Abacus Technology – Why Work For Us?

Just Right, By Choice.

To be successful in today's rapidly changing business and technology environment, you need an experienced and agile partner you can trust.

Abacus Technology has big business experience, without big business inefficiencies. We can tackle any challenge, effectively and with flexibility. As an independently-owned and operated business, we make decisions to exceed customer – not shareholder – expectations.

Our customers choose us for the first-time because they see our performance history and value. They choose us again because they have seen our results and know they can count on us. That's why we – and our customers – think of us as just right. We have the spirit of a small business but the resources, stability, and experience of something larger, by choice.

Our History

It was 1983. Microsoft Word and Lotus 1-2-3 were released. The World Wide Web did not exist. Sally Ride became the first American woman in space. American Motors' Renault Alliance was the Car of the Year.

1983 was also the same year, Dennis Yee, our President, decided to start Abacus Technology. He was the company's lone employee at the time, but since then, he has evolved our company from a one-contract transportation logistics consultancy to a communications and information technology firm with hundreds of employees supporting clients throughout the United States and abroad.

Abacus Technology has a 30-year history of solid, sustained business performance. Our track record of strong, organic growth and profitability —regardless of the state of the economy—is unrivaled. Our success is based on a proven history of outstanding project performance on contracts of all sizes, scope, and challenges. From the start, our reputation mattered, which is why we continue to produce and deliver quality solutions and services that are on-time and within budget.

Our people are the difference.

    I have been working at Abacus Technology full-time (More than 10 years)


    Abacus offers a flexible environment, if you need it and the contract / program can accommodate it. I've worked on interesting projects over time, at many different government agencies. Abacus offers great growth potential if you show you care and can handle it. Sr. Management encourages staff to provide improvement suggestions for projects and programs. Training and certifications are highly encouraged by Sr. Management and the company provides various training methods (including online, self study). Sr. Management makes an effort to get to know everyone who is on site.


    Like with most government contractors, employment can depend on contract availability. This is not an Abacus-specific challenge, though.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and continue to be interested in what is happening in the field.

    Network Management Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bedford, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Abacus Technology (Bedford, MA) in February 2016.


    Good pre-briefing by the HR Representative about the Network Management Engineering position and Benefits. The initial interview was followed immediately by the Technical Interviews. Very professional Interviewers, I was interviewed by two Engineers at the same time; however, I'm used to that and we had a great Technical Discussion about my past work experience, issues I've encountered, worked and solved and how I'd fit in at Abacus for the Engineering opportunities currently open.
