We are an IT consulting firm with a growing team of 21 Windows & Linux experts, many of whom have decades of experience in IT.
Our CEO Wim Kerkhoff founded the company in 2007. If you ask him why, he’d tell you that he always wanted to build a company where it would be fun to work—a company with great culture, great people, no bureaucracy and no toxic relationships.
In the early days, our services were a mix of Windows IT support, ISP support, software development, and Linux/Cisco engineering work. But by 2016, we realized that the Linux/DevOps world is very distinct from the IT support world and launched a separate brand to represent our Linux/DevOps support and consulting services: Crafty Penguins.
Although Kerkhoff Technologies and Crafty Penguins are two separate teams with different skill sets, we’re one company. We all use the same ticket system—Slack and Wiki—sit at the same office and have the same leadership team.
This comes quite handy when our clients need us to support both Linux and Windows systems or if our Windows team needs a hand with API integration, troubleshooting SQL or hardware issues.
