We heart people.

Here at SEP, our core values center on people. That’s why we’ve built a culture where people can grow and everyone is accepted. Where people’s talents can shine through. And where everyone can learn, grow and push each other to do their best work.

Why we heart...our purpose.

We love to think. And make. And push the boundaries of design, engineering, and software. This isn’t easy work, but it’s meaningful.

SEP looks like a tech-focused business, but the tech is the easy part. Our work is actually all about people—our teams, our clients, the people who use and benefit from the things we build.

We build teams of awesome people who love to solve problems and make life better. They have to be skilled, smart, engaged, and passionate. And they can’t do their best work unless they feel accepted, included, and respected.

Be a human, not a robot. Be patient, kind, and humble. Be a great teammate. Be yourself.

– Raman Ohri, President & CEO

How we heart

No organization has a monopoly on talent; smart, effective people are everywhere. Unfortunately, aspects of work undermine that innate talent and drive—too much multitasking, bureaucracy, and distractions. We obsess about removing those drags on people’s innate drive and ability. We work constantly to put our people in a position where the talent shines through. In turn, they stick around, grow and push each other to do their best work.

Feeling the love

“One of the things that attracted me to SEP was how much they care about growth. Not only do they want individuals to do their best, but they want everyone to do their best together. SEPeers are constantly learning new things and excitedly teaching each other so they can all grow and become an even better company as a whole. This emphasis on being awesome together and a culture of caring are some of the reasons why I came back to SEP after my internship.”
