Our team at talech is as diverse as they come. Spanning the globe from Palo Alto, CA to Kaunus, Lithuania, our employees have a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. We are musicians, knitters, and basketball players. We’ve worked as waiters at chain restaurants and in tech support. But despite our differences, we all have one thing in common: our journey has brought each of us to talech.
