We're all about software engineering productivity

rwx develops products to improve the developer experience of building large scale business applications

Interested in this problem space?We're hiring.

What We Do

We started rwx to produce dramatic improvements to software engineering productivity. Large-scale software projects all become encumbered by similar challenges. We're building products to help engineers stay focused on their core products rather than technical challenges.


We're well-versed in the state of the art in terms of tooling and architecture. We keep an eye on interesting developments and trends.


Although we're currently focused on our early stage product development, we'll be publishing our research findings and best practices.


We're not only studying this space in theory. We're hands-on engineers who understand the intricacies of building software.

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 check out our open positions.

  • 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.

  • Tommy Graves

    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.

  • Ayaz Hafiz

    Prior to joining rwx, I studied mathematics and worked in a variety of software development roles. I enjoy rock climbing, hiking, skiing, and new submissions on arXiv.

  • Kyle Thompson

    After spending time at Root, Huckleberry, and Lower as a Staff Engineer, I’ve gained a particular interest in building software that enables businesses to responsibly grow and maintain their team’s productivity. I’m lucky to be surrounded at rwx by those who wish to do the same. Outside of work, you can probably find me playing D&D, video games, or being herded by my Australian Shepherd, Luna.
