Frontier Technology Inc – Why Work With Us?

FTI History
FTI was founded in Santa Barbara, California, in May of 1985 by Mr. Lavon F. Jordan, and Mr. Joseph S. Hashem. The company spent the first five years servicing the Air Force aircraft community predominantly via its second office in Dayton, Ohio. From 1990 to 1995, FTI expanded its offerings, increased the win rate in Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs and established a core business base in space systems. During the next four years, a powerful set of IT offerings were developed, and Military Space and ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance) were expanded as core business elements. From 2000 through 2005, in an effort to create synergy and market focus, numerous business areas were refined and consolidated, while FTI strategically acquired compatible companies.  In July 2004, FTI spun-out Commercial IT as a wholly-owned subsidiary of FTI.

During its more than 30 year history, FTI has steadily developed its sterling reputation and goodwill, in the highly competitive arena of government support, the backbone of the Company. FTI has evolved from their 1980's focus of primarily providing services for the Air Force, to now supporting nearly every branch of the DoD and more. These services are then supported by an impressive range of FTI developed, and other best-of-breed software products.

Today, FTI is blessed to have incredibly talented staff, supporting proactive clients, that recognize FTI as a Trusted Source for using Innovation to deliver Informed, Productive and Secure Decisions, and Solutions. Our suite of Operational and Life Cycle Decision Aids enables our talented staff, and subcontractors, to empower our customers to a new level of confidence, in the critical decisions that define their organizations. This unique combination of employees, clients, and innovation has caused FTI to grow over 150% in the last 24 months.

FTI 4th C in Action

FTI is anchored by its 4 C’s: Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity, which define our culture. FTI’s community involvement and outreach is embedded in the commitment to the 4th C of “charity.”  Just examples within the last year include  FTI being the first company to fully sponsored an entire Dayton Honor flight paying forward our respect to Veterans.  What an honor it was to have employees from different states get to be escort of many veterans to experience of the nation’s capital and monuments.  We seek all of our offices to get involved in supporting those around us in need.  For example in Ohio, FTI is a continuous sponsor to the Cincinnati and Dayton Walk to end Alzheimer’s and St Vincent DePaul’s mission of meeting the community’s basic needs enabling human dignity and integrity through donations of clothing, food, and other basic necessities.

FTI’s success is rooted in an extremely talented and diverse staff that is passionate about each other, our customers, and our community.    FTI is an equal opportunity employer and believe our mission focus and holistic alignment through our 4 C’s are what enable us to make the world more informed, productive and secure.

 FTI has you covered

We take care of our employees in more ways than one. Our competitive benefits package includes Premium Medical, Vision, Dental, Life Insurance, Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance, Long-Term Sick Leave, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), and more.

FTI Work-Life

At FTI, we believe that quality time outside the office is vital to our employees’ satisfaction at work. That’s why our flexible PTO plan encourages team members to take time off, so they can come back refreshed. We offer additional programs and options such as;  Jury Duty Pay, Bereavement Leave, Military Leave, Short-Term Disability Leave, Long-Term Disability Leave, Educational Assistance, and more.

FTI Compensation

We’re serious about sharing in FTI’s successes. FTI’s Compensation plan is designed to motivate and reward employees for their experience, skills, engagement, and contributions to both our customers and FTI’s success. These compensations include: Base Pay, 401(k) Plan and Company Matching Contribution, Employee Stock Ownership Option, Annual Bonus Eligibility, and more.

Staying Informed

At FTI we’re dedicated to ensuring all employees have the information they need to do their jobs well. Our monthly All Hands meetings, weekly staff meetings, email engagement surveys are just a few of the programs we at FTI run to bring our multiple offices together, and share key aspects of the business across the entire organization.

    I have been working at Frontier Technology Inc full-time (More than a year)


    The FTI culture of Core Values, Commitment, Compassion, and Charity is REAL. and not just marketing!

    Company is growing at a 20-30% and has tremendous team and personal advancement opportunities.

    Senior management is genuine and cares.


    Nothing yet. Any company growing from 80 to 400 people in a few short years will have bumps...but I'd rather be a part of growth than decline.
