THE GUILD OF FEATURISTS

About Us

Featurist was a software development consultancy that specialized in web applications founded in 2011 in London, UK and ceased trading in 2023. The Guild of Featurists aims to carry on the legacy of Featurist and what we learned together over 12 years, as we move on to other projects, teams and challenges.

We have a passion for creating high-quality software that delights users and meets business needs.

Testimonials

The Travel Corporation

TTC has a wide and rich set of experiences to distribute to its travel agency partners and wants to offer them all the flexibility available to its own consultants and guests. To achieve this, Featurist has worked extensively with our internal sales experts and with key partners to build an elaborate and yet flexible set of services to support the searching, pricing, and booking of experiences, flights, and value add across six of TTC’s world-leading travel brands.

Technologies We Use

  • Node.js: We love Node.js for its excellent performance and flexibility. Having JavaScript on the frontend and backend simplifies everything.
  • Ruby on Rails: We're always delighted at how productive we are with Ruby on Rails. It's beautiful, there are no surprises and it's still a huge player on the web.
  • Hosting: For hosting our applications, we're fans of Heroku for its simplicity and Kubernetes for its flexibility and reliability.
  • Frontend: We've enjoyed the transformations on the frontend with React, ReactNative, and the wonderful community.
  • Automated Testing: A cornerstone of our ability to release new features reliably and frequently.
  • AI / Machine Learning: We're amazed at how AI is helping us solve previously impossible problems.
