WHAT WE DO
SocialChorus created a platform that allows people to share their love for brands with the online community. Rather than relying on Mad Men like ad execs, our clients believe that the best form of advertising are happy customers telling good stories about great products. These happy customers, called advocates, are the best way for brands to promote their products through word-of-mouth marketing that you can trust. Every Tweet, Facebook post, LinkedIn share and blog post is the actual opinion of these brand advocates.
WHAT TECH WE USE
We do agile (XP), test-driven development and pair program 85% of the time. We believe that pair programming is the best way to create clean, simple, efficient code quicker. It also allows devs to enjoy a life outside of work. A typical day for a SocialChorus developer is spent giving constant attention to the ever-changing social API’s and building beautiful and simple UI for our advocates. Some of our big challenges include the next generation of our admin app and tackling our big data problem. We believe in following good practices and have already created new gems to help us with our admin app.
