Getting you, from here to done.

About

Our Story

Sometimes, you have to drop the mic to really find your voice…
We left a global, Fortune 500 company at the peak of our careers. We were disillusioned by an industry — which starts and ends with human connection — treating people as commodities. For too long, we saw IT staffing companies setting a low bar, while careers and livelihoods were at stake. So we walked away, put everything on the line, and set out to create a better way. Dynamo is a new model for what IT consulting and recruiting should be: valuing people over transactions, and getting it right the first time. But we know it’s not about what we say, it’s about what we do.
That’s our story. Now let’s hear yours.

Patiently waiting for version 4.0 of me to update. Primarily responsible for Brody’s grey hair (fully responsible for mine). I feel proud of the impact our work is having in the community we serve. I value results, learning, relearning, unexpected outcomes, laughing, discovering, trust, and most importantly gratitude for the opportunity to connect with brilliant minds rethinking The IT Solution.

Traded in my cubicle, never looking back and consistently amazed at the craftsmanship within the tech industry. I’m energized by teams working towards next generation solutions and helping them get there. Coffee-dependent with the ability to eat unconventional amounts of guacamole. In constant battle with office confetti and frequently breaking awkward silences. Continuously learning from those who love what they do…happy hours just make it more interesting.
