Some of our amazing clients we are proud of:

Ivan was a pleasure to work with. I had a dream that was Keymarket.co.nz, and his skills allowed me to bring it to life. We worked together from my dense business plan and rudimentary functionality requirements to create a platform that has thousands of registered users and hopefully strong sustainable future growth. Throughout this project I have been working on a number of other (non-tech) projects to help fund it - Ivan was patient and understanding of my time constraints, and I even became comfortable with him making some major development decisions on my behalf. I would recommend Ivan and the team at Centaurea to anyone looking for a quality and reliable developer/development team
Oscar Rodwell, CEO, Founder at Keymarket.co.nz

Shay Nir, Co-founder at Coinmaster
Centaurea has been a pleasure to work with. They are very technically competent and a thorough communicators. They understands the pressures and constraints of real world deadlines and a client-facing product. Their ability to determine several methods of achieving functionality and the corresponding levels of technical debt/time/energy/cost was a great value-add. Contract Centaurea with the utmost confidence and you won't be disappointed!
