We’re a product development firm with software consultants in Chicago

For 16 years, we've built our software development consultancy around three small words and one big idea: tech done right. To us, it means more than clean code and sound design. It means doing right by our partners, by our peers and by our community.

“Table XI's research allowed us to reduce development time and ultimately create a better product for our customers.”

When you partner with us, we treat your success like our own. That's why we make these four promises ...

We'll act as one team

Great products depend on great collaboration, and great collaboration depends on trust. We'll earn yours by welcoming you into every step.

We'll ask hard questions

Tech's only right when it's right for your business. Our discovery process digs in to debunk the ideas that don't add value and find opportunities for real results.

We'll mind the money

We budget down to the individual risk, so the range in your proposal reflects what you’ll actually pay. No surprises — just the most value for dollar.  

You'll get control

We want you to own your success — even though we're not going anywhere. Prepping your team to confidently run with the product is part of our job.

Writing the book on Rails — a few, actually

We're consistently impressed with the way our own Noel Rappin solves problems. His ideas on testing and payments are pushing the industry forward, and fortunately he's generous with his knowledge, publishing multiple books, hosting workshops and speaking wherever Rails conferences take him.

Teaching everyone how to jumpstart career development

Our team is the most important thing — the more fulfilled they are, the better all of our products are. So we invest heavily in career development, sending our people to conferences all over the world and supporting them as they donate time to the causes they care about most. To keep track of it all, we adopted a simple process, one we've turned into a game anyone can use.

Solving the big questions in tech by bringing leaders together

Our podcast gives us an opportunity to kickstart conversations on processes, languages and tools with leaders across all fields. But it also gives us a chance to go deeper, discussing diversity, government and all the ways tech bleeds into the real world and makes Tech Done Right so important.

Creating spaces for people to grow

We're constantly pushing businesses to adopt better practices. At least twice a year, we gather people in our industry to trade ideas at Ops Conf and WalkShop. And almost monthly, we bring people from all backgrounds to our Chicago office for design thinking and tech-driven events.
