Stream 9 is a custom website development, web design and mobile applications company located in Cleveland. We write great apps, build great websites, write great software and then develop a plan to drive traffic to your site. We utilize inbound marketing strategies, SEO and social media, so you and your business can be successful. Bottom line, we want to build something that will get you more business. We're also honest and will tell you if your logo could use a spruce up or if you should re-think your branding because we think it will help your business.
People often ask what "Stream 9" means. Seriously, it means nothing. It's generic enough to cover unforseen services we may offer as the tech world rapidly changes (maybe there won't be websites one day, remember the BBS?), data is always streaming (we stopped counting the bits) and Kirk has always loved the number nine. Nine just sounds nice.
We are a tight-knit group of fun-loving, professionals who take pride in the quality of the work we produce and eager to stay on top of current trends and technologies as it pertains to the web. We hold ourselves to high standards when it comes to the software and websites we develop, giving you a natural partner for your business' web endeavors.
Stream 9 places an emphasis on "doing things right" and we strive to provide outstanding customer satisfaction and support. We strive to establish long-term relationships with our clients to ensure their ongoing success and give them someone they can count on to support their web technology needs.
In addition to being a consultancy, we also develop and maintain a proprietary PHP framework and content management system called Iris.
Kirk enjoys playing soccer with his son in the snow and brewing beer in the garage. He loves Weird Al Yankovic and all things Cleveland. He is constantly taking on home renovations projects and pulling pranks on his employees. He's a connoisseur of cheeses, IPAs and various types of mini sandwiches. Oh yes, he loves those tiny little sandwiches.
Ryan is our resident heckler. He is constantly blurting out random words or sounds throughout any given work day. You can find him waiting outside of Chipotle before they open because he is always hungry by 10 o'clock. He nearly adopted a one-eyed cat before settling on a run-of-the-mill two-eyed cat. He spends his free time golfing without golf gloves, learning new ways to program and eating meat.
Matt is the most travelled of all the Stream 9 team. He is constantly talking about his past romps in Brazil or Rome or Trinidad and Tobago. He used to live on a sailboat and now he resides with his wife in a trendy condo with no curtains on the windows. When he isn't dreaming of owning a high-end shoe store, you can find Matt eating meat with Ryan, snowboarding, watching baseball or cleaning his desk.
Michael lives a double life. By day he is a web developer and by night he is a high school hockey coach. He is obviously the most patient in the office so the constant pranks and manly bickering from the other guys doesn't get to him much. Michael enjoys playing chess matches against elderly men at the park, playing PC games and tinkering with various types of circuits. Last, but not least, Matt and Ryan have managed to suck Michael into the meat addiction club. He loves his meat.
Daniel is the office foreigner, in fact so much so that he is not even physically present (yet). Thanks to a lack of hobbies and cross-atlantic fibre-channel technology, Daniel is able to be part of the team while he is being screened for americanization. Rumor has it Daniel used to be active with biking, skate and snowboarding in his youthful years before a rapid decline the day he got his drivers license. While he's not busy working, Daniel enjoys slow walks along the river Nidelven or Trondheimsfjorden with his Ohio-native wife while he yells profanities at seagulls. Even though Daniel is well on his way towards full americanization, he has swore to always celebrate the Norwegian liberation day on the 17th of May: the day Norwegians finally gained independence from the polar bears.
