Software Development

Built with Honesty, Integrity & Quality

Here's How We Can Help...

Long story short: We are going to do an excellent job. Since we aren’t just another development shop, we start by figuring out what your company needs. Whether you work for a major enterprise or a smaller, nonprofit corporation, we quickly adapt to your existing processes and team while making strategic recommendations along the way.



Our experienced software engineers can become a true extension of your team.

You may have a need for developers and you are looking for incredible talent to extend your team. Maybe you are hoping to get some short-term or long-term assistance, or are having difficulties finding enough local, qualified people. Whatever the reason, our talented software engineers can help to make your team complete. We can talk logistics and figure out an exact match that works for you.

Our nearshore development office in Costa Rica operates only 1-2 hours behind Eastern Time, which allows us to be heavily involved in your day-to-day operations. We can join your video conferences and phone calls, all during your regular business hours. We are also just a 5-hour flight from NYC, and we welcome our clients to visit our team in Costa Rica.



For custom software development projects, we have the talent and expertise to exceed your expectations.

Once we've outlined your company's exact goals, we configure the perfect mix of software engineers and support staff to make it all happen. Our team is equipped with top-of-the-line tools to get the job done right, and we never settle for mediocre.

Whether you have an idea in the beginning stages, or need a team to step in and match the specifications set in place, we have the perfect people for the job.

On top of our love for all things development, we've got a passion for our work that sets us apart from our competitors. We are problem solvers. We are loyal. We take pride in our work and ownership of all that we manage. We are First Factory.

The First Factory Experience

We are here to provide top-notch, custom software development and efficient staff augmentation for your development needs.

We do this in three ways:

A Creative Team

Our developers aren't just talented, they also have a lot of incredible ideas to bring to the table. We hire team members who aren't afraid to speak up when they see something that could be improved upon. When you hire First Factory to handle your development needs, we ensure that you get far more than just a software vendor. Our team is your team, and we make sure it is the best team we can provide.


Quality Work

You’ve heard that you get what you pay for, but we believe that you should get the very best quality work without driving up unnecessary costs. We do this by not over-engineering projects or creating busy-work that wouldn’t be useful for our clients in the end. We wholeheartedly believe that our work speaks for itself, and our clients consistently provide positive feedback to confirm it.



While we do have a safe and overly-secure office in Costa Rica, we want our team to feel like a family. We make sure the open office environment is able to provide every resource needed to our team and allows us to have as much communication as possible. We value the trust our clients have in our abilities and in our specific team members, and we’d love for you to get to know us soon.

At First Factory, we promise to deliver exceptional work with incredible service. The satisfaction of our clients is our top priority, and we work diligently to make it happen.

Jason and his team represent the perfect blend of competence and flexibility. I always trust them to come up with a workable solution within a reasonable budget, and to take total responsibility for the results. We've thrown some hairy and varied challenges at them, and they always come through. Get them on your side!

John Reaves, CEO

Learning Worlds

I have relied upon First Factory for my custom development needs since 2003. Their code is efficient, well-written, and best of all, I don't have to worry about dealing with bugs and "anomalies", but then again, Jason did "write the book, that is, all six of them!" First Factory is a true first choice for all my development requirements.

Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

Our company out-sources a fair amount of software development. To our benefit, we have a continuing relationship with First Factory and turn to them without hesitation for our Web and Client / Server based projects. First Factory has developed front and back end interfaces for high profile customers of our digital signage and security alert products that are intuitive to use and reliable to deploy.
