Entrepreneur and writer passionate about technology

To help you find the right partner for the job, I’ve gathered an overview of the top web development companies for 2021 based on an in-depth analysis of their achievements, company growth, abilities, client reviews, rankings on reputable sources, and the companies’ worldwide digital impact.

A recent PwC report shows 1 in 3 customers leave a brand they love because of poor UX after their first bad impression. If you want your products to sell, you need to make sure your website or web application provides a better experience than the competition.

The question is: how do you find the right web developer in this highly populated and complex market? Fortunately, I’ve come up with a comprehensive approach that takes in all the important factors and cuts off the wheat from the chaff. I’d like to share it with you along with the list of the current top web development companies.

How do you choose the top web development company?

I came up with the following formula that prioritizes companies with a high growth rate and longer lifespan:

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

Where:

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

The company’s growth rate was taken from LinkedIn Insights - a feature available only to premium subscribers. I’ve also managed to pinpoint the developers’ location for each company to show where the technical team is actually located. It could be handy if you are choosing between nearshore and offshore partner.

Relying on this formula as a ranking guideline, I’ve also paid close attention to these important qualities:

  • The variety and complexity of successful projects in the company’s portfolio show if it has enough experience in web development across different domains, platforms, and technologies.
  • Team size and diversity determine whether a company will be capable of providing qualified staff and match the required delivery speeds, allowing for high flexibility in implementation.
  • Client testimonials and references reveal the web development company’s trustworthiness and tell how well it stands in terms of end-product quality and performance.
  • Efficient communication often plays a key role, so I’ve tried to analyze how well the company handles client requests, manages communication between teams, and whether it fulfills the promises made before the start of development.

I’ve compiled all the information I’ve gathered into a short web development company profile which you can see for every team in the ranking below. 

I hope my ranking will help you find the best team out there and create a long-lasting partnership for your upcoming projects. Let’s jump straight into the action and have a look at the top web development companies globally in 2021.

Ask them specific questions on how they can use their expertise to bring out the best in your solution and figure out how dedicated they are to your success.

Also, try to find out more about the team’s general philosophy. After all, connecting with your business partners on a personal level is just as important as communicating the project’s ideas, goals, and objectives.

I hope you will find a web development company you can trust and wish you good luck on successful project delivery.
