Company Overview:

Hoverstate is a digital innovation company with offices in California (Los Angeles), Texas (Lubbock), Utah (Lehi), Washington (Seattle), and Italy (Turin) specializing in Health and Life Sciences. We are a full-service design/development shop specializing in creating innovative digital products; forward-thinking technology strategies; leveraging compliant technologies; developing rock-solid code; testing our products with a robust QA team/automation; then backing it all with marketing support. If there is a problem to be solved in the digital space, Hoverstate can solve it.
