THE A-TEAM IS WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL

We recognize that our employees are a huge part of our success, and they're what makes Asymmetrik such an amazing place to come to every day.  Members of "The A-Team" are distinguished by their intellectual curiosity, a fierce desire to learn, a great sense of humor and the ability not to take themselves too seriously. 

• We demand the best from ourselves and from those we work with, and give A-Team members opportunities to discover their potential. 

• We have a modern work environment with ergonomic sit/stand desks, MacBook Pro, Slack and Google ecosystem for easy collaboration, a fully stocked kitchen with drinks and snacks, and a game room complete with foosball, ping pong and air hockey.

Family members are always welcome at social events including Happy Hours, Renaissance Festival outings, Poker Night and Movie Theater Takeovers (new Star Wars movie on opening day, anyone?)

• Our engineers hold regular Tech Exchanges to share how different teams use emerging open source technologies.


PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS

All software engineers, regardless of seniority, complete a coding challenge prior to joining our engineering team.  We recognize that autonomy, new ideas and collaboration are critical to creating an environment where engineers succeed.

Everyone, focusing on what they do best – that’s the solution for truly remarkable progress.

NIMBLE MOVES MOUNTAINS

Asymmetrik is a Maryland-based company specializing in software development and data analytics.

Since 2008, we’ve been helping government and healthcare organizations solve their toughest problems. Our small team development approach is precise and efficient, attacking complex challenges with an arsenal of software expertise, deep-dive analytics, user experience design, and research fundamentals.

DO BIG THINGS—WITH LESS

Asymmetrik is based on the concept of asymmetric contribution - the idea that minimal (but extremely talented) resources and unconventional approaches can bring about inordinate progress.

By joining with like-minded people with complementary strengths, we’ve found that it takes only a small number of good people to enact change. And, that change can be extraordinarily greater than the sum of its parts.

    I worked at Asymmetrik full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Asymmetrik fights tooth and nail to give developers all the freedoms they can and I think they are more successful at this than most other companies in the DoD field (e.g. what tech stacks to use, admin access to production machines, deployment schedules, etc).

    I felt the projects were either very interesting/creative or very purposeful (or both!) when compared to other projects I've been on in the DoD domain.

    Have you seen their office?

    Cons

    I think there are times when you work harder (maybe an extra 5 hours a week here or there) than you would at a comparable job/salary elsewhere in the area, but it was totally worth it to have all the freedoms mentioned above.
