AltaSource Group was started after founding partner Dave Moynihan’s career path allowed him to witness many different types of software projects end in failure.
He observed that along with poor planning, certain work and process patterns consistently contributed to an IT project’s demise. So, he set out to create a company which utilized systems and environments where those factors could not be reproduced, thereby eliminating discontinuity between project target and developer action. We now strive to instill successful patters in our team’ activities, and promote successful delivery practices in every engagement. The resulting service is AltaSource Group, a company dedicated to achieving the outcomes and experience that our clients expect and deserve.
Whether a client chooses to engage our staff augmentation assets, IT project work or our Nearshore IT resources, AltaSource Group clients find their experience with us to be highly productive and effective. We believe that transparency and clarity are symptoms of accuracy and accountability and we continually seek to understand our client’s motivations and guide them along a path to successful software development outcomes.
Dave is a seasoned IT executive bringing over 20 years of experience in the software industry to his work at AltaSource Group. Dave started his career at Advanced Technology Laboratories and has played leading roles at companies like Philips, Amazon and Safeco.
Additionally Dave has spent a number of years in the IT consulting field working with world leading companies like Microsoft and Alaska Air Lines. His passion for the IT industry and software development process continually drives Dave to successful solutions for his clients. He and his family are active in the local community and support the local MS chapter.
