We are MarsBased

Development from out of this world

The MarsBased tech stack

We are a development shop highly specialized in Ruby on Rails. Our team is mostly based in Barcelona, but we work remotely at an international level.

We build our apps using Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, Elastic search, HTML5, CSS3, Sass and other awesome state-of-the-art technologies, while applying agile development methodologies.

We are a development shop with startup DNA. Largely inspired by the Lean Startup methodology, we develop applications the artisan way while getting involved with your company's business strategy, building elegant and high-quality solutions. More than a provider, we become your partner all throughout the project.

If you want us to develop for you, contact us now for a free chat!

PisosBancos

MVP for new platform

PisosBancos.com contacted us to rewrite their platform from scratch. They had gone through multiple providers and their app had too much legacy.

We built an MVP for them to keep up with their business model while building a new architecture to serve both PisosBancos and SubastasDe.

We just finished the first part of this project, where a pure Rails app was built to be improved in the coming months.
