We specialise in designing and engineering social web applications to help people transform their lives and their communities.
We never use technology for the sake of it, because we look closely at what users need and build something that fits neatly into their day-to-day lives. No square-peg-round-hole situations.
We are here
We’re based in Brighton, an hour away from London, on the south coast of England.
Brighton is well-established as one of the UK’s leading digital and creative cities and is perfectly suited for agile and ‘light-working’ patterns; making use of flexible space and the freelance work economy.
Who we are
Dharmafly is headed by Premasagar Rose, who has steered the company through more than five years of exciting growth. He’s infectiously conscientious, and has his finger on the pulse of web technology.
Each project that Dharmafly works on involves hand-picking the best professionals in the field to form a fixed core team. The company works on a film-industry model, with teams assembling and disassembling on a project-by-project basis.
How we work
There are a lot of ‘empty’ web platforms. Some organisations invest a great deal in building a polished, tangible platform, but invest too little in supporting the intangible part – the emerging life of the community itself. Or ‘social design‘, if you like.
We do this by employing two processes: Human Centred Design (HCD) and Agile software development. Agile is the best way we know to deliver something that succeeds, and Human Centred Design (HCD) is the best way to discover what ‘succeeds’ means before we start building.
