We’re a company of 3 full-time (soon to be 4!) and 2 part-time employees. All of us have an entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude to get the job done. We all work hard on the clock but respect and offer employees an outstanding work/life balance where time off, side project work, and part-time businesses are fully supported.
We’re significant advocates for open source software and many of our products directly support the open source community.
