For entry level positions we look for someone with solid basic computerand internet skills who wants to learn more about technology, the consulting business and working with government clients. For higher level positions we look for people with the skills and experience to help our clients.  In both cases, attitude and approach are far more important than prior experience. We like to work with people who love their work and who care passionately that their work matters.  It is important to us that everything we do brings real value to our clients, we only work with people who feel the same way.

The work we do varies widely in both form and intensity. We use a lot of specialized approaches, software and systems and we invite people to help us find and build new ones. We need people who are self directed and quick learners.  In exchange we can give fair compensation, a flexible full or part time schedule and a great opportunity to learn.
