The new year has officially begun. Now we can look back and decide who made it into the top Ruby on Rails companies for 2022.

You’re planning to start developing a new product this year. But you need a developer to help you do that. Let’s go out on a limb here and guess you’d like to work with someone with a reputation that can be proven. And if no one in your network can refer to such a person or company, you have to look toward independent sources.

One such independent source is Clutch, an online catalog for digital service companies. Those companies create their profiles on the platform and request reviews from their clients. An independent interviewer from Clutch calls those clients, gathers their feedback and publishes it as a review on the company’s profile.

A developer’s client can publish a review themselves. If they have completed verification, the review is accompanied by the tag “Verified” and is considered by the system as a rating factor for that developer.

As the catalog user, you can filter companies by several parameters. We believe the most informative parameter is review ratings. When you apply it, companies with the best ratio of the number of reviews and the overall rating lead the list.

We took a look at this year’s best Ruby on Rails companies on Clutch and compared them to the previous year. This article sums it all up.

Wolfpack Digital

A pack of Transylvanian wolves, Wolfpack Digital has rocketed to the top from sixth place in 2020. What took them there are the additional four positive reviews.
Throughout the year, the Romanian developer has grown from over 50 to more than 75 people, including Ruby on Rails experts, designers and strategists. The number of apps they’ve built has also risen from over 50 to north of 60 now.
What has remained unchanged is their price tier: the developer is still offering services at an hourly rate one step above that typical of their Eastern European counterparts on Clutch.

Rubyroid Labs

In 2021, we were able to add six new verified reviews to our Clutch profile. That’s one fewer than what the leader has racked up, so you can say we found ourselves one review away from the top.
In addition to new reviews, Rubyroid Labs has grown by 10 people last year. Today, our talent pool comprises more than 55 programmers, testers and project managers. Among our developers are experts in Ruby on Rails, ReactJS, VueJS and React Native.
We’ve also built several new products, including an online beauty store, a food delivery app and an eCommerce website for selling industrial equipment.

Rubyroid Labs provides startup teams for ventures supported by accelerators like YCombinator and Seedcamp, and works with corporations like Toyota, Volvo and Mastercard.

We place emphasis on building and maintaining a community, so we always can make quick hires when our in-house resources won’t suffice. To do that, Rubyroid Labs has hosted numerous events like hackathons and conferences since 2013.

Our rates start at $30 per hour. These rates are somewhere between the second- and third-lowest in the catalog, which is common for companies based in Belarus.

We believe that our expertise and comfortable pricing make us one of the top Ruby on Rails companies for 2022. So, if you don’t feel like sifting through various sources and lists, drop us a line and let’s get going.

RoleModel Software

RoleModel Software made it to the top-three in 2021 from fourth place in 2020. The company’s profile now features five more reviews, while the overall rating of 5.0 hasn’t moved down. And that’s pretty much all the changes.

According to Clutch, RoleModel Software is one of the top-rated Ruby on Rails development companies in the USA. It focuses on helping small and midsize businesses go from a product idea to a concept and from a concept to software.

This North Carolina–based developer will charge you an hourly rate common for US providers on Clutch.

eEngine Software House

This Polish developer is a newcomer to the top 10 Ruby on Rails companies, at least for the last couple of years.

eEngine Software House isn’t a new business, though: it was founded in 2008. It’s 13 years ago, which is more than “almost a decade” — a period specified in the company description. This means they could’ve been on Clutch for quite some time without updating their information.

You will pay a bit more than the average Eastern European hourly rate if you decide to work with eEngine Software House.

datarockets

datarockets lost two positions in 2021. However, they didn’t twiddle their thumbs and racked up two more verified reviews since we looked at their profile last. Back then, datarockets claimed they had built more than 30 products, a figure that has now exceeded 35.

Headquartered in Toronto, datarockets offshore jobs to Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Overall, their website says they have developers across 11 countries and organize meetups and conferences in Minsk, Belarus.

The geography explains why datarockets’ rates are much lower than what other Canadian companies offer on Clutch.

Square Mill Labs

A small American studio, Square Mill Labs wasn’t on this list in 2020. Unlike most other contestants, it focuses exclusively on building web applications ranging from regular websites to custom big data applications. The only office is in Rockland, Maine, and its hourly rate is on par with other USA-based Ruby on Rails developers in the catalog.

