Based in Addison, Texas, projekt202, a company that focuses on mobile, web, and workplace software design, has acquired Big Nerd Ranch, an Atlanta-based web and mobile app developer. The announcement is part of projetk202’s expansion to the Southeast.
“With a diverse talent base in a large, vibrant market, Atlanta is an ideal expansion opportunity for us, and Big Nerd Ranch has a strong reputation nationwide as thought leaders helping teams successfully gain the required skills to design and build digital solutions,” projekt202 CEO and co-founder David Lancashire said in a statement. “As more organizations look to adopt experience-driven methods, we also recognize that Big Nerd Ranch’s expertise in training is needed to help companies truly transform and compete in today’s marketplace,” he added.
Established in 2001, Big Nerd Ranch, through its boot camps, books, and more, has helped the greater Atlanta community with coding and other software developing training. Training Bootcamps for Android, iOS, Web UI, Python, React, and other systems have been taken care of by the developer.
“As our clients face the increasing demands of an ever discriminating marketplace for their digital products, we’re excited that we can now offer them a wider range of services, as well as the opportunity to scale our world-class training across projekt202’s client base,” Big Nerd Ranch CEO Stacy Henry said in a statement. “Together, we will have an undeniable impact on Atlanta-area organizations, helping them deliver better customer experiences and achieve success through experience-driven transformation,” he added.
Big Nerd Ranch, back in 2012, had collaborated with Highgroove Studios, a backend solutions developer for small businesses. Ranch doubled its headquarters in East Atlanta almost after a year. At present, the company employs 110 people.
projekt202 has branches in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Seattle in addition to its current presence in Atlanta. The company expanded to Asia most recently and employed more than 450 people worldwide.
projekt202 was established in 2003 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amdocs. Big brands and Fortune 500 firms, including 7-Eleven, Capital One, Dell, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, Samsung Electronics, and The Container Store, are some of the renowned clients of projekt202.
