About Us

Ethode was founded by developers that share a passion for quality development. We pride ourselves on customer service, dedication to excellence, and a culture that focuses on innovation and creative problem solving.

Our Mission

We want to use our innovation and creativity to help make the world a more joyous place to live.

Our Vision

We envision a world where technology improves the quality of life in the world. We are level 5 thinkers that want to build apps to help people and companies achieve great things. We want to intuitively solve real problems by creating the simplest, high-quality thing possible. We feel that simplicity, focus, and communication are the keys to executing successfully in a highly-evolving market. At the end of the day, our most valuable metric is how happy our customers are when they use our creations.

Our History

Ethode (LLC) was formerly Holmes-Media. Holmes-Media started out as a small firm in Huron County, Ohio in 2003 specializing in web design. Since then, the company has grown to become a full-cycle web development company working with enterprise customers all across Ohio and the US. Our team of developers have varied backgrounds, truly enjoy technology, and have a passion for building the right thing the right way. Our culture is a kaizen-based culture, meaning we focus on continual improvement every day by staying lean and agile. Our unique size allows us to take on the larger projects that one-person shops and consultants can't take care of, while being small enough to provide personalized attention to your unique needs.

Made In The USA

The Ethode team is proudly located in the United States. Our quality software is made in-house by American designers and developers. When you work with us, you will not need to jump through hoops to schedule meetings in weird time zones. When you speak with our team, you are guaranteed to speak with an English-speaking professional that understands both sides of business and technology.
