About rmd Studio

Get to know us

Our History

In 2006, Rastin Mehr founded and incorporated rmd Studio as a web application development company in Vancouver, Canada. Our specialty was developing online learning, eCommerce, and content management systems. Some of the projects that we created were an online learning management system (LMS) for five medical schools in British Columbia, an enterprise LMS used for delivering character development courses to hundreds of thousands of K12 students in Canada and the US, and an email campaign management system for a well-known Canadian smartphone manufacturer which our client used in CES and CTIA consumer electronic shows.

With the advent of iPhones in 2008, a team of doctors hired us to develop iOS medical apps, and that’s how we became the first mobile app development company in Vancouver. Since then, our portfolio of enterprise clients has grown to include industry leaders such as LafargeHolcim (the World’s largest cement manufacturer), MMG (Mineral Mining Group), and VAISALA (a global leader in environmental and industrial measurement). We have also developed web and mobile solutions for nonprofit organizations such as WorkSafe BC, Sparc BC, and Vancouver Coastal Health.

Since 2017, we have broadened our focus on building distributed architectures in the cloud for our browser, desktop, and mobile apps. We started developing Client-Server, Microservices, and Federated architectures combined with DevOps and Release Engineering customized explicitly for them so our clients could scale up their operations while staying compliant with privacy and security regulations in Europe, the United States, and Canada.

“Our clients hire us for our technical skills and track record of successfully executing their ideas.”

Idea execution is complex and challenging. The ability to do so is, however, scarce and precious. Our clients hire us for our technical skills and track record of successfully executing their ideas.

Our Values

We adhere to the following principles and values when designing, developing, and maintaining software applications:

Privacy: staying transparent about handling user data and making users aware of why we collect and treat their sensitive information.

Security: encrypting all files and data at rest and in transit to guard user data.

Accessibility: taking technical measures in our UI design and development to make apps more accessible to users with visual and hearing impairments.

Inclusivity: using inclusive language and imagery in UI/UX design to reflect the diversity of end-users gender, race, ethnicity, culture, age, ability, and more.

Explicit Consent: collect user’s sensitive data only with clear and informed Consent with the option to opt-out.

Sustainability: create software that is efficient, scalable, maintainable, and adaptable with consideration of its impact on the environment and society’s overall well-being.

Open innovation: stay committed to open innovation, contributing to open-source licensed projects and Creative Commons licensed media.
