About us

we’re a
human-centered business

10Pearls was founded in 2004 by brothers Imran and Zeeshan Aftab. What began as a two-person operation is now a global business with offices in the United States, Costa Rica, Colombia, United Kingdom, Pakistan and Peru.

Since its inception, 10Pearls has been a “double bottom line” company, created to deliver superior services and make a difference in the world. Our founders understood first-hand how good jobs could change entire communities, particularly in emerging countries. The value of high-paying jobs was evident in the enriched lives of families, creating a ripple effect throughout an entire community.

Fast-forward to today, 10Pearls is helping startups and enterprises alike to compete in the digital age while investing heavily in the wellbeing and training of our offshore teams. We partner with our clients to imagine, design, build, and deliver innovative mobile and digital products.

10Pearls reminds me of the ‘double bottom line' businesses’ that Washington sports mogul Ted Leonsis espouses. That refers to businesses that earn profits while accomplishing some social good.

10Pearls Labs

Technology moves at breakneck speeds. At 10Pearls Labs, we stay ahead of emerging technologies to distinguish which new tech trends will fizzle and fade and which will have long-lasting effects in your industry. We study, test, and analyze the impact of artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, machine learning, and NLP and measure their impact on software development, business models, and go-to-market strategies.

Empower Foundation

From our founding, 10Pearls has been committed to enriching communities. We believe in much more than digital and corporate growth to contribute positively to society: doing good while doing well through volunteer events, free courses, and program sponsorships that focus on building a better world for women, children, and the disabled.
