An Insider's view of Headspring

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are open, friendly, and down to business. You see pictures of past events, the jigsaw puzzle in progress, our bowling trophies, and also focused, heads-down work happening at the desks. We have friendly competitions that keep people engaged and having fun when they take a quick break from developing great software for our clients.


Senior Consultant

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every project is a chance to do something different. Sometimes we're adopting cutting edge tools and frameworks in a new code base and defining best practices, other times we might be helping migrate an ancient mission critical app in some now obscure language to a modern platform without breaking the way people use it. I never stop learning!


Principal Consultant

What makes someone successful on your team?

Solving hard business problems with technology and being curious is key to success at Headspring. We invest a lot of time and energy in building our client’s capabilities to ensure they sustain success. When I joined Headspring, I was looking for an environment that provided intellectual stimulation and fast-paced action and Headspring delivers.


VP, Service Delivery

What is your vision for the company?

I want Headspring to be a place where our team can grow faster than they could anywhere else, and where they can help to deliver great software that transforms organizations and improves lives. We're growth minded, both as a business and as a team. I want to work every day to create an environment where all of that is possible.


Founder & CEO

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the most exciting aspects of what we do is how we help our clients take a step back and learn how tech can make their whole organization better-to gain faster insights, to train people more quickly, and to be more responsive to their own customers. Tech doesn't have to just be a company problem to be solved, it can be a turbocharger.
