Development Seed is a creative strategy and engineering team that helps empower citizens and organizations with tools and data to solve complex issues and make better decisions. We are an integrated team of strategists, designers, and developers that work to solve the challenging development and governance issues with real solutions.
We are a small team that has implemented some of the largest open data projects in international development. We work together with our partners to solve complex communications challenges using data visualizations, interactive web content, and custom applications. Our work runs the spectrum of identifying key problems, strategizing opportunities, building solutions, and designing communications. At our core, we are engineers building incredibly fast and flexible open source tools that provide the foundation for our solutions. This approach allows us to tackle large scale projects in record time, whether that’s taking the World Bank from concept to site launch with data.worldbank.org, helping Internews and NAI expose patterns of violence against journalists on the ground in Afghanistan, or building open.undp.org, the United Nations Development Programme's flagship project portal.
