Who we are?

Bad Dinosaur was founded in 2013 to solve an industry-wide problem. Having worked as a developer both as a freelancer and in-house, Kyle had grown frustrated with big agencies that worked slowly, and didn't include the client in the development process. Together with co-founder Russ they established an agency that puts the client first.

At Bad Dinosaur you work closely with our designers and developers to understand the problem and for us to collaborate on a solution.

In the last few years, Bad Dinosaur has experienced a great deal of growth and has been able to offer more services to help businesses and startups create amazing digital products efficiently and cost effectively.

Profile strength: Average

Average is better than “below average”, but not “good”, at least not on TechBehemoths. Bad Dinosaur is one of those companies that might deliver some projects, but are not convincing enough. For this reason, their profile strength is average. Advice: get in touch with Bad Dinosaur if you have a great intuition. Otherwise, go the extra mile and find a slightly better ranking company. We have 5,000 strong and excellent ones from a total of 43,000+.

    I can't recommend Bad Dinosaur strongly enough. The team are very friendly, knowledgeable and great to work with - they make everything easy to understand and worked with us to strengthen our product idea. I was always impressed that for every meeting we had they turned up with new ideas to help push the product forward. A true partner in the early development of our product.

    We've been working with them since August 2018, and our YouK app has gone from a concept to a level of maturity that we are delighted with. Great people - its all that matters.

    Excellent company I would recommend over and over again. If you have a tech idea in your head and want to bring it to life then Bad Dinosaur are the guys to make it happen. I spent nearly a year searching for developers before I found Bad Dinosaur. Don’t make the same mistake I did.

    What a great team to work with. They didn't build what we asked for - they built something better. Through challenge and collaboration they helped us to develop our thinking - resulting in a much better system than we anticipated. And all delivered on time and within budget. The team are friendly, professional and fun. We are looking forward to phase two already.
