15 years of Custom Software Development

Diatom Enterprises 15 Years anniversary!

15 years of Custom Software Development

Today we are celebrating 15 years since our company started providing custom software development services for the commercial IT market.

The company was founded by three developers in 2004 and we worked in a rented apartment. Our first project was with a growing company RealtyTrac. We moved existing infrastructure from ASP into the ASP.NET world and setup a platform for all new development. Since then they have become the third largest mobile and online real estate resource in the United States.

Simultaneously we developed a project for a New York company connected with Princeton University in the United States.

All owners of Diatom Enterprises are software developers and this way we were able to reach high level of quality in each project from very beginning. The company started receiving more and more orders and references from existing clients and the company began to grow.

We are dedicated to efficient processes, quality and communication. Thanks to successful experience with us, often happens, that many of our clients returned to us with new ideas to implement or they referenced us to someone else. Because of these references, we started receiving new and interesting projects – a lot of them from Silicon Valley in California. For example, we worked in Palo Alto, California, and our office was 200 feet from the Facebook office in 2010.

From the very beginning, our company has used the most advanced and efficient North American communication, development and project management techniques. Even though Diatom Enterprises is a Latvian company and works from Europe, we provide East-European price levels.

In accordance with the American style of business, Diatom usually takes care of all the communication, evaluation and the launch of a project from the very beginning. All our customers note that it is easy to work with us!

That is why we often work as subcontractors and software development vendors for start-ups in the United States, Canada, Sweden, Finland and the United Kingdom.

From a tech point of view, our services and expertise have been wide-ranging over the years. We’ve worked with ASP.NET in 2004, MVC 2006-2008, SaaS, Amazon Web Services 2008-2010, Google Cloud solutions, MS Azure 2012-2016, micro services 2016-2019, native mobile and tablet app development  and cross-platform development with Xamarin, Apache Cordova and React Native. For front-end development, we use TypeScript, Angular, React and Vue.js.

In addition, even though we started as Microsoft.NET software firm, over time we founded and organized strong departments in Ruby on Rails and Node.js.

In 2016 we began actively experimenting with robotics software development, partnered with Softbank Robotics and acquired the robot Pepper, with which we have been able to carry out several commercial projects.

Currently, our clients include small companies and business-sector leaders from the United States, Sweden, and United Kingdom. Among these is the largest private resort club in the United States, one of the top 3 American companies in the real estate software business with over 95% of American properties, and Eurostar, which provides transportation services between the United Kingdom and Europe.

We work together with our customers’ existing IT departments, effectively increasing their production capacity. We also successfully help organizations whose software development processes do not yet exist, organizing all processes from scratch using our rich experience.

Diatom Enterprises is grateful to all our clients. Together we are making our world a better place, technological and efficient.

Once again, thank you all for your collaborative efforts. We are sure that many years of interesting work are waiting for us in the future!
