Understanding Our “Why”: A 20 Year Look Back and Look Forward @ Key Tech

Understanding Our “Why”: A 20 Year Look Back and Look Forward @ Key Tech

Are engineers, programmers, physicists and designers born or are they crafted? Is it the unquenchable curiosity about how things work that defines us? Is it the innate passion for taking things apart, figuring out what makes them go, putting them back together, making them better, combining them with new things that solve new problems, that defines us? Or, is it something more? At the 20 year mark, Key Tech is pausing to reflect on where we’ve been, and where we are going. It’s provoked some interesting discussions.

Resoundingly, after 20 years of Key Tech, it is the desire and passion to take on the toughest problems that is the heart of who we are. Taking on the multidisciplinary technology ones that require creative thinking combined with relentless troubleshooting to find the best solutions.  This is what drives us. We are compelled by the commitment to translate unique technologies into successful commercial products for our clients in the best possible way, and to work with a collaborative and brilliant team of folks to do so. This is our DNA.To be constantly pushing the envelope, to be recruiting and developing the smartest minds and putting the toughest, most interesting problems before them. This is Key Tech.
