Ayn Rand wrote “Capitalism demands the best of every man – his rationality – and rewards him accordingly. It leaves every man free to choose the work he likes, to specialize in it, to trade his product for the products of others, and to go as far on the road of achievement as his ability and ambition will carry him.” Atlas Shrugged was one of the most influential books for Aurimas, a first-generation Lithuanian immigrant who to this day sees America as the land of dreams and opportunity.
At 27 years of age, Aurimas and his partners founded Devbridge Group. During the last 10 years and with no outside funding, Aurimas has grown Devbridge Group into a 30-million-dollar technology powerhouse with nearly 300 employees across five global offices. The company builds strategic digital products for clients such as Grainger, kCura, John Deere, Morningstar, Fitch Ratings, Berlin Packaging, Art Institute of Chicago, and several Tier 1 banks in the US and Canada.
Aurimas' attributes his inspiration to found a software design and development company to his parents and upbringing. His mother, an art teacher at the time, used to take Aurimas along to drawing excursions with students twice his age. His dad, a physics professor, built Aurimas his first computer when he was six. An elegant blend of design and science is what stands at the core of the Devbridge brand today.
Aurimas’ real passion is a never-ending fight against mediocrity in everything that he or the company does. As a result, Devbridge Group has been recognized by the Inc. 5000 four years running, a National Best and Brightest Company to Work For, Inc’s Best Workplace 2017, and a top employer by Inc. Magazine.
