We evaluate our staff using a number of measures.  Each Job role is tied to numbers which help us measure the quality of execution of the job role tasks and activities.   For example, Tech’s are measured on the ratio of billable / non-billable hours, the time from when a client problem occurs till it is solved,  estimated vs actual time, etc.
Skill levels are evaluated using a job roles based list of required skills (both technical and non-technical), education and degrees, certifications, and experience.
We feel certification is a key indicator of career progress, ideally based on taking tests which demonstrate mastery gained from work experience and training.  More information on Certification can be found here.

We do not discriminate on the basis of anything other than how well your abilities match the job role. We are an equal opportunity employer.
