Base2 Solutions – Why Work With Us?


Smart people. Challenging projects. Work that matters. And a work-life balance that’s just right.


Base2 is that rare thing—an absolutely cool place to work that does really interesting projects with great clients. A place that respects your life outside of work.

The Base2 team is a friendly, collaborative tribe that loves working here. They will help you, collaborate with you, and sometimes inspire you with what they know and what they can do. Here’s how it happens.

There’s our culture….

We’re not big on titles or hierarchies. Here you’ll be part of an open and collaborative environment. One where we care about and help each other. We’ve created a place where continuous learning, growth, and personal challenge are encouraged and supported. We believe humans come before profits and that the world is a better place when people and systems work in harmony.

We’re community minded in a down to earth kind of way. We like our social gatherings and summer picnics.  Our space is light-filled, modern, and open. Oh, and there’s the espresso machine and the fridge full of free snacks and beverages. If you want to talk to the CEO, Ron’s right down the hall.

Life-Work Balance…

We believe life/work balance brings out the best in everyone. Our culture allows our people to pursue their passions and grow both in and outside of work. We provide balance that allows them to return to their homes with enough time and energy to enjoy their personal lives.

Consultancy Difference…

We are a consultancy, not a staff augmentation shop. Our consultants not only help clients achieve their goals, they also question what the best path to success really is and implement solutions to follow that path.

As consultants, our people will have access to the support of their fellow colleagues no matter where they are. We are committed to sharing our expertise and resources with the communities that support and nurture our team members.

Unique Project Opportunities

Interested in doing something epic? Here you’ll get the opportunity to work on a range of innovative, life-impacting projects in areas that interest you. Our consultants have seen it and done it. We’ve seen it and done it. Our consultants developed cold chain application for a life-sciences company; wrote software for delivering real-time critical performance data on airplanes. And maybe someday we’ll help send someone to Mars.

Would you like to join Base2?

We take great pride in our work which results in lasting and trusting relationships with our clients. We hire people who are exceptionally talented, work well with others, and approach everything with the client in mind. Sound like your kind of place? Get in touch. We are always on the look out for great talent

 

The People We Have

We’re engineers, programmers, software developers, senior program managers with a deep, wide-ranging toolset. We are process geeks—battle tested, focused, and driven to deliver. All of us are excellent listeners and problem solvers. Our software developers are some of the best in the business. As a group we prize flexibility and quality — we do things we haven’t done before. We’re not locked into any one way to get to the finish line, so we don’t blur our vision by pushing vendor partnerships. We have fun, and we like collaborating with each other and with clients.

The Problems We Solve

Integration—systems with a high degree of complexity. Software development and quality assurance. Security. Systems engineering and design. Enterprise and embedded network systems. Program leadership and management. We bring efficiency and innovation to our client’s projects.

What’s different is that we add real value. In solving hard problems, we’ve even helped clients develop valuable intellectual property.

The Way We Work

We’re up to speed in fast-evolving industries. We’re all in for the challenge and we honor our commitments. There are few meetings and little chit chat. Ours is a highly disciplined approach that translates into real value. We take on your project as if it’s our very own company—we genuinely want you to succeed. Our philosophy is no surprises. Our ability and knowledge is matched by our commitment to you—Base2 teams are absolutely reliable.

The Inside Scoop

We love the really hard problems. We believe we can do anything we set our minds to. As a group, we love coming to work and our customers love working with us. At the end of the day, we’re all about one thing—solving the problem and doing the right thing for our client.
