Where we came from
Sketch Development Services began in 2015 when founder John Krewson had a realization: That everything he knew about leading software development projects came not from corporate trainings or his MBA, but from his time in entertainment—particularly, from sketch comedy.
Things like the power of self-organized teams of engaged and passionate individuals. The continuous delivery of value. Getting feedback, and giving good feedback in return. John realized that these were the same values behind the agile approach to software development—but seeing them in action, in both environments, gave him a deeper appreciation for how to apply them in the real world.
And so from the beginning, Sketch has been committed to “walking the walk” by not only providing coaching and training for teams, but actually using the very same practices they were recommending to build better software for their development clients.
Since those humble beginnings in the Krewsons’ spare room, the company has (responsibly, thoughtfully) grown to a team of 35 clever and talented people and moved into its current location (in 2017) on Kehrs Mill Rd in Ballwin, MO (just outside of St. Louis).
