We’ve been in the world of IT for so long that if you added our collective years we’d be older than Yoda! We’ve found the great people we’ve worked with in the past and the up and comers of the future and we’ve created a workplace that is inclusive; in other words we enjoy each other’s company. We value transparency and honesty and promote diversity. We look for the same in the clients and partners who we work with; we make no excuses for being selective when choosing our customers.
