Qarik Overview 


Qarik Group, LLC is a technology consulting firm focused on combining senior-level expertise and experience to help clients see further and go faster, solving big business problems.

We have a saying at Qarik that sums up our culture: ‘Greatness grows greatness.’ It reflects how we support each other by sharing expertise, experience and opportunity. One person’s insight smooths the way for another to succeed. And it’s not just about supporting each other. It’s as much about how we help our client's businesses thrive.

About Our Work


We work “with” our clients, not "for" them. We embrace agile instead of deliverables and milestones - establish a vision, create theme based roadmap and then execute. We work in the trenches with client's engineers to learn from each other's experiences and capabilities.  We frequently have a stake in their success, ensuring that everyone is aiming towards the same goals.

We check badges and egos at the door and bring incredible people together to achieve great outcomes. This allows people to bring their whole person to contribute to, and be part of the team. You should never feel like you have to be somebody else.
