Practical magic is the mysterious, undefinable extra ingredient that makes everything work.

CEO, Belka

Belka is a tight-knit group of 15 devs, designers, strategists and producers.

We put a lot of care and pride in our work, and it shows in the quality of what we deliver. Our clients choose us because we’re good at what we do.

We also care about the influence our work has on the world, and we seek out clients and projects that share our values. What we make is built to last. And Belka is planning to be around for a long time too.

Belka team at the company retreat in Modena, Fall 2022.

We have the best people. Honestly.

The 5 values we live by.


There are no rock stars or gurus at Belka. We are all in this together, which is great, because we're better that way. One for all, and all for one.


We respect people who have worked hard to grow their skills. Is there anything better than watching a good craftsman do what they do best?


We want to work on things that help our clients and their users grow. We also want to grow ourselves, both as a team and as individuals.


Grit means keeping at it. Looking until you find the solution. Doing what you said you'd do, every time. Not stopping until you've got results.


Magic is the mysterious extra ingredient that makes it all work. It’s one of the things that make life worth living, and work worth doing. 

Our roots are in Trento, a university town in the Italian Alps. You should come for a visit.

(We just opened another office in Torino,
where you could also come for a visit.)

Sometimes people invite us to their conferences and podcasts to talk about what we do

We love to talk! If you'd like our perspective on product design, development, innovation, company culture or anything else, just email
