Wildebeest was formed in 2014 by Ran Craycraft and Kevin Ng as a product- and platform-focused custom software development company. We're guided by our founding principle: Software is the world’s most powerful medium. It’s our tool and our inspiration to build transformative products that put power back in people’s lives.
What's In a Name?
Wildebeest are some of the world's fastest animals. They’re peaceful animals, but they never get complacent. They always have their eyes on the changing landscape and on each other, relying on the group’s swarm intelligence to overcome challenges. Their speed, hunger for what’s next, watchfulness, and teamwork are inspirations to us as we build, innovate, and accelerate.
Today, we're fortunate to get to work with some of the world's largest and most innovative brands building custom software that accelerates businesses and improves the lives of people around the world.
