Careers

When you join Ridgeline, you are not joining a contract, you are joining a community.

Ridgeline is not your typical government contractor. We’re a tech company first - we just happen to do business with the US Government. As an employee, you’ll work across many projects; it’s rare that you’ll focus on any one contract or one client. We don’t sell butts in seats and never intend to. Most of our employees work onsite in our Tysons office, not tucked away on a client site. In addition, we believe in R&D as a foundational principle for the whole company. This means that if you have an idea to solve a problem for a client, you’ll likely get the time, resources, and encouragement you need to pursue it.

Life at Ridgeline

Our people matter. We know everyone says that - here’s how we prove it:

  • We’ll contribute 20% of your base salary to your 401k, regardless of whether or not you contribute anything at all. This is our way of saying, “Thanks for taking a chance on us and helping us build this company.”
  • We have a self-managed PTO plan. As a company, we want to support a holistic and engaged lifestyle; we want you to enjoy life outside of work - and we want you to take care of yourself and the people you love when you need to. Burnout is bad for both you and us.
  • We have flexible work schedules. You’ll be able to work with your supervisor to figure out what’s best for your situation (we all know the chaos of living in the DMV).
  • We’ll give you $2500 each year to buy clothes. When you look good, you feel good. And we think it’s just kind of fun!
  • We’ll give you $2000 each year to spend on a hobby. We want our people to be bursting with creativity and innovative ideas. That doesn’t happen in a vacuum! We want to support interesting endeavors and believe it pays off for us in the long run.
  • We have a sweet office space that’s right on the Silver Line, with nitro cold brew on tap, sparkling water, legit snacks, and oodles of natural light. We like being here!
  • We are well resourced and will make sure you have what you need to do your job well. Get the technology and training you need – we’re a learning organization.
  • We’ll treat you like an adult and give you a voice. We want you to build this company with us. We’re figuring it out together and creating something special. We want you to speak up and help make this the kind of company you want to work for. We like it here and like each other.
"The systems I build directly impact our clients' ability to do their job every day. It helps keep them safe. Getting things right on my end is really important."
