Our Toolbox

Ruby on Rails.

Second Star Labs was founded as a Ruby on Rails shop, and while we have broadened our expertise significantly since then, more often than not, Rails is the right tool for the job.


For cases when the web just isn't enough, we love diving into the intricate and beautiful world of dedicated mobile development.

Responsive design.

The ecosystem of the Internet is changing before our eyes – flexible, retina-enabled, mobile-ready websites are here to stay, and we couldn't be more excited for the future of the web.

Our Services

Launch preparation.

For clients who just want to test out an idea, we're happy to host a full wireframing & story carding session, followed by initial design, branding and proof-of-concept prototypes. We'll help you lay the groundwork necessary to get your project started in the right direction.


Working with Second Star Labs goes beyond code & pixels – we help our clients with their team & process as well as their project. We offer comprehensive code, design and process reviews, and can help you with everything from your data infrastructure to your interviewing & hiring process.

Project development.

And, of course, we'll help you take your project from dream to reality. Whether you're looking to launch something brand new or rework a legacy project, we're ready to make it happen.
