Plan A was founded by software entrepreneurs who built and sold several multimillion-dollar companies. After hiring several not-so-great outsourcing companies, they decided to launch the software engineering company that they always yearned for, but could never find.
Our award-winning team is comprised of backend and frontend software engineers, technology researchers, UX experts, inventors, graphic artists, former CIOs and CTOs, project managers, futurists, and more. We provide smart, reliable tech talent at great prices, and we augment that with honest advice from seasoned experts.
The result? Today, the solutions we’ve created for our clients are used by millions of people around the world.

He repeatedly designed fast, reliable, massively scalable architectures that earned him increasingly senior engineering roles, including serving as SVP of Engineering at multibillion-dollar companies.
Eventually, Slav co-founded a few startups, including OfferCraft and MacroView Labs, where he was Chief Technology Officer and Chief Software Architect — each of these software companies were acquired in 8-figure deals. During this time, Slav gained deep, hands-on experience building up and running diverse teams of engineers around the world.
