Who We Are

SDW is a technically diverse bunch of engineers who match the best, progressive, open source knowledge to legacy and enterprise software and hardware systems. Our people have worked at such joints as Google, Amazon, Bank of America, Duke Energy, and the Department of Defense.

We have a mixture of business and technology backgrounds and have used technology to influence a wide variety of industries including education, health care, entertainment, finance, transportation, advertising, manufacturing, and everything in between. 

Who We've Helped

Companies large and small need creative and agile business technology applications. From custom integrations to specialty software, these are just some of the firms we’ve helped.


SDW does business everywhere, but we’ve coalesced in Charlotte, North Carolina because we like the weather, have all done the SF/NY thing, and like to see our families. 


Twice named one of the Best Places to Work in Charlotte, NC, SDW takes pride in a happy crew. Come see why.


In 2001, two UNC-Charlotte computer science majors began working on database encryption in their dorm room. Professors noticed—followed shortly thereafter by the US DoD. In 2005, SDW was formed and has since provided over 600 small, medium, and Fortune 1000 businesses with creative technology solutions.
