People

Founder / Lead Developer

Vinney Cavallo doesn't always gaze off into the distance with his mouth agape.

Before founding exnilio, Vinney worked at a number of digital agencies and web development shops in New York City. He has a strong passion for clean, maintainable, well-tested code that is narrowly focused on solving core problems for the client's business. As benevolent as that goal sounds, some previous employers' business practices often got in the way.
Thus: exnilio was born.

Team

Developers

We work with principled and talented developers in New York, California and throughout the US with specialties throughout the tech stack. Our devs stay on the cutting edge of frameworks and best-practices.

Designers

We partner with industry-leading designers and UX experts to test and arrive at the user experience your customers need and visual designs to propel your brand into the future.

Product and Business

If a project needs it, we'll loop in trusted product and project managers and even business consultants. We can scale our teams to problems of any size.

We'd be delighted to hear from you whether you'd just like to ask some questions or know exactly what you'd like and are ready to get started.

No Surprises /
Build The Right Thing

We think there is a fear among software clients that they're going to sign an arcane contract, pay a bunch of money, have their developer vanish for a month and then get some weird thing nobody wanted delivered at the end.

No, Thanks.

We determine your needs early, stay flexible and in close communication throughout the project (and beyond) and constantly course-correct based on your feedback to make sure that the end result is product you want and your business needs - even if you change your mind along the way. In fact, we hope you change your mind along the way! That means we're finding the most successful path towards the right goal.
