"Kohactive has become an invaluable arm of our company and had a very positive impact thus far. We're very happy with the quality of the platform they've built."
- Kevin Jones, Founder & CEO, Jones Software Corp.

We build smart, scalable custom
software systems.

API Development

Building your application with a core API enables you to create a dynamic, device-agnostic central application layer that you can build upon.

Software Integrations

Utilizing third-party APIs can be an efficient and low-cost means of accessing data or providing functionality for your users without the overhead of building custom software.


Building small, distinct services for core components of your software can improve maintainability, scalability, and development velocity.

Our approach

A modern approach to development

Agile Development

Agile development is a powerful methodology for building software, especially in the face of uncertainty. We run weekly sprints and work closely with you to define requirements and expectations. We’ll help build a backlog and ensure we’re consistently prioritizing our tasks. You’ll have full visibility into the product and process but also maintain the flexibility to make changes as things evolve.

Pair Programming

Two heads are better than one. We strive to pair program 20-30% of our time. It allows us to build high-quality software quickly and efficiently. With pairing, developers are able to transfer knowledge, hold each other accountable, and maintain a high standard of quality. Pair programming is even more important when we’re working through more difficult technical challenges.

Code icon

Test-Driven Development

We write automated tests to validate our application code works as expected. Unit tests allow us to test the individual components while integration tests provide a fuctionalty test of features and processes of the application. Aside from establishing best practices for a product, test-driven development increases the long-term maintainability of the codebase.

Delivery icon

Continuous Delivery

We deploy as often as possible. As soon as new code passes the automated tests, it’s deployed to staging and available for your review. This allows us to get feedback quickly and make the necessary updates. Once it’s approved, we deploy to production and begin a feedback loop with customers. This is the best way to continuously improve a product.

Our technologies

Smart design, sophisticated technology

Ruby on Rails

We really like Ruby on Rails. We’ve worked with it for a long time, we've contributed to open source projects, and we've built all kinds of products on the framework. Using Ruby on Rails, our team can bring products to market quickly and with much lower overhead. The framework is robust and has an active and vibrant community.
