SPJ Staff

CORE TEAM

SPJ’s software engineers are the finest the industry has to offer. They come to SPJ with industry certifications and years of implementation experience. Then they must pass SPJ’s stringent screening and hands-on testing in the SPJ lab. Finally, they must agree to SPJ’s delivery methodologies that enforce thorough documentation and integrated knowledge transfer. SPJ interviews, on average, nearly 45 candidates for every open position.

We are proud of our engineers and use this section of our website to highlight some of their accomplishments:
