Who we are, the DNA of DNA
DNA is a place for “Go-Getters” and we seek out teammates and projects that are well-suited to our firm. Our firm is comprised of experienced people who have done something special in their lives, or have greatness within them, which makes our consultants a very valuable addition to any project. It is our goal to design for a project but also teach into the project. Making sure everyone learns and understands the technologies we specify and the methodologies we employ. Our hands-on approach to solving problems and inventing solutions separates DNA from other firms. Because DNA consultants push the limits of design and innovation, there are number of products and even entire market niches that have been created form thin air. We look forward to demonstrating this philosophy and our capabilities to you!
