8th Light merges with Madriska

I am thrilled to announce that 8th Light has agreed to merge with Madriska, the general web-development consultancy based in Chicago. Madriska’s owner and only full-time employee, Brad Ediger, will join our team as a Technical Expert.

8th Light first worked with Brad and Madriska on a client project in 2012. Brad had already been operating Madriska for seven years, and 8th Light was just beginning to accelerate our growth from a single office in Chicago. We enjoyed working together then, and have kept in touch regularly in the seven years leading up to our official merger today.

Brad has a long history of making a large impact on long-running projects for a variety of clients. Brad will continue working with Madriska’s existing clients as he makes the transition, and our team will help augment his services and support these engagements in every way possible.

Additionally, Brad will provide mentorship for our team and expert consulting for our clients on a variety of deeply technical problem domains.

Brad’s shared passion for continual learning and world-class client service makes him an ideal fit for our team, and we are excited about the opportunity to work together to build productive long-term partnerships with our clients, our employees, and the software community around the world.
