About Planeteria

Since 1999, Planeteria has been designing, developing, and supporting community-focused websites for municipalities, public agencies, and private enterprise organizations around the country. We’ve built over 500 sites serving millions of customers. We pride ourselves in offering modular solutions for organizations who want the ability to make adjustments to their website without needing technical support. Additionally, we build our sites with the ability to be comprehensively re-designed without requiring a full re-development effort. This helps save our clients money while keeping your website flexible as the needs of your community and organization change.

We’re also highly focused on providing content support. Our content specialists personally work with you to understand, organize, edit, refine and migrate your content and its structure.

We believe in flexible websites. That means that as your organization grows and changes, the website can evolve easily with you. Utilizing WordPress or Drupal CMS not only allows control of all content by non-technical staff but also allows global design and functionality changes without re-building the entire site. A flexible website keeps your brand fresh and your audience engaged without great expense or difficulty.

Organizationally, Planeteria values positive and collaborative relationships with our clients. The most successful relationships are when we become an extension of your team working towards a common goal. Since 1999, we have designed and developed hundreds of high-quality and feature-rich websites for clients across the country. Our specialty is building custom websites for content-heavy private and public organizations with diverse stakeholder groups.

For Planeteria to create positive and productive digital experiences, we uphold three core values: service, diversity, and equity. We consider those values when proposing solutions for our clients, and we have considered those values as we’ve built our team. We have 25 employees distributed around the country with our main office in Santa Rosa, California. Using a distributed workforce allows us broader access to talent with diverse life experiences. It also provides our team with experience working in a wider variety of communities.

Programming Languages: PHP, ASP, .Net, C#, Javascript, SQL

Content Management Systems: WordPress, Kentico & Drupal
