While San Francisco, New York, and Seattle have long been known as meccas for tech-minded innovators, there’s a new city on the map and young professionals are flocking there: Charleston, South Carolina.
Here’s the top 5 reasons our engineering employees love working in Charleston:
1. Growing “cred” as a technology hub
As the city expands, Charleston has been outpacing the nation in technology growth. No longer the surprise player in the tech field, their growth is 26 percent faster than the national average, on par with Silicon Valley.
2. Embrace the mission attitude
Our people are passionate about supporting the warfighter, and they get plenty of opportunities to do so, including traveling overseas (and even to Antarctica!) in support of Air Force or Navy clients.
3. World class design lab
A new lab filled with the latest tech enables our experts, whether engineering, digital solutions, or cyber-focused, to create prototypes and new designs that fuel the solutions to our clients’ toughest problems.
4. Strong ties to the community
The Charleston office is a committed community partner, and demonstrate their passionate service at events. They participate in environment cleanups like Beach Sweep, support the kids at Carolina Youth Development Center during the holidays, volunteer with the Salute the Military Golf Association, and raise money to support cancer research.
Charleston has charm, beauty, thriving arts, and a dynamic food scene. Conde Nast has voted the city as a top small city for 5 years in a row. In the office, a “Ministry of Culture” volunteer club plans fun social activities like Waffle Wednesdays, themed pot lucks and chili cookoffs.
