Best Places spotlight: Sev1Tech offers top benefits and career development

Employees enjoy challenging work in a supportive environment.

IT pros at Sev1Tech don't have to worry about alignment with business goals; they are the business.

The Woodbridge, Va.-based IT services provider offers challenging work and a supportive environment to the approximately 75 tech employees who make up nearly the entire company staff, according to Brian McIntyre, vice president of cybersecurity and IT.

While IT employees work at client sites, he notes, they stay connected through the company's communication and collaboration tool. "It's a shared and trusted community that they know they can use for help," he says.

Deputy project manager Jessica Perez says she joined the company two years ago because it offered her opportunities to learn new skills and grow professionally. "With Sev1Tech, I felt those doors were wide open," she says. Managers "are always looking for ways to professionally bring you up."

The four-year-old company also provides outstanding benefits, including funding for career development and three paid days annually for employees to volunteer in the community.
