About us

AMBR Detroit was formed in 2012, when former co-workers Anthony Montalbano & Brian Ritter joined forces to build amazing things. They started consulting with Bizdom startups and transitioned into client work. Their first official office was at the co-working space at Grand Circus Detroit. In 2015, the team moved to a magical space at the corner of Shelby St. and Congress, in downtown Detroit. Here, they are excited to help shape the future of the city as well as your next project. Can we build something for you already?!

Work at AMBR Detroit

We are a group of dreamers, builders, and creative thinkers. When we're not hard at work building awesome things we have ping pong tournaments, wait in line to check out the newest Detroit restaurant, enjoy silent discos, and learn to make pottery (that happened once). We get Chazzano coffee delivered frequently, and our kitchen is stocked with many drinks and delicious snacks. If you like snacks, people and have a master's in badassery, you should join our team.
