Are you an industry thought leader with a strong network in mobile, cloud, or web and the ability to build new business? Fed up with endless meetings, stifling bureaucracy, and caps on your potential? Explore a unique opportunity to drive your own future as Sourcebits Studio Director.
Sourcebits Studios are discrete practice groups with focus in specific areas from Mobile Enterprise Applications to Web Gaming. Each is headed by a highly qualified Studio Director who is responsible for driving their Studio’s projects from initial client engagement to final delivery.
Studio Directors are industry leaders in mobile, cloud, and UX design—from the former CEO of the world’s largest open-source mobile platform, to an Apple Design Award winner.
As a Director you’ll share completely in the success of your studio, and have full authority to run it as your own business unit—with unlimited potential. At the same time, you’ll have access to all of the resources Sourcebits provides as a global company backed by Sequoia Capital and IDG Ventures. Sourcebits gives an unprecedented level of support and trust to Studio Directors, and Directors return that trust by delivering spectacular service and results for their clients.
You’ll work with amazing people throughout the company who care as deeply about the success of your clients’ projects as you do. Because Studios work together, clients have access to the best minds in mobile, web, and cloud development across multiple platforms and disciplines. At the core of Sourcebits Studios you’ll find more than 400 Sourcebits employees, each whom bring their extreme passion and focus to client projects across a wide range of talents and skills.
We’re looking for a few people who share that passion and focus and can back it up with a track record of success. If you think you have what it takes to lead your own Studio, get in touch below to learn more.
We believe that cross-platform doesn’t just mean different OS or screen size. Cross-platform means true mobility, with consistent user experiences across all users interaction with your product.
We don’t take shortcuts by slapping an existing solution, existing designs, and existing code together to create a hodge-podge “package” for you. We don’t recommend the same solution to you that we built for another customer — your needs are different, and your challenges, unique. How could the solution be any less?
Your projects are directed by world-class team leaders with backgrounds in UX strategies, UI design, development, and branding who personally drive and manage the progress of your projects at every step.
Sourcebits has worked with some of the largest enterprises in the world, helping these enormous entities enter the mobile space and unify their vision across web, mobile, desktop, and social networks. When your organization uses multiple agencies to tackle each platform, it’s typically difficult to bridge and unite these separate entities. But when you work with Sourcebits, unifying applications across platforms is never an issue.
Starting from the design of the user-facing applications, which are tweaked for maximum usability and enterprise productivity, to system architecture design, cloud or dedicated server deployment plans, and ﬁnally individual bits of code, everything is customized to suit your needs. We focus extensively on making sure that your product will work smoothly across as many platforms, environments and contexts as possible within the scope of your project.
Bridging The Gap Between Mobile and Web
One example of Sourcebits’ ability to develop across multiple platforms is a mobile security application we built for an enterprise client for both iOS and Android, including a fully realized web-based portal for app management. With Android's open platform and iOS’ restrictions, the challenge was to create a set of features and UI that would not only complement both platforms, but excel individually based on each platform’s strengths.
Sourcebits carefully designs applications from the ground up to ensure they're completely optimized for their host platforms. We never port an existing interface onto another OS as-is. For this enterprise solution, Android and iOS developers worked together alongside the design team to understand which security features could (and couldn’t) be implemented on each platform. Designing the app without a complete understanding of both platforms’ capabilities and limitations would have led to holes in the UI, with features that worked on one platform, but not the other.
One of the bigger challenges was implementing the web portal to manage both apps, each with their own unique features. The simple yet ingenious solution was to create a dynamic site that tailored itself to the particular mobile platform being managed. The result was a complete, rich user experience that ﬂawlessly controlled apps on both platforms.
