Saturn Systems Named to List of “100 Best Companies to Work For”

March 13, 2017

Saturn Systems, a Duluth-based software engineering firm, has been named to the 2017 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For by Minnesota Business Magazine. This marks the company’s third consecutive year on the list.

“Our success to date can be attributed to the outstanding quality of our staff,” said Jon Anderson, Director of Operations. “We aim to attract and retain the best talent and foster a culture in which our employees feel challenged and rewarded by their work. Winning this award for the third year in a row confirms we are headed in the right direction.”

Saturn Systems provides custom software development solutions nationwide, across a variety of industries. The company’s focus ranges from project-based development and quality assurance testing to fully integrated staff augmentation teams.

“Turnover is a significant factor in our industry,” said Scott Risdal, VP of Business Development. “This can often lead to higher costs and longer project completion times as new staff members are brought up to speed. We have been fortunate to maintain average turnover rates that are well below 10%, providing our customers with confidence that their investment in our team will remain stable into the future.”

Saturn Systems operates under a Rural Outsourcing business model which allows the company to offer domestic programming services at lower rates from company locations in Duluth and Grand Rapids, Minnesota. This efficient cost structure, combined with highly skilled engineers and low staff turnover make Saturn Systems a compelling alternative to offshore and expensive metro services.
