Ruby on Rails Development

Better Software Faster with Ruby on Rails

Sphere Consulting, Inc. has a large Ruby on Rails development team that is stationed at multiple locations including Chicago, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and NYC. The team provides services to clients all over the U.S. and Europe.

Sphere's RoR Team has developed and launched complex, scalable and high load applications for many successful companies including for the fastest growing company of the year and for a $500M online lending business.

Ruby on Rails is an open source web application framework for Ruby that is intended to be used with an Agile development methodology for rapid development. It includes tools that make common development tasks easier "out of the box". Rails has quality built in, with out-of-the-box support for unit tests, functional tests, and integration tests. Testing no longer needs to be expensive.

We build intelligent systems to help you improve efficiencies and drive revenue.

With a proven track record in creating bespoke web applications, commercial websites and complex software cloud based systems, Sphere team is ideally positioned to ensure we can deliver exactly what you want on time and on budget.

We offer creative business and technology solutions that offer improved efficiencies, and of course always bearing in mind the importance of proving everything we do yields a return.

Our recent work includes building social networks, property, vacancy and event management systems, corporate intranets, start-up .com businesses, and of course eCommerse systems.

At Sphere, we view ourselves as the development agency that can take the headache away from specifying a technical project. Our clients provide the objectives, and we do the thinking.

We believe that successful projects come from more than just technical and creative expertise. We focus on creating applications that resolve real business issues and offer a tangible benefit from day one.

You can improve and extend your feature set easily, without having to worry about bug creep upon every change. Rails makes strong use of the model-view-controller design pattern, which aims to isolate the business logic from the user interface, letting developers and designers work together efficiently. Rails also supports an array of plug-ins, modules, and engines that make it straightforward to extend or modify core functionality. Rails provides easy creation of RESTful web services and it is intended to emphasize Convention over Configuration (CoC), and the rapid development principle of Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY).

What People Say About Us

  • I've been routinely impressed by Sphere Consulting's professionalism, technical skill, ability to execute complicated projects. I've worked directly with Leon Ginsburg as well as his project managers and Ruby on Rails developers, and I continue to engage their company whenever I need technology services.

  • I would like to recommend Sphere Consulting as an outsourcing software development partner. Enova Financial has worked with Sphere Consulting since 2005, having selected the company primarily because of its software development capabilities and experience with Ruby on Rails. We started with a small dedicated team and over time have scaled our engagement to several large teams. The members of our dedicated teams at Sphere Consulting work closely with our organization to build a sound understanding of our business. The quality of their service is consistently high and Agile development process is well established. We are currently on our 4th year together and looking forward to future endeavors with Sphere Consulting.

  • We moved our project to Sphere Consulting from another consulting company which was not performing. They re-engineered our application in Ruby on Rails and continue to provide excellent systems analysis, coding, testing and deployment. We just finished our first release and as a very happy client, we are engaging Sphere for the 2nd release. We receive great service from our project manager, and strong support from Sphere executive management team.
