About Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES)

With customers that include the likes of Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman, we’re often competing with much larger companies to create products on the cutting edge of embedded computing technology. We know it’s a tall order, and that’s why we’re committed to hiring strong contributors and giving them space to thrive. X-ES is a 100% employee-owned company where all employees are expected to drive—and benefit from—the company’s success. Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is deliberately structured to give everyone a meaningful equity stake, whether they sit in a corner office or on the manufacturing floor. Embedded Systems: In our Verona, WI Headquarters, we design rugged embedded hardware and low level software for Military and Aerospace companies. Our in-house software development team works closely with hardware engineers and can provide the latest drivers and software technologies without employing third-party vendors. From bootloader development to operating system support, X-ES creates a robust platform so customers can focus on the application of their product.  Business Applications: While most of the company is working on hardware, our Business Applications team is creating our internal web applications. Our small, agile team of fewer than 10 developers, have the opportunity to create applications that have a direct and meaningful impact on the company’s engineering, manufacturing, and financial success.
