Tazpit Software is a group of tech ‘savvies’ in their twenties doing their thing from Transylvania – land of mystery and intrigue, and home to an obscure 15th century count whose name escapes us just now...
Feeding Focused on startups, we help them at every stage of their product development pre- and post product-market fit. We know them inside-out, as we’ve been working with them from way back when mobile apps were born. What’s more, we are a startup too, having our own products. We know you, because we are you.
Our Design team takes pride in developing great mobile experiences. Whenever one of our Designers stops taking pride in his work, we give him a hug, buy him a Fanta and send him to a day spa. All kidding aside, we're really only satisfied when mobile users experience the utility of our apps through a beautiful experience. The voice of the people is what matters; it fuels our creativity.
Someone really smart once said “design is just a dream without careful execution”. We agree with this statement and, thus, rely on our technical skills to deliver a solid product. Our development and design teams work hand-in-hand to implement bold ideas in the most precise and reliable way. And did we mention on-budget, too?
“It's an absolute pleasure working with Tazpit Software. They're an all-star team with the rare combination of flair, expertise and can-do attitude. Whatever we are working on together, from sketchiest concept to trickiest execution, I have total confidence in their ability to deliver an exceptional result.”
COO at SmartUp.io @ Founders Forum
“Levi, Szabi, and their team at Tazpit Software have tremendous talent, their work is slick, they are reliable, honest, and even though we come from the land Down Under (Australia), communicating with them is refreshingly easy. I envision working with them for a very long time.”
Founder & CEO at Konversed
"Communication is good, code has high quality first time we run it, we are learning to work together better and better, so we are very pleased and happy with Tazpit! Every now and then the team does something clever and cool. Not always something big, but the small things that shows we are working with smart people “that get it” :) You know, the strawberry on top of the cake that makes Tazpit a notch above “the rest of the market."
Team Leader for BlueSkyMe
"It has been a pleasure working with the team at Tazpit Software. They master new technologies easily, challenge decisions in the right way and are always proactive.

Founder and CTO at Mr & Mrs Smith
"We were really happy with the work, and the timeliness and professionalism the guys from Tazpit exhibited. Simply put, you won't go wrong partnering with them - they have a great sense of design, are punctual and time-efficient, and a general pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!"
Marketing & Co-founder & CEO at Pathgather
“Levi and his team have been reliable, professional and collaborative. They have helped us create several iOS apps through all4mychild, LLP and we have been more than pleased with the results.

Founder at yourVirtualSIM, Business Development Manager US at tyntec
"They are creative, open-minded and often move faster and more efficient than we do. The ‘final’ product is what we wanted and conceived; we are totally satisfied with the current form and how it evolved during the creation process. With all due respect to future Romanian football clubs that will also have an app, I believe that our product set a pretty high standard that will be difficult to reach. I would absolutely recommend Tazpit Software’s services to others."

Tazpit’s other founder, Szabi, is more pragmatic. He’s responsible
for running current projects, but doesn’t mind picking up the phone to

discussing Tazpit's next big thing.

Liberated from dogma and doctrine, Tazpit can move forward with minimal friction. Every team member is free to live, breathe, create – and daydream about wizards from time to time.
