Abacus Technology has big business experience, without big business inefficiencies. We can tackle any challenge, effectively and with flexibility. As an independently-owned and operated business, we make decisions to exceed customer – not shareholder – expectations.

That's why we – and our customers – think of us as just right. We have the spirit of a small business but the resources, stability, and experience of something larger, by choice.

Our History

It was 1983. Microsoft Word and Lotus 1-2-3 were released. The World Wide Web did not exist. Sally Ride became the first American woman in space. American Motors' Renault Alliance was the Car of the Year.

1983 was also the same year, Dennis Yee, our President, decided to start Abacus Technology. He was the company's lone employee at the time, but since then, he has evolved our company from a one-contract transportation logistics consultancy to a communications and information technology firm with hundreds of employees supporting clients throughout the United States and abroad.

Abacus Technology has a 30-year history of solid, sustained business performance. Our track record of strong, organic growth and profitability —regardless of the state of the economy—is unrivaled. Our success is based on a proven history of outstanding project performance on contracts of all sizes, scope, and challenges. From the start, our reputation mattered, which is why we continue to produce and deliver quality solutions and services that are on-time and within budget.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abacus Technology (San Diego, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    They invited 40+ people on a career day to the office. They extended an invitation to me. Twenty minutes after the planned interview time, they escorted us into a conference room for a 30+ minute group meeting, where the recruiter and CEO spoke to all of us. Then the engineering managers took all the applicants for technical jobs, only 4 of us, where they asked us questions as a group. One engineer flat out told them the situation was entirely unprofessional, and he left the room. They also started the meeting by looking at our resumes for the first time, where they told me that my background was not what they were looking for - an hour into the interview process. I couldn't agree more that this was a unprofessional and unorganized interview process.
