Hello and welcome to Stripe the Web!

We are a modestly sized team based in Wellington that strive to build fantastic, functional websites that look great and are optimised for various devices - desktops, smartphones, and everything in between.

We utilise the open source framework SilverStripe to ensure our websites are reliable, secure, and easy to maintain by clients upon completion. Using SilverStripe also means the focus of projects can be on functionality and user experience, instead of starting from scratch for each project.

Our work ranges from functional and visual upgrades for your website, to full-on redesigns where your site is created using the SilverStripe framework.

Give us a call, send an email, or pop in - we would love to meet you and discuss your project.

Your website, made simple with SilverStripe

By building your website on the SilverStripe framework, less time is spent coding the site from scratch so we can make it look and function exactly how you want it to, while staying within your project’s budget. The SilverStripe Content Management System (CMS) makes managing content easy and even allows you to preview pages before they are published.
Utilising SilverStripe also ensures that your site can easily be upgraded to newer versions, strengthening security and adding functionality and features not currently achievable.

Responsive: A unified user experience

Your website is built responsive, meaning its layout automatically adapts to devices like smartphones and tablets that use different screen resolutions, for the best user experience of your website anytime, anywhere.

Ready for the Common Web Platform (CWP)

As SilverStripe developers, Stripe the Web has experience building websites for New Zealand Government agencies utilising the Common Web Platform (CWP), which encourages agencies to feature standardised content management and user experiences on their websites.Precise project management and coordination allows us to ensure that your CWP project is finished on time, and within budget.

Our Process



consultation

Consultation

Each project starts with a consultation. Here we identify your project's requirements and devise a strategy to accomplish it within its allocated timeframe and budget.

 

projectmanagement

Project Management

The project is planned out from start to finish, with each task individually identified so it is completed in the most time and resource-efficient way.

 

design

Design

Our designer works with you to ensure your site will look and function the way you want it to. Clients sometimes provide their own website designs but these often require additional page types or responsive designs to be completed.

 

developers

Development

Our amazing developers are confident in a range of coding languages, including HTML, CSS, PHP, Javascript, and mySQL. Once designs are finalised they get to work with creating your website using the SilverStripe framework and test your website on a range of devices, ensuring compatibility while ironing out as many bugs as we can along the way.

 

deployment

Deployment

Once adequate testing has been completed, the site is deployed and is live to the public. Congratulations!

 

 support

Support

The SilverStripe CMS is simple to use, but we make sure you are comfortable with it by providing adequate training and documentation. We also offer specialised follow-up support at discounted rates in the form of Block Support which can also be used for website upgrades and extra functionality.

 

Meet The Team

Meet the Stripe the Web team: A friendly, talented bunch of people who enjoy a good laugh but usually have their heads down hard-at-work. Click our portraits for a description! 

Matt Gunn

C.E.O.

When he isn't taking a call, in a meeting, on a business trip, paying bills, budgeting company resources, or getting us new projects, you'll find Matt...y'know what? We'll just leave Matt alone to do his thing.

Helen Frost

Project Manager

Helen's love of project management can only be rivalled by that of junk food, robots and dinosaurs. Oh and candy, which is not classified as junk food, apparently.

Darren Inwood

Lead Developer

Besides holding the record of most in-office package deliveries, Darren seems to be the only one in the office with his head screwed on.

Dylan Sweetensen

Developer

Dylan is your go-to guy if you want something done - yesterday. They say he keeps a spare set of headphones inside his beard, along with another, slightly smaller, beard.

Tim Kung

Developer

When he isn't developing, he's communicating with clients. When he isn't doing either of those, he's probably doing backflips or something. He is also the only staff member to consistently wear a hat.

Sam Costigan

Developer

Sam is both a front-end mastermind and popular with older ladies. Sam is such a nice guy. Who's the nicest guy in the office? Sam is.

Mark Coates

Designer & Support

Mark wants to make anything and everything as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Sam however just thinks he has an unhealthy obsession with icons.

Nitish Prakash

Developer

Having grown up in the USA, Nitish has a well-established palette of delicious fast food. Thrown into the deep end, Nitish hasn't shown any signs of going mad. Yet.

David Wang

Accounts

David is the newest addition to the Stripe the Web team, in charge of any non-code related numbers. We'll let you know how he gets on!
