About Covintus

Covintus leverages a global pool of over 500 developers and designers to provide software development solutions across the entire life cycle. They work exclusively with the top 1% of developers in the world with expertise in leading and trending technologies. Covintus provides the specialists you need, when you need them, guided by experienced leadership and project management.

All projects are clearly scoped and include a fixed price and delivery timeline. Their engagements typically begin with a clean-sheet process of “what if” scenarios, allowing clients to explore every option, identify cost-savings, and determine the most efficient approach. They get to work quickly - typically start a project within 7 to 14 days.

Covintus’ delivery process is centered around transparency. Clients work directly with a delivery manager from their full-time staff to maintain clear communications between you and the development team to ensure projects are progressing on time and on budget. With this approach they can identify scope changes and react quickly, consistently delivering Quality, Speed and Value.

We began working with a local accelerator and shortly discovered there is a huge gap in the need for high quality software development and the ability for startups to attain and sustain such caliber of tech talent.

We began providing free tech consulting and offering a huge discount on services to accelerator program participants, incubators, co-working spaces, non-profits, Certified B Corps and Benefit Corporations across the country.

This led us to the B Corp Certification, which allows us to build relationships with those very organizations which share our values and goals.

The Change We Seek®

Covintus' company mission is to provide businesses of all sizes with software solutions that propel their businesses forward while maintaining an environmentally conscious and socially aware work environment for their team members and partners.

It is difficult for small and midsize businesses to hire the IT staff needed for the successful growth they seek. This talent is usually very expensive and accessible only to fortune 500 companies. Because of Covintus' unique managed crowdsourcing business model and in house project management professionals they are able to deliver the highest quality with the world’s top talent on a project by project basis.

Covintus is focused on working with purpose driven companies and giving them the advantage of an on demand IT staff to responsibly build the power of their brands toward a more just, equitable, and sustainable world.
