Life at Apogee
We’re always on the look-out for new Apogee-niuses!
Apogee Integration is not a conventional company, and we don’t intend to become one. True, we strive to emulate the attributes of the world’s most successful organizations – a focus on innovation, entrepreneurship, and smart business practices comes to mind – but even as we continue to grow, we’re committed to retaining a small-company feel. At Apogee, we know that every employee has something important to say, and that every employee is integral to our success.
Apogee has projects throughout the Washington D.C. Metro area, but regardless of where we are, we nurture an invigorating, positive environment by hiring talented people who share our commitment for creating engineering perfection and want to have a great time doing it. Apogee-niuses thrive in small, focused teams and high-energy environments, believe in the ability of technology to change the world, and are as passionate about their lives as they are about their work.
