even start? What can you expect for your budget? Are you going to meet your schedule? How do you avoid wasting time and money on an unresponsive developer or a product not fit for purpose?

What if you could get a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) built and launched in a few weeks instead of months? Watch it grow before your eyes and be confident that it stays on track? Avoid common mistakes and stay in control of your investment?

I can plan, build and launch your first product with you.

After two decades of building and launching products for web startups, I have learned how to balance the need for speed with quality of execution and transparency of processes. When we build your first product together, you will

  • Start with a solid roadmap and a well-documented plan for execution
  • Protect yourself from runaway cost through staged, fixed-price deliverables
  • Stay on top of progress through frequent reviews of well-defined milestones
  • Keep control of your business through full ownership of code and infrastructure
  • Go live with your MVP within weeks of project kickoff.

Two decades of industry experience at your service.

I've been developing software professionally for over twenty years, almost exclusively with startups of all stripes. My hands-on experience spans such diverse fields as banking, text messaging, politics, telephony, fundraising, e-commerce, and logistics.

For the past decade or so, I've been technical co-founder and CTO of multiple early stage startups in the US and Ireland.

Here's what some of my colleagues and clients kindly had to say:

I engaged Thilo for an audit of an early prototype that was not meeting expectations, and he ended up rebuilding it from scratch into a launch-ready product in record time.

Albert J. Angel Founder Chairman, CertiCall LLC

Thilo's ability to quickly take our early-stage company's technology from zero to hero set the stage for us to become a 65-person, profitable company. He's more than just a world-class developer: he helped us foresee what we'd need before we knew we'd need it.

John Horton President CEO, LegitScript LLC

I've partnered with Thilo in three startups. He's the guy I bring in as CTO or Chief Architect whenever I need a custom platform for transaction or e-commerce processing that includes global enterprise functionality. From backend to frontend, he can build it and make it robust and reliable.

Bill Peters Co-Founder CFO, Mobile 365 Inc.

Thilo has consistently delivered robust and reliable solutions, and we’ve been outage-free for nearly 6 years.
