About the Team

Our Ops team works in a dynamic environment that provides new challenges every day so we stay open-minded and constantly evaluate new tools and technologies in the quest to improve our methods. Developers will come to us for advice so you’ll not only monitor the systems but actually be part of the process from the start, making sure we build it right from the ground up. If you have a DIY approach and always seek to do better, we’d love to chat!
