How we got started.
AWD was founded in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by USMC veteran Gabriel Albanes. Back in 2015, Gabe was fired up that American businesses were largely outsourcing their technology, code, and even sensitive data to other countries. Even local places with business owners who sought to keep the local dollar local. He heard it over and over:
“I can’t find local help.”
He started to build his network of the best programmers he could find and started taking on projects to serve local businesses. Projects ranged from ensuring police officers had immediate access to confidential data in the field, developing a revolutionary app to manage customers, and helping small businesses stand up to the international giants with an outstanding website.
Now, we’re officially launched as American Web Devs under his leadership and are expanding throughout the United States.
