About Envy Forge

Let's work together to get the right products to market and grow, faster!

What we're about

We’re a group of like-minded individuals brought together by a shared set of values. We are idealistic and opinionated, but still empathetic and pragmatic. We’re teachers, creatives, engineers and exceptional professionals. We’re tinkerers, proud parents, coaches, Star Wars “fans” and beer drinkers. We are passionate about what we do and always present for what’s in front of us.

Our business is about more than just product development, value creation and the growth potential. It’s about building exceptional experiences and developing great relationships along the way.

More than anything, we love building great products that improve people’s everyday lives. We are more than a tech company — we’re a culture company — and we've shaped our practices around strong values acquired through years of experience. We hold each other accountable, we’re honest and we respect the roles and expertise that each team member brings to the table.

Our ironclad commitment is to understanding your business challenges, goals, and objectives through empathy and active listening so that, together, we can build exceptional experiences. If you are building a team, a product, or rationalizing a system or business process and want to engage Envy Forge to consult for your business or technology leadership teams, please reach out. We’re eager to meet you and bring you into our exciting world.

How We Do It

Our founder, Matt, is known for a particular phrase — an approach:

Listen. Disrupt. Learn.

- Matt Ortiz

It is a nod to his human-centered, agile and iterative perspective on complex problem-solving. But it could be mistaken as stating that we are, among other things, disruptive. This is its true meaning:

Refers to the approach of truly listening and empathizing with users – a human-centered perspective. We value customer input and feedback as early as possible over big up-front design.

Refers to the fact that if you engage us, then we are by definition working on disruptive change. We are experts in easing the pain of complex, disruptive-change. Customers trust us to get them home safely, to build great experiences, and to have a great time while we’re at it.

At first, it was “Adjust.”. However, he felt that was not the right approach. “Adjust.” assumes that we must continuously change (perhaps for its own sake), which is not always the case. So we must “Learn.” from our work, continuously, testing our assumptions and staying informed by customer desire and feedback. Then, if we determine a need, we can plan and adapt.
