Our Culture

Our special culture is centered on the principles of “Practical Idealism.” This philosophy guides us down the path, between our heart-felt idealism, and the practical tactics required to be a sustainable business that effectively serves each of its stakeholders.

Our Financial Strength

Garnet River is a stable and financially strong company. This firmly positions us for the role of prime contractor. Our financial strengths and our ability to flex makes us an attractive partner to mitigate risk by delivering no or low-cost proofs of concept for our clients.

Our Competitive Advantage

Our sized business brings a compelling price-value proposition. Against larger competitors, we compete based on price, flexibility, and responsiveness. Against smaller, niche providers, based on breadth of services and depth of experience and resources.

Our employees are computer scientists, engineers, business process analysts, project managers, quality assurance specialists, health care experts and software developers.

Low-risk value. Sound impossible?

Yeah, we get it. You’ve heard this before. It sounds a lot like an empty promise. And, honestly, it makes sense why: this industry is very hard to please.

But, that’s because when you’re on the cutting edge of business technology, you’re constantly an edge case. That’s why turnkey solutions stop working for you after a while. That’s why processes get out of control. That’s why the right people in the right job are so hard to find.

We get it. So, we’re not here to sell you something off a shelf.

We’re here to listen, brainstorm, ponder, question, think about throughout the day, invent, fail, test, and create. And we are here to do all that alongside you. We are here, simply to help.

Meet Steve. He is here to put you first.

Steve has led Garnet River for over 20 years with the cultural concept that “people matter the most.”

Meet Michael. Keep him around to keep them out.

Michael is just a little bit obsessed with security and compliance. This means that you don’t have to be, but you can look like it.

Michael Weisberg

There’s a bit of art, a bit of science, and a whole lot of intelligent process evaluation.

Meet Mike. Good thing his head is in the clouds.

No, he isn’t aloof. He is an expert in cloud security, infrastructure, and modular systems thinking. But, he does make a terrible weatherman.

Meet Ken. It’s his job to make your work look good.

It’s not your job to be a software implementation expert. But, that’s exactly what Ken’s job is and he’s excited to get started.
