We are Planet Argon: Helping companies with existing Ruby on Rails web applications make them better and more maintainable.
A dedication to our clients and culture has helped Planet Argon grow from humble beginnings in a Portland apartment to client relationships with some of the biggest names in tech, education, health, and beyond. We believe our values should guide our partnerships, which has allowed us to build long-lasting relationships where we function as a trusted extension of the team.
If you’re seeking an invested technical partner to set your ambitious ideas in motion and help scale your business to new heights, you're in the right place. You can trust us to make it happen.
From a one-man shop in a Portland apartment in 2002 to the agency it is today, here is our story.
Each year, we reflect on the previous 365 days of growth and change.
Our Core Values
We actively seek opportunities to improve our client’s products, our processes, and our abilities.

We are invested in our work. We manage expectations. We support our clients and teammates. We hold ourselves, our teammates, and our clients accountable.
We choose to set a mindful, positive tone that allows everyone to flourish.
We readily adapt to change and encourage innovation because our team and work are transparent and flexible.
