Work & Life at DRT

Inspire. Enrich. Connect.

The mingling of fun and fulfillment -- at work and outside of work -- is a core value of ours. While jobs in the consulting and government contracting space don’t always lend themselves to the nine-to-five, you help make this company successful when you take care of yourselves, your families, and your communities

We believe happy employees = ecstatic customers. 

To foster a fun and enriching environment, DRT provides professional development programs that actively support lifelong learning and recognize long-term commitment, including a meaningful bonus for five years of service. 

DRT also sponsors social events that foster teamwork and camaraderie – an epic, annual DRT holiday celebration as well as service projects that celebrate employee initiatives and causes.

Focus on doing GREAT work together at DRT's new Arlington headquarters.

DRT Work Inspires New Digs

Check out DRT's ultra-modern new headquarters in Arlington, VA, right across from the Balston metro station and walking distance in every direction to great restaurants.  The new office has two expresso bars, various meeting hubs, tons of light, and a huge wrap- around terrace for working outside – and for happy hours when the work is done.

The new headquarters is a space that reflects how DRTers work…demonstrably open with collaborative design elements to ignite effective team work, yet with different areas where you can get away, think, and create.

“After college, I joined DRT and love it! The culture here fosters an environment of continuous learning, mentoring, work-life balance, and the opportunities for me to grow -- both as an individual and in my career.”

- Jack Collins, Senior Associate at DRT


"I am so proud to work at DRT. The company so clearly cares about associates and new grads. I also like that DRT is authentic. Our CEO comes to All Hands’ meetings and shares exactly what’s going on with the company. I have learned so much because of this transparency." 

-  Victor Esposito, Associate I, FDA Biologics Evaluation and Research


"Everyone is very forthcoming and willing to lend a hand at DRT. Moving to D.C. from New Jersey, starting a new job, and getting to know the other associates has all been great. I also enjoy attending DRT events and the holiday party was super fun. Now that I am settling in, I'll be the one who welcomes new faces."

 - Meghan Haas, Associate I, FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health Information Management

Susan Kidd, founder and CEO at DRT.

Leadership's Intent

We invite you to look closely at the intent of our leadership team.

Our CEO, Susan Kidd, together with hundreds of DRTers who have joined her since the company’s origin in 2004, led the company from modest beginnings to a high-growth performer.

Susan and the leaders of the company continue to value and cultivate the attributes on which DRT’s success was built:

  • Agile and excellent problem-solving.
  • All hands-on-deck spirit of collaboration.
  • Love of learning and sharing knowledge.
  • An approach that eschews drama, focusing on moving forward.
  • Entrepreneurial zeal in pursuit of new opportunities.
  • Enjoyment of professional life, with a priority on work-life harmony.

The leadership team has an insatiable desire to optimize the employee experience, to be a meaningful incubator for professional and personal excellence. They heavily invest in employees – with generous performance awards, rich benefit programs, community charities, after-work fun, and epic holiday celebrations.

Susan is a woman of integrity and high values and her focus on strong character cascades throughout the organization. Though she is CEO of one of the fastest growing IT firms in government, she is accessible and will have your back.

If you are considering a position at DRT, you have discovered a special place to nurture your career.
