We’re a team of technologists dedicated to excellence
Foxhound Systems was founded in 2020 by Christian and Ben with the mission of making best-in-class software systems. Our team takes on a wide variety of engagements ranging from creating greenfield applications from idea to production system to working as technical consultants providing guidance on system architecture and performance in thousand-person organizations. The software systems we’ve built run today at many organizations, continually being used by millions of end users both in the United States and internationally.
Our speciality and passion is in building full-featured SaaS applications in both B2B and B2C business domains. We’ve developed products in many industries, including ecommerce, online marketplaces, video streaming, educational software, and developer tooling. Clients that get the most value from working with us engage us long before code is ready to be written. When we begin working with a team at the outset of a new initiative, we can help develop and refine a product vision, and offer guidance on how to maximize impact and minimize development costs by identifying high value features, and minimize risk of unforeseen delays on the path to an initial product.
