We Solve Hard Problems

We are from places like Facebook, Yahoo!, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google, where we earned out stripes working on big data problems. Many of us are regular contributors to the open source community. We accept big challenges with a smile.

We Collaborate

We come together to make things work. We are a small, close-knit team that behaves like a family. We not only solve hard problems, we learn from each other and solve them together. We are not afraid to wear different hats whenever required.

Work Hard and Play Hard

We enjoy ourselves whenever we can. We take field trips to celebrate milestones and successes. We celebrate every birthday with drinks and a cake. We keep the kegerator full. We love our pets and always welcome them in the office.
