About Torq IT

We are the tradesmen of IT, a small pit crew of professional developers and consultants who get under the hood to solve problems and make business more efficient.

We are a small but rapidly growing company of developers, who doubled in size in the past year! We work on several projects for various clients ranging from enterprise business systems to IoT platforms to startup incubation. Given our size many of us wear different hats and have the opportunity to regularly touch the frontend (React and TypeScript usually), backend (C#/.Net Core, or PHP8), CI/CD (GitHub Actions, Azure DevOps), or infrastructure (Azure, AWS, on-prem). But as we grow there is more opportunity to specialize as well.

We are pragmatic, finding the best ways to deliver what our clients need without overdesigning or getting lost in the weeds. We reinvest time regularly in figuring out how to improve our process and make our lives easier as developers.

We often work with modern stacks and get to build greenfield solutions. Using the latest versions of .Net, PHP, React, TypeScript, etc. We use a lower case a agile approach to iterate our projects and process to continuously improve. We use Continue Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Pull Requests to ensure high quality work is delivered with minimum friction.

We do not work overtime. We work to set realistic deadlines which can be met with regular working hours and go home afterwards.
We are completely self-funded and profitable, with happy long-term clients and lots of new opportunity.
