Why choose us?
Because we write highly functional and easy-to-use software written in LabVIEW!
We are LabVIEW Experts. We're very quick to learn new skills and find innovative solutions to problems. We're based in the UK (currently in the Midlands) but we have worked with clients abroad (US and Switzerland) and we pride ourselves on our relationship with them. We get to know our clients and fully understand their requirements and don't believe in 'lowest common denominator' development. We believe in delivering quality, functional code with excellent customer service and real problem solving ability. We can find solutions to all sorts of problems.
MediaMongrels was incorporated in May 2016 after its founder, Sam Sharp, saw an opportunity in the market for an experienced LabVIEW consultant and software developer after working as a full-time LabVIEW engineer for 4 years, half of which was spent as a Certified LabVIEW Architect (CLA). Sam had previously worked as a Controls and R%D engineer for a UK defence contractor which is where he started to use LabVIEW for improving control systems and developing software for production test of the company's products.
The name/entity 'MediaMongrels' had existed for about 10 years prior to its incorporation in 2016, but during this time it was focussed on offering part-time PHP/MySQL web development projects and web hosting to a wide range of clients before moving into LabVIEW/TestStand software development.

A very long time ago, a few months before this domain was first registered (May 2004), Sam had just started getting into web hosting and web development work - i.e. digital media. Sam also loves dogs, and has a Romanian rescue called Maddie. There isn't much more of an explanation. The name has stuck though and that's just how it is!
