Nothing is better than having a dependable partner that you trust--and that's exactly how we feel about Geekbears. We've been working with them for over 2 years now and we couldn't be happier with the extreme value they've brought to us. Starting a company, building out a concept, business model, and mobile app from scratch can be very scary, overwhelming, and quite frankly, vulnerable for someone who has never done it before. Marcos and Carlos were by our side throughout all the steps of development from beginning UX screens to implementing processes and features, making sure everything was how we intended it every step of the way. They are true PARTNERS. We can't speak highly enough about Geekbears and are so grateful for our partnership. You get so much more than just developers - You get problem solvers, you get a team that takes initiative, sees all the detail, pushes towards future goals and milestones, challenges you to think differently, keeps everyone accountable, maintains transparency with project timeline and cost, and somehow - they are always responsive and accessible when you need them. Seriously - Geekbears is the real deal and we put our name behind them 100% with glowing reviews. Happy to chat with anyone directly that wants to hear more. More...

They did an excellent job creating a interactive website for our rental business. It has the ability to make reservations and take payments. Aldo was our primary point of contact. Aldo is extremely responsive in a very timely manner.  He provided us with links to view tutorial videos to learn the system. I would highly recommend! More...

Geekbears is the perfect name for this company comprised of patient, skillful Geeks who are as loyal as one's favorite Teddy Bear. Marcos and his team of designers (the amazing Joe) and builders (the wonderful Aldo and Eder) came through on every deadline, and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the site achieved my goals. This website represents a new entrepreneurial direction for me and Marcos was able to support my goals by offering excellent business advice as well as contacts to his fellow UC students for help with some of the leg work. GeekBears works with Word Press. I was wary of going with a Word Press site given that it's more complicated than Square Space or Wix. I considered going with an e-commerce site like Shopify. Marcos explained the pros and cons of all these options. In deciding how to move forward I weighed out the costs vis a vis hassle potential vis a vis aesthetics and decided to work with Marcos as I trusted that Geekbears would be a hassle free experience at a fair price. And indeed it was.Marcos VERY PATIENTLY taught me how to edit my Word Press site (which is remarkably easy).   I'm a filmmaker and a small business owner. For the past 20 years I've hired various groups and individuals to design and implement my websites. Working with Geekbears has been the least stressful and most satisfying experience. For one thing Marcos does this thing that few people twice his age know how to do - it's called "listening". And for such a young man he is also remarkably empathetic around how very stressful creating a website can be.Once Geekbears was paid and the site was up Marcos and his team continued to check in on my site. On his own initiative Aldo reminded me to correct a section that I had forgotten to take care of. And one morning, at 2am, I screwed something up with a Word Press edit - and with one text to Marcos his team repaired the issued within hours. I would work with Geekbears again in a heartbeat.

We used to Geekbears to design my new nonprofit website for Single Parent Advocate.  They were very patient with me as I have a busy schedule and designed the best site that I could even imagine - bringing to life functional ideas that I didn't know Were possible.  I highly recommend them.  Marcos and his team were fast, friendly, reliable, and very imaginative in making my website come to life!  It will help serve families that need resources, encouragement, and hope.

Our startup, dumpling, partnered with Geekbears to build a mobile focused web-app for our MVP.  This required a custom solution beyond your typical Wordpress capabilities, and the Geekbears team didn't disappoint. They worked with us to define the product, from early conception, to initial wireframes, all the way to the final deployed solution. In each step of the process, the team took the time to understand our direction, asked great questions to clarify any questions or doubts, provided suggestions to make it better, and worked tirelessly to complete the project. They were always available when we needed them, were quick to address any bugs/mistakes that arouse, and were an absolute joy to work with. I'd highly recommend the team! More...

This team is tremendous. They're extremely solution-driven, and work relentlessly to make the technology do the heavy-lifting, which is the goal of any CMS project. During the project's lifecycle, the team has been extremely responsive, supportive, and have gone the extra mile in providing exemplary service. From all the different facets of a project; the owner, the project manager, and the developers - everyone has been beyond impressive. As an owner of a digital agency myself - I appreciate a partner like GeekBears. We truly feel like one team working towards one common goal. I look forward to working with them much more going forward. More...

I had the great pleasure working with Geekbears last summer in creating my restaurant's website. Throughout the process, Geekbears were professional, courteous, and patient with what I wanted in my website. They always followed up with me about anything and the end result was a website I am happy with. I would definitely recommend any business small/local or big to hire them. -Ake More...

A++And I'm not easy to please.  Let me give you a clue to these guy's level of ability and professionalism.  Please understand that I cannot dumb down my response as I think it's most important to communicate depth rather than understandable by the masses. We, per Geekbears (GB) direction, setup a development site (dev) and created a process for performing massive updates to the development site and thoroughly testing in Dev prior to pushing the button to automatically update the Production site (prod).  GB also setup automatic site backups AND hardened security to stop intrusions from China, Russia and others. The reduction of old WordPress plugins and the automation of existing plugins also helped lock down the site.  GB worked flawlessly with our web designer to perfectly implement his creatives.GB is the best.  I highly recommend them for all the above.One word of advise to potential clients: It's your responsibility to write down your requirements and hold meeting to insure your concepts are clearly understood, to test all changes in dev and then, and only then, approve them for production.GB is a fantastic company and I am lucky to have such a highly professional team as a valued partner.Founder at Help4Access.comPS: We've completed over $10,000 of work with GB in 2016/2017 without a single glitch.
