Who We Are
Busy Noggin is a focused web agency of five developers skilled in building large websites and web applications for clients like The Museum of Science and Industry and Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. Our developers have loads of experience in enterprise-level content management, complex web applications, front-end coding, mobile development, UX and so forth.
Our people are smart, but down-to-earth. No prima donnas or know-it-alls here. Sure, we have all the skills a development shop should, but more importantly, we have a knack for figuring out the complicated stuff and making it work.
WORDS WE WORK BY
Play well with others
Web projects are a team effort. We enjoy working with other professionals—designers, brand managers, content specialists, SEO pros, in-house programmers and so forth. We excel in being good team players.
Always be learning
Busy Noggin was name chosen to reflect a reality. We are continually learning and thinking of better ways of doing our work.
Build it right
There are many shortcuts that can be taken in this business, but most are not in the long-term interest of the client. We insist on taking no shortcuts that are not in the client’s best interest.
See it through
Large projects can get tough at times which is why dependability is such a critical quality in a programmer. It is amazing, yet sad, how often we have been brought in to take care of a project another developer has bailed on.
Connect developers directly to clients
We maintain a flat organization and keep developers in direct contact with clients. Eliminating middle managers produces quicker results and better solutions.
Care about the work & the client
We throw ourselves into our work and are invested in the results. And it always surprises us how close we personally become with the clients we work with when just months before they were strangers.
What We Do
We are experts in planning and developing websites with lots of content and custom functionality backed by an enterprise content management system (CMS). We’ve completed complex projects involving customizing the CMS, adding powerful search, multiple languages and robust workflows for data management or editorial processes.
We love solving problems for unique client needs, and custom development is where we thrive. With years of experience across a wide array of languages, frameworks, and content management systems, our diverse team is equipped to plan and build custom solutions that are reliable and maintainable.
Mobile Web Sites & Applications
“Making it work on mobile” is no longer a nice-to-have feature, it’s a baseline requirement. We’ve built mobile and responsive sites for our clients, as well as, custom apps for iOS and Android. We can help you evaluate approaches to serving your mobile users and then build the best solution for you that works across devices.
E-commerce is mission-critical with dollars on the line. We can work with you to identify your requirements then recommend and build the best technical approach whether it involves an existing system like Magento or a full-on custom application.
And yes, we can work with other agencies and in-house departments.
