Knowledge, teamwork, an obsession for customer service. Do you have what it takes?
The Exigent Technologies Family and Culture
We believe that the foundation of a successful business is to hire right, and then treat your employees better than your best customers. It is our experience that when we provide quality benefits, training and most importantly a supportive and fun work environment, we will attract and retain the best professionals in our industry. In turn, our customers will benefit from superior service, and our organization will continue to grow as a result.
With that in mind, we go to great lengths to ensure that each and every new hire brings to the table something much more than just an impressive resume. We take our time to ensure that a potential hire could thrive in our corporate culture, as well as live and work in alignment with the core values that form the very foundation of who we are as an organization. We look for folks that have what it takes in both aptitude and heart to ultimately be a true contributor and continuously raise the bar when it comes to delivering.
Working at Exigent
Time and time again, when employees are surveyed through a third party regarding why they love Exigent, the top three reasons given are always the people, the supportive environment, and the fun-loving culture. It is our belief that this is the primary reason why our turnover rate is significantly lower than many of our industry peers. However, there are a few other reasons why it’s pretty cool to work at Exigent…
We’re structured differently
While our leadership team is comprised of successful industry veterans and thought leaders, it’s largely our employees that drive our direction in many critical areas. We achieve this through an Open Books and Open Doors approach, and via regular employee participation within various committees. Some examples include:
– Our Technical Excellence Committee allows all engineers to have a say in such things as the adoption of new technologies, and establishing new best practices or standards. After all, who knows more about what works and what doesn’t than those that are hands-on with the technology each day?
– Our Exigent Morale Committee expands the team of folks that focus on ensuring our workweek experience is exactly as we want and need it to be – fun, pleasant, exciting, and in alignment with our values. With both the budget and the authority to make real-time decisions in terms of workweek events and in-office purchases, this committee helps to ensure morale, employee wellness, and work-life balance always remain at optimal levels.
Perhaps most importantly: while our customers and employees can count on the enterprise-like reliability, consistency and efficiency that is a result of an extremely process-driven operational style, we embrace change and progress when it’s necessary, and we abhor ultra-rigidity and red tape. This balance between structure and adaptability allows us to take advantage of the constant flow of great ideas our committees and Open Books and Open Doors approach invites.
We deliver IT differently
Delivering a full array of IT services and solutions requires experts in a lot of different areas of expertise. Solving a technical problem requires a different skillset than executing upon a project plan. Performing high-level solutions design and delivering strategic guidance as a virtual CIO also require different skills. That’s why we have separate teams and departments for each type of service offering. The net result is a more structured and consistent experience for employees, a higher-quality product for customers, and increased opportunities for structured career advancement.
We have fun!
Last, but certainly not least, we sincerely believe a day without a smile or laugh is a wasted day, and that all work and no play most certainly makes Jack a dull boy. So, while we value hard work, we also take time to have fun. Some of our activities include:
- Free Lunch Fridays
- Game Nights
- Movie Nights
- Summertime BBQ’s
- Happy Hours
- Cigar Outings
- Beer o’clock Fridays
- Fantasy Football
- Office PlayStation console
- Standard-issue Nerf Guns
- … and more!

So, are you hiring??
Exigent-caliber employees learned early-on that there are no shortcuts to true, lasting success. As a result, through years of sacrifice, hard-work, and study, they often arrive at their first interview as a current or soon-to-be top performer in their respective role or the industry. Yet, despite being so driven, confident, and highly motivated, they are humble and able to leave their ego at the door in order to work with a team to achieve our collective goals.
Even more importantly, the typical Exigent engineer is a positive-minded extrovert that loves working with people, and understands that a great attitude, exemplary Customer Service and constant eye on customer satisfaction are just as important as a healthy server or network.
