Founded in the spring of 2014, Engine Room Technology provides its clients with complex and high-quality software solutions—with the added assurance that the software it creates is secure. This philosophy of implementing impenetrable software has led to a client base that includes well-known companies and institutions such as Comcast, CertainTeed, and Rutgers University.
Though it’s a very new company, Engine Room is growing quite quickly. “We’ve been growing so fast because we’ve been taking a lot of work on,” shares William Foley, an application developer. “We’ve done a lot of good work and it’s been high-rippling throughout the area. As we do more work, we’re able to reach further to some new clients and get new work.”
The reason Engine Room has been so successful in its first two years is due to its hard-working team. “We’re less than two years old, but the team that we have is made up of people who are just really good at their jobs and really passionate about doing a good job. I think that sets us up for success,” says Lindsey Nice, a project manager.
And in addition to having a very casual culture, Engine Room employees also work in a unique environment that is filled with the buzz of startup life. “What’s really nice about Engine Room,” says Govinda Vyas, a business analyst and project manager, “is that we’re working in a co-working space. It’s nice to hear some other voices, be able to chat with other people [in addition to the Engine Room team].”
“Just seeing all these different teams work so diligently on their own ideas really motivates me,” Vyas adds. “Because we’re all entrepreneurs to some extent, and the people who work here are really driven to get their ideas off the ground.”
