Everyone loves a little friendly competition, and in the world of web app development, there is no shortage of talent throwing their hats in the ring. So when Lauren Schneidewind and Daniel Rice decided to set up their own web app dev shop, LD Studios, they knew it was game on.
What started as a pet project for Schneidewind and Rice in 2014, has grown to a devoted staff of 5, with an influx of projects to keep the team moving full steam ahead. We recently had the pleasure of catching up with Schneidewind to get the scoop on the fantastic five behind the screens at LD Studios.
“Last year was a great year for us,” stated Lauren. “We had 9 projects, with one of those being a large project taking two full-time developers to work on, which really gave us the stability we need. Our customers changed from who we thought we would support, but the shift to primarily helping finance companies has given us great legs to stand on.”
LD Studios leap into the world of finance has worked well in their favor – with customers ranging as far as Trinidad and Tobago. And while they take on projects from just about anywhere, they like to keep their talent pool right here in Atlanta.
“Our team brings a unique group of talents. Our most recent hire Brian understands the ins and outs of the finance world which really gives us that extra edge. With everything moving to online payments and the cloud, the industry is exploding in that direction and there is a huge demand for what we can bring to the table.”
