Parthenon employs nearly 40 people in our Portland, Oregon office and is growing every day. Each one of our developers is hand-picked based on their skills and ability to work as a team. We're big enough to help, and agile enough to respond to the changing needs of our clients. Parthenon works with your business, no matter its size, to be faster and more effective on the web and internally.
Parthenon Software Group was founded in 2006 by two programmers who saw a need for highly-skilled software engineers who could help local businesses. Working from home, Andy and Chris spent their evenings building a business by helping other small businesses. As Parthenon expanded, it became a full-time operation that involved the skills of many more developers who shared Andy and Chris's philosophy of building programs and websites for clients that perfectly fit their needs.
Andy's favorite types of projects involve interfaces and system architecture, the weirder the better. He co-founded Parthenon after nine years of freelance software development. A father of two, he spends the tiny portion of time that family and work doesn't occupy as a volunteer heavy metal critic.
Chris began programming in Basic and Assembly on a Commodore 64. Later, he worked in Certified Sequent System Administration on DYNIX/ptx machines before the NUMA-Q line came out and they were bought by IBM. Chris' first job out of college was in QA, testing software and automating test plans for clients like Welch Allyn, HP and Intel. Chris enjoys projects with a short development cycle where you get rapid feedback from the client. "My goal is to make Parthenon a company designed for developers and a place people want to work."
Seiji leads our business development team at Parthenon. Having a programming and business background, he's spent a large part of his career building automated trading systems. He likes to focus on growth through data and analytics. He's lived and worked in China, Argentina, and San Francisco, but now calls Portland home.
