Monterail has just celebrated its ninth birthday! Isn’t this milestone a good opportunity to take a look at how we got here, draw some lessons from our experiences, and make plans for the future with even greater enthusiasm?
Let’s take care of the numbers first, all while nibbling on a piece of a lovely vegan chocolate birthday cake.
Happy Birthday, Monterail!
By numbers alone, our company history looks pretty impressive:
Yet, our growth wasn’t just about data. The culture that informs our work, our lives, and even our leisure activities has been continuously shifting toward embracing more straightforward solutions. We moved often, because we grew. And we wanted a perfect office, a space designed especially for us. A place for builders, creators, makers. For people who enjoy everyday small talk just as much as talking about tech or project problems. Who enjoy hanging out outdoors together, working together, and spending time together.

When we started in 2010, we were just a small, tight-knit group of people dedicated to the craft of product-building. Since then, our attitude has not changed—we still want to deliver meaningful software, create complex solutions for clients all over the world, and continue providing a consistently great customer experience. Guided by these values, we’ve managed to grow our team to over ninety team members boasting all the skills that may be required to make a piece of software successful—all the way from initial concept to final release.

Over the last nine years, the Monterail team:
There’s nothing more exciting than going out there and saying why what you do matters. That’s what drives us when we organize, support, and attend local events in Wrocław. We love to listen to others speak about what they do; and we love to share what we’ve done.Marta Dziergwa Talent Specialist
Our clients are satisfied, as are our team members. As we continued to grow, year after year, our efforts began to draw the attention of major business organizations and industry publications, known for keeping very precise numbers. So let’s go through some of Monterail’s achievements from the past nine years:
Recently, we’ve been called the “Top Web App Design Company’ by Man.digital, after our marketing strategy was studied alongside those of other leading European software houses. We are very proud of the awards and recognition we’ve received over the years, as the honors seem to confirm that yes, we are actually doing it well.
Monterail’s Clutch rating
Definitely down the path of continued growth—but we want to grow at a healthy, measured pace, so that we can continue to provide a stable work environment for our team. We want to build a healthy business, with healthy people, translating that approach into sustainable long-term growth. Furthermore, we want Monterail to be a healthy work environment that will support each individual member of our team in their professional growth. As we do so, we also become more professional in those areas that drive our growth and inform our business perspective.
We want to be proud of our work, and our commitment to things that matter, that are useful, that have a genuine impact on the world. We are constantly looking for companies to collaborate with in our pursuit to create meaningful software—companies that will benefit from that remarkable mix of developers, designers, QA and project managers we are proud to be team members with. We aim to remain a reliable partner, experts in our field, capable of consistently delivering a high-quality product, while still doing our utmost to understand our clients’ needs, limitations, and the ecosystems they operate in. Additionally, we intend to remain a reliable employer, championing transparent communication and delivering on our promises.
To do that, however, we need to have a great team. We’re still looking for more new friends to join us. If you’d like to fly high with us, check out our Careers page.
