NO-CODE APP DEVELOPMENT FOR BUSINESSES
Let us help your business launch custom production-grade software products in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional developers.
Since 2015, our no-code agency has built 500+ custom products for new startups, growing businesses, and Fortune 500 enterprises 5x faster and cheaper than traditional firms. Clients include:
“Airdev has been critical to our venture's progress. They truly offer a seemingly impossible value proposition: they not only sit in the intersection between quality, speed, and cost, but also bring business wits into the process. In the end, I truly considered Airdev our partners in our venture.”
“Airdev is a great solution for companies who are starting at the very earliest stage, who are trying to come up with a proof of concept…But, they’re not just for the brand new ideation and MVP types. Airdev has built a system that’s enabled us to scale as well.”
“Airdev helped me launch my marketplace for therapy services in a fraction of the time and cost quoted by other vendors. Being non-technical, I relied on Airdev's guidance for prioritizing the most critical MVP features to test my hypothesis. Really recommend using this team if you want a strong product to market quickly!”
“What was most attractive about no-code and Airdev was the cost, the quality, and the trust and communication aspect…Airdev was the perfect solution because they could help me build something fast, and more importantly, affordable”
"In just two weeks, AirDev created an elegantly streamlined version of our previous gig management platform, built on top of our Salesforce data. The result became an instant hit with our network of linguists, while dramatically reducing the time we spend on ongoing maintenance."
"Working with AirDev was an entirely different experience from typical outsourced developers; it was like having another member of the team. Their ability to translate broad guidance and run with ideas saved me and our team 40+ hours per week."
"As non-technical, female founders of a mission-driven organization, we got a lot of feedback that our idea was nice but we needed to get a technical co-founder on board to be taken seriously. What Airdev has been able to accomplish in just a week is totally astounding and fits our needs perfectly."
“Having partnered with Airdev on previous projects both for HP and other leading technology companies, it was clear that they were best placed to deliver this sort of complex tool.”
"We’ve spent the same amount on consultants implementing our off-the-shelf system as we’ve spent building something totally custom with Airdev."

MODELS & Pricing
Hire a fully managed team to build your product
This initial step is meant to help decide if we’re a good fit for your project. This includes assessing tech feasibility, your team’s goals, budget, and timeline, and aligning expectations so that we can together decide whether to proceed.
You begin by booking a call with an Airdev account specialist to discuss your project and our approach. They will understand your team, what you are trying to do, and the most critical product requirements to get there. From this call they will write out a summary for our product team, which will review and confirm technical feasibility and budget/timeline alignment.
The result of this step is a high-level written proposal for the build: the features we would build, expected budget, and stages/timeline to get to launch. While the exact details will be confirmed during the formal scoping process, our aim at this step is to give you the information you need to have confidence that this is the right path for you. When you’re ready, you’ll put down a refundable deposit to reserve time with your PM for scoping.
The goal of the scoping step is to align on the exact features and architecture for your app. Taking the time to define everything upfront helps us to move quickly during the build, and ensures that you get what you are expecting.
We start by matching you with a Product Manager (PM) from our team who we believe will best serve your needs. During your calls with the PM, you’ll walk through the entire app flow, stopping at critical points to decide what to include vs. push for later, and the best ways to solve for the requirements within budget. We typically anchor on the leanest approach, and let you push to add features as needed. Our team will perform technical research and document all requirements.
The result of this step is a detailed scope document that outlines the exact users, pages, and features your initial product will include, as well as a timeline and budget for the build. By this point you will have clarity on how your vision translates into a specific product.
With feature requirements in place, the final step to the pre-build process is to add high fidelity mockups that define what users will see as they interact with your product. This is where the UX designer comes in.
Using the written feature descriptions from the scoping doc, the UX designer creates a full set of custom Figma mockups for your app, using our Canvas design framework with your company's branding. This means you’ll get designs that are (1) custom to your features, (2) follow best practices and standard UX conventions, and (3) fit our build process so they can be assembled efficiently.
Once all pictures and words are combined, you have the entire scope doc that will serve as the blueprint for your build. You can submit any detailed feedback within this doc, and your PM can make adjustments as needed (including corresponding budget/timeline updates) until you are comfortable with the plan.
Some clients prefer to use their own custom designs, which can add a significant amount to build cost and timeline, so large majority of our clients opt for Canvas and consider a redesign post-launch.
With the detailed build plan in hand, the focus shifts to your Airdev build team, which builds and tests the complete application in weekly milestones.
Your PM will manage a team consisting of a lead developer, UI assembler, and QA specialist. Each week, the team builds and tests the features we have designated for that milestone, and delivers the working app along with testing instructions so you can confirm everything is working as expected. Your PM will hold a live delivery call with you to make sure we’re aligned and ready to proceed with the following milestone.
