Our Mission Statement

PositiveSine, started as a venture between individuals who all had a vested interest in “programming," and not just applying libraries. A principal-level embedded firmware engineer and a VP-level hands-on engineer with over 35 years combined experience decided to create a company that was different. A company that focused on engineering correctly, and without taking shortcuts that put our deliverables and clients at risk. We quickly found that this was a superior and effective long-term path. When coupled with an agile development cycle, we found our approach was highly effective, and functional. We utilize our cooperative, collaborative team's strengths. This enables us to out-perform and exceed the expectations of our clients. 


Delivering quality results and exceeding expectations on our commitments is our specialty. We deliver direct, scalable solutions, including mobile application development, firmware development, SoA distributed services development, and even hardware development. We pride ourselves on strong technical leadership and understanding. Our corporate vernacular does not include compromising or making the easy decision that has a sub par result. We execute on what we commit to, and we excel at doing so.  Our efficient and viable approaches will make our company, and yours, great! – This is our mission statement.


Due to our approach and continued success, we are opening offices and expanding our field and operations in 2019.
