The team

Our team

We’re able to offer you a quicker time to market for you because we have experts across a diverse range of disciplines including software, hardware, data science, cybersecurity, regulatory affairs and quality, all under the same roof. Collectively, we’re a close-knit team made up of irreverent sandal-wearing Silicon Valley tech types, buttoned-up regulated banker types and manufacturing street-fighter bruiser types. Individually, we’re hula hoopers, jugglers, DJs, kite-surfers and gamers.
