  • Professional Development Program: We actively encourage and invest in our employees’ education and development. Be it a conference, certification, degree program, or competition—we’re behind you!
  • Strategic Innovation Group (SIG): The SIG is a multi-purpose entity nested within the Chief Operations Office. The SIG provides a select group of high-performing analysts and engineers with an opportunity to experiment and develop outside of client facing work. The SIG performs as a Business Development resource to leverage ideas and possible solutions in various spaces. And the SIG serves as an incubator for home-grown ideas (sort of like a “shark tank”) to take employee-driven analytic service and product ideas to market with the appropriate business support.
