ACL exists to help make the world a safer and more ethical place. Our software platform has been used by a national agency to help track down missing children, by banks to find suspicious patterns in their data, and by a state agency to identify money laundering fronts for a drug cartel. ACL has been at the heart of investigations that have helped save millions of dollars of fraud, waste and even saved lives… talk about making an impact!
The ACL R&D Team
The R&D team extends beyond the walls of ACL and stands on the shoulders of giants. We use the innovation of technology partners like Amazon, select OEMs, and the Open Source Community to ensure we’re meeting our challenges with the most current and effective technologies. We give back by contributing time, code and support to our engineers and across the community.

As a DevOps shop, we work quickly to release new stuff on a continuous basis. We own what we build and do not pass it off to others. We continually work to reduce the time required to build and safely deploy software. Security, integrity and performance are not an afterthought. They are built into our development process. If a serious vulnerability is discovered we pause everything else and immediately resolve it.
We have a product development group of 70+ and counting (the company has over 300 employees and counting). We work in small “brigades” comprised of 5 or so Software Engineers, 2 QA Engineers, a Manager, a UX Designer, UX Developer and a Product Manager. It’s our version of a scrum team.
