Conscious Coding

Who are we?

Thought Driven Development is a remote-first web and mobile software development consultancy based in the United States.

Our mission is to deliver transformative solutions to our clients that catalyze unforeseen growth.

We see the touchpoint of human behavior and technology as the integral forum for any serious product evolution. We prioritize bringing deliberate thoughtfulness to bear upon the quantitative and qualitative effects this intersection has on the consumer experience. In this light, we believe that in results based development it is in fact the thought that counts.

For your sake and ours we are dead serious about delivering results to our clients' customers and only accede to challenges we feel we can affect positively.

What do we do?

Our work is distinguished by a profound interest in the human condition and its interaction with technology as our planet’s defining process.

Fastidious listening and reasoned curiosity are our greatest assets as we seek to grasp in detail the character of our client’s problems and the wide ranging implications of any solution. We see success as an outcome that eliminates our clients' problems as they knew them, provides sustainable ease, and opens new doors through bolstering the integrity of operations.


University of Chicago

We were selected by professor Steven Levitt, co-author of New York Times Bestseller "Freakonomics," to work with an innovation lab dedicated to finding unorthodox solutions to difficult social problems.

Our service oriented architecture performs real-time analysis on trillions of events annually.



We worked with the legendary technology brand to build a series of elevated lead-generation assessments.


Vital City

Working with Design For Progress, we developed the software and workflows that allowed them to launch a new digital publication, Vital City, focused on criminal justice reform in New York City.

We also worked with them to develop an interactive digital art-piece that teaches people about the history of gun violence in New York.
