Pumex Computing is now in its second year of business and we are growing at a phenomenal rate, My partner and I embarked on this venture because we saw an opportunity to bring core values that are often overlooked in the software development industry. We believe in creating an employee-centric, value based organization that puts employee and customer satisfaction at the top of our priorities. I read a great quote from Richard Branson, and I’m paraphrasing a bit here, “If you take care of your employees and care about their happiness, they will care about keeping your customers happy.” That is the type culture we are looking to create within our company. A few of our key accomplishments to this point:

  • Increased revenue every quarter since we started the company
  • Established loyal and fantastic clients in the non-profit & trade association markets.
  • Gained a license to hunt in the Federal government with the award of a GSA Schedule in January and working on several large IDIQ’s this year.
  • Recently started development on a new finance app for consumers.
