IT Consultant for Small Business - About Us
Founder, IT Consultant
Ryan began his career as a web developer in 2003 while studying Biology at the University of California, San Diego. In an effort to learn how web pages were built, he read the entire 1,000-page book “HTML: The Complete Reference.” Soon after, he applied for an internship at a local web development firm which, unbeknownst to him, was owned by the author of that book. By sheer luck, he received the internship, which led to a position as a part-time HTML coder, and eventually a full-time role.
In his next position as a web developer for a small marketing firm, Ryan filled the role of IT support for the growing company, managing a network of 10-12 users, devices, and servers. It was here that he found his passion for networking and hardware. Since that time he has continued to learn new technologies including network security, cloud infrastructure, and network management.
Ryan left the corporate world in 2007 to found Ten9 IT Services with the goal of providing high-level development services for small businesses. In the past 10+ years, Ten9 IT Services has grown from a web development firm into a full-fledged technology company offering online marketing, IT outsourcing, and cloud services to businesses across the country.
In his free time, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters, playing softball, coaching soccer, and being outdoors.
What is an IT Consultant?
The role of an IT consultant is that of a creative problem solver; a technical advisor who focuses on integrating information technology (IT) into a business, showing them how to use IT efficiently to achieve their business objectives. As an IT Consultant, we make it our goal to understand a business’s needs so we can effectively diagnose problems, analyze a company’s IT system and infrastructure, and implement solutions to meet business needs.
Ten9 IT Services provides a wide array of IT consulting services for businesses which opt to outsource IT support.
