About Us

TeraTech creates custom software for medium sized (i.e. 50-500 employees) US companies, using the Adobe ColdFusion programming language, to solve their CF problems on time and budget.

We are ColdFusion experts with over 20 years in CF and 32 years in software development and we are currently moving more toward recurring maintenance projects. Michaela, the CEO, has written a best selling book on ColdFusion and hosts a podcast on it too. Also we ran the largest CF conference in the 2000s. We spearhead the CF Alive movement to modernize old apps and inspire programmers to use CF.

Working for our company is fun with lots of opportunities for growth by constantly learning new methods and ideas. Including improving your business intuition skills.

Our company culture is open, independent and collaborative.

We're a small team that consists of 14 staff in programming, marketing, admin and sales who live worldwide - currently Peru, USA, Mexico, Serbia, Macedonia, and India.

What it’s like to work with us - hear from the team:

I have been working for TeraTech for 5 years now. During that period I have grown both personally and professionally. It is a company that makes you want to improve and be a better version of yourself day by day.

Michaela Light is an inspiring leader who will challenge you to reach your fullest potential and provide you with the just-right set of tools and skills.

The atmosphere in the team is always relaxed, but professional, without any usual stresses that you might be used to. Everyone in TT is fun to work with and brings something new and fresh to the table. This makes me want to learn new stuff, and further improve.

So far I did not see any situation where I would think: "there has to be a better job than this".

Anyone new to the team will feel welcomed, greeted, and find themself in a comfortable environment altogether.

  • Paul, Marketing Manager

Michaela is a warm and sensitive manager who doesn't lose sight of running a profitable business, but at the same time encouraging and championing the growth of his employees both personally and professionally.

  • Lucy, Project Manager

I first worked for TeraTech 14 years ago as the bookkeeper. Then it was a full time Monday thru Friday office position in Rockville MD. At that time, I thought..wow! What an eclectic group we had. And now over a decade later, as I've returned for a remote position mailing and shipping gifts and books, the feeling is the same.

If you are searching for an environment that TRULY accepts the myriad of differences that we as the HUMAN RACE possess then TeraTech is the place for you.

Michaela is an amazing business owner, implementing growth and understanding not only for the business, but for us as individuals also. Ready to rise to the challenge and share your talent? We both have so much room to grow and are looking forward to your reply.

  • Kim, Bookkeeper

I’ve working with TeraTech for over 5 years as a ColdFusion developer, I’ve met very professional people in the team, I’ve gotten support to learn and attended conferences to keep up to date in new technologies and tools to improve my skills.

Although it is a remote position, there is good communication and fast response when I need assistance related to the job or any issue.

Definitely, TeraTech is a great company to work with.

  • Angel, Developer

Communication is key when working at TeraTech. I have grown to be a better communicator and a better listener during my time here. I have observed that employees are able to produce more, and better in the comfortable, accepting culture of this company. At TeraTech failures are looked at as learning opportunities and successes are celebrated.

  • Alison, Admin Assistant

TeraTech is the dream job for anyone seeking a growth-mindset and expanding their skillsets. Michaela and her team foster a collaborative environment based upon empathy, efficiency and fun! There’s a special joy in working with talented people — who also happen to remember we’re human and not machines.

  • Joe, Article Writer
