    Last updated 6 years ago

    When a mysterious package showed up at our office a few weeks back we had no idea what it was. We knew it was heavy, and it even had a nice black inner box it was held within. Turns out it was part of the validation we had worked for for the past few years as part of the CloudProfile and now ReachCast teams.

    Our Minneapolis team has grown since those early days (and still growing) and now includes: (back row) Eric Kinsella, Scott Vlaminck, Jesse O'Neill-Oine, Ryan Applegate, (front row) Zach Steven, Ben Edwards, Ben Boggess, and Doug Sabers.

    We're proud to have won the award and excited to build the next features and versions of ReachCast and more!
