We are a carefully crafted team that generates business value
through an effective and creative use of thought and technology.
How are we different?
We are always innovating. This means something very different to a Fortune 500 than it does to a Startup, or Mid-Size Company. Whether it’s building APIs, moving data, automating a process, retiring a legacy system, or creating a brand-new product…we’ve got you covered! We hire people who go above and beyond on every initiative. We are a group of unique individuals who work together to provide thought and quality in everything we do.
We are not interested in adding your logo to the clients’ section of our website like a notch on our belt. We take great care to ensure that you are ultimately served, rather than our own internal goals or bottom line.
We are Creative
We approach each problem with creative minds, yet have the discipline to stay within program bounds with an eye the future. We make sure we understand what you are trying to accomplish, and then apply the best solution.
We do not try to boil the ocean, and believe in execution not idle words. We build lean. We spend time delivering quickly and incrementally. We give you exactly what you needed. On time. On budget.
We Have Process
We are extremely efficient when it comes to writing, compiling, and deploying code. We have created a sophisticated continuous integration process, that sets us apart from other firms, and enables us to be highly efficient.
We Produce Value
The heroics of individuals will only take you so far. We rely on deeply engrained processes and methodologies to produce high quality solutions again and again. In business and technology, predictability is appreciated.
We Operate Like a Factory
We are human, but believe in a methodical approach when we are manufacturing value for your business.
