DevelopmentNow Chicago

Hello, Chicago!

We opened an office in Chicago, a year later the Cubs won a World Series. We’re not saying there’s a connection there… but we’re not saying there isn’t one. The Pacific Northwest has been our home for the last ten years. Now, we’re going back to where it all started for our CEO Ben Strackany.

We’re excited to continue our rapid growth in the digital space and reconnect with our Chicago roots. We see a Chicagoland branch of DevelopmentNow as a strategic opportunity to be part of the innovative, hard-working digital and startup community there, while collaborating with the best and brightest to deliver high-impact technology solutions to partners in the Midwest.
