Our Mission

We strive to develop a global collective mind through technology, innovation, leadership and partnerships.

Our Philosophy
1. The job dictates the tools

Developers play favorites. Most prefer one platform or language over another, and so they'll rewrite a client's site in their platform of choice. We do things differently: We assess the customer's needs, then we figure out the best tools to use.

2. Function comes before form

You've probably downloaded an app or two that seduced you with its glossy good looks — and then discovered it didn't actually do anything useful. Many development shops put design first, with development as an afterthought. We reverse that: We make it work. Then we make it look and sound good.

3. Homemade's better than store-bought

We don't outsource development work or repackage stale code as something new. We're versatile generalists who aren't tied to a single platform, and we use a hybrid of agile and structured methodology to get work done rapidly and right.

Core Values

V4 Development's core values are the foundation of the organization. They represent the way we behave towards each other, our colleagues and our clients, and drive our approach to business. We have lots of fun doing what we love—and these values are inherent in everything we do.

2. Excellence

We are committed to excellence in everything we do, from the technology we choose to the people who make up our team. With excellence as a guiding principle, we deliver quality results that ensure client satisfaction.

3. Integrity

We do what we say we'll do, and we operate with transparency and honesty. We treat each team member or client with absolute consideration and respect.

4. Collaboration

We work cohesively and see each person on our team as a critical contributor. We prize teamwork, and support each other in providing the best results for our clients. No one on our team is superior to another - we help each other out, in the spirit of personal growth. Together, with Optimism, We acknowledge and understand the reality of the challenges we face, and we always find a path forward. We respect one another enough to give and receive honest feedback.
