  • I've been impressed by Waverley's expertise and willingness to go the extra mile when we needed it and although the project members are widely distributed, they feel like part of the team.”

  • Waverley is the first positive experience I've had with outsourcing. I've had other experiences that were okay, but this is the first that's positive. The guys on my team are really something special.”

  • Waverley has solved the offshore engineering dilemma.”

    Randy Komisar Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
  • After initial traction on several product lines, it was time to scale our product development efforts. Demand for new features, new platforms and new product ideas had to be balanced against the financial realities of being a Silicon Valley startup. Augmenting our own team with Waverley’s Ukraine-based talent has been key to solving this rapid growth problem. From a Waverley-sourced architect selecting a next-generation HTML5/JS mobile framework to the Waverley team developing firmware for our RF communications modules, we have found a trusted, long-term partner.”

  • Waverley worked as a true partner in creating our first mobile app. Waverley’s designers, developers and project managers, whether located in Italy, Ukraine or California, felt like an extension of our team in Illinois. With this new mobile app, we are seeing results that will position Addus as the innovation leader in our market.”

    Inna Berkovich CIO Addus HomeCare
  • We measure the success of projects based on whether they are on time, on budget and match scope. Waverley’s team has repeatedly exceeded my expectations in all three dimensions.”

    Mark Danzenbaker SVP Sales, Marketing & Product Management GridPoint
  • Waverley Software enabled us to turn high-level ideas into fully-working iOS and Android apps. Waverley truly shines when it comes to UX and UI design for mobile apps; their guidance and suggestions have been invaluable.

What started in 1992 as a one-man act of entrepreneurship in California's Silicon Valley has grown to an exciting international company with teams worldwide. Today, we are staffed with top talent from around the globe who have earned a reputation for delivering industry-leading engineering and UX design, with a refreshingly human and invested approach to our clients' business.

MATT BROWNFounder & CEOSilicon Valley, California
The founder and leader of Waverley, Matt has always been fascinated by the intersection of art and science. It’s that deft balance of left- and right-brained thinking that has made him the voice and vision of our global company, finding value in our varied experiences and viewpoints and using advanced technology to solve problems in innovative ways. Matt is a long-term thinker, focusing on leadership, operational excellence, domain experience and a work environment that advances the human spirit.

Matt graduated magna cum laude from Brown University with a degree in Computer Science. He is the proud and dedicated father of two spirited children, and is driven by advancing our global capability to listen, hear and understand one another. 
Patti is a curious and passionate facilitator who is driven by encouraging well-formed teams of happy people to do excellent work. Patti earned her BS as a young single mother and then her MS in Computer Science. That drive and determination flavored the rest of her career. She joined Matt at Waverley in 1998, and evolved from software engineer to technical client manager to COO.

Part of what makes Patti such a vital operator is her ability to solve both technical and people problems. And she is a staunch customer advocate – a mindset that has permeated the entire company, which ensures our clients always get our best work. Patti’s commitment and passion extend to her family (husband, daughter, step daughters, parents, dog, cats and house plants) and her community in the Bay Area. Caring is at her core.
NIKITA TRETYAKOVChief Software ArchitectSilicon Valley, California
Nikita has an innate knack for seeing the future directions of technology growth. That ability became evident when he wrote his first computer game at the early age of 11. Today, his intuition is essential as we continually and confidently place our clients at the cutting edge of what’s coming.

Nikita has vast hands-on experience in building different types of software from assembler and video card BIOS reprogramming to IoT and hybrid mobile apps. He’s also an expert in designing and building scalable, extensible, low coupled and maintainable systems – and tailoring custom development processes for distributed teams.

Prior to joining Waverley, Nikita contributed to such companies as Medtronic, DigitalRiver, and Yahoo. He holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the State Polytechnic University of Ukraine with a specialty in computer systems for medical diagnosis. Nikita recently moved with his wife and daughter to Silicon Valley to be closer to our clients and all the IT action. In addition to his devotion to programming, he has an adventurous spirit and is a passionate travel photographer.
KATHERINE W. SINGSONChief Strategy OfficerUnited States & Ukraine
Katherine is a creative thinker with a deep understanding and extensive experience in brand marketing, team building, leadership, public relations and design. Katherine started her career in Silicon Valley at an AI-based start-up more than 25 years ago. She eventually went on to work with Steve Jobs at all three of his companies (NeXT, Apple and Pixar) from his “darkest days” to the brightest of futures.

Katherine has since travelled the world in search of adventure – working as both a consultant as well as an employee for start-ups and pro-bono projects all the way up through to acquisitions, turnarounds and multinationals, including a 4-year stint running Xbox communications for Microsoft Australia and New Zealand. She considers herself a modern global citizen who loves a good challenge that crosses cultures and obliterates stereotypical mindsets.
Eugene BogatyriovVP Engineering & Managing DirectorUkraine & Montenegro
Eugene runs Waverley’s two development centers in Ukraine and brings over 15 years of experience in outsourced software development and relationship management to our team. A software engineer at heart, he has a keen understanding of how to build distributed development teams that deliver client-worthy and industry-leading quality.

His approach to the software business is a nimble one, assembling the right team for every job—compact, agile and flexible teams for start-ups, and process-intense, compliant and quality-centered departments for medical device manufacturers. He’s built our Waverley Ukraine team to be more of a living organism, engaging with our clients exactly how they need us to.

Prior to Waverley, Eugene worked at Global Logic, where he designed a scalable organizational structure that tripled revenue and headcount while realizing a 30 percent savings in development costs. Eugene holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science, with honors, from State Polytechnic University of Ukraine. Eugene enjoys traveling the world with his family, being immersed in local cultures and appreciating the beauty of nature.

  • WAVERLEY | Palo Alto, California

    This is our headquarters and where the majority of our C-Suite are based. Leveraging that special alchemy of the San Francisco Bay Area, this is Waverley's original home. The company name was taken from our founder's first address on Waverley Street in Palo Alto more than 20 years ago. Today it's ground zero for the technology explosion that is Silicon Valley – stretching all the way down to the chipmakers of San Jose and up the peninsula to the unicorns of San Francisco.
