We are Gearbox

After dozens of collective years working behind the scenes at various web agencies, we knew we wanted to change the client-dev relationship. And so, Gearbox was born.


  • We’re good listeners

    We happen to think the key to a long-term partnership is communication. We’re pretty good listeners and pride ourselves on finding made-to-measure solutions for your biggest tech difficulties.

  • We build for speed

    If your site is slow, you’ve just lost a customer to a competitor. That’s where we step in. We’re experienced in building performance websites that load faster, rank higher and convert more customers.

  • We won’t leave you behind

    Understanding tech isn’t reserved for a select few. We’ll walk you through all-things-dev, sharing our knowledge in a language you speak, so you actually understand how everything works.

Gearbox has been A-grade professional. More than professional, it's an utter pleasure to work with them. The process was streamlined, and easy, and then we still received exactly what we asked for, perfectly and on time and it worked. I don't think we found even a single bug. Reader, this doesn't happen elsewhere. But please don't hire them so that I always can when I need them.

It's difficult to find web developers with true integrity and a strong work ethic, so it has been a huge asset to have Gearbox on the team. Everything they have produced has been on budget, on time, top quality and exceeded expectations.

I can't say enough about the Gearbox team. If your website would benefit from regular maintenance, frequent updates, and overall monitoring of site performance that’s consistent with Google standards and best practices, please give Gearbox a call. You won't be disappointed.

Our Leadership

Coming from agencies across Canada, we’ve all witnessed the classic downfalls of your traditional agency model. We’d like to change that. We focus on building partnerships before websites—but when we do build a site, it’s to the latest, highest performance standards.

We can’t do what we do without collaboration—both from you and our preferred partners, from designers to writers. These are the folks we’ll refer you to in person, introduce you to in Google Hangouts, and down a beer with on Fridays. They’re solid-gold humans and creatives, and we think you’ll like them, too.


Crafting solutions is our bread and butter. Whether it’s a few tweaks or an overhaul, we’re in this together, and we’ll help you get there.


We’ll meet you where you’re at with a customized list of recommendations to optimize your site for performance.


Depending on your needs, we can integrate custom solutions into your existing site that will kick it into overdrive.


If you need a new build, we’ll partner with you to develop the performance site of your dreams from the ground up.

Speed is for websites, not for relationships

We take our client relationships seriously because we’re in this for the long haul. Email or call us to start the conversation and see if we’re the developers for you.
