Why we build on Bubble

Airdev's mission is to enable non-coders to bring their ideas to life. Since most of our clients are, we picked a platform that would be easy for them to live on once we hand things over. Bubble is the clear choice because it allow you to build customizable web apps with pixel-perfect designs.

The Problem

Software is eating the world... but software development is broken

Software powers today’s economy but the way it is created is still stuck in the dark ages. Writing millions of lines of code to build products results in a process that is slow, expensive, unreliable, and inaccessible to most. Those familiar with software development know to expect:

6-12 months to hire

With nearly 1 million unfilled developer positions in the US alone, building a team requires months of recruitment efforts and deep pockets.

Icon displaying a business briefcase

3x budget & timeline overrun

Development projects are notorious for running well past deadlines and budgets. Insiders refer to the "rule of pi" — multiply the original estimate by 3.14...

Icon displaying multiple people

50% - 80% failure rate

Even small development efforts face complexity, technical hurdles, scope creep, and other project risks. Most attempts fail to launch a viable product.

Our process takes lean to the next level, enabling startups and enterprises to get to market quickly to validate and learn.

Scoping

Before we break ground on a build, we create a detailed scope doc with descriptions and wireframes. This allows our team to know exactly what success is, and for you to know exactly what you are getting. Taking the time to get fully aligned enables us to hit every build deadline and ensure you like what you get at the end.

Development

We build in weekly development sprints, each with a concrete deliverable set beforehand. During a build week, you can relax knowing the team is hard at work building features according to the official scope doc. After each milestone, your PM reviews progress live and collects feedback, so you can make sure everything is going according to plan.

Review

Our 30-day review period is designed to ensure you launch your app with confidence. During this period, you can test every aspect of your app and flag any issues for us to resolve before launch. When you're ready to launch, we deploy your app and hand over full IP ownership so you are in control.

Support

No product is complete after the initial build — your app must evolve in response to user feedback. Your PM is on call to help you scope out follow-on builds or setup an ongoing support plan to tackle your product roadmap over time. A startup's journey is unpredictable, so we give you control of when and how you use your Airdev team to get there.

Client success STories

Douglas Jeffrey

We pride ourselves on going the extra mile, and having to rely on developers to deliver was incredibly stressful to us in the past. Taking a project like this that used to take us 6 months, and being able to launch in 6 weeks has been invaluable to us and our clients.

We relaunched HP for Education to help 30k schools upgrade equipment and access support services through a provider marketplace.

Phil Meachin

Airdev has built a system that's allowed us to scale to hundreds of millions of dollars of loans per year, with tens of thousands of reps. Without them we wouldn't have been able to develop that core product nearly as quickly as we have.

We built a multi-sided custom CRM solution to help Dividend Finance book hundreds of millions in loans for solar panels each year.

Andrés Vélez

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.

We built tax management software for LATAM that supported 20k daily users and launched a successful YCombinator bid for Tributi founders.

Madeline Dangerfield-Cha

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.

We helped Mon Ami launch their 2-sided marketplace providing community support for elders, leading to successful VC funding and growth.

David Vitek

Working with Airdev was key to our strategy of building out a marketplace for kids activities. What would have once taken 6 months to build, we managed to get to market in 6 weeks. Airdev were very responsive and able to work through complicated challenges in a simplified way.

We helped Kidsbook launch a feature-rich event booking marketplace for kids' activities.

FAQ

Common questions

Will my application scale?

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.

Will my application be secure?

Yes. All app data is stored on industry-standard Amazon Web Services (AWS) servers, which companies like Netflix use to manage their sensitive data. Data is encrypted at rest, all changes are logged for auditing, and role-based privacy rules determine what data is visible to which users. Apps support SSL encryption (i.e., https:// rather than http://), which offers an additional layer of data security. For apps requiring the transfer of sensitive personal medical records, our apps cannot yet be HIPPA compliant. We are happy to answer specific questions about security as you get started on your project.

How much will my application cost to build?

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!

Who owns the IP rights to my application?

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.

Is Airdev able to support and extend my application as it grows?

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.

What technology will my application be built on?

We build on the latest visual programming framework, Bubble, which allows us to build incredibly quickly and flexibly with minimal technical input. This reduces the cost and headache to our clients, and increases app stability out of the gate. Bubble itself is written in CoffeeScript running on Node.js, uses Postgres databases hosted on AWS, and exposes POST or GET APIs for third-party connections. The app can be easily connected to external APIs and the app's database can be easily exported.

What are the limitations? What can you not build?

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
If you're not sure whether we can do what you need, we would be happy to help you find out!
