A few reasons why you may not like us:

  • We’re not a sexy Silicon Valley startup. That’s just not our thing – we’re an established firm that has proven success.

  • You’re not the collaborative type. We’re solving pretty heady challenges. We bring ideas to the table and we work together to solve these challenges. If you’re looking to hide out and do your own thing, this might not be the right fit for you.

  • The team is even more amazing. You’ll work with people who are as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You’ll be managed by the best, too.
  • Your success will be recognized and appreciated. You’ll be able to see your direct impact on our growth. You won’t be just another cog in the wheel.
  • We work with some cool technologies. Some examples are Ubuntu Linux, VMware vSphere, Cisco Nexus Switches/Routers, Python, Elasticsearch, Dell PowerEdge Hardware, Windows Server, Storage Area Networks (SASNs), & Saltstack
