Bitbean is a driven, get it done, all local custom software development company. We focus on helping ambitious companies striving to be industry leaders. Our primary service area is the Tri-State including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Rockland County, the Five Towns in Long Island, and beyond. Founded in 2011 on the premise of integrity, teamwork, and excellence, we have an 18,000 sq foot creative office right next door to the Blue Claws Stadium in Lakewood, NJ. We are proud that our entire team is local and we don't offshore any development work to South Asia, Eastern Europe or nearshore to South America.
Bitbean has acquired a name for helping businesses grow exponentially because of our trademark Shifting Perspectives® methodology, exceptional teamwork, and Silicon Valley standard of tech excellence. Woven into our corporate DNA is the acumen and innovative thinking of the NYC Jewish business community, driving us to relentlessly raise the bar on what custom software can achieve for all companies who are striving to be industry leaders.
Shifting Perspectives® requires a different way of thinking. We’re mental tinkerers. All assumptions are left by the wayside.
We decry the accepted. Scoff at the formulaic. Reproach the processes. We are constantly shifting perspectives, seeing your business through many prisms, uncovering the complex interconnecting pathways that are hidden, yet determining factors in the results you achieve. We’re in a determined, relentless search for the enduring solution that sees around corners, peers deep into the future, and continues to operate effectively long beyond any rational expectation. The solution where your vision and reality ultimately meet.
The ultimate truth.
We listen more
We challenge again
The heart of our business is teamwork
Teamwork isn't a buzzword.
At Bitbean, team structure is part of our ethics. We are very rigorous in our consideration of who should be a part of the team for your project. We don’t assemble a team ad hoc. Every team member is selected for their experience, expertise, skills and compatibility with the other team members. Every team member is local to our Lakewood, New Jersey office. No out-sourcing, whether in the US or off-shore. This creates a cohesive, smoothly functioning team that optimizes results.
Breathing life into your product to improve or create a whole new one is what we do best. Through our Shifting Perspectives® process, we’ll build a solid foundation and product life cycle that matches your vision and unique business model.
- - Establishing a Minimal Viable Product (MVP)
- - Initial Scope for Custom Software Design
- - Assembling the Design Team
- - Research and Analysis
- - Discovery Process: Evaluate Risks, Collaborate, Solve Problems
Every step of the process, product, design and engineering work side by side in a constant give and take. By challenging one another’s ideas, by seeing the project from a range of perspectives, the team gains a 360-degree view of the entire project. Problems are identified, a range of solutions are shared, and the final solution that meets the exacting judgmental evaluation of all team members leads to results that often go beyond your expectations.
