Build, lead and mentor.

Time to bolster your team?

Big or small, it’s very common for businesses of all shapes and sizes to need help delivering on their goals.

Chances are, whatever problem you’re facing, we’ve been there and done that before. Let us share our knowledge in design, technology and product thinking to help bolster your team and reach your goals faster.


There are lots of reasons why you might need to Boost your team. You could have a looming deadline, a skills gap within your team or you might be growing and want help steering team practices in the right direction.

Whatever it is, we’ll make sure that the Cogent people you work with have the skills and expertise you need to deliver fast and high quality results.

Supercharge Delivery

Accelerate your team’s day-to-day delivery capacity, or progress a side-project your existing team don’t have capacity to pick up.


We know that delivering the best result for your business requires a collaborative approach, and you can rest easy knowing that Cogent people will hit the ground running from day one.

Specific Expertise

We’ll discuss where you’re at and what you’re trying to achieve, then suggest the right mix of skills across development, design and product management.

Lasting Impact

We’ll provide hands-on mentoring in specific skills while we’re working with your team, leaving them with the capability and confidence to continue without us.


Tell us about the business goals and challenges you’re facing, and together we’ll work out which of our people are the right fit. Everyone on the Cogent team comes preloaded with what it takes to deliver great software; they’re outcome-oriented, goal focused and care passionately about the work that they put out into the world.

Our people keep an eye on the big picture – your business. We’ll work side-by-side with your team so we’re all on the same page, every step of the way. This means that people throughout the team are making decisions which contribute to the outcomes you value most.


Technologies we love using:

We’ve got a bunch of experience and strong track record working with:


Ruby on Rails

  • We engaged Cogent to help with a critical development program. We embedded two experienced Cogent Devs into our existing teams. The work they did was great, and they left a legacy behind of more capable, better-functioning teams. This was one of the best tech engagements I’ve ever seen — small but very powerful. It was the best consulting money we’ve ever spent.

Expertise at your fingertips

Breathe easy knowing you’ll be working with a Melbourne based team who’ve done this before, many times. Working at your place or ours, we’ll guide you through the process, and be no more than a shoulder tap away when you have questions.


    As digital product design experts, Cogent designers have deep experience across user experience research, user interface design and branding. They’ll be the one leading user research sessions, sketch shops and visually bringing your product to life.


    Your dedicated product manager is there to help you realise your vision and get the outcomes you need. They’ll work with you to develop the strategy, roadmap, and feature priorities for your product, and guide your decision making when you need it.


    You’ll be working with developers who’ve built software for some of Australia’s most successful businesses. Typically, our coding skillset covers Ruby, JavaScript and AWS.

  • We didn’t have huge budgets. I wish we did. We didn’t. But we knew what we wanted and so we were able to find a way to do a lot for a little.

Whether we work with you for three months or three years, the aim is that you’ll achieve your business goals faster and to a higher quality than you otherwise would have.

We love getting software into the hands of your users and seeing your project succeed. Some the most common results clients experienced are:

  • A lift in the team’s day-to-day delivery capacity
  • A side-project finally gains momentum
  • New product opportunities are recognised
  • A boost in team morale, collaboration, and learning
  • Existing team members gain new skills and confidence
