What Drives Us?

It’s not money – although we need to earn a living.  It’s not notoriety – our personalities generally lend themselves to behind-the-scenes progress anyway.  We’re developers and technicians drawn to the S61 effort because we want to leverage our individual talents and leave the world a little better than we found it.  We are satisfied when we begin a noble effort, work hard, navigate storms, and arrive at a solution that works. We enjoy simple, elegant solutions to complex problems. We admire craftsmanship in almost any form but especially in systems.  Sometimes we are a frustrated bunch. We hate when regulation and politics stifle otherwise healthy innovation and change. However, we also count ourselves very lucky to have a company with the culture that allows us to think, be different, and try new things.      – The System61 Crew
