We Make Web and Mobile Apps
We design and build software that stands the test of time, specializing in Ruby on Rails, Ember, Clojure, and UI/UX.
What We Do
We’ll take your business to the next level. Here’s how:
We build elegant, powerful software that drives business and gets results.
We make applications look great and feel effortless on screens big and small.
Whether through a native app or responsive design, we find the best way to bring your product to the mobile audience
From low-level Ruby workers to Service-Oriented Ruby on Rails clustered applications, we've been slinging Ruby since our beginnings.
We specialize in Ember, Angular, Backbone and React for fast client-side applications.
Front End Development
Semantic HTML and modular, reusable, maintainable CSS ensures your app can scale on the client side.
We love software built in functional languages, including Clojure and Haskell.
Everything we build looks fantastic on myriad screen sizes and orientations.
Our design and development capabilities mix well when it comes to the iOS platform, where we excel at creating unique, usable apps.
Our designers work closely with our developers to build intuitive, user-friendly and elegant interfaces.
User Experience Design
Rapid prototyping, wireframes, user flows, user interviews and usability testing are integral to our process.
Graphic Design and Illustration
Bendyworks’ designers craft client-focused illustration, packaging and identity design.
Need a team for your project?
The way we approach projects at Bendyworks can be summed up in a single word: flexibility. Our entire process revolves around staying nimble and adaptable to your needs.
We talk with you. A lot.
Agile course correction requires constant feedback, and we keep our lines of communication clear and free for our clients. Bendyworks believes in daily, efficient contact in a way that works for you. Which means you’ll never be left wondering how the project is coming along.
We don't do fixed bids.
Because we charge by time and materials, you can change the scope of your project in a natural way as it evolves. Need new features? Need to stop a project and start it up again later? No need to rework a contract, Bendyworks will adjust to your needs on the fly.
We work in pairs.
Two brains are better than one, especially when it comes to coding and design. We adhere to the agile principle of pair programming to improve the accuracy, elegance, and development time of the software we write for you. With constant code review, superior project navigation, and instant bug detection, there really is no better way to develop software.
We use BDD and TDD.
When it comes time to fully flesh out your project, we take the traditional development path and turn it on its head. How? By using Test Driven Development and Behavior Driven Development, which both dramatically speed up the development time and improve the accuracy of a project.
We use the right tools.
At Bendyworks we believe you should use a hammer when you need a hammer, and a wrench when you need a wrench. From Ruby on Rails to Cocoa Touch, we’re equipped and skilled with the most effective development and design tools the digital world has to offer. We won’t ever use the wrong solution to the problem just because “we know this particular technology.”
We have an integrated team.
There are a lot of bright brains under our company’s roof, and they’re all great at something different. Which means our skill set isn’t just deep, but quite wide as well. From planning to UX and design to development on nearly any platform, we can take your product from back-of-the-napkin idea to execution.
