Empower People to Change the World®
Booz Allen Commercial delivers advanced cyber defenses to the Fortune 500 and Global 2000. We are technical practitioners and cyber-focused management consultants with unparalleled experience – we know how cyber attacks happen and how to defend against them.
Learn how we’re driving empowerment, innovation, and resilience to shape our vision for the future through a focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices that matter most.
Our 32,600 engineers, scientists, software developers, technologists, and consultants live to solve problems that matter. We’re proud of the diversity throughout our organization, from our most junior ranks to our board of directors and leadership team.
Booz Allen’s connection to military clients like the Department of Defense means the firm maintains a natural presence in Hawaii. And with work that ranges from mission readiness to data science, threat reduction, engineering, and digital, Booz Allen relies on the expertise of our Hawaii team to inspire change.
While many consulting firms rely on remote or mainland workforces, Booz Allen is committed to creating opportunities for people who live in—and who are originally from—Hawaii. The firm’s broad range of work provides a unique opportunity to employ talented locals and help diversify the economy.
Ed Barnabas, a leader of Booz Allen’s Indo-Pacific region, notes that Hawaii is focused on technology adaptation and tech-enabling its workforce, and that Booz Allen has been an enabler of this vision for years. “How we support our community is as important as the mission we support for our defense partners,” Ed says. “From our efforts with FIRST Robotics and our Summer Games internship program to partnering with the Chamber of Commerce and mentoring students at the University of Hawaii College of Engineering, we believe investing in STEM efforts and connecting future technologists to careers in defense can happen in many facets and with all ages.”
What else makes the firm unique in a place filled with government and consulting influences? We spoke with a few of our team members who were born and raised in Hawaii to find out.
