The Bunker Labs, a community of the US military veterans had a platform for active duty military & veterans who want to start their own businesses and jumpstart the next chapter in their life. Their website was supposed to provide their target audience with learning opportunities for free. However, the platform wasn’t really functional and required a serious upgrade. That’s why they came to a digital agency that, in their turn, decided to outsource part of the work to us.
We developed Back End from scratch and integrated it with the existing Web layout. The client wanted a gamified platform with flexible structure, and structuring was the project’s main challenge, because we had to build it from the ground up.
The client demanded all works done in a month and we met the deadline (actually, the work was finished a little bit earlier). Now Bunker In A Box is a fully functional educational web source with a game-based approach. Users learn about entrepreneurship through reading articles, watching, listening to podcasts and doing surveys thus collecting experience and karma points. When certain amount of points is collected, user gets an achievement and can share it on their social media account. Meanwhile, website structure is very flexible allowing different types of content organized in stages and substages in multiple ways.
