Company Overview

Founded in 2007, Theorem (formerly Citrusbyte) is a technology consulting company with a focus on how we do the work as a means to achieve great results.

Our customers, F1000's and startups alike, come to us because they need to change how something is done in order to succeed and they're looking for a solution that isn’t just about technology — but also people, process and leadership. We consult, form a diverse team of experts, and deliver strategy and execution all under one roof. 

Our services range from new product development, pure R&D, legacy modernization, pricing strategy development, revenue generation, process optimization, to organizational transformation and cultural design. 


Working at Theorem

At Theorem, we believe that creating an environment where great people can flourish is the best strategy for our business and the best way to solve our client's problems and deliver the greatest value. 

Our focus on culture is supported by our shared vision to build a company where we want to work for the long-term. We avoid egos and embrace distributed leadership. We grow from constantly being challenged and seek to understand when presented with ideas we don't understand. We respect each other, default to trust and treat each other like adults and we also hold each other accountable for commitments. There is a lot about our culture that makes us great and we're continually looking to improve it. Read what we've published about our culture.
