Company
& Leadership

Company

DS2 was founded in 2011 by Software Engineers experienced in the DoD domain, who were driven by the idea of delivering maximum capabilities to the warfighter without the unnecessary red tape found at larger firms. DS2 implemented Agile development principles from our inception, and the idea of closely collaborating with the end-user community during the development process; not afterwards, when changes are more costly to make. Our business leaders strive to be the most responsive and easiest you’ll ever work with, complemented by engineers adhering to the highest technical standards. Our formula is simple: People + Technology = Optimized Outcomes for our customers.
