Our Story

We are a team of practitioners who share a passion for engineering using Open Source Technology and Cloud Based Services.

Our team initially met and worked together over the course of several years for an international startup based in Nashville, Chicago, and London. During our time working together we enjoyed the challenge and freedom of using open source technology to deliver platform as a service (PaaS) for a big data analytics and targeting engine used by financial institutions and advertisers in the payment card industry.

Through our experiences we have witnessed first-hand the tremendous value that a well-engineered platform can have on a business. DevOps Automation and Platform Engineering is simply a force multiplier for a team's creative momentum. We launced Gadgetry in early 2017 to offer our services to the community.
