Oven Bits is a design, development and product strategy agency based in Texas. We enthusiastically craft results-driven, award-winning software that is a delight to use. We believe that the right tools and experiences can grow businesses, foster brand interaction and accomplish real goals.
Our work has been generously featured by Starbucks, Techcrunch, Google, Apple, CBS, Mashable and other major outlets. The Oven Bits team is mostly based in Dallas, but we have great people spread across the country from Virginia to Seattle. Since 2010, we’ve been baking up amazing experiences and changing people’s lives. We’re just getting started and we can’t wait for you to see what’s next.
People Over Profit
We genuinely care about people: both our clients and one another. Jobs and companies will come and go. No matter what, Oven Bits is a place where everyone should be a better person as a result working with us.
It has been a part of our journey from day one. Whether giving pro-bono services to charities, internally helping employees with medical needs or gathering supplies for neighbors in need, we strive to be generous.
Usefulness as Innovation
Some companies try an approach of either usefulness or innovation. We believe that intuitive utility is a form of innovation itself. We can make an impact on people’s lives through useful, innovative software.
Software created in a vacuum is rarely great. We believe great software is a product of constant iteration and testing by real people outside of our team. We work daily on validated learning and lean principles.
Prolonged silence begets concern. Proactive communication seeds confidence. There isn’t anything wrong with posting a quick update to a colleageue or client even just to say “things are on track.”
In software, there aren’t many problems that haven’t been solved or worked on. When we approach a problem, we always start by seeing where it has been solved before, and learning from those ahead of us.
We believe in being bold. Bold ambition. Bold design. Bold changes. Bold pitches out of our league. Bold humility to save an account. Being bold takes courage and dedication. We’re up for the challenge.
Great people want to work with other great people. A group-led culture of personal growth and ownership fuels our collaborative ambition. We’re lifelong-learners seeking continual improvement.
Wrestle Ideas, Not People
Great products come from great ideas tossed with a healthy dose of friction. However, we focus entirely on the ideas, not those suggesting them. Debating ideas leads to greatness. Demeaning others does not.
Desks On Wheels
We believe proximity fosters collaboration. We aspire to keep project teams together rather than in separate departments organized by skillset. When in the office, or working remotely, our teams work side-by-side.
Teams that manage themselves are often better off than teams that are managed by a single person. We strive to be managers of one and only add light hierarchy to keep everything running smoothly.
Failure is not the enemy. We strive to make mistakes quickly and learn fast. Making mistakes internally, and learning from them, makes our work better because we can catch the mistakes before they leave our doors.
