Josh Nunes

Josh Nunes

Founder & Senior Systems Engineer

An entrepreneurial spirit. Two decades of deep information technology experience. A desire to provide budget friendly, enterprise level solutions for small business owners. These factors led Josh to launch Auriga Technology in 2009.

Before Auriga, Josh served as Director of IT for a San Francisco based boutique Investment Bank. He solved difficult problems on the ground level alongside people who shared a common vision. This hands-on, servant leadership approach has never left Josh—he brings it to Auriga everyday.

Masterful at building relationships, Josh fosters strong, long-lasting partnerships with his teammates and Technology Service Partners to ensure that Auriga clients always have access to affordable, leading edge IT solutions.

Over the past twenty-five years, James has launched and led multiple tech-based small businesses. He’s equal parts senior systems engineer, project manager, and business consultant. As a details guy and strategic thinker, James knows what it takes to effectively operate and grow a small business.

James believes IT solutions should fundamentally improve the way we work and collaborate with one another. And, core network, cloud-based solutions, cyber security, and preventative maintenance all need to work in concert to achieve a sum that is far greater than individual parts.
