We help our clients skate to where the puck will be.

Whether it's validating new business lines, improving internal efficiency with robust tools and integrations, or exploiting emerging channels for distribution, DI's cross-functional teams give clients a nimble, robust innovation apparatus to take their businesses into the future.

"We found a firm who said 'we're going to work with you and partner, and we're all in this together.' We haven't seen anyone operate this way."

The traditional process is broken.

Most digital firms will show you this slide when they start talking process:

This slide is dangerous. It assumes a single project with a big launch. It sells the dream that once live, your customers will love you and growth will be rapid and unimpeded. This is almost never how it works out.

DI uses a Lean Startup process, breaking your idea into a series of hypotheses to be validated. We think about the business, not just the code. We leverage shorter loops, validated learning, and increased resources only as the business proves it's worth it. Our process limits waste, reduces risk and increases your odds of success.

Each week, digital intent sends clients and friends curated articles and presentations that have helped us get better. To join the list, enter your email address below.

We get our hands dirty.

"If there was one phrase I'd use to describe Digital Intent, it would be a true partner."

Let's get one thing out of the way - this new project is going to be a slog.

Along with the victories, there will be plenty of rejection from current and prospective customers. It's going to take hard work and sweat. It's going to take trying a bunch of things that don't work en route to finding something that does. It's not for the faint of heart.

This long, hard road is why most innovation projects fail. It's why most dev firms launch and leave, and why most consultants hand you a pretty strategy deck and head for the exits.

When Digital Intent starts working with a client, we're in it for the long haul.

If you'll let us, we'll go on the journey with you as your trusted advisor and de facto cofounders. We'll go on the customer interviews. Design the prototypes. Build the web and mobile apps. Travel to sales meetings. Execute on marketing strategies. Iterate on the product to make it better.

We'll celebrate with you on the wins. Be a sounding board and confidant in the losses. We'll do everything we can to make your project successful.

Competence. Humility. Discipline. Outcomes.

We look for people who strive to get better every day. People who commit to doing things the right way every time. People who have awesome skills but a beginner's mind, eager to learn. People who use tangible results as their definition of a job well done. If that sounds like you, we're always hiring. See available positions here.

"We really build partnerships with our clients. They text throughout the day with questions, we call each other, we feel like we're one team and I love that."

Whether you want to prove that innovation can happen inside your large organization, or you want to give your startup its best chance for success, we'd be honored to sit down with you and discuss how to make it happen.

Let's build something great together.
