As veterans of previous digital agencies, the founders of Braid joined forces in Charlottesville, VA to form a new type of agency — one built and run by software engineers.
The name Braid signifies the interweaving of individuals, teams, skill sets and experiences, where the resulting whole is stronger than the sum of its parts.
We are better together. This not only true of Braid's internal team, but also of our collaborations with partners and vendors.
Our belief is that a rising tide lifts all boats. As a result, we value cooperation over competition, and service above being served.
Braid is an on-demand team of software engineers, tailor-made to function as the development arm for our partner businesses.
We understand that the development of applications and websites rests outside of the comfort zone of many organizations, especially considering the vetting, hiring, and management expertise required to smoothly operate a development team.
We believe that a better approach is to partner with a technology team that will scale on-demand based on your specific needs. That is exactly what Braid provides to our partners.
Braid's heart is in Charlottesville, VA, which is a mixture of food and culture, surrounded by beautiful country and mountainscape. One moment you could be sipping wine at a vineyard along Virginia's Monticello Wine Trail. The next, dining in the vibrant historic downtown.
Home of former presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe, Charlottesville was named the happiest place to live by the US National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) in 2014. In 2016, entrepreneur.com named Charlottesville the 4th best city for entrepreneurs.
