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, Windows Phone and BlackBerry 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 rise of mobile represents a major shift from a web-centered world, and demands new products with different strategies. Qubop's mission is to provide these products and strategies to our enterprise clients.

Our core team has been working together for over 10 years, from the earliest days of mobile applications, and also has extensive experience with web development, game development, user interface and product design.

Qubop is based in San Francisco, California, and our team includes mobile engineers, graphic design talent, UX/UI experts, and project management. Our clients can be found in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
