CookiesHQ is a small, dynamic development agency that turns ideas into bespoke digital products. Our studio is based in the technical hub of Bristol, UK, but we work with organisations all around the globe.
CookiesHQ has been with us through each and every iteration of our product for over four years. The advice and expertise they continue to provide have been a fundamental part of us reaching where we are today. Our website has been rock solid and stable from day one, allowing us to confidently focus our efforts on growth”.- Oliver Gosling, co-founder of Card Nest, Bristol-based greeting card e-commerce and subscription app
Partnering with early-stage and growing startups, we prototype, market test, and create websites, apps, marketplaces, voice apps, CRMs, and dashboards. Our mission is to deliver unique products and build strong, lasting partnerships with our clients.
The company was founded in 2011 by husband-and-wife team Nic and Nathalie Alpi. Nic started his first business when he was just 21— so he understands the challenges our clients face every day. Nathalie’s background in marketing and management makes them a perfect fit.
Since then, we have grown organically into a team of 10 talented developers, organisers, and creatives. Our mission hasn’t changed, though: we still aim to produce quality software for businesses, to build strong, lasting partnerships with our clients, and to create a happy, challenging, and supportive workplace for our staff.
In the past 8 years, we have helped dozens of innovative startups get their products off the ground. From the initial brainstorming session to deciding what should be included in their Minimum Viable Product, to supporting them through fundraising rounds and growth, we are their technical partner every step of the way.
Right from the initial session, it was clear that CookiesHQ was the right choice. Their openness is invaluable, far removed from a conventional ‘client-agency’ dynamic”.- -Jon Fletcher, co-founder of Big Clean Switch, social business helping consumers to easily switch to clean energy
We also work alongside growing businesses of all shapes and sizes, by integrating with a bigger team, sharing our development expertise, or by taking the lead within a smaller team to help develop new processes and scale software.
Openness, honesty, and communication are our core values. We listen to our clients, understand their business needs and requirements, and are not afraid to challenge them.
Inside the office, we are creating a flexible working space that nurtures cooperation. We are proud to be a diverse team and our main objective, as well as growing the business, is to allow each and every one of our staff to grow and fulfill their ambitions.
Bristol offers a diverse and supportive environment for tech startups and we feel privileged to be part of this ecosystem. So we take part in and give talks at various local events and groups, we advise and mentor startup founders, and we organise a popular quarterly event, Design / Build / Market, aimed at promoting collaboration between disciplines in the creative and digital industries.
