Here's what we find ourselves doing on a regular basis:

Wordpress development – everything from simple maintenance and upgrades to heavily customized site builds.

Custom application development – we are PHP/MySQL specialists. We love the opportunity to build custom systems from scratch, but we’re also expert at configuring off-the-shelf frameworks and solutions.

Front-end development – modern, fully responsive, mobile-adaptive HTML, CSS and Javascript/JQuery.

Researching, identifying and implementing an ever-expanding universe of third-party services including e-commerce, geolocation, address lookup/verification, real estate leasing and availability tools and more.

Experience Matters

Metric Media was founded in Seattle in 2002. Each member of the core development team has been in the software development business for at least 10 years. We’ve all had experience running our own businesses prior to Metric Media, so in addition to our development skills, we’re able to bring a deeper understanding of the business environment and our clients’ needs to the work we do.

We are a small company but we have an extensive network of contractors and consultants we can utilize to expand our effective skill set well beyond what it might be otherwise. From Salesforce to SEO, ASP.NET, server configuration and more, if our core team doesn't already know it, you can bet someone in our extended family does.

Our flexible team allows us to offer our clients a comprehenisve approach to helping solve their web challenges. In addition to the programming world, we’re equally at home working through design challenges, bringing designers up to speed on responsive design, helping our clients better understand and talk to their users, and helping them make choices that most benefit their business.

Our experience with companies of all sizes – from Fortune 500 companies, to national and local nonprofits, to startups, family businesses and one-person endeavors – means we’re comfortable diving into just about any project.

 

We believe in putting users first whenever possible. However clever we think an idea might be, if it doesn’t help the user find what they are seeking – or worse, makes it difficult for them to do so – then there is probably a better approach to be found.

It isn’t enough to just send a message, the message must be received for communication to truly succeed. This requires empathy with our users – the ability to step outside ourselves and experience a site through fresh eyes, just as a busy, distracted, modern web user might.
