We specialize in developing native mobile applications for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android. We also develop APIs and web-based applications. As a senior-level team we have extensive experience in enterprise grade software and systems architecture.
Absolutely. We provide software and mobile application design as a stand-alone project and as part of all our software development projects. Some companies hire us for UI/UX design, then have the product developed internally.
Yes we do, but only for design and consulting projects where the scope is clear up front. Large projects that span many months, and custom software development, are not a good fit for fixed price. In those cases we provide a fixed weekly price and estimate the number of weeks required – without locking you into a set scope of work upfront.
Expect to invest $20,000 to $35,000 to have your software architected and designed. Then $50,000 and up for custom software development. All-in, we recommend budgets in the low 6-figures to get to version one of a from-scratch software build. If this sounds feasible and you’d like to discuss, please drop us a line.
Expect 3 to 6 months to get to version one. Small projects will be on the low end of that scale, very large projects will be on the high end.
We do, please take a look at Our Work for examples of software we’ve designed and developed for our clients.
No. Our entire team (including all of our developers) is located in the United States. Most are here in Florida where our office is.
We do not outsource locally or abroad. Mobile application design and development is our specialty. Our company founder wrote an article in our blog about why we don’t outsource, which you can read to learn more about our take on this topic.
We rarely take on projects that involve fixing or maintaining code written by other developers. Read our thoughts on that here. If you plan on replacing or rewriting your software, that’s another story, please reach out.
It may be necessary to for us to visit your office as part of a consulting engagement. But, sending our developers to your location for ongoing work is not necessary, and not part of our culture at Big Fish.
No. An NDA is a contract. We only sign contracts with our clients. A confidentiality agreement is part of our Master Services Agreement when you hire us. If you’re concerned about protecting your app idea we wrote some thoughts and advice in our blog. In short: an NDA really isn’t necessary before you hire us.
We do not. Big Fish is a team for hire and we do not participate in profit share, equity deals or other similar arrangements.
If you’re with a company or business that may be interested in hiring Big Fish please contact us so we can answer your questions directly.
