We work with startups and entrepreneurs

A team of passionate and pragmatic people you can trust

We understand that finding the right team to create, build and support your startup is a tricky task.

Our process includes a discovery phase, feature selection workshops, meticulous but flexible planning, constant communication and extensive testing to ensure a smooth launch without surprises.

We bring our technical expertise and knowledge of the web industry to the table to deliver a scalable project ready for market.

If you are looking for a technical team who doesn't speak jargon and likes to get things done, we would be delighted to use all our experience - gained by helping dozens of startups to launch - and provide the best advice to suit your project.

Discovery & feature workshop

This is where we get to know your project in more detail.

We sit down around a table with you and prioritise your features to ensure a quick and smooth launch.

Quick turnaround

By using Ruby on Rails and following our process, we know how to be efficient and productive.

Our average idea-to-launch execution is eight weeks, and post-launch we continue to help our clients by holding regular improvement iterations.

The support you need

We are a mix of tech- and business-savvy people. When working on a project, we are not shy about bringing our ideas to the table.

Once the project is live, our support system ensures that the team is always available when you most need it.

Remote communication

We are a remote team experienced in conducting projects remotely.

In the past, we have worked with companies all over the UK, France and the United States.

You will be in good hands, like our previous clients

For digital agencies and technical teams

Ruby on Rails and JavaScript developers available

Finding Ruby on Rails or JavaScript talent is hard these days. This is why we provide support to external digital agencies, clients or technical teams that might be short on resources.

We will treat your project with the same dedication and care as our own and guarantee a quick feature turnaround as well as good-quality and well-tested code.

Multiple agencies have trusted us with their clients' projects, and we have also integrated with tech teams to release features on their internal project.

Helping design & marketing agencies

If your team provides design but needs help on the technical build, we could be the right fit.

We will facilitate the communication between all parties, use our technical expertise to make the right decision quickly and launch a robust application for your client.

Helping tech firms

We understand that sometimes features need to go live as soon as possible.

This is why we are happy to help other tech teams with an extra pair of hands when you most need it by integrating with your team, following your coding conventions and getting things done.

Some words from clients

  • The Perfect Pitch pilot was quite a challenging real time interactive event.

    We were completely reliant on the application that the CookiesHQ team had developed and we were all using it for the first time.

    It all worked perfectly of course and we had a fantastic event.

    Stuart Hamilton - The Perfect Pitch Stuart Hamilton

  • I've had a great experience working with Nic as a developer and CookiesHQ as a service provider, they have just the right balance of professionalism and humour.

    Estimations are accurate, code is of the highest quality and the work ethic is top notch.

    I very much look forward to working with them on future projects.

    Dave Cropley - Beef Dave Cropley

  • We have been so impressed by all of you at Cookies. Your technical knowledge is immense but you have been very patient when dealing with customers with less technical knowledge then you (i.e. me!) taking time to explain what you are doing in a way that can be understood by the layman. You have communicated with us regularly to keep us updated with changes and progress and always responded quickly to any queries we had.

    Your team has been consistently conscientious and committed to the project from start to finish, often going the extra mile for our project. Most of all working with you has been so enjoyable and we feel that we have you on our side. We look forward to working with you all in the future.

    Many thanks for making Delivery Folk possible!

    Georgina Bailey - Delivery Folk Georgina Bailey

  • Working with the CookiesHQ team has been a great experience. We followed a process together that was well defined and the communication was great both ways throughout the project.

    The scope was carefully managed and because of this there were no nasty shocks and the deliverables were just as expected.

    Our clients are already starting to see some great insights being delivered by our custom analytics dashboard display and it has also enabled us to communicate the value we add much more effectively.

    Neil Andrassy - The Filter Neil Andrassy

  • Working with Cookies on our CRM is always interesting and fun - at the end of every week we are always amazed to see just how much they have achieved, and how they have produced something that makes a real impact on the business. The team really understand our ideas and what we want to achieve, and always have positive inputs.

    The way we communicate with Cookies is also great, and crucial to the success of the project so far. They are always available so it is extremely easy to get things done. We can simply describe our desired end result and Nic always think of a way to achieve it.

    We have complete trust and confidence in the team's abilities, ideas and commitment and can not recommend them highly enough.

    Rachel Plummer - Gap Medics Rachel Plummer

  • From the moment we started working with CookiesHQ I knew that we had found an invaluable partner.

    Launching a start-up can be incredibly challenging and daunting but these guys were able to ease so much of the pain.

    Expertly knowledgeable, logical and cool-headed, they guided us from our initial concept into a fully functional MVP which we successfully launched into the marketplace.

    I can't recommend the team highly enough. We're all fired up to get started on our next phase of product development.

    Oliver Gosling - CardNest Oliver Gosling

  • It was a pleasure to work with CookiesHQ, their working method is very methodical with an efficient use of online tools to make sure that nothing is missed. The quality of work was excellent especially as they had to pick the up the code from another developer.

    Quality Control was very well managed with everything being tested before I saw it and the whole process was very transparent with no nasty surprises at the end - I’ve already racked up my next chunk of work that I’d like to get done.

    Probably the finest Ruby on Rails developers in the South West, thanks for a great job on the Patternbank site.

    Andrew Limbert - Patternbank Andrew Limbert

  • We decided to partner with CookiesHQ simply because we were impressed by their approach.

    It championed an agile method, daily calls and an overall obsession with detail.

    Their project management was excellent with brilliant insights from both the project manager and feedback from developers. The end result was a website delivered on time, on budget and better than spec.

    A pleasure to work with and a team we whole heartily recommend.

    John Lynch - Climbing Fish John Lynch

  • Nic built a responsive mobile site for us re-using as much of our existing Rails code as possible.

    He was fast, on time and easy to work with. We're delighted with the results.

    I'd have no hesitation working with him again - and we probably will.

    Martin Dell - Kyero Martin Dell

  • CookiesHQ gets great things done quickly.

    Bringing a deep knowledge of his development tools and technology he has enabled us to achieve our vision at breakneck speed.

    James Routley - LocalMatrix James Routley

  • I've worked with a lot of web developers and it's not an exaggeration to say that Nic is one of the very best.

    Highly intelligent, a great problem-solver, a clear communicator and the master of his chosen technology (Ruby on Rails), Nic inspires confidence in everyone around him.
