About Bear Group
We Are Bear Group
Bear Group is a 25-person development firm based in Seattle. Since 2007, we’ve been dedicated to building and supporting websites that help organizations delight customers, streamline their operations, and grow. Think of us as seasoned stage hands, working behind the scenes to ensure your show goes off without a hitch.
We focus exclusively on custom website development, enterprise commerce, and related integrations. This focus enables us to deliver a superior level of operational integrity and attention to detail in everything we do. We come to the table as enthusiastic but ego-less collaborators, wholly dedicated to making this piece of your brand and marketing puzzle fit perfectly.
Our approach is grounded in strong, transparent communication and a deep respect for our clients. You’ll always get our best council, and we’ll always act in your best interest. Count on us to demystify the web development process and ensure you’re with us at every step.
We Build Websites & Relationships
We’re humbled to work in a field that’s at the heart of the 21st century economy, and to continue to expand and maintain the digital frontier for our clients. We look to build long term relationships and set our partners up to achieve long-term goals, so we’re especially proud that our average client tenure is over six years.
Greg Bear had a front-row seat as the internet became the center of the economy. He built his first web page in 1994, led startups through the Seattle internet boom, and launched Bear Group in 2007. His dedication to exceptional digital experiences and client service has remained central throughout.
There’s something pretty special about the group. Along the way, through participating in things like bands, theater productions, and sports teams, we’ve discovered the joy of working creatively together. Each individual contributes something meaningful. We might not always know the outcome, but we trust the process, our collective knowledge, and each other to get there.
Seattle Roots, Distributed Team
We’re US-based, with a core group in Seattle and a tight-knit distributed team working across four time zones. Our unique way of working makes coding skills that are unsurpassed in the Pacific Northwest available when you need them.
