Cultivate’s team have been building the highest quality Ruby on Rails applications since 2009. Throughout our history, we’ve operated under a number of brand names (EdgeCase, Neo and Cultivate), but our vision and passion for our craft remains unchanged. We’ve been at the core of the Ruby community for many years, organising the hugely successful Scottish Ruby Conference.
Our senior team have partnered with clients of all sizes to create Ruby on Rails products from the ground up. We've also partnered with existing teams on some of the world’s largest applications. Our clients cover startup, enterprise and government organisations and we flex our approach to fit with their unique requirements.
We care deeply about the quality of our work. Aside from our highly selective hiring process, we work in pairs, write tests first, deploy to production frequently and regularly reflect on our progress. This ensures the highest quality code and reduced time to delivery.

We don't cut corners, and will never compromise the quality of your product to create more work for ourselves, or to undercut other consultancies on price. With Cultivate, you get the best industry talent, the highest quality code, and unparalleled excellence in software strategy, scalability and sustainability.
We use a combination of tools and processes to ensure transparency, frequent and honest feedback and communication with all areas of business. We aim for frequent communication throughout the entirety of our projects, aiming for the following as a minimum level of contact:
- Daily morning stand-up call
- Daily summary email
- Frequent “show and tell” demonstrations
- ‘Always on’ discussion available through Slack or similar tools
- Beginning of week - Iteration Planning Meeting
- Bi-weekly - project retrospective
Our senior team have many years of experience building the highest quality Ruby on Rails applications, combining in-depth technical, business and industry knowledge with experience across multiple sectors. We are long term lean and agile practitioners and have a deep understanding of product management, user experience design and visual design.
We love working with clients who share our passion for creating high quality products that deliver real business value. If you're looking to work with a team that will consistently deliver to the highest standard, we'd love to start a conversation around how we could partner with you.
