Growing up on Veloz Avenue taught us the invaluable lessons that have shaped our unique corporate culture. Think outside the box. Always question the status quo. Great achievements are driven by innovation and creativity put into action through hard work and dedication. Success in business is a means, not an end. Family, friendship and community are life's indespensible pillars.
While we cut our teeth at big companies, we founded The Veloz Group as a way to bring the values we so deeply cherish into our professional lives through an organization of our own. As our company has evolved over the years, our commitment to maintaining our culture has remained steadfast. The free-wheeling nature and entrepreneurial spirit reflective of the touch football games we played every week on the Veloz Avenue continues to permeate throughout all levels of The Veloz Group today.
As technology and innovation have driven and will continue to drive rapid change, we seek opportunities across all industries in which we can apply our skills to capitalize on opportunities to solve business problems, big or small, and bring about positive disruption.
We believe in hiring the absolute best people available to work on projects that they are passionate about, while providing the support needed to allow each person in our organization to optimize his or her potential. We believe in a highly-collaborate environment free of the bureaucratic chains that regularly stifle creativity and in empowering each stakeholder to regularly challenge the status quo.
In building business through technology, innovation and ingenuity, we aspire to solve problems and help shape a better, happier world.