Square Mill Labs outlines three industries of expertise for itself: business services, medical and real estate. Among its clients, you can find Fortune 500 companies, political campaigners, small startups, VC companies and healthcare organizations. Some of the well-known brands include ESPN, LinkedIn and former Vice President Al Gore.

DockYard

DockYard is another developer who’s lost two positions since 2020. They haven’t added any new reviews over the year or changed profile information.

The clientele of the Massachusetts-based company includes Netflix, Apple, Nasdaq and some other big names. You qualify as DockYard’s client if you’re a midsize business or an enterprise comfortable with typical North American hourly rates.

MojoTech

In 2021, MojoTech added one review — and lost one position. “A leader in web, mobile and IoT development,” as the developer positions themselves, they have four offices: in California, Colorado, New York and Rhode Island.

MojoTech has built over 100 products since its foundation in 2008. Its clients come from a wide range of industries, such as healthcare, finance and eCommerce. Among them, you may find household names like Dow Jones, Under Armour, Shell and Schneider Electric.

If hiring MojoTech sounds like a great option, be prepared to pay typical US rates.

ByteLion

A Maryland-based developer, ByteLion lost one position in 2021. At the same time, it got two more reviews, both exceptionally positive.
ByteLion calls itself a full-service company. It has delivered services to clients from Fortune 100 and startups alike, focusing on healthcare and eCommerce. Since the company’s founding in 2011, it has worked with over 100 businesses.
If you’re looking for a US-based developer at an hourly rate a bit lower than what most offer, ByteLion could be the right match.

RailsCarma

The last developer who made it into the top 10 in 2021 is RailsCarma.

This Indian company is a newcomer to the list and has just one review. If you take a closer look, you’ll realize it’s from a representative of a company whose name sounds very similar to the developer’s name. It also operates in the same sector: software development.

We also noticed RailsCarma positions itself as a firm based in New York, while all open positions on its site are for Bangalore, India. The company description on Clutch says it has “presence in the United States & Middle East” and “extended team at Bangalore, India.”

Given the development rate below $25 per hour, one may assume RailsCarma’s relationship with Bangalore is more than just having a team extension there. Lesson here? Always check a developer’s background, even if you’ve found them in a trusted source.

Summary of Best Ruby on Rails Companies for 2022 acc. to Clutch

top ruby on rails companies

Ready to Tap the Top Ruby on Rails Experts?

View this list as a starting point. Your options go beyond those ten.

You can create an Excel sheet, browse on Clutch or Google, note your findings down and mull them over.

There are several things to look at as you weigh your options:

Portfolio. Look for projects similar to yours in the developer’s portfolio and client testimonials. The best Ruby on Rails developers have proven track records.

Technology focus. A developer that has been using the same technology for years must have honed relevant skills. If that is your target technology, even better.

Pricing. The cheapest option is rarely the best, while the most expensive one may not live up to your expectations. Read more about Ruby on Rails developer rates.

Language. When you offshore tasks, it is essential that your developer speaks common language with your team. Communication is king in IT projects.

Time zone. Time difference could be a challenge when offshoring development. Make sure that the developer has experience adjusting to that difference.

Certifications and memberships. Official accreditation may seem a thing of the past, but it still indicates how much effort the developer dedicates to proving its skills.

Business processes. Ask the developer to tell you about how they work. A top Ruby on Rails development company will paint a concrete picture in response.

  1. Thank you for sharing! I think they will stay top ruby on rails companies in 2022.

  2. I checked RoR developer rates in the USA, and outsourcing developers from Eastern Europe is much more profitable.

    • Daria Stolyar Reply

      You are right. The price is lower, the quality is the same or even better.

    • Daria Stolyar Reply

      We advise outsourcing from Eastern Europe – Belarus, Ukraine, Poland, Romania. We recommend looking at software development companies from Belarus, and here are at least 6 reasons for it. https://rubyroidlabs.com/blog/2021/04/6-reasons-for-outsourcing-software-development-to-belarus/

  3. There are more Ruby on Rails companies, and they are experienced than the ones you listed.

    • Daria Stolyar Reply

      Yes, there are more RoR companies but this rating includes the best companies based on Clutch rating. Clutch is the online developer catalog that includes verified reviews from customers.
