Erivelton and Will founded Melty after working on a multi-year project together and recognizing how well we collaborate. As close friends, our families have traveled and vacationed together, and for better or worse, we share the same sense of humor.
Melty is the culmination of the team's professional goals to 1) work with terrific people; 2) work on challenging problems; and 3) have an impact. Building software together with a great team for interesting clients checks all these boxes.

How we Do
Our mission at Melty is to deliver your app, website, or software project affordably and on time, so you can focus on what’s really important: your customers.
Our clients are primarily in the United States, and our development takes place in Brazil. We are deeply embedded in the technical community surrounding a top Brazilian engineering university, Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, in the beach city of Vitória, Brazil.
This location has the advantage of NOT being located in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Recife, or other technical hubs where companies like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft compete for talent and pay top dollar to cover higher costs of big-city living.
Unlike Europe, India, Russia, or Southeast Asia, Brazil also has the advantage of being located in a timezone that is 1-4 hours away from anywhere in the continental US. This gives us significant overlapping working hours between the US and Brazil.
In sum, our location enables us to hire ambitious local talent to deliver high-quality product, on time, within budget, and without sacrificing communication.
We Do It for ThemAnd for tacos.
