In 1998, David Easterling opened his much-anticipated software consulting business in the basement of the First Trust Centre in Louisville, Kentucky. Affiliated with Nashville-based Everest Technologies, the company took on the name and proceeded to acquire some of the biggest clients in the Louisville area.
In 2002, David refocused his business, rebranding the company to Prosoft to showcase his focus on providing professional software developers to Louisville companies in need of senior level technical talent. Business grew and Prosoft quickly solidified itself as the go-to staffing and consulting partner for the Louisville market. However, something was still missing.
Focused on process improvement for his business, David became a Certified Scrum Master in 2008. This is when David realized how difficult it would be for his clients to adopt scrum while working with offshore software development teams. Determined to find an effective solution, David forms Prosoft Nearshore to offer an off-site alternative to India for agile teams that needed to collaborate all day with their development partners.
From 2008 to 2016, we expanded far past our home in Louisville, Kentucky. Now, we were able to work with clients all over the United States and recruit from a limitless talent pool across Latin America. In 2016, Prosoft Nearshore rebranded to the name, number8. With number8, we were able to remove the traditional geographical boundaries that slowed down the development process for our clients.
At number8, we are guided by our mission to help our clients develop a future without staffing constraints. We believe our solutions and services will continue to help companies create software that impacts the entire world. What’s next for us is really up to our customers and how big they can dream.
