we code web-based applications and experiences... put simply, we build websites using open, and inspired technologies.

What we do

One way you could explain it is to say that we build web-based applications and experiences using solid, user-friendly and inspired technologies. Or, that we make business easier, more dynamic, more efficient and more readily available for our clients. Either way, we like to see our clients win.

We like to work closely with our clients to make sure we understand all the brand and business objectives of the project, whether it be for single-person outfits or global enterprise organisations. In doing so, we’ve developed good relationships with all of our clients and, rather than being a supplier, we feel more like a partner with a shared goal. Our client relationships span many industries and we’re always keen to learn more. In fact, we thrive on it.


Our core services include:

Coding and Development

We expertly wrangle a variety of technologies, matching the right tool for the job. From back-end development to front-end interface design, our experienced coders build custom solutions for the ever-changing demands of web applications.

  • Back-end: Java/J2E, PHP, Perl, Python, Ruby
  • Front-end: XHTML, CSS, Javascript, Ajax, Flash
  • Database: MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite
  • Frameworks: Symfony, Zend, Cake, Rails, Django, CodeIgniter

Website Design

Looks and brains? We like to create websites with both. We can make your site beautiful, professional and a pleasure to peruse, while at the same time employ the latest web technologies to ensure that it’s fast, easy-to-use and functional. With a select group of design partnerships to choose from, we’re able to match style and personality to any given project.

Server Scalability and Optimisation

We build our systems from the ground up, and we have a good understanding of everything that goes into making a web application run smoothly at all times. We’ve been tested by managing support systems for some of Australia's largest and most demanding e-Commerce applications—and come out flying. We have the experience to help you with scalability and optimization, and to ensure your business critical applications are given a head-start from their foundation systems. We can monitor, consult… basically do whatever it takes to make sure your site exceeds all expectations.

  • General Servers: Apache HTTP, Tomcat, Mongrel, lighttpd
  • Database Servers: MySQL, PostgreSQL

Email Marketing

We can provide the tools, consulting services and digital oomph to help email marketing campaigns hit their mark.

Our iTelegraph system puts you back in the saddle, and lets you create and send smart, professional email newsletters with ease.

Content Management Systems

We know our CMS. We have extensive experience working with numerous Content Management Systems, from enterprise installations using OpenCms to simple company Wordpress blogging systems. We love this area so much, we’ve even built our own: Reditype - the first to be developed on on the Symfony framework.

  • General Purpose CMS Systems: OpenCms, Reditype, Drupal
  • Blogging Systems: Wordpress, Radiant, SimpleLog

Search Engine Optimisation

This is wrangling at its finest. Making your website “search engine friendly” requires an intimate understanding of how search engines think. Google loves our web applications because we make every effort to ensure that Google understands what the applications about—and that’s what delivers results, not clever tricks or manoeuvres. Great code and excellent content are the best way to ensure organic rankings in search results.

Maintenance and Monitoring

Sometimes systems buck and kick a little more than expected. Things do fail now and then, and we plan for that inevitability. ‘Worst case’ scenarios are amplified by a lack of planning and monitoring. We think our pragmatic approach to architecture and infrastructure design is the very best and we're thrilled that clients like Nutrimetics Australia trust us with their enterprise ventures.

From secure and robust system foundations to real-time monitoring and support - we know your web applications.

Service Level Agreements

digital Wranglers offers tiered and time-based consulting options, to help deliver continuous availability for enterprise applications as they meet increasingly complex demands.

With enterprise support, projects can be reinforced by guaranteed priority access to an array of highly beneficial project struts.

The purpose of a Service Level Agreement is to define the support relationship between client and digital Wranglers by describing roles, setting expectations and outlining steps to issue resolution.

Why do we love what we do?

We believe that a well-built website can completely transform a business. It can streamline business processes, create cost savings, and increase productivity by strategically exploiting potential efficiencies. It can bring a business to life through the clever use of media and communication. It can help customers make purchasing decisions. And it can take a business outside geographic or time-bound restrictions, by putting you on a global, 24/7 stage. Not bad, hey.
