Mildly obsessed with simplifying the complex.

AKOS locations map

We started AKOS as a generalized firm saying yes to nearly everything from church websites to custom email templates, and organically we started to grow. Clients came to us for more than their online presence; they came to us to make things work.

Over time, we began to learn more about the challenges that larger organizations commonly faced: system integrations, outdated platforms, information bottlenecks ––things that could be solved with technology. The more difficult the problem, the more we wanted to tackle it. (I told you we were weird).

Needless to say, our crew of brilliant rascals has evolved into a close-knit team with global operations that helps large-scale institutions build dependable systems and rapidly-growing organizations scale comfortably. We take so much pride in making things possible for our clients and they know it.

The most commonly used word to describe our team is "Sharp." The second most commonly used word to describe our team is "Caring."

Technology is for people and lucky for us, we have some of the best ones around.

Change is hard. We make it easier.

The world is changing at an ever-faster rate and this fact hits large organizations harder than small ones. Any adjustment in technology whether new or redeveloped can be a difficult process. We make that process easier with systems that we have worked to perfect. Of course, gaining knowledge and developing skill isn't something that stops. We're in a quickly evolving industry and keeping up with best practices, key platforms, and the latest tools is critical to our expertise and our clients' success. It allows us to make the best possible recommendation at the best possible times.

  • Modular Approach

    We don't believe in throwing out old code and starting from scratch. Your old code has been battle tested with countless iterations and bug-fixes. It might be unreadable or ugly but it can be salvaged in parts to save time and costs. We refactor your existing business logic within your old code and recycle it for a modern, more reliable framework.

  • Cloud Architecture

    Reliability, security, and vertical scalability are the foundations of any enterprise application or website. Relying on single node basement servers is a disaster in waiting. We deploy cloud-based serverless architecture on AWS and Google Cloud Platform for effortless management, security, and scalability.

  • Process Modernization

    Redeveloping business processes to transform manual or semi-automated workflows to remove inefficiencies. We break the monolithic application and processes into many components, with each responsible for a higher-level business task. These components are then exposed and rebuilt to compose your new agile business process.

Care is our competitive advantage.

We know this section is supposed to make us look good. We also know that you know this section is supposed to make us look good. Here's the truth: we believe care is a competitive advantage, and we stand out in that department. Our clients are not just our clients. Our clients are people that can come to us for anything. And our team? Well our team is more than family. They're the kind of people that will give you the last roll of sushi. Not even family will do that.

Value-aligned hiring

We know that a culture standard is more important than a process standard. The best organizations are full of people that operate based on who they are, not what they're told. We strive to make our company culture a place of innate knowing based on inner truth, and that's only possible when people share the same values.

Next-level empathy

We know that a culture standard is more important than a process standard. The best organizations are full of people that operate based on who they are, not what they're told. We strive to make our company culture a place of innate knowing based on inner truth, and that's only possible when people know their values.

Progressive learning

Our industry gives more value to experience than formal learning. The willingness to deep-dive into the dirt to earn intrinsic knowledge is a key difference that allows us to develop sharp solutions and share best practices with our industry colleagues. With transparency of progress, we move forward.

Our values.

More than phrases posted on the lobby wall, these are the guiding principles of our everyday work.

Candid Conversations

Leave no questions unasked. Sharp solutions don't always require reinvention - they just need revelation. We question our way to deeper understanding, to greater knowledge, towards meaningful conversations.

Intrinsic Optimism

Innovation is born of the belief that things can be better. We honor what already exists and build upon our findings to create new possibilities.

Valiant Code

Be the one in the arena. As digital scientists, we consistently hypothesize, test, document, and iterate for continuous learning and fearless experimentation.

Active Reliability

Steady through change. We're committed to being trusted partners, producing work that people can depend on.

Rich Diversity

The full spectrum of perspective enriches us all. Our differences in background, preference, identity, and experience is something we seek and respect. We know deeply that this variety of spirit makes us better.

Human Core

Responsibility, Adaptation, Authenticity, Heart. We work with machines everyday, but that doesn't mean we let passion eclipse compassion. People still come first.

It's not about winning shiny awards

Our vision is to be known as the product team of possibilities. We build the bridge that moves abstract ideas into concrete realities and do this by developing deep empathy for our clients, leaning on what works, and collaborating within cross-functional teams. Our intention is to bend our industry forward with outstanding people-first technology.
