The location doesn't hurt

Symplicity is located just outside of Washington, DC in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, VA. Not bad considering that Arlington is the birthplace of the internet. It's true. Arlington based Defense Department Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) built the Interface Message Processor (IMP) to carry data to and from different specialized computers mostly in the U.S. university community. DARPA created ARPANET, which ultimately became the Internet. Symplicity's office is accessible by both METRO Rail and Bus lines.



Symplicity currently delivers customer satisfaction on tens of thousands of tasks for more than 1200 customers worldwide.
