Company holidays and paid time off (PTO)
Regular (Core) Working Hours
Our primary customer is the United States Federal government located in and around Washington, DC. So, our core working hours are:
- Monday through Friday
- 9 am to 5 pm
- Eastern Time
- EST (UTC-05:00)
- EDT (UTC-04:00)
Sometimes people start a bit late and work 10 am - 6pm. We do have some west coast folks (California, Washington state, Hawaii) so on a team basis, we may have our first morning standup a bit later in the day (11 am - 1 pm). So, schedules might be a bit flexible based on your client and team. Regardless, like most companies, we expect you to give a day's work for a day's pay, i.e., 8 productive hours per day, 5 days per week.
We are an American company that observes the following U.S. Federal Holidays:

We try to shut down the last week of December, but this is not always possible depending on the mission and client needs.
Paid Time Off (PTO)
Generally speaking, we have a flexible work schedule with unlimited paid time off. Family and personal health always come first. If you need to take time off for any reason, please coordinate 360 degrees with your team, let them know your plans, and take the time that you need. Having said that, there may also be times when you need to work evenings, weekends, or holidays. So, work when you need to work, take time off when you need to take time off. Please don't abuse our flexible PTO policy.
