Who We Are

Dreamers that Do.

We’re a scrappy team of do-ers who have an innate drive to build the future. That’s why brands and agencies of all sizes turn to us when they’re in too deep, looking for the bridge solution, or just need to get something done right the first time.

When your product is built by Bellwood Labs, you get more than a vendor. You get:

1

An Invested Partner

We’re not a team of churn-and-burn order takers. We can guarantee that your other partners aren’t thinking about this dev project in the shower. But we are.

2

An Inquisitive Partner

We believe that the success of a given project depends on the quality of questions asked every step of the way. We’ll ask those questions, work collaboratively, and even challenge you if need be.

3

An Integrated Partner

We’re not looking at this through a myopic lens. With over 120 years of combined experience spanning across all aspects of business, we’re here to look at the whole picture.

Story

The Story Behind the Name

While our team hails from all over the United States, Atlanta is where we call home. Our city takes time to get to know - our roads are complicated, our vernacular can be hard to wrap your head around, and we’re certainly not the largest or most mighty city in the country - but it’s a city worth knowing. Our community-oriented denizens work to build a better city through an iterative process, one day at a time.

And, if you navigate west from downtown Atlanta, just outside the concrete jungle, you’ll come across one of the city’s best kept secrets: Bellwood Quarry.

We named our company Bellwood Labs as a nod to our roots. Like Atlanta’s Bellwood Quarry, we’re a hidden gem that takes a complex environment and transforms it into a breath of fresh air. We strive to embody many of the same qualities of our growing, thriving city in each project we take on - even if it’s an iterative process. Just like Atlanta, Bellwood Labs is worth getting to know.

Team

We Make the Magic
Happen Every Day.

With more than 20 years of experience we can
deliver the best product design.

Founder & CEO

Rob Kischuk

Rob Kischuk is a builder of more than just software products - he’s a builder of companies and teams, as well as partnerships and relationships.

Ever since he learned how to code, Rob’s fascination with transforming ideas into action has enabled him to create great software products that empower people to do the work that matters most to them.

Throughout Rob’s career, he’s always strived to be an invested partner - not an order taker. He started Bellwood Labs because he saw the disconnection between a business’ problems, its objectives, and the software product. From helping startups like Proficient Systems and Air2Web achieve successful exits, to driving digital transformation for enterprise-level companies like Chick-fil-A, Delta Airlines, PGi, and more, Rob’s caring and collaborative approach has been at the center of it all.

In addition to serving on the board of the Atlanta Interactive Marketing Association (AIMA), Rob has been recognized time and time again as a key figure in Atlanta’s vibrant business community. Rob has been named to Atlanta’s Top “40 under 40,” and he has also been a finalist in TIE Atlanta’s “Top Up-and-Coming Entrepreneur.”

Outside of work, you can find Rob slipping into sporting events, exploring Atlanta’s foodie scene, or volunteering at Cumberland Community Church.

Rob holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, as well as an MBA from Georgia State University.

CTO

Daniel Sims

What to know about Daniel Sims? He’s always asking the right questions, making his clients feel heard, and helping others reach their potential. A born problem-solver, Daniel’s inquisitive nature, coupled with his active listening skills, enables him to steer complex problems toward simple and elegant solutions for end users.

Prior to joining the Bellwood Labs team in 2012, Daniel’s software development experience consisted of building, developing, and integrating complex systems.

From building a lead gen platform for Universities.com, to designing and developing a custom content management system for the Salvation Army, to working on the systems integrations team for a Point-of-Sales hardware / software company (Radiant Systems), to his current role at Bellwood Labs, Daniel operates under a simple belief:  when built right, technology connects.

When Daniel isn’t exploring creative software concepts, you can catch him on a long distance hike with his dog, binge watching the latest sci-fi series, raising awareness about Friedreich’s Ataxia (a neurological disease impacting his wife), or playing with his 2-year-old son, Jack.
