OUR APPROACH

Solving all of your tech mysteries. (Like total geeks.)

We love coding, making processes efficient, and geeking out over tech problems.

But Leading EDJE is much more than the sum of our skills.

In four simple steps, we assess your needs and develop a solution tailored for you.

  • Ask the right questions.

    We listen and gather all the information available so we can make informed decisions about what you need.

  • Design a custom solution.

    Next we dive in and think through a solution for your specific need, mindful to look beyond the symptoms to pinpoint the root of the problem.

  • Implement all the bright ideas.

    Now the fun (geeky) part: Our skilled technologists code and develop your custom solution, executing on the planned design.

  • Get your team ready for prime time.

    Finally, we make sure everything works. If one of our solutions is unfamiliar to your team, our technologists will train them.

Most important, we're just a phone call away. If you run into any issues after we're gone, we have your back.

OUR VALUES

How do we do it? Two words: honor code.

Producing quality technical work isn't about luck. It's a deliberate result of the values that everyone at Leading EDJE shares.

  • Love your client as yourself.

    Trust is everything. We build open and honest relationships with our clients, so you always know our advice is technically sound and tailored to you.

  • IT solutions are like snowflakes
    (only they don't melt.)

    Every problem demands its own creative solution. By getting to know you and your business, we naturally deliver better technology for your unique needs.

  • Do the right thing, not the right now thing.

    Some consultants get way too excited about the hottest fads—but we're smarter than that. Our solutions are designed to make your business better, not just trendier. And we only take on a project if we can make it succeed for you.

START WITH THE RIGHT BID.

Every minute of your time and every dollar of your budget is valuable. That's why we do a thorough, accurate assessment at the beginning of every project.

The path to the Right Bid.

Your project gets approved and the bids roll in.

Select a partner, get set, go.

Detour.

There's a roadblock (it happens).

THE OTHER BID.

They didn't see it coming — time for a change order.

You're back on track.

(Only underwhelmed and over budget.)
Here's our number for the next time.

THE RIGHT BID.

We planned ahead and know an alternate route.

FINISH LINE.

Time to celebrate with your favorite geeks.

FUN

OUR CULTURE

Some geeks have all the fun. (That's us.)

There are some things everyone should know: never mess with a ninja, Darth Vader is Luke's father, and working at Leading EDJE totally rocks.

OUR LEADERS

  • Erica Krumlauf

    Chief Operating Officer.

    Master of finance, human resources, and project delivery. When she's off the clock, Erica is either cooking up something delicious, hopelessly feeding her Pinterest addiction or playing dress-up with her daughter.

  • Wendy Ivany

    Vice President of Client Solutions.

    Guru of sales and recruiting. Unlicensed team psychologist. Wendy's passion is bringing positive energy to at least one person every day (and she's more than willing to humiliate herself to make it happen).

  • Joelle Brock

    Chief Executive Officer.

    As the boss, Joelle believes leadership is about lifelong learning. She enforces two simple rules: learn something every day, and laugh every hour. Outside of work, she loves to golf—her dream is to one day get on Golf Channel's The Big Break.

  • Dave Michels

    Chief Technology Officer.

    Head geek. When Dave's not harnessing the power of technology to solve problems, he's a true sports buff through and through. He also has active kids, which means he's always on the soccer field, the basketball court, or—most recently—the gymnastics mat.
