Tragic was hired by Skybound Entertainment to provide specialized engineering talent for various projects. One of their major undertakings was rebuilding the company's insider's application, which includes a large database program and SSO across multiple platforms. Tragic successfully revamped the program into a more robust and scalable solution, with significant frontend design work. They also migrated the company's entire web platform from Rackspace to a highly scalable AWS platform. Currently, Tragic is working on constructing a data warehouse in AWS using Amazon Redshift, which will allow the development of frontend data analytics. The project has cost Skybound Entertainment almost $1 million since its commencement in January 2019.

For the company, Tragic was tasked with updating both the site's design and backend. The goal was to enhance the site's credibility and authority. Tragic began by outlining a comprehensive scope of work, then provided suggestions to maximize benefits. Once everything was approved, they moved into the design phase, where they suggested ideas to refresh the site’s design and took measures to ensure legitimacy. They also updated the site’s backend to reduce bugs. The engagement, which began in September 2017, has so far cost the company around $8,000.

The startup alwaysAI hired Tragic to implement an advanced Content Management System (CMS) that would enable the marketing team to control content publication. The company also needed technical strategy expertise and sophisticated front-end development. Tragic, renowned in the San Diego tech community, was chosen based on their reputation for high-quality work. The project involved the implementation of a CMS to quickly scale their content footprint. The project had the involvement of Tragic's CEO, a Project Manager, and a Senior Developer.
