WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Silver Arrow’s company culture is awesome. I love stopping by office for a game of pool or to just hang out with the team for a beer. It is so unique to show up and see a random business executive and a software developer chatting at a whiteboard. I have just never been around anything like it before.
I have been working as a consultant at Silver Arrow for over a year. I really feel at home with the owners and they have made this a great place to work. I have never seen a group of people so connected into Kansas City’s business community. I feel confident and excited when I show up at a client site to start an engagement!
I partnered with Silver Arrow Technologies as a consultant on a 6 month infrastructure project. I have worked on a lot of projects and with a lot of consulting companies over my 15 year IT career and this was by far my best experience. Highly recommend their team if you are a true consultant and experienced technologist.
They are easily the best IT consulting company in KC. They “think” more like a customer than any other company I have worked with before.
