Valyr Story - Our Values

Our Values

We believe in a “higher ground” of software development. Our core values guide everything we do– trust, integrity, responsiveness, transparency, and giving back.

  • Trust: Work with intention and dependability. No matter the constraints, customers know that if Valyr is on the job, we will deliver. 
  • Integrity: be virtuous, authentic, and kind, and treat others with respect.
  • Responsiveness: Communicate proactively and anticipate client needs.
  • Transparency: Be clear and precise. Avoid surprises– set expectations and communicate well before hitting any bumps.
  • Giving back: we support veterans and their families through programs that foster community and create impact.

Local Support for Pittsburgh Software Development Projects

We work with local Pittsburgh area clients and team members who share our values. We find the most powerful alignments are with those who pair work ethic with integrity, communication, and kindness. It’s not just our software designers and developers that work on projects. Our founders, Gabriel and Melissa Albanes, are also part of the team, sharing your vision for success. We're selective, taking on only a few clients quarterly, so we can work with exceptional clients. Together, there’s nothing we can’t solve.

About Us

Meet Our Founders

Gabriel Albanes, Jacksonville Web Development

Gabriel Albanes

Spend time with our CEO Gabriel Albanes, and you’ll be inspired to make your technical aspirations come to life. Gabriel is a USMC veteran and former DoD operator who leverages his experience to overcome barriers in business with creative problem-solving and a high level of trust in his team. He leads Valyr and builds our reputation by being honest, dependable, and over-delivering. When he isn’t working, you can find Gabriel surfing, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and spending time with his family.

Melissa Albanes, Pittsburgh Software Development

Melissa Albanes

A product marketer before launching Valyr with Gabriel, Melissa has held growth roles at various technology companies, from startups to DocuSign and Google. Today, Melissa serves as our COO and a sales advocate for our company. She also leads Valyr’s “give back” efforts to our military veteran community. When she’s not at her desk, you can find her immersed in a novel, trying out new board games, or embarking on outdoor adventures.
