Our Story

With headquarters in the greater St. Louis region, UNCOMN provides industry-leading business-to-business management and technology consulting services. We are a diverse group of engineers, architects, analysts, hackers, and geeks who thrive on finding elegant solutions to wickedly complex organizational, logistic, process, data, and technical problems.

In August 2010, retired United States Navy officer Jason Carter founded the company as “Aegis Strategies,” a consulting firm providing IT portfolio management services for United States Transportation Command. In November 2018, Aegis was re-branded as UNCOMN, reflecting that we hire uncommon people, with an uncommon purpose, making an uncommon impact in the communities in which we live, work and play.

Along the way, UNCOMN has become one of the nation’s fastest-growing businesses and best places to work. We are a three-time recipient of INC 5000’s Fastest Growing Private Companies in America and were the #1 fastest growing company of any kind in the St. Louis region in 2017, as recognized by the St. Louis Business Journal.

Now with 3 partners and well over 100 team members, we take pride in customizing our capabilities to solve the problems of our many public- and private-sector clients. We are always seeking ways to improve ourselves and contribute to our communities, having served as the Founding Sponsor of the Midwest Cyber Center and received ISO 9001:2015 Quality Certification, the highest standard for customer and regulatory quality management.

This quality is reflected in receiving 100% “Very Good” or “Excellent” feedback from our clients since our inception, being recognized two years running by the St. Louis Post Dispatch as a Top Workplace (and in 2018 as #1 in Employee Communications), and receiving excellent feedback from our own team members, as reflected in our Glassdoor ratings.

UNCOMN Team Members

At UNCOMN, our team of thought-leaders brings clarity to complex technical systems and processes through curiosity, collaboration, and pure grit.

We apply our domain knowledge, technical expertise and an agile systems engineering approach, which enable us to forge elegant, practical solutions and avoid further development of unintended consequences.

The integration of four-core capabilities gives us an edge over competitors who often create siloed solutions. We apply functional knowledge, technical expertise and economic assessment to the whole as well as the parts, providing solutions that improve enterprise-wide.

Using a model-based systems engineering approach, we communicate with stakeholders throughout, take only thoughtful actions and fine-tune as needed. This empowers us to improve processes, develop solutions and assist in implementing organizational change without compromising integrity.

We work with you, respecting your feedback throughout the process and establishing measurable goals that keep us accountable. We respond to change rather than simply follow a plan.

In everything we do, we pursue truth, goodness, and beauty. We put people first and hire for the long-term, not for the contract. We put the right people in the right roles. We work with rigor, transparency, and excellence – doing whatever it takes while upholding unquestionable integrity, from start to finish. And we do so with the intention of making our team, clients, and communities better along the way.

We’d love to find a way to collaborate with you!
