Meet the Team

Our team is comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds.  Each brings a different set of skills to our team.  We are organized in a horizontal management style so there are few official titles with an organizational hierarchy devoid of traditional top-down management.

Rob Hohman

HardScrabble Solutions staffs a talented team of interns and helps each individual develop their professional capacities and portfolios.  Our interns learn valuable lessons about the workplace cultures and enhance technical skills to take with them into the business world.
