Wastebits is a startup out of Akron, Ohio that is creating software to streamline the waste profiling process. They have created a web-based platform that connects generators, waste facilities and service providers for tracking, monitoring, and controlling waste activities.

When we started working with them they had four full-time employees and a long list of requested features from their clients. They are friends of ours and we were extremely grateful to be able to help build out their company's technology early on.


Our Work

  • Ruby on Rails
  • Technology Consulting
  • User Experience Design
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Marketing Support

As their client list grew we were happily able to transition ourselves off of development as they began to hire more developers. Today they have a thriving development team with a solid infrastructure in place.

As they continued to grow, they needed additional help implementing an updated brand as well as their messaging for pitch decks and trade shows. We were able to supplement their design team to meet their deadlines, make decisions based on research, and produce a stronger company identity.

The Wastebits team has worked with Coffee & Code for several years. [We call them] anytime we need to bounce ideas off of systems thinkers, or more firepower to deliver a better experience for our customers.

They are accurate, reliable and dedicated in their ability to understand a problem and collaboratively communicate and deliver a solution your customers will love.

Based on our experience, I can say we trust this team and have no hesitation in saying Coffee & Code is highly recommended.”

The initial development work included Ruby on Rails, while our design work included using Sketch and InVision to rapidly prototype, eye-tracking tools to guide design decisions, and collaboration tools to keep the team on the same page.
