The philosophy behind Denvelopers was born between friends on a snowy porch early in 2009. Community was the focus, community is the focus, and community will continue to be the focus of Denvelopers for the life of the company.
We grew out of partnerships within the nonprofit sector. We understand many of the frustrations and pressures that those of us devoted to the greater good face on a daily basis: grand plans but not enough time/skill to implement them, an online space that seems to shift its focus and tools on a weekly basis, and a desire to wed the digital side of a campaign with the real-life realities of your supporters.
Initially we make sure that we can actually provide value to warrant charging you for our services. If your current website is doing exactly what you want it to do, we’re not going to try and sell you an expensive redesign with a bunch of unnecessary features.
Nonprofits were some of the earliest adopters of social media tools. They realized that there is great value in things that are free. The staff at Denvelopers has been tweeting, sharing, recording, uploading, and cross-posting on the major platforms since Day 2 and we know how to explain them to you so that we don’t have to do all the heavy lifting.
Both of us have worked for web developers who treat social sector clients like private sector clients, and both of us have worked for nonprofits who have been treated like private sector clients. It’s not a comfortable place. Denvelopers is different – we treat our clients with dignity because we understand the unique pressures and limitations of organizations that benefit communities.
We like doing this work because in a way, we’re helping the greater good as well.
Give us a call, find us on Facebook and Twitter, email your questions, meet us for coffee. We’re anxious to work with you to connect the dots between you and your community.
