    From low-level Ruby workers to Service-Oriented Ruby on Rails clustered applications, we've been slinging Ruby since our beginnings.

Whether you need a seasoned partner to take your ideas to completion, additional support, or a final push for your development team, Bendyworks is here to take your projects to completion and beyond.


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.

Illustration - We work in pairs.

We accelerate each other.

Having a Bendyworker on your team means you have access to all the minds here at Bendyworks. Elevating difficult problems to the rest of the team gives the opportunity to step back from their perspective and combine it with everyone else's. Never getting stuck is a team effort.

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.

Illustration - We use the right tools.

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 React Native, 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.”

Illustration - We have an integrated team

We are always learning.

The world of technology is always changing. We keep ahead of the curve by continuously pushing ourselves to find better ways of solving problems. Our developers engage in dedicated bi-weekly growth time which is on our dime not yours. This keeps constantly learning and pushing forward.
