who we are
Founded in 2001, edgeofmyseat.com is a boutique web development company run by industry experts Rachel Andrew and Drew McLellan. Our main focus is developing and supporting our Content Management System product, Perch. We are also available for a small amount of consultancy each year for a select few clients.
Rachel’s personal website and writing portfolio can be found at rachelandrew.co.uk
Drew earned his stripes leading technical teams in a number of creative agencies. Drew’s experience of developing for the web spans more than 15 years, working on projects for the likes of Nissan, Goodyear Dunlop, Siemens/Bosch, Cadburys, BP, ICI Dulux and Virgin.net as well as developing a number of innovative independent software products. Before joining edgeofmyseat.com, Drew worked in Search Innovation at Yahoo!.
As a company we spent many years in the client services business, helping design agencies with their web development requirements. The main focus of our business is now in creating outstanding software to help the same companies improve their offering without needing to contract outside help.
Our first product is the mini-CMS Perch, developed to fill a gap in the market for a self-hosted, simple to install and use Content Management System.
Launched in May 2009 Perch has become a market leader in the small CMS space and we continue to develop and improve the product with frequent releases. To find out more visit the Perch website.
At the current time we take on only a very small amount of work for clients. The work we do take on is that where we feel our experience can be best used.
