14 Oranges Software is not your average mobile application development company.

Our team is balanced between creative and analytical mindsets: engineers, developers, sales people, designers, managers and graphic artists. We operate as a highly distributed company with the option of working from home, or in an office environment. We trust our employees, and in return, all our employees earn an ownership stake in our firm.
