Our community of technologists thinks disruptively to deliver pragmatic solutions for our clients' most complex challenges. We are curious minds who come together as collaborative and inclusive teams to push boundaries, free to be ourselves and make our mark in tech.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Our developers have been contributing code to major organizations and open source projects for over 25 years. They’ve also been writing books, speaking at conferences and helping push software development forward, changing companies and even industries along the way. We passionately believe that software quality is driven by open communication, review and collaboration. That’s why we’re such vehement supporters of open source and have made significant contributions to open source tools for testing, continuous delivery (GoCD), continuous integration (CruiseControl), machine learning and healthcare</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">.&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As consultants, we </span><a href=""><span style="font-weight: 400;">work with our clients</span></a> <span style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;to ensure we’re evolving their technology and empowering adaptive mindsets to meet their business goals.
