About 10Pearls

We’re a human-centered business.

We believe that the success of a company is ultimately measured by its impact on people—its employees, its customers, and its community. This understanding fuels everything we do, from building a world-class digital experience practice to creating professional development programs for our employees worldwide.

Our human-centric philosophy has driven 10Pearls since its founding. 10Pearls was started by Imran and Zeeshan Aftab in 2004. What began as a two-man operation at a kitchen table is now a 320+ person organization with offices in DC, Karachi, Toronto, Dubai, and San Francisco.

Imran was inspired to create 10Pearls while working as Head of Global Sourcing at AOL. He traveled the world and saw first-hand how well-paying jobs can change entire communities. Jobs did more than deliver paychecks to employees, they enriched the lives of families, creating a ripple effect throughout the entire local ecosystem.

Determined to build a company that not only delivered a superior service but also made a difference in the world, Imran and Zeeshan started 10Pearls out of their mother’s kitchen as a software and web development shop that catered to small businesses. Today, 10Pearls helps clients of all sizes—from start-ups to Fortune 500 enterprises compete in the digital age.

How We Work

We believe in co-creation, working with our clients as one-team. Our process is collaborative, transparent, and proactive. Our development process follows a continuous cycle-build, measure, learn, and improve. We strive to maximize efficiency, minimize surprises, and increase speed to market.

Digital never sleeps and neither do we.

Our process includes DevOps and 24×7 support, ensuring that products are monitored, maintained, and fully supported efficiently, affordably, and around the clock.

Customer experience is at the heart of what we do.

We’ve gathered leaders in CX, UX, and service to design who harness their backgrounds in psychology and cognitive science to design highly compelling experiences.

We don’t treat security as an afterthought.

We architect security into product development from day one. We not only rely on proven best practices, but constantly monitor the threat landscape to ensure that we’re minimizing vulnerabilities for our clients. Our global workforce enables us to monitor your product and fix problems the moment they occur.
