We are proud to be a full-time integrated tech partner for RightWay and are humbled to be part of their success in becoming a unicorn company.

BREAKING NEWS: Rightway, a leading healthcare technology and services company, raised $100 million in Series C financing at a valuation of $1.1 billion.

Dmitry and Muffins have been great partners. They have a deep bench of talent and have been able to quickly source a variety of skillsets to meet our ever-changing needs. The team (and they do work as a team) has impressive engineering expertise and has gone above and beyond in learning regulatory industry frameworks such as HIPAA. I would highly recommend Muffins to anyone considering their services.

We joined a small and talented team of BookFresh back in 2013 to help them migrate their tech stack to Ruby on Rails before they got acquired by Square. Later on, after the successful acquisition, we were humbled and happy to continue working with Square on the freshly designed style guide.

Muffins is fantastic! Dmitry and his team are extremely skilled. Their work continuously exceeds expectations.

team integration
GoPro (General Things) has hired our entire team in 2013 to help them scale up and improve their codebase. The project code was good but the media files architecture needed to be cleaner. We DRYed it, implemented STI for media and removed a lot of repeated logic. Only a small part of the logic was covered by tests so we added additional tests to cover the rest. We used Bootstrap to change the view of the admin area and got rid of the extra CSS complexity.

I’ve worked with Dmitry and Muffins on two different established and widely used Ruby on Rails sites and would highly recommend their professionalism and dedication. They are easy to work with and learned our processes and codebases quickly. The engineers offer a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from their work with different clients, yet they remain flexible when the toolset or architecture differs. Dmitry also provides valuable input and insights on both technical and business matters. I would certainly engage them again on future projects.

Partnership with Digital Telepathy has become one of the best educational events for us muffins. The spirit and principles that the DT team carries are unparalleled! Chuck & Arnold instantly became our mentors. We were fortunate to be Digital Telepathy main technical partner from 2014 to 2016. Digital Telepathy acquired by ServiceNow in 2017.

Working with Muffins is, without question, the best experience that I've ever had with an engineering partner. Not only is the RM team made up of experts, they are professional in their communications and management. Second to none.

Over the last five years, we became a part of an amazing NCSA team. We needed to do extensive code refactoring in a lot of the application, and caching on search pages to update code that was dramatically reducing the page response time. We improved the response time from 3.1 seconds to 2.24.

The Muffins team has been a huge asset to our company. They were able to get up to speed quickly on our code and jump right in to projects. Dmitry was a great help in making sure that initial communication was seamless between our engineers and theirs, and they quickly became an integral part of our team. They are one of the best partners I have ever worked with and I would highly recommend them.

The Pediatric Federation is a channel for successful and thriving medical practices. We built the Purchasology application to gather purchase data from Pediafed's partners and aggregate the supplied large data sets to both a profile and overall organizational level. Our architecture has increased the performance of Pediafed's data import system and of Pediafed as a whole.

Sofia and the Muffins team have been the perfect partner to tackle our complex problem with large data sets. We’ve relied on them through multiple iterations, and are always happy. Couldn't ask for more.

We created an easy way for political candidates to reach voters and accept donations. It includes a convenient interface where candidates can post content to all of their social media feeds in one button press.

Dmitry and his team made the perfect thought partner, to help me take a high-level idea and bring it to life in a stunning and seamless website. Through multiple iterations, they were patient, creative, and very responsive. Couldn't ask for more.
