What is a retainer?

Think of a retainer like having a personal designer and developer on speed dial. Together we agree on a fixed fee each month, and in return, you get access to our team and expertise whenever you need it. It's like having a squad on standby, ready to swoop in and save the day whenever you need it.

“Their attitude, knowledge and flexibility gives me reassurance that we are in safe hands.”

Retainer benefits

Fluid time

On occasion we can roll time backwards to cover those busy months while unused time will be rolled forward and can be used for future work.

Fixed monthly rate

The monthly cost will stay the same regardless if hours are brought forward or rolled back to keep your costs stable and predictable.

The time will be allocated for you for the duration of the retainer so you don’t have to worry about capacity and scheduling work in advance.

Quick comms

We usually set up a joint Slack channel for quick communication. This creates an open channel of communication and feels as we are part of the team.

Dedicated Project Manager

You will have your own project manager as your first point of contact to keep you updated on progress.

“I can't rate the team at Code & Wander highly enough”

I can't rate the team at Code & Wander highly enough. We've worked with them on several projects now and each time they've delivered. Alessia and the team are really approachable, friendly and a delight to work with. If you're looking for a development partner that will truly act as an extension of your team then look no further.

“I have already recommended their services to our other brands”

I have been working with C&W for 2+ years now and they have been extremely easy to work with. The team has a positive, can do attitude and enjoys problem solving. Always open to suggestions and new ways of working. It's been a pleasure and I am excited to continue collaborating! I have already recommended their services to our other brands and will always continue to recommend them to others.
