Who we are & what we're about

We are an agile and disciplined team that sweats the details and takes pride in our craftsmanship. We practice an intense, constant collaboration both internally and externally, and utilize modern development methodologies. This allows us to continually refine and iterate on the product, fully realizing our development goals.

Our Story.

Let's start from the beginning.

NewAperio was founded in January 2010 by Logan Leger while a student at Louisiana State University. After a few failed attempts at founding internet startups, Logan used the skills he garnered in building, managing and directing web and mobile products to start a new kind of entrepreneurially-focused development firm.

Our name is unique. Aperio (pronounced uh-pair-e-o) is a Latin word meaning “to uncover”. We believe that's what we help our clients do: to discover their hidden potential through web and mobile apps. The New part emphasizes the ever-changing nature of our industry – by reminding ourselves daily of the constant evolution of the web and mobile platforms, we commit ourselves to constantly challenge and expand what we know.

Today, seven years after our founding, the company focuses on building high-quality applications for web and mobile devices. We've worked with a broad cross-section of clients — from large institutions to scrappy start-ups — in industries far and wide. Our primary experience, however, is in education — particularly institutions of higher learning — and in medical, health, and wellness related fields.

We are an agile but disciplined team that sweats the details and takes pride in our craftsmanship. We practice an intense, constant collaboration both internally and externally, and utilize modern development methodologies. This allows us to continually refine and iterate on the product, fully realizing our development goals.

How we work

We're a small team
with big results

Software development is often a very fluid process. Sometimes, when you dig deeper, things change; scopes grow and shrink as business needs ebb and flow. At times things change completely after customer interviews. We know this — and it's ok.

In fact, we developed our process around the idea of fluidity. Since we work in two-week sprints, we're only committed to the scope for each sprint. When we meet again to review sprints, we can always reprioritize features or remap the rest of our development. We also continually take feedback and incorporate that into our development. Thus, previously developed features can be reworked or adjusted.

How we like to work:

  • In two week sprints of focused work & goals

  • With consistent communication

  • With repeated user testing

  • Alongside stakeholders and client teams

  • In a fluid process to adapt to changes
