We Grow Our People
A New Kind of MSP
Kinetix was founded in 2004 by Rodger Keesee, a veteran of the tech industry who was frustrated with his experience working with managed service providers (MSP). He saw an opportunity to create a new kind of MSP that understands the challenges unique to tech startups, isn’t incentivized to solve problems halfway, and takes the time to deeply understand a client’s needs before jumping to cookie-cutter solutions.
Pratap Mukherjee, a veteran entrepreneur who built three successful startups before joining Kinetix in 2011 as CEO, helped Rodger achieve his vision. Pratap grew the company rapidly and pushed us in two new directions: becoming a learning organization to continually improve our people and our service, and focusing intensely on the cybersecurity needs of startups.
Customized Career Paths
We consider ourselves to be as much a learning organization as a service provider. Every Kinetix employee is given an official career progress plan tailored to their skill level, interests, and goals. We then structure their primary job duties to allow ample time for learning, whether that’s studying for a certification, taking online courses, or just reading books. Our peer mentorship program allows for exposure to new projects, preliminary management duties, and hands-on lab work. Career progress is the most important performance indicator at Kinetix, so you can’t stagnate without someone noticing.
Work That Matters
Every employee also gets to participate in the ongoing improvement of the company. Our quarterly objectives system is structured to empower each team member to contribute directly to company goals, and everyone gets to work on process improvements, testing new technologies, and developing new service offerings.
