I’ve compiled this list of Top Software Development Companies 2021 based on an in-depth analysis of the companies’ websites, their achievements, rankings on reputable sources, and their worldwide footprint. I hope this article will help you find the right software development company.

For ranking the top software development companies on the list, I used the following formula that prioritizes companies with high growth and years on the market:

A*2+B*2+C*1+(2021-Y)*0.05

Where:

  • A = company growth rate* for 6-month period
  • B = company growth rate* for 12-month period
  • C = company growth rate* for 2-year period
  • Y = year founded

* Taken from LinkedIn Insights — a premium feature of LinkedIn, available to paid subscribers only.

In my ranking of the top custom software development companies below I provide the following information about each company:

  • Company description, with the key facts about the company;
  • Company’s website;
  • Services provided;
  • Year founded;
  • Office locations;
  • Company size (the number of employees according to each company’s LinkedIn page);
  • Minimum project size;
  • Average hourly rate;
  • Major clients;
  • Company growth rate (employee growth rate for the last 6 months, 12 months, and 2 years;
  • Developed projects.

Relying on this ranking as a guideline in your search for the right software development company, you should pay attention to these qualities as well:

  • The variety and complexity of successful projects in the company’s portfolio let you assess whether the company is experienced in the domain/technology.
  • In-depth expertise in the tasks that you would like to outsource.
  • Years in business. The more mature the software development company, the lower the risk it can go bankrupt.
  • Client testimonials and references. Positive reviews from clients confirm the software development company’s expertise and indicate its trustworthiness.
  • Communication. Because efficient communication is crucial for project success, make sure the software company’s developers have good English, cultural compatibility with your internal staff, and a fast Internet connection.

Now let’s have a look at the 2021 top fast-growing software development companies globally. I hope my ranking will help you make an informed decision about the best software development partner for your next project.
