The Qubop Story

Originally founded in 2002 as a digital agency, Qubop offers mobile product design, platform consulting and application development for the iOS, Android, and wearable platforms.

We are currently located in the SOMA district of San Francisco, near the Embarcadero and Bay Bridge, and just a short walk from the Ferry Building.

The ongoing rise of mobile represents a major shift within our digitally connected world, and calls for new products with different strategies. Qubop's goal is to provide these products and strategies to our enterprise clients, based in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Our People

Qubop has robust in-house development teams for both iOS and Android. These development teams includes mobile engineers, graphic design talent, UX/UI experts, and project management. We have successfully designed and shipped dozens of mobile apps across all modern platforms, providing end-to-end solutions from the earliest discovery phases to full application programming and ongoing maintenance.
