dxw works with the public sector to create exemplary web experiences. We use the organisation’s needs and end user needs as a starting point for the websites that we design, build, host, and keep secure.

We formed in 2008. Since then, we have delivered lots of cost-effective projects to the public sector, from informational and consultation sites, to transactional customer services and collaborative intranets.

Our work follows agile principles, meaning that small improvements can be made easily over time, and user feedback becomes part of the fabric of the project. We are experts in Ruby on Rails® and WordPress development, and have developed a number of our own products for development, testing, hosting and security, all aimed at making the web work better.
