About Hammrtech LLC
Hammrtech was born out of the passions of Hammrtech President Steve Ditmer. Steve began Hammrtech in 1995. Steve has a wealth of experience to draw from, not only in web development, but in the business world. Steve worked in management for a variety of companies, including electronics distributors, food service, manufacturing, and warehouse industries in the 1970s and 1980s. He was always innovative and worked to improve these businesses. While Steve worked for WNS, Inc, during the late 1980s early 1990s, he implemented a Micro server that was able to handle the company’s distributions software, streamlining the operations. From the late 1990s to the mid- 2000s, Steve helped form an online retail company for high end home improvement products. He and his partner used a strategy of optimizing search engine results with great success. Today, he combines his depth of experience in business operations and in IT solutions to provide insight and guidance as we at Hammrtech focus on meeting the needs of our clients.
Andrew Ditmer joined Hammrtech in 2009 while he was finishing his Education in Computer Science and Military Science at East Tennessee State University.

He found a great solution in a small company called Xamarin. Andrew loved their product so much he joined their team full time in 2013 and helped build their company. Xamarin was acquired by Microsoft in 2016. Andrew now works on Applied AI and Intelligent Apps. He has recently built apps that leverage natural language processing, computer vision, speech to text, text to speech, and knowledge mining.
