Sonjara, Inc. is a woman-owned small business founded by Siobhan and Andrew Green that offers web solutions for the U.S. federal government domestically and internationally. We have
over nine years of experience supporting the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the World Bank, the Library of Congress, and other agencies in close collaboration with private sector and NGO implementing partners.
Located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, our team consists of 15 highly experienced technology specialists, developers, and operations personnel. Our 2012 revenue is projected to exceed $1 million.
Our Technology Advantage
Sonjara has built a proprietary open source tool called Fakoli to build custom applications for our clients. Fakoli is issued on an MIT open source license, meaning that the final application created by us for our clients are owned by our clients, with unlimited free use of the Fakoli components.
Solutions That Evolve to Meet Our Clients' Needs
Our projects have addressed a broad range of different challenges faced by our clients, and our solutions focus on both online and offline components. We know that non-technology elements (such as change management, training, logistics, and user interface) are as or even more important than the technology solution to the success of a project. Our approach is one of technology agnosticism, i.e., what is the best technology solution to meet the current and future projected need? Our philosophy toward technology is that it is a means to an end (rather than an end in itself). This enables us to design and deliver truly user centered solutions that address real problems.
A Depth and Breadth of Knowledge
We have bountiful personal and professional backgrounds that translate uniquely into our work. We boast international experience in 10+ countries and numerous sectors. Our staff possess a myriad of advanced degrees, self-taught specialties, and professional certifications. Meet the Sonjara Team here.
Passion and Commitment Beyond Technology
Each and every one of us here at Sonjara shares a commitment to corporate social responsibility. This is more than just a buzzword for Sonjara; we are an ethically-minded company with progressive values that underpin all of the work that we do. Our focus is on projects that create social benefit, and our employees enjoy a flexible work schedule and a full-time telecommute policy, which enables them to do top-notch work and live full, rich lives without having to choose one over the other.
We are unique as individuals and therefore unique as a company. Our headquarters is in Falls Church, VA, but we also have a successful network of virtual working spaces among our staff. We like to keep in touch with the world through social media, and you can keep up with us through Twitter, Facebook, our news page, or our company blog.
