The MindSource Way
Beginning with a 100 square foot office in Mountain View, Dave Clark and his entrepreneurial partners built a thriving business in four months with their unique technical knowledge and high-touch approach. Our management team immersed themselves in the intricacies of the most technically challenging and sophisticated technical endeavors, requiring the best and brightest minds.
Two decades later, we have used our technical savvy to grow our consultancy and to provide top-tier talent in the areas of mobile development, front-end development, and quality assurance. We provide our consultants with engineering job opportunities, QA analyst jobs, IT job opportunities, and many other rewarding careers with Silicon Valley’s top employers.
At every step, we made good on our promise to deliver satisfaction, and because of this emerged as the leader in our field.
The MindSource staff is a close-knit family of employees; many have been with the company for over a decade. We are motivated by generating and maintaining long-term relationships with both colleagues and clients as we have done for over 20 years. We value working with the best, and continue to do so, over and over again.

Birds of a Feather
MindSource BoFs have always been about tech—the first addressed the differences and the merits of Perl version 0 over TCL. Other early events explored the concepts of the sandbox security model in the Java programming language which was evolving at that moment at Sun Microsystems. No one else has given back to the Silicon Valley tech community like MindSource. Since 1994, we have hosted almost sixty of these events to the public, some academic in nature and others, were hands-on labs.
Over the last 20 years, MindSource is proud to be part of the Silicon Valley community. In honor of where our team lives, works and plays, we support organizations that help make our community a better place.
