A national leader in software development, Band of Coders will now offer premier UX and UI design through the Toolbox brand
Atlanta, GA — Band of Coders, LP, a leading software development and engineering agency, announces the acquisition of Atlanta-based Toolbox No. 9, Inc. (“Toolbox”): a company specializing in User Experience & User Interface Design and Development (UX/UI) for website and software applications. Combining Band of Coders’ engineering services with Toolbox’s design expertise, the acquisition allows both companies to offer more balanced, full-scale services to new and existing customers.
Headquartered in Atlanta, GA, Toolbox offers UX/UI design services to help companies increase user engagement, power high-level marketing, and provide optimal user experiences. Specific services include designing user interfaces, optimizing front-end and API technology, and supporting teams through planning and implementation.
Moving forward, Toolbox will continue servicing new and existing clients directly through the Toolbox brand, and in addition to its current service offerings, will also provide full-stack software development and engineering capabilities through Band of Coders. This will allow Band of Coders to add UX and UI design to its current lineup of software and digital product development services.
According to Bobby John, CEO of Band of Coders: “Band of Coders is always listening to our clients’ needs and evolving our services to address them. With the accelerated pace of change and global competition, our clients were looking for help understanding their users and testing design concepts at a level beyond what our current engineering team could offer. When I shared this challenge with Jason, founder of Atlanta’s leading UX/UI agency, Toolbox, he immediately saw how, together, we could help our clients build faster and better. We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Toolbox, which will bring together world-class design thinking and UI development with our modern full-stack software engineering experience. For the last 20 years, Band of Coders has been bringing product ideas to life. Now, thanks to Toolbox’s amazing team and experience, our clients will be able to launch products with excellent user experiences—as well as a secure, scalable, and maintainable codebase.”
With the completion of the acquisition, Jason Rhoades, Founder and President of Toolbox, has been appointed Senior Managing Partner of Band of Coders. Of the acquisition, Rhoades says: “I am thrilled to bring our companies together. Toolbox and Band of Coders were combined to unite our respective expertise—a true yin and yang of design and development for digital products. This acquisition enables Toolbox to further our mission of providing the best User Experience to the most innovative, rapidly growing companies in the world.”
