What we do

We craft beautiful mobile technology solutions that hide the technological complexity from the user. We create a rich user experience, not only through visual design but also the combination of technology and simple user interface design.

We help our clients build apps that have impact. We don’t build useless apps. We build apps that have a purpose and will make the user think, interact and generally enrich their life.

Why we do what we do

Passion for new technology is deeply ingrained in jtribe’s DNA. Our office is filled with gadgets, hardware, mobile and integrated devices that are on the brink of entering the mainstream market. We like a challenge and this is why we are always on the lookout for complex client problems.

Our developers are all based in Australia and work from our co-working office in the centre of Melbourne. jtribe established the co-working space (OpenHub) in 2007, creating a dynamic environment we like to work in and share with other start-ups. The diversity of companies who work at OpenHub adds to the culture of jtribe and the way we do things.

App development process

We understand the app development process well. We subscribe to the agile approach when we work on large projects. Our clients appreciate the way we work and our deep technical understanding.

No project is too small for us as long as it offers us a technical challenge. If you have any of those challenges then you should talk to us.

High quality apps

We produce high quality apps and need to be paid accordingly. Working with us will not result in something “done on the cheap”. It will be an app or a mobile solution that looks, feels and behaves like an expensive app. We can only create a highly polished mobile solution with highly skilled team members and need to charge slightly above market. If the app is simple, you will find your budget is respected and carefully used to create a solution that matches your budget. (How much does it cost to develop an app?)

Technology and services

We work with technologies including: Augmented reality, visual computation, highly customised user interfaces, tactile feedback devices, bluetooth connectivity for wrist devices (Android watch), Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and iBeacon, face recognition, realtime distributed mobile apps, highly secure apps, data protection, highly scalable middleware for mobile apps and disruptive retail solutions.

Here is a list of some of the services jtribe has to offer:

  • iPhone/iPad App Development
  • Android App Development
  • Mobile Web Development
  • iPhone & Android Developer Training and Coaching
  • Mobile strategy consulting
  • Scoping Workshops using Wire Frames + Prototyping
  • Consulting around the complete mobile EcoSystem
  • Server-side development to drive mobile apps
  • Enterprise application development and consulting
  • Mobile solution architecture for complex problems


OpenHub has attracted a community of co-workers from creative and technical backgrounds, creating a nicely balanced work environment. From time to time, we host developer training evenings or information sessions which are pretty informal and a good opportunity for developers to get together. We have already hosted some great events and look forward to many more! How to find jtribe?

How we communicate

We like to think we have our own culture, but speak your language. Yes we are developers. Yes, we live and breathe code. But we don’t speak it. We’re not here to throw around technical jargon. We pride ourselves on keeping technology simple. We think we do a pretty good job of keeping our Android and iPhone apps simple. And most importantly, communication with the client is ongoing, straight forward and easy to understand. We want our clients to enjoy the journey of developing an app, so we work with them.

Our Beliefs

Be Impactful - we only work on projects we believe will have a positive impact on the way people use technology. This is why we focus on digital products. Being able to reach millions of users with an app is just as important as creating an app that is life-changing for a small group of users. As a result of the impact, we sometimes come up with disruptive solutions that open up new pathways for our clients.

Be Fair - we are very conscious of treating co-workers, partners and clients with fairness. It is one of the foundations jtribe is built upon, ensuring we produce great project outcomes, long-term relationships within a culture that is inclusive and gives personal satisfaction.

Be Sustainable - we are here for the long run and any deicison we make has long-term implications in mind. As a sustainable business we believe in open and free markets. We are here to provide for our employees and families and to help grow an app industry. We need to get paid so our great organisation can keep growing.
