About Mattched IT

The Company & Our Team

Mattched IT was founded in June 2006 by Matt and Steve, who had been working together for several years. Initially the business focussed on providing out-sourced development services, but this evolved into our current model - a flexible collective who work with other agencies as well as directly on client projects. And our own products, too.

Now our team of four work on a wide range of projects including our own eCommerce and CMS frameworks and a myriad of client websites and applications. By bringing in different individuals with different strengths, we believe we offer more to our clients.

Our team are primarily home-based in different parts of the UK. Apart from Matt, who is in Jersey (and insists on regularly reminding us that it is the warmest place in the British isles).
