What clients say about Ben Inkster

I would recommend having Ben and his partners to help your company do things with ease and elegance. He does not cut corners and there are many aspects of your project you will not have to ask to be developed as they will be included without your knowing – the mark of a craftsman.


Ben is a knowledgeable and talented service provider. He excels at web design, implementation and server management. He is able to see the big picture and has good understanding of business requirements. I give Ben a high recommendation.


I worked with Ben on a number of projects at Getty Images and he couldn’t have been a better team-mate. He takes ownership of the tasks assigned to him and faces all challenges head on. Case in point, the Category Landing Pages project we were tasked with. He took the development lead on that, built out a number of beautiful pages, and finished it within the given time frame. Besides his on point development skills, he is also just a good guy to be around. I would highly recommend working with this man if you ever get the chance.

Mike Caruso

Ben is a dev with many talents, organized, confident in his abilities, works smart and quickly. Ben and I worked together on numerous Nissan USA projects and I found him to be a great addition to the team along with the fact that he works extremely well in a team or on his own. I would highly recommend him as a great addition to any team!



BenInkster-BonitaSoft-Experto-PartnerI’m Ben Inkster. It’s nice to meet you.

So, you’re looking for a geek. That’s great – geeks are awesome.  I like to describe myself as a “geek in suit’s clothing” because I’m comfortable both in the server room and the boardroom.  I tend to be the guy at the meeting who clarifies concepts rather than the guy tossing out three letter acronyms.

Since you’re looking, here are a few things I have to offer:

Experience – I’ve been programming for 20 years. Take a look at some of my past projects.

Broad Skillset – I’ve worked with dozens of languages and platforms. Check out the (growing) list of tools I’ve used.

Solid Track Record – Here are some of the nice things that clients have had to say.

Management – I manage a small, distributed team. Here’s a podcast episode about how I hired and manage them.

Entrepreneurship – I have built several businesses over the years.  Currently, I have two businesses – Geek Inc. and Bow Tie Websites
