Agilist

Ingage is growing our team of Agilists who are experienced in Agile and Lean concepts and practices to help our clients deliver large, complex technology and business solutions.

Consulting with purpose

We are an employee-owned and award-winning IT Consulting company. We treat our Consultants like family and encourage our professionals to use business as a platform to bring real, positive change to our city.

Triple-bottom line

Our day jobs are focused on delivering value to our clients, but our real passion is focusing on a “triple bottom line” of People, Planet, and Profit. We’re a Certified B Corp, with a strong culture of camaraderie, professional growth, and a shared belief in donating time and funds to charitable causes throughout Greater Cincinnati.

We’re not like other consulting firms in this region, and that’s why people love it here.
