We have a team of 8 highly capable developers with broad experience over the full stack; from databases and file systems to CSS and JavaScript. All of them play two roles: development and project management. This allows us to support a given project with a single and continuous point of contact and bring in other Mugos to address workload and specific or tricky requirements.

Doug has been working on web projects since 2001, although he has been programming since the 80s. Pre-web he worked on various things including games, industrial robots, and a prototype fusion reactor control system.
