“We’ve built hundreds of products over the last decade for clients of all sizes and purposes: ecommerce, media, social, education, Fintech, and more.”
Smartphones have become an inseparable part of our daily lives. Brilliant apps are created for the smart devices, and the mobile app market is growing at an enormous rate. There is an ocean of application existing now, and in this ocean, HappyFunCorp is generating its mark by building thoughtful products which people want to use.
Born With Spirit!!
Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, HappyFunCorp is a product engineering firm. It was formed because of the massive need to build good quality products. The founders of the company, Will Schenk and Benjamin Schippers saw the opportunity and started HappyFunCorp in 2012. Its first product was a large cloud based international education framework that enabled a new type of learning within an exciting new type of technology web infrastructure.
The company has built over 170 products since its inception. It has gone through large growth periods and learned over time how to staff and think about each engineering project in order to optimize output with high quality communication. It started with a deep focus in startups but over the years has evolved to focus on larger fortune 500 companies. Over the years, HappyFunCorp has helped define quality product engineering for mobile, the web and most recently the entire living room experience for popular set top boxes.
“Every project we do is different, and we aren’t afraid to tailor our process towards what actually works, rather than rely on a fixed playbook. We care about results – the happiness of our clients and users – not about dogma.”
