Tech for web startups

We take ideas from napkin notes to product launch – and beyond

What can we do for you?

Some Fantastic provides software development services and consultancy to startups and SMEs looking to establish, scale or rethink web and mobile applications. Based in the UK, we use the best open-source software to build satisfying new products for our clients across a diverse range of sectors.

Brilliant bespoke results

We specialise in creating sophisticated, usable and reliable web applications. We design and build efficient, clean front-end code complemented by scalable, robust backends, web services and integrations.

Client-focused development

We'll help you shape your initial idea, involve you closely in the design and development cycles, keep measuring and iterating after the product is launched, then help you transition to your own team once you've found a product-market fit.

Collaborative consultancy

Want a sound view on your current products? Want to create a roadmap for your new idea? We'll provide carefully considered advice. Expect some tough love and plain talk.

Budget-conscious builds

We're used to working with clients who have a keen eye on their cash flow. Whether you're bootstrapped or bolstered by VC funding, we'll help keep your burn rate as low as is prudent.

Flexible, distributed teams

We've been operating 100% remotely and 100% effectively for more than a decade, following years of on-site work with clients. The right tools and processes let us call on additional team players whenever we need them – and wherever they are.

Crafted content

The best web apps don't just have robust, maintainable, efficient code: they need high-quality copy too, from user cues to FAQs. We can provide or polish content to top-notch standards, tuned to the project's needs.

What have we worked on?

We're lucky.

We choose to work with a broad range of clients, meaning that – for more than a decade – no two client projects have been anywhere near the same. Whether we're collaborating with existing teams or running the entire project, it's always been good to expand our horizons, including...

A world-class freelancer booking marketplace. A supply-chain tracking system that promotes sustainable and ethical sourcing. A karaoke streaming platform rebuild with a hard deadline of Christmas Eve. Numerous Amazon Alexa Skills. An Amazon Marketplace-style drop-shipping platform (since acquired by Google). Facebook Platform Apps for international brands. An online recipe database that integrated with a large series of physical books. A smart metering platform.One of the world's busiest fantasy football systems. A bespoke CMS for primary school pupils and staff. A rock-solid reporting tool for a major sporting charity. A solar energy e-commerce site. Campaign sites to help combat climate change. The official site for the world's foremost detective-story writer (yes, her). And much more...

How we work – and why we do it this way

Some Fantastic is headed by Steve Jalim and backed by a high-quality network of project management, design and development freelancers.

This means we can scale our teams to suit organisations both large and small, and with varying technical and creative needs. Some projects simply require Steve, others need a hand-picked squad of specialists.

In a line: we put together the team you need, rather than give you the only one we have.

We only call on people we've directly worked with, or who come recommended by trusted industry friends. Getting a place in our our little blue book of brilliance isn't easy.

We're happy to work for clients anywhere, and have years of experience of highly effective remote working.

Indeed, we're so confident and practised in our ability to work this way, we moved HQ to the rolling countryside after several years in London, while keeping existing clients in the capital (and winning new ones, of course).

Naturally, for on-site meetings, workshops and initial stages of development, we're happy to come to wherever you are.
