We are not a short term solution to building your product, we are your core engineering team. With years of experience under our belts and strong startup roots, Proximity fills a very specific gap between building for scale and staying nimble.
If you're a growth stage company with a successful MVP and no idea how to scale it, we are the team you need. If you're an enterprise company bogged down by slow processes and bloated technology, we're your guys!

These differences are powerful — they help us remember that there is no single right way of thinking and help us stay curious and humble.
