Adapt. Evolve. Thrive.
A modern competitive advantage demands proprietary software & data applications. Survive the disruption age and come out stronger than ever. WaterBear can help you get there.
We accept projects from 1 to 6 months in length. We work on well-defined problems that will give clients lasting advantages.
We staff at least 2 engineers on each project, to ensure timely MVP shipment and ensure the highest quality standards.
Demos & Quality Assurance
The journey to MVP should be incremental, with mini deploys and QA, testing assumptions every step of the way.
Launch & Maintain
Custom solution meets real world. From here it's time to refine the product, or stabilize it with a maintenance retainer.
We take on new product projects with budgets from $60,000 to $500,000 and can supply a wide range of software expertise*. For classic software consulting/contracting we bill $5,120 per week per developer.
WaterBear offers flexible, agile-like product development for early stage solutions as well as more structured product development processes for matured needs.
We offer maintenance retainers starting at 4 hours per billable month of MVP length. A standard retainer rate for a 3 month project, with two engineers is around 24 hours per month. Retainers are strongly recommended to ensure fast response times, and efficient software development.
*We offer various special skills to complement an MVP through our network, including mobile, specialized design needs, machine learning. etc. Rates for these services vary.
