Meet Fearless: Introducing Rob Fink

We like to think our projects have an impact across the country, from our work with UMCES on their Integration and Application Network to the contracts we have with the Small Business Administration to revamp the SBA homepage and share HUBFinder with entrepreneurs from coast-to-coast.

But for the most part our team is working hard in Baltimore either at Spark or bwtech@UMBC. Except Rob Fink. Rob lives and works in Tampa. We’re not sure if there is a strong tech pipeline from Baltimore to Florida but maybe we could start it. And maybe we could increase the trend of employers pursuing would-be employees.

Join Fearless for the AFCEA 5K

We are always on the lookout for ways to help develop future leaders in tech. We like to work on projects that help young people, like the Billion Oyster Project, and Sierra Seabrese is our rock star intern who is enrolling at the University of Maryland, College Park this fall.

The non-profit professional organization is a great way for folks in our universe to connect and learn from one another but we are most proud of the work AFCEA does for others.

Meet Fearless: Introducing Pat Kelsh

Running is a big part of Pat Kelsh’s life.

At Fearless he runs tests for our work with the HUBZone program, and when he’s off the clock you might see him literally running.

Pat isn’t a casual weekend warrior, he’s conquered an Olympic distance triathlon and a half-marathon. Pounding the pavement isn’t just good for Pat’s health but he says it’s also been a great way for him to work out his mind. Continue reading “Meet Fearless: Introducing Pat Kelsh”

SBA and USDS Announce New 8(a) Program Digital Service Initiative

The U.S. government has a massive suite of applications to maintain, but numerous barriers keep government agencies from easily matching with the digital services firms that could modernize their applications. This leaves many government sites outdated and difficult to navigate, and their unintuitive layouts and tired designs can leave your average user frustrated and dreading the next time they have to interact with the government online. So in an age where online experience is king, why have so many government agencies been left in the dust? Most agencies are open to modernization, but with complicated requirements, long procurement lead-times, and a lack of available resources and guidance, it’s no wonder that so many remain in the digital Dark Ages. Continue reading “SBA and USDS Announce New 8(a) Program Digital Service Initiative”

Fearless named a finalist in BBJ’s Best Places to Work

Awesome team members and great company culture is kind of our thing. We recently had a team hooky day which included laser tag and beer tasting, and we outfit all of our team members in purple swag. But it’s more than goofy activities and hoodies that makes Fearless a great place to work.

We consider everyone on the team our family. And we’re psyched that our commitment to make Fearless the best environment for our employees is being recognized. Fearless is one of forty finalist for the Baltimore Business Journal’s Best Places to Work! Continue reading “Fearless named a finalist in BBJ’s Best Places to Work”

“It’s so laid back, and everyone still gets their jobs done,” she said.
