Why ProObject?

A culture of people with a passion for technology, career growth, and training
  • Humble, smart, and a consultative approach to how we serve our mission customers. To us, is not about bragging and "rock star engineer" status.
  • If you love technology, learning, and growing in your career, we'd make a great team.
  • ProObject was one of the first software engineering companies (many moons ago), that put our money where our mouth is: Robust training ($5250 per year) and certifications for all of our team members.
AWS Select Consulting Partner
  • As an AWS select consulting partner, we have tons of training and certs with AWS if you're ready to get into cloud engineering and expand your career.
Family-oriented, family-feel, and respect for your time
  • We're a family-owned company and we care about all of our employees. The difference is easy to see with us compared to other firms.
  • We also don't believe in concepts like "work-life integration." For us, we believe in balance and support for your "outside of work" life. We respect that time.
  • Comp time available
  • Care about certain causes? We care about what our employees are into. Matching contributions and special events to make our community better
