We help conscious companies tell their story in a meaningful way.

Mangrove is a woman-owned website design and development company with a diverse, talented team distributed around the globe. We’ve been building websites since 2009 that amplify the work of change-making organizations and increase the competitive power of businesses owned by historically marginalized people.

For us, success is helping conscious companies tell their story in a meaningful way. That’s why we prioritize working with B Corps and other businesses that are making an impact with purpose-driven work—from green energy and sustainable design, to groundbreaking banking reform and social justice initiatives.

We deliver to every client a high-impact, customized website that’s easy to update as business needs evolve. Before handing off a new or revamped site, we deliver thorough documentation and training, empowering our clients to take complete ownership of their content.

Your website should be a catalyst for growth and success. Rely on us to tell your story with a beautiful, impactful site that will grow with you.

How we are using business as a force for good.

Mangrove Web became a Certified B Corp in 2016, and a legal Benefit Corporation in 2017.  B Corp is a third party certification created by the nonprofit B Lab to identify companies that have met high levels of performance, accountability, and transparency in the areas of our environment, community, employees and customers. We were thrilled to join a network of like-minded conscious companies redefining success in business.

When our work really matters, we thrive. That extends to how we grow and nurture our team and how we give back to our communities. In the predominantly white and male tech industry, we have a responsibility to expand career opportunities for women* and people of color, and we are committed to mentoring developers from diverse backgrounds as we grow.  We also regularly give time and money to programs working to level the playing field.

    Founder/Owner + CEO

    Maiya was first inspired to use “technology for good” on a work trip to Tanzania in 2005. At the time, Maiya worked for a San Francisco based nonprofit that organized volunteer trips abroad; among other things, she managed their website. On this trip, she helped a man create a simple webpage to gather donations so he could buy materials to build a dam in his community — she found using technology to support people making an impact in their communities to be the most fulfilling and effective work she’d ever done. She soon shifted focus from International Development (her area of study at UCLA) to coding, teaching herself what she needed to know along the way.  

    In 2009 she founded Mangrove, a business dedicated to building websites that help people do good in this world. Maiya enjoys the creative problem solving of her work, especially figuring out solutions that combine sharp technical thinking with real human experiences in mind. She values working alongside a diverse team of talented people who are passionate about what they do. She is intrigued by the clients Mangrove works with and likes learning about each of them. Mostly, she loves collaborating with partners and clients who do meaningful work.  

    Maiya lives most of the time in Truckee, CA with her husband Shaun and little guy Terner, and enjoys being near the river and many trees. You might also find her in Oakland or Australia, where she tends to show up a regular basis.

Our Principles

  • Transparency always

    Our clients are our partners. We make sure we understand your expectations, and we keep you informed throughout the process of building your site.

  • Design with purpose, then beautify

    Based on your goals, we begin with the necessary components for your site and add on from there. We’re not into adding extra fluff just because it’s trendy.

  • Anticipate and adapt

    One inevitable truth about business is that over time, things shift. We create tools that are forward thinking and flexible, so your site evolves with you.

  • Keep learning, stay creative

    Mastering the latest technologies can feel like herding cats some days, but we’re constantly discovering new toolsets or approaches that didn’t exist before.

  • Collaborate often

    Not trying to brag, but we’ve got some talented friends. If your project needs a skillset we don’t offer, we’ll either refer you to a trusted partner or bring on the appropriate support.

  • Empower the client

    Our ultimate goal is that you feel complete ownership of your site. Your website is a tool, and we’ll train you to get efficient use out of it.

  • Get outside

    We love an adventure and exploring new places. Turns out, a few of our best ideas were born beyond the computer screen, which helps us keep our energy up and minds engaged.


Why We Love Mangroves

Mangrove trees are pretty amazing and we’re honored to share their name. They’re naturally flexible, tropical plants that help other organisms thrive. We like to think of our work in the same way—we build platforms that help our clients find greater success.

We fell for mangroves firsthand in places such as Panama, Colombia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, and Cuba. Mangroves are unique because their root systems straddle land and water, protecting the shoreline from erosion. Up top, they’re a gorgeous leafy green, while their fertile roots foster species like crabs, shrimp, and oysters.

In our work, mangroves inspire us to stay versatile. And they show us that some boundaries are merely suggestions that can be overcome with healthy doses of fun, skill, and creativity.
