About Us

We are committed to building products and services that help our customers focus on the problems core to their success.

Our Mission


Our mission is to deliver and manage cohesive, state-of-the-art, cost-effective and scalable technology solutions that simplify operations, reduce key-person dependencies and enable our customers to focus on the areas of their business where they derive the most value.

  • Infrastructure

    We believe infrastructure is the foundation of your business, but it shouldn’t be where you spend your time. Our offering is expansive, robust, and cost-effective. By "upsourcing" to Deep Systems, our clients can simultaneously simplify their technology operations and benefit from a more functional, scalable infrastructure footprint.

  • Software Services

    Building or managing a full stack software environment requires in-house expertise in many areas that are not inherently valuable to a business. Our platform encompasses a feature set unparalleled in the marketplace, allowing you to focus internal development resources on software elements that are unique and valuable to your enterprise.

Our Values


  • insert_emoticon

    Be Our Own Customer

    We make it a practice to use our own solutions where possible. We feel this leads to understanding our products better, improving solutions, and aligning our customers’ needs with our own.

    Empower Individuals

    It is our belief that a healthy culture means empowering individuals and valuing their contributions. We have an outstanding team of people who thrive on challenge and ownership of problems.

    Transparency

    Too often vendors are opaque and obfuscate their customer from key pieces of information. We feel customers should have a full line of sight into our team and the solutions we provide.

  • pan_tool

    Responsibility

    In many situations, vendors and their staff will look for an easy way out of addressing a problem. As part of our culture, we stress that the problem isn’t solved for us until it’s solved for our customer.

  • phonelink

    Product First

    Many organizations enable their sales teams to sell at all costs, which can present conflicts. We feel it’s important to avoid making sacrifices that have long-term potential to destabilize our business.

    Simplicity

    While the problems we are solving are often difficult and complex, their solutions should not be. We stress that solutions should be graceful and reliable to make the overall experience straightforward and easy.
