Hi, I'm Matt McGinnis, a web and mobile consultant in the S.F. Bay Area.

These are my preferred tools for building modern web and mobile apps.

Non-geek translation: Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Javascript, Ember.js, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, Git, Github, Android, iOS, and Phonegap


I'm based in the S.F. Bay area and specialize in building high quality MVPs for startups. One recent client, CareMessage.org was accepted to Y Combinator and another client was accepted to the Plug and Play accelerator after I built their apps.


In addition to full-stack development with Ruby on Rails and Ember.js, I will help you with product direction and feature development. I challenge clients to eliminate unnecessary features which results in cost savings and focused MVPs.


I'm a strong believer in automated testing which translates into a high-quality product with little to no user facing bugs. This gives my clients an extremely high level of confidence when adding new features and deploying. If you're looking for someone to make your vision come to life, give me a call.
