thinkers,

& creative technologists

 

Solving the world’s wicked—and tame—problems… one client at a time.

Our Journey & Quest

 

Thirteen Years Ago

 

webkeyz pioneered the field of User Experience Design in digital products, in a region where no one had
even heard of the term, and consequently became a market leader in that realm.

 

Today

 

webkeyz is seeing where the world is heading, how markets are shifting, and we’re taking up that helm again,
adding to our activities the pioneering of innovation and service design, acting as a change agent,
disrupting the market, and transforming organizations.

Our Reach

Conducting business from offices in San Francisco, USA and
Cairo, Egypt, we have executed more than 255 projects for
clients across the globe; from Singapore to California.

Our Motto

We don’t settle for the ordinary, and neither should you. Working at webkeyz is about exceeding your limits. The standards we shoot for are attainable goals, not the dreams of stargazers.

Nobody likes a snob. Share your knowledge. No one is too experienced to learn. Never be afraid to make mistakes. Most importantly, have a sense of humor and forego ego. Life’s too short; who has the time for drama?

We’re all different yet we share the eagerness to create meaningful experiences. We spend most of our days together, so getting along nicely is par for the course. We like people who care, who express opinions, and who can see the big picture.

Our Credo

The values against which we measure ourselves and our actions. Our ‘web-esprit’ de corps.

Our Philosophy

We operate according to these core tenets:

Add Value or No Deal

Here’s the thing: we don’t enter any business relationship unless we know we’re adding value. We want to bring value to the table, no matter how big or small the project is. If we can’t, then we courteously decline.

The Butterfly Effect

We’re in the business of impacting people’s lives. We adopt a holistic approach regarding our work’s impact on the business. Our work extends from one end of an organization and propagates to affect people throughout.

Beyond Business

Viewing our partnerships as strict vendor-client relationships limits the value of what we offer. We strive to create impact beyond the business transaction, maximizing value and unleashing unimaginable potential.

Our People

The impact we create is only possible because of our people.
