Then you’ve come to the right place. Treeline Interactive has been helping everyone from startups to enterprise companies develop game-changing products for more than 10 years now.
And we’ll not only design your product - we’ll build it too. We build software and hardware solutions.
Our dedicated team of award-winning developers, designers, engineers, and strategists build mobile apps and wearables, solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), including hardware, and complex web applications.
Companies come to Treeline for creative breakthroughs and technical leaps forward. Whether you want to supplement your team’s expertise on new ventures or scope a project from start to finish, Treeline can help.
We work with industry-leading companies in fields like medical devices, beauty, action sports, logistics, and entertainment. We enjoy being the agile team that helps corporations radically reinvent themselves and the supportive structure that helps startups iterate and get to market.
Unique solutions require unique individuals, and we have attracted the best. Our team is willing to do almost anything to make an impact. We’re serious. Our comprehensive testing has required them to jump out of planes, surf, snowboard, survey from a helicopter, and manage data from the Arctic. All in a day’s work!
As a company, we’re also raising environmental awareness with tree planting, green ride services, and our fleet of skateboards. We have a great office space a block from the beach in beautiful San Diego, and we want to do everything we can to keep it that way.
Our goal is to profoundly change how people interact with the world around them. We hope you’ll join us.

Home Sweet Home
We were born out of the mountains but have stretched our roots to the beach. While the Treeline team spans the world, we gratefully designate San Diego, California as our home.
Founded in the mountains of Lake Tahoe in 2004, we’ve since moved to the shores of San Diego, which we gladly call home. For over ten years we’ve helped companies ranging from medical device innovators to destination resorts to sports conglomerates modernize their businesses and bring new products to market.
The true measure of success is with qualitative metrics but once in a while it sure is nice to get a pat on the back from your peers. Over the years we have been fortunate to win a number of awards for a diverse set of our creations.
