our Clutch

Hello, we’re Altar.

Our DNA is made of ex-startup founders and the top talent in Product, UX/UI, Software development and Machine & Deep Learning. We came together from various backgrounds with one vision: to bring a lean, user-centric approach to product innovation and software development by completely understanding the business needs before building anything.

Beyond work

We regularly organize all-hand events to meet as a team and do fun stuff together. We also lunch together or go out to listen to our favourite music (random fact: Many of our Altarions play in a band 🎸 🥁)

Meet the Founders

Our founding team started their journeys in the corporate world. They then moved on to build their own startups before coming together to form Altar.io. They studied lean product development through building startups from the ground up with very few resources. This is why when you build a product with us it will always be streamlined to the most important features for your user.
