Who we are
HARE.digital started life in creating great digital experiences as a full service digital agency, enabling companies to truly maximise their potential through the exciting world of digital including Web Design, Software, Design and Branding and Digital Marketing. But we quickly realised our talent for innovation in digital IoT products, so we pride ourselves in also being an IoT specialist.
Founded by our CEO Christopher O’Hare BSc MSc in 2015, HARE rapidly grew 400% in its first year by going the extra mile for clients and establishing great relationships. Working closely with our clients to truly understand their ambitions meant we became partners in many projects.
We believe in transparency in our work and our project management platform allows our clients to see what we’re working on and actively collaborate with us.
We are very proud of utilising cutting edge technology to ensure we give our clients the edge they need in a competitive world. This is nurtured by actively researching and learning the latest technology. We also conduct regular paid ‘Development Days’ to encourage our team to step out their comfort zone in a friendly environment before then sharing this with the rest of the team.
Our motto, “We build the future” ensures we keep our sights on what the future will bring and prevent us from becoming complacent.
About our CEO
Chris is voraciously passionate about the future of technology and is always looking for trends of the next innovation set to change the world. The HARE brand is the embodiment of this passion.
A University of Sussex Graduate with a First Class BSc in IT For E-Commerce in 2011 then graduating again with a Distinction MSc in IT with Business and Management.
