About Us

HydraDev was founded in 2015 by three talented developers with over a decade of experience between them and has since grown to be a multi-disciplinary team of seven. The purpose of our team is to design and implement the best software solutions for any given problem, the more challenging the better. With this goal in mind, we seek and train the best developers and offer our collective talent to foreign and local clients. Our background in R&D gives us the cutting edge we need to rise above the competition.

Our Offer

We specialize in lean end-to-end product development on both web and mobile platforms.

We understand the need for clean, readable, reusable code that scales well with your product, from a simple MVP that proves your concept to the basis of a system handling hundreds of thousands of requests per minute.
