Join our team.

We are a bunch of geeks who love to solve tough problems that others would cringe to go anywhere near. Technology is just a tool for us. What brings us closer is our deep belief in collaboration, quality and continuous learning. We try to keep things simple and transparent. We care less about titles, team hierarchy and even where someone works out of. We hold a high technical bar for our new hires but equally care about the culture and compatibility.

About Us

Kickdrum combines senior-level corporate strategy with innovative design-driven engineering to create software that transforms businesses. Here are a few business problems we have solved recently:

  1. A mid-tier digital marketing company was struggling with an aging product line that was behind the competition. Following a UX design-driven approach, we built a cloud-based personalization engine that harnessed the power of data to provide descriptive and prescriptive insights for their customers. Using real time data analytics, data science and machine learning algorithms, the company now has state of the art campaign management capabilities.

  2. A healthcare company had to scale to handle 5X cases (roughly 6M patient cases) within a few months. We redesigned their legacy single server architecture to a cloud-based multi-tenant serverless architecture while also modernizing the UI/UX for several applications. This was that typical use case and an opportunity to revamp the huge monolith system to a microservices based architecture.

  3. A healthcare staffing company had to rapidly scale up their operations to drive growth and capture new markets.  We built a serverless engine using AWS lambda that helped them automatically fill staffing requirements in seconds versus several hours.

  4. Private Equity firms need to perform due diligence on target acquisitions. This includes a full review of the technology products, people and processes. We developed a proprietary model to assist with the technical and product assessments and have conducted over 20+ projects in the last year.
