About Jinba IT

What’s in a name?

Our name Jinba IT is derived from the Japanese term Jinba Ittai人馬一体 which translates as the unity of horse and rider as one body. The term is commonly associated with 4th Century horse archers called Yabusame. 

The Yabusame believed that over time, a symbiotic relationship developed between horse and rider, eventually allowing them to operate as a single being. Even the slightest shift in weight or focus by the rider or the horse causing a reflected reaction in the other. 

At Jinba IT, we draw on the ancient wisdom of the Jinba Ittai philosophy as we strive to create a truly balanced relationship between business (the rider) and Information Technology (the horse).

The Jinba IT Story

Jinba IT was founded by experienced IT professionals who had become disillusioned with the status quo within the IT services, consulting, and support industry. 

After several years of grand philosophical debates over many beers, the idea of Jinba IT was formed. 

We created Jinba IT as an agile start-up Managed Service Providerin order to provide simplify and streamline unnecessary IT spend, with the goals and objectives of our client’s business at the heart of everything we do. 

Compounded by a focus upon the utilisation, optimisation, cost streamlining, and automation of IT, we have been able to apply modern day thinking in order to provide true value, expertise, and long term solutions to our clients.
