Padre is a special company:  not too big; not too small; dedicated to client success; and one that values its people.  We are a company of diverse individuals with a broad range of capabilities.  I really appreciate Padre’s founding partners, who care about employees and offer a great benefits package and industry-leading insurance options.  Padre has supported me in both professional and personal growth including post-graduate education and professional certifications.
