The next generation of software engineering productivity

rwx researches and develops highly productive software architecture for building large scale business applications.

What We Do

We started rwx to produce dramatic improvements to software engineering productivity. Large-scale software projects all become encumbered by the same challenges, and existing solutions tend to create as many problems as they solve. We’re researching and developing a new approach.


Progress comes from standing on the shoulders of giants, which is why we spend as much time reading white papers as we do writing code.


We publish our findings and openly share the results of our research with the broader software engineering community.


We put theoretical concepts and learnings into practice by applying them to the software tools we’re building.

Our Team

We’re well-funded, and we’ll be building a small engineering team this year. If you have expertise in this area and are interested in joining us, please reach out to us at

  • Dan Manges


    I was formerly the CTO of Root, which went public in 2020, and of Braintree, which was acquired by PayPal in 2013. I’ve been fortunate to spend the majority of my career working with exceptionally talented people to build companies from scratch. Although I mostly spend time with my kids outside of work, I managed to run my first marathon in 2021.

    Prior to starting rwx, I was a Principal Engineer at Huckleberry and a Senior Engineering Manager at Root. In my free time, I like hanging out with my wife, son, and dog, writing poetry, and watching sports.
