Xtern Software was founded by Keir Davis in 2002. Keir was first exposed to programming on a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A. He has greatly expanded his programming abilities since then. Keir attended the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (BA) and the University of North Carolina – Greensboro (MS, Computer Science). He co-authored a book (The Definitive Guide To Linux Network Programming), and received his Amazon Web Services certification as a Solutions Architect (Associate).

Our breadth and depth of skills set us apart from others. We offer a full range of services, from software architecture to product design & development, platform integration, software maintenance, secure cloud hosting, and beyond. We employ a dedicated group of senior developers with a combined 70+ years of experience. We also offer digital marketing services to support the investment you’ve made in your business’s digital footprint. 

We are proud to call Greensboro, North Carolina, our home. Some of us were born in the Piedmont Triad, some came here for school, work, or family; but all of us are now deeply rooted in the region. Our office is located at the edge of the historic Fisher Park neighborhood in Greensboro, and we take pride in all the area has to offer. You might find us at a local restaurant for our weekly team lunch, throwing a frisbee at Latham Park, or engaging with the community through volunteer and civic organizations.
