Headquartered in downtown Vancouver and privately owned, Gravit-e Technologies specializes in custom software and web application development.

Since our inception in 2005, Gravit-e has worked with nearly 150 clients, ranging from small start-ups, to non-profits, to large organizations such as the City of Vancouver, Simon Fraser University and Sutton Realty.

At its core, Gravit-e is comprised of a small, highly experienced team of senior developers. We are strong believers in focusing exclusively on what we do best: building custom software. We also recognize that truly successful projects require more than a superior development team. To this end, many of our projects involve collaboration with one or more trusted partner organizations, each of whom bring their skills to bear on their specific areas of expertise. This approach gives us unparalleled flexibility in assembling the ideal team for each and every project we take on, while still acting as a single, unified team.
