Who we are
ShakaCode is a global software consultancy specializing in Ruby on Rails, React, Rust, and ReScript. Founded in 2011 by Justin Gordon, creator of the open-source react_on_rails gem, ShakaCode's culture is quality code. Companies hire ShakaCode because of our in-depth technical knowledge, demonstrated by our projects and open-source software. We're not one of those agencies that rush a ton of features for a low fixed price! Our Recent Work page showcases ShakaCode projects. We also help many companies using our flagship React on Rails open source, often with performance improvements and frontend architectural expertise.

Besides consulting, our team is working on building HiChee.com, with demonstrated love (over 250K likes) from travelers on our TikTok @hi.chee channel.

If you're not sure if you want to apply, have any questions, or we're slow to get back to you, feel free to reach out to the founder Justin Gordon via email or on our Slack Channel.
