What We Do

At our Baton Rouge office, we are wholly focused on software development, primarily in the domains of national defense and homeland security. We use a variety of technologies and platforms to solve complex problems that involve the intensive use of algorithms, modeling, data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer science. We routinely partner with domain experts to create solutions to previously impossible problems by fusing new data sources, novel algorithms, and an exceptional user experience. Our team has worked on projects like:

  • Medical response to mass casualty events
  • Organizing the world’s largest collection of identity and travel documents
  • Modeling the Navy’s HR system


At the Baton Rouge office, we are always looking for new talent to promote upward and onward. We primarily recruit from the city’s universities and are particularly interested in colleagues that have previously worked (professionally or at school) with current Baton Rouge employees. A good attitude, self-driven approach, and strong problem-solving skills are more important to our team than any specific experience.
