Our People

Our diverse workforce celebrates multiple perspectives, drives collaborative thinking and decision-making, and is the foundation of innovative approaches to our customers’ missions and challenges. We are selective about growing our team, emphasizing not only a team member’s subject matter expertise, but also their work habits and style. As a result, our teams are strong and our relationships, to each other and to our clients, are collaborative, helpful and personally supportive.

DTS careers are marked by opportunity and impact.

Our Mindset

We advise our customers that continuous learning is vital to performance and increases employee satisfaction, and we practice what we preach. We personalize training and enrichment opportunities for each individual, fully funding certification courses, continuing education and advanced diploma coursework, and professional association participation and conference attendance based on their goals and interests. We also provide employees with opportunities to share their expertise or perspectives by producing explainer videos, which break complex subjects into short, easily digestible visual learning video clips to help other colleagues and customers build their knowledge base.

Our Work

DTS work includes programs of national importance. Being able to solve customer challenges and offer expertise that make a difference to these missions is rewarding. Additionally, internal recognition and celebration of project milestones, innovations and work done surrounds DTS employees in a culture of appreciation, value and support.

By design, DTS maintains a concentrated focus on the business areas in which our principals and staff have significant practical and academic expertise. This focus allows our teams to work on projects that are naturally interesting to them, with like-minded colleagues.

Our Culture

DTS is not a giant consulting firm, so our culture reflects our size, scope and team. As a company, we are adaptive, flexible, and supportive. We rally to help when deadlines approach or a task requires all-hands on deck. Mentoring is foundational to who we are, with an expectation that everyone will offer advice, feedback and on-the-job training to others more junior.

Our work requires an unusual focus and intensity so our teams really gel. We socialize together. Celebrate together. And appreciate each other for our individual contributions.

Our Benefits

We recognize that our team members are the foundation of our success and therefore it’s important to ensure stability within DTS, despite operating in a constantly changing environment.  For example, during government shutdowns and other periods of time when employees might not be completely billable or the company may not be contracted for customer work, we have continued to offer our employees the security and stability of their salary and benefits.

Our career benefits include:

  • Full medical benefits
  • Competitive salaries
  • Performance and customer satisfaction bonuses/profit sharing
  • 401K savings
  • Health Savings Accounts
  • Generous PTO and volunteer time off
  • Flexible schedules
  • Training and learning opportunities
  • Telecommuting (as contracts allow)
  • Public transportation reimbursement
