About the client

Open Social is a team of experts who build bespoke online community platforms. By providing an open-source platform, they help innovative companies and nonprofits connect with their members, customers, and employees and other (external) stakeholders. 

That makes it possible for organizations to share knowledge, improve internal communication, drive new innovations, and organize online and offline events.

The process

Lemberg and Open Social have a long-standing partnership. We’ve been working together ever since they were a digital agency GoalGorilla. 

At present, our dedicated team helps Open Social build and maintain their platform, as well as various projects based on it. 

The current dedicated team has grown and evolved together with the client’s needs. While we started by providing the client with back-end developers only, our dedicated team now also includes a front-end developer and a quality assurance specialist. 

Together with Open Social, we have developed many bespoke community platforms. Some examples are GlobalDevHub, an online platform for the UN Development Programme, and Policy Kitchen, an ideation platform for foreign policy discussions in Switzerland.

How we work

In the years of collaboration with Lemberg on Open Social, they internalized the product focus approach. For us — not working on one-off projects — that's extremely valuable. They are a great partner, not only guaranteeing flexibility and scalability but also delivering quality features for our product that fit in our overall concept and product strategy.
