Our CompanyThe intersection of knowledge & creativity
Execution of Creativity
The German term Rückbau literally translates to “jerk build,” but what it means is much closer to the idea of elegantly jury rigging broken systems. Our own philosophy is not too different. As opposed to violent and revolutionary development cycles that result in over-engineered and under-utilized technology, we believe in a holistic, evolutionary cycle that prioritizes getting it done, whatever “it” might be.
What We Do
Our engineers and strategy consultants have been trusted to lead large scale projects in a variety of settings, from the military industrial complex to successful, venture-backed start-ups. Ruckbau’s team includes expert engineers who specialize in code stacks, electronics, and system design. We specialize in incubation development and start up consulting.
We’re not your typical technology outsourcing firm. You know the kind: an assembly-line of low-paid, inexperienced interns half way around the world. We’re also not the kind of technology shop that provides you with an endless supply of guns for hire – turning your offices into the wild west, with each consultant looking out for his or her own neck. With those kinds of firms, nobody is paying attention to the big picture, let alone the little details. Although we’re a newer company (founded in 2012), we have a ton of experience to draw from. Our team is made up of professionals that, prior to working at Ruckbau, worked at large government think-tanks, fortune 500 companies, and university research facilities.

The BIG Picture
Rückbau has played pivotal roles in numerous class action and IP litigation cases throughout North America. The companies network is made up of programmers, scientists, and tech experts who don’t just analyze technology stacks, but create them. Besides development services, our team helps organizations review, organize, and analyze data – irrespective of its format or location.

The “cloud” is not one-size-fits-all. At Rückbau, we understand that better than anyone. We have been developing “cloud” applications since before they had that name; back when the “cloud” meant a grid computing environment with a web service API. Nowadays, the right cloud solution can run almost all of your business procesess: marketing, operations, sales, and more. The trick is to have the right technology partner to get you properly integrated with the right platform.
“Crafting, creating, and performing should only be done for the love of it. I feel like there has been a tendency in the last 15 years for doing things out of fashion and not for the love of what you do.“
