Kingfisher Systems – Why Work For Us?

Kingfisher Systems, Inc., is a U.S. Government contractor providing support and solutions to the U.S. Government to improve economic and National Security. Each of the principal owners of Kingfisher Systems, Inc. have a military background and are service-disabled veterans. Kingfisher Systems, Inc. senior leadership also includes key personnel who have a history of distinguished military and Government service. In addition to their previous service, members of the company’s corporate structure continue to remain engaged with the Federal Government, and the Department of Defense in particular, by providing consulting services to senior Federal Government personnel and through the publication of articles in professional periodicals.undefined

The company’s first priority is on always meeting and exceeding customer requirements and expectations. Kingfisher Systems, Inc.’s senior leadership includes recognized Intelligence, Law Enforcement, Information Technology, and Cyber experts. Kingfisher Systems, Inc. actively draws upon this expertise to help Government customers, often at no expense, find innovative solutions to improve their operations at a lower cost to the U.S. taxpayer.

With many of Kingfisher Systems, Inc.’s employees having spent careers in service to U.S., either in the military or as career intelligence officers, Kingfisher is in a unique position to understand the difficulties and challenges faced by Government leaders. Kingfisher Systems, Inc. uses this understanding to deliver timely service and to provide quality products to the U.S. Government. This sense of service and commitment is at the center of Kingfisher Systems, Inc.’s attention to the continually changing national security environment so the company can rapidly innovate, transform, and accelerate processes and technology in support of our customers.

In the end, the strength of Kingfisher Systems, Inc. as a service provider to the U.S. Government is in our commitment to our employees.  Kingfisher Systems, Inc.’s employee focus, including benefits, education, professional advancement, and maintaining a high commitment to ethics and integrity, allow Kingfisher Systems, Inc. to provide the highest caliber support and services at the most affordable possible cost to the U.S. taxpayer.  As an S Corporation, Kingfisher is also committed to ensuring its employees share in the company’s success, including optimizing employee sharing in the company’s success in a variety of ways, including stock ownership and profit sharing.

Our Vision

We will be a leading National Security Company that empowers our employees to provide our customers unparalleled operational and technical services

Our Missionundefined

We are a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business focused on the design, development and delivery of national security, systems, solutions and services. We provide a broad base of technical and professional capabilities necessary to help our customers defeat threats to our National Security.

Our Values

  • Integrity
  • Commitment to Customer
  • Innovation
  • Excellence
  • Passion for Mission
  • Responsiveness

We are excited that you are considering joining our growing team. We believe Kingfisher Systems, Inc. is different because of our commitment to shared values. In a very real sense, Kingfisher Systems, Inc. is a 21st century, high technology company guided by 18th century American values:  trust, integrity, determination, moral courage, service, tradition, and family. Living and working by these values makes a difference–one that our customers recognize and value. Some say such values are no longer fashionable; we say they are fundamental to our success. undefined

Our foremost priority is to serve our clients and employees alike with a deep corporate commitment to values, service, and personal attention. Kingfisher was founded by dedicated and experienced former or retired government professionals and military veterans who sought a new and better way to continue to serve our nation’s most critical mission—national security—at a higher standard of commitment and excellence than is typically found in the government contracting industry. All of our corporate officers have experience in both the public and private sectors, and are ready to help you make the same transition they have made, or to further you along your professional journey of growth and advancement. At Kingfisher, our employees are our most important asset and our primary investment. We believe in nurturing that investment with thoughtful and competitive benefits and compensation for the important work our people do and passion for mission they display for our clients. Since the beginning, these principles and our excellent record of service and support to our clients have helped demonstrate why Kingfisher is different from other companies, and why we continue to thrive.

If a small, close-knit, mission-focused, people-first company is for you, then apply today to start the process towards joining our team and experiencing the Kingfisher difference.

Our employees are our most important asset.

    I have been working at Kingfisher Systems full-time (More than 5 years)


    Small company, personal attention, good benefits, interesting jobs. I’m so glad I found Kingfisher! I feel they genuinely care about their employees and do everything they can to support our customer’s mission.


    Due to the nature of contracting work, it can be hard to connect face-to-face with managers. But email, phone, text contact with managers is outstanding. They’re always available to me.
