Why We Chose This Purpose
feature was founded on the belief that today's most relevant and valuable companies are building proprietary software products to transform business performance.
Unfortunately, software is shrouded in confusion, viewed as a cost center, and punished with inadequate funding. We think that is a solid plan for failure.
Leading brands are competing in the new Industrial Revolution – The Software Economy – and know they will live or die by their digital adoption. Companies mature in software-enabled digital transformation are outperforming, making more money, and are more profitable than their market peers.
We call them "Digital Leaders" – proactively transforming their business models and leading their segments through the frenetic pace of digital – web, social, mobile, big data, analytics, cloud, desktop, and the Internet of Everything.
feature is the partner for intentional Digital Leaders.

Dig into the feature story — your digital competitive advantage.
From our modest beginnings in 2008, we became a collection of deeply passionate software engineers, product designers, and entrepreneurial technologists. We loved working with leading-edge digital technologies to improve the everyday lives of our clients. We had a willingness to work directly with Digital Leaders on their business goals of economic success. We have an individual state of the art (SOTA) that gives each of us different perspectives to innovate and solve problems. We study heuristics, successes and failures, seeking continuous improvement. We realized the Firm was moving at light speed, from strength to strength, in a relentless pursuit of product development excellence.
Unsurpassed talent. Best-of-breed product delivery and program management.
While these are the types of benefits you expect, we had a grand vision connecting in a more meaningful way. We would need to be more aggressive in building only what matters to address your toughest business challenges while also revolutionizing the state of the art of the software industry.
As purpose-led innovators, analysts, technologists and pioneers, we seek to change your status quo, too. We've built endurance in empowering the most resourceful game changers to grow and transform our clients. Our business model, product development life cycle services, and culture was intentional, and built with care, to deliver the critical elements of your modern digital brand.

How do we deliver faster, more efficiently, and cost-effectively than anyone else on the planet?
Every product expert at feature spends at least 10 hours per week for research, prototyping, experimenting, and sharing knowledge with new approaches, concepts, methods, tools, and technologies. We see it as the cost of doing business to continue to move the needle for our client's as partners, and remain one of the most innovative cultures on the planet.
We invest as we build and learn. Tools, frameworks, products, whatever it takes. We place emphasis on building trust, surmounting challenges, sharing, teams, and respecting family first.
RESEARCH + DEVELOPMENT
There's more than coding than code. We teach, learn, and solve problems with each other. We read up on our craft, share knowledge, and gain real experience through research and prototypes. It's not uncommon for book clubs, presentations, and science projects brewing around the office.
We break things, and build better ones. Always refining in professional and practical application through experiments and open source contributions in a relentless pursuit of software engineering excellence.
