Numbers Never Lie is one of my favorite sayings. So is Follow The Money, but that’s another story. As a mild-insomniac, I found myself click-click-clicking around LinkedIn last night. I stumbled across a link which invited me to, “Check out insightful statistics about Fairway Technologies employees.”
I couldn’t help myself. As a closet math-nerd and sociology major, I’m a sucker for statistics. Click.
As soon as I viewed the Job Function Composition chart, I immediately thought it reflected Fairway’s commitment to reduce overhead while investing in developer talent. Clearly, less admin, more R&D than “the other guys”.
Of course, I must acknowledge that LinkedIn does not have official headcounts for us nor for other firms, so these stats represent an approximation rather than exactness. But I believe the graphs paint a reasonably reliable picture.
I smiled when I saw this Years of Work Experience chart because it shows at a glance what takes a while to explain with words. Fairway Technologies has very seasoned and senior talent. But not so seasoned that we’ve lost our passion or zest.
We have solved many tough technical and business challenges throughout our careers. (And continue to do the same for new clients). Yet as a small company, we are nimble. Our engagements aren’t padded with software or hardware “drag”, nor bureaucratic processes. We get things done. We move with purpose, and we do it right.
