Mighty Acorn

Starting small: a 100 foot oak tree starts with a mighty acorn

At the heart of our mission is the generative metaphor of an acorn

The acorn serves as the tough and durable seed of enduring practices, processes, and tools that, when nurtured properly, grows into a robust and resilient digital service. A digital service with strong roots that can withstand changes, major crises, and dependably deliver on the expectations that today’s and tomorrow’s constituents have of their government online.


At Mighty Acorn, we make it easier for governments to deliver world-class digital services. We achieve this by empowering people, increasing transparency, breaking down silos, and moving together toward a shared goal.

From renewing a fishing license to applying for unemployment benefits, we build digital services that deliver government programs reliably, smoothly, and quickly. Our vision is a world where “good enough for government work” returns to its pedestal: fast, reliable, and frustration-free.

Our Expertise

Scalable architecture

We design web applications, balancing delivery with planning to provide results quickly while iterating toward a bigger vision.

Automated testing

With the right testing in place, engineering can move quickly and confidently, and the business can be sure that new features will meet their objectives. We build automated feedback loops to fit any situation.

Product management

Through a unique blend of business and technical savviness, a big-picture vision, and the drive to work with others to make that vision a reality, product management creates clarity in ambiguous environments that enables the delivery of valuable user and business outcomes.

Delivery management

Delivery management creates and maintains the product life cycle and the ceremonies and activities that support a team’s efforts toward delivering on their commitments.

DevOps tooling

Putting DevOps tooling in place empowers teams to make big changes quickly and safely. We implement Infrastructure-as-Code, CI/CD, release automation, and observability tools to help you move fast.

Business process engineering

Business analysts identify, document, and map the flow of data from one end of the system to the other. This also includes the associated manual and automated business processes that inform automated test coverage through legacy or new applications.

Data engineering

Making smart decisions requires the right people to have the right data at the right time. We collect, move, and aggregate data to enable those decisions.

Site reliability engineering

Keeping your application secure, scalable, and reliable takes work. From load testing to monitoring, we know how to keep web applications online.


We are a team of seasoned engineers, architects, and product leaders with extensive experience delivering high-impact digital products for government, enterprise, and education organizations.