This stage ends when a full version of your app — with all features internally tested by Airdev — is ready for your final review before launch!
Even the most basic software products have complexity under the hood, and can take some time to fully test and confirm. For every build, we provide a 30-day window of coverage from our team to confirm, launch, and support the application.
When we turn the app over to you, our internal team has finished our QA process, so the first step is for you to thoroughly review every aspect of the tool and flag anything that is not built according to the confirmed scope. We have a nifty widget so you can mark up the app itself to create tickets, which we clarify and resolve.
When you're ready to go live, we deploy your app on your custom domain and transfer all credentials and IP rights you. Celebrations and AirHugs for everyone! Any remaining time in the 30-day window is extra support just in case you spot anything that slipped through the cracks.
As you approach the end of your “review and launch” period, your Client Success manager will contact you to chat about what comes next. For most clients, launch is just the beginning since app generally must evolve in response to user feedback.
We offer two forms of post-launch support: (1) one-time capacity to build discrete features, and (2) ongoing monthly capacity to maintain and build features over time from the roadmap. The former is typically best for early-stage clients on a budget, and the latter is best for more mature clients with a robust roadmap and need for constant support.
Overall, we recognize that your journey and needs can be unpredictable. Our goal is to give you control of when and how you use your Airdev team to get there.
No-code offers a faster, less costly alternative to traditional software development done using conventional coding languages. No-code tools use a visual development environment that includes point-and-click/drag-and-drop functionality to arrange an app’s interface, allowing users to create apps without writing a single line of code. This empowers users with no prior coding knowledge to get a visual representation of an app and create its logic using plain words or choosing predefined options.
Bubble is a no-code visual programming platform designed to help you build software and applications without code. It specializes in responsive web and mobile apps with dynamic databases and complex functionality. This differs from other no-code platforms like Webflow, which focus on front-end design for static websites. Bubble is open-ended, and like a traditional programming language, there's no fixed set of possibilities to the type of product you can build. This means you don’t have to work within the rails of a specific use-case. Read more about the benefits of building on Bubble.
The reality is that there’s no fixed answer to this question. It all depends on your project’s requirements, business needs, in-house skill sets, budget, flexibility, and time. But generally speaking, agencies offer more quality assurance and guidance from a project’s start to finish. If you are non-technical and software development is fairly new to you, agencies are a great option. They will take care of everything with their own resources, guiding you from project start to finish with minimal time investment on your part. On the other hand, freelancers can offer a lower cost and more flexibility. If you have experience with software development, as well as the know-how and time to scope, design, and project manage your own product, freelancers can work well for you. Read more about the pros and cons of Bubble agencies vs. freelance Bubble developers.
We price our projects based on how much effort they are going to take. The key factors are how much functionality you're looking to build, how complex the functionality is, and whether you we use our design framework or implement a custom design. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to get a quote for your project, or read more about Airdev’s approach to pricing here.
Depending on your needs and goals, it can take anywhere from 1-3 months to launch your no-code app. For example, if you’re a new startup with a limited budget looking to build your MVP to validate your concept, we’ll take the time upfront to align on exact specifications for the build. This can allow you to launch your product in approximately 3 months.
On the other hand, if you’re a venture studio on a strict deadline to launch an MVP app for a corporate client to unlock further investment, we’ll do light scoping beforehand. We’ll use an iterative build process to define as we go, allowing you to be faster to market. This can take approximately 1.5 months. Read more about Airdev’s approach to product timelines.
Yes. We always design apps to optimize for scale, based on our understanding of the potential features and user behavior our client envisions. The Bubble technology is built to scale, with the ability to upgrade server capacity as needed (including migrating to a dedicated AWS cluster) to service a growing user base. Bubble provides simple dashboards and notifications to track app capacity usage to help you adjust as needed.
Yes. Bubble is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), which is itself compliant with certifications such as SOC 2, CSA, ISO 27001, and more. All data behind Bubble apps is stored in the cloud using AWS and is generally hosted on AWS West Region (Oregon, US) which maintains a state-of-the-art security infrastructure. Below are more of Bubble’s security features:
You own the rights to your concept, your application, and all user-generated data created through the app. Airdev retains the ownership of the IP for our predesigned page and element templates that we use across multiple projects. More details on this distinction can be found in the client contract you can review before approving a build.
Yes, you can come back to us at any point after the initial build for additional work. You can request ad-hoc updates or sign up for a monthly plan, which will come with a certain amount of team capacity.
There are a few categories of tools that we can't help with:
- Fully native mobile apps (e.g. Whatsapp or Uber) - though web-based mobile apps are supported
- Existing products written in code
- Apps that need to work without an internet connection
