Our Story

Once upon a time, a group of colleagues working together in Dublin (go Ireland!) were forever dreaming up ideas for new software products. But it was the same old record on repeat: fire out the ideas, bash them around a bit, talk about the 'how' and the 'why', scribble a diagram on a piece of paper, and - inexorably - forget about it.

Then one day we ran out of paper (and beermats!). We decided enough was enough...

With a "let's give this a go" determination, we formed a small but experienced team we nicknamed the Crazy Horse Gang. Then we told a few people... it seemed to strike a chord.

Everyone, it seemed, had technology idea. Friends, friends of friends, loose acquaintances, even the guy who owns the local coffee shop. But few, if any, had the experience of turning ideas into products.

The Product Works was born

The Product Works is a collective of people with a common passion: bringing software products to life.
— Conor Wogan, Founder

Our Ethos

We believe the best products are delivered by:

  • Putting the end-user at the focal point of product development
  • Accepting that requirements cannot be fully known or defined upfront, that intentions will evolve and change
  • Talking continuously with the domain experts
  • Delivering frequently
  •  Following agile development principles
  • Being nice to people - you get so much more done!

We believe partnership is the best approach to product success. That ensures that everyone involved understands the business requirements, is clear on the business strategy and are better placed to deliver software that meets the business goals.

The right tools for the right job at the right time.
— Máté Marjai, Founder
