Quality Assurance Internship

THE COMPANY

carpasean specializes in working with small and medium businesses struggling with understanding, implementing or managing their Information Technology solutions. Our customers are dependent on computing technology but either too small to staff internal IT experts or the staffs they do have are insufficient. Our core business is providing critical thinking and more than twenty years of experience in Information Systems (including Information Technology), Business Intelligence and Processes Management. Through manufacturer agnostic Information Systems Consulting, we transform small and medium business Information Technology liabilities into Information Systems assets that will give our customers the competitive advantage to succeed today and into the future. Our Information Systems Outsourcing, our premier and niche offering, is deeply grounded in standards-based industry best practices, but fluid enough to properly direct, administrate and manage any well understood Information Systems based IT Solution including its staff, partners and vendors. Just as our Consulting services redesign in-place solutions to transform liabilities into assets, our Outsourcing services ensure IT operates as an asset, perpetually showing ROI and competitive advantage. Our outsourcing is available for a single project or, as is the case with many of our customers, carpasean LLC can serve as an organization’s entire Information Systems and Technology department, accountable directly to an officer, or the owners.
