When a client brings us in to build their next big app, one of the first questions we ask them is What will define success for you? That’s because we’re laser-focused on that one core goal. The details may change along the way. That’s OK. We’re not building toward details.

How we started

Fynydd was founded in 2010 by engineers with decades of user interface design and software development experience. Owning separate companies, they decided to come together to form a new, single entity where they could combine their expertise to make something even better.

Today, Fynydd has a passionate, talented team of project managers, designers, developers, and strategists, working on a wide range of projects for all kinds of clients. Basically, we bring ideas to life on a daily basis.

Our founders

And he's worked for an eclectic range of clients, ranging from Food Network Iron Chef Bobby Flay, Comcast SportsNet, and Intel Corporation, to large enterprise clients in retail, pharmaceutical, and finance, as well as ad agencies, restaurants, non-profits, tech firms, and more.

Chris is committed to ensuring the efficiency and success of our customers through technology.

The word “fynydd” is Welsh for mountain.

* The Welsh pronounce it [‘vänith], but here we say [‘finid]

Our core values

Our roles may vary from operations to design to software engineering. But we all believe in a people-first culture based on embracing change, open and honest communication, and a passion for what we do. We feel so strongly about our culture that we've codified it into these ten Fynydd core values.

  1. Deliver WOW through products and services. Everything we do is a reflection of Fynydd and our values.

Relationships are important

When you really get to know your client’s business and goals you’re able to anticipate, understand, and execute with surprising efficiency.

Fynydd has experience building great apps for a wide range of industries, and we bring that knowledge to every project. But we’re always learning. That’s why we’re in it for the long haul.
