Web development specialists with heart and hands

Web development specialists with heart and hands

Founded in 2012. De Voorhoede is not a full service agency, but a true web development club. We work on projects that make an impact on the world. Big or small. Making the most out of the possibilities of the web with the most innovative tools & techniques. Programming from our offices in Amsterdam and Delft, or just from home. We prefer not to limit ourselves with all kinds of rules and procedures. Freedom, trust and responsibility will lead to the best results. We're convinced about that.

De Voorhoede, for good

It is our mission to develop user-friendly and responsible products for the web. We invest in our team and share our knowledge and expertise with the world. Every year we donate at least 2% of our net profit to a good cause. We do this through pro bono work, financial donations, donations in kind and volunteer work for carefully selected organizations. In this way we actively contribute to our mission to make a positive change in the world.

3 for good focus areas

  • 1. Work: Responsible Production & Consumption

    Every day we are committed to an accessible web for everyone. We advocate respectful tracking and proactively recommend this to our customers. In addition, we actively contribute to open source development by sharing our own expertise and making financial donations to other open source projects.

  • 2. People: Talent Development & Investment

    We contribute to the development of our employees by offering them opportunities to learn, grow and excel. Our internal code classes and code talks are part of that. Everybody also gets an annual study budget of €1500. We share our knowledge and expertise with the community by posting helpful and inspirational blogs and videos. A few times a year we organise meetups that are open to everyone.

  • 3. Planet: Green Foundation

    Unfortunately, we cannot say that we are 100% circular. We do our best to reduce our footprint where possible and fully compensate for our emissions. In the workplace we are actively involved in minimising waste and CO2. We buy as little new stuff as possible. When we purchase things, we do so through a careful selection of more sustainable suppliers. We encourage our employees to travel as little as possible for work and to use public transport or bicycles for commuting.
