We can tell you plenty about Next Century, but our employees say it best.

“The company’s reputation precedes it. The Guidelines on the wall aren’t just smoke and mirrors; the people here truly believe and abide by them. The caliber of the people here is unrivaled. Also, despite the extremely challenging problems from customers and staff, everyone is generously rewarded for their accomplishments and no one is left unrecognized for their efforts.”


UX Designer, Employee Since 2009

“I joined Next Century because I believe the leadership conducts business with integrity and in line with their stated values. They’ve continued to demonstrate that and have earned more of my trust as I’ve worked here. I also stay because we have great employees. Our high hiring standards almost guarantee that our developers are smart team players that fit with the company culture. Next Century as a whole treats employees very well and like valued members of the same team. The leaders at the top of the company treat even the most junior employee with respect and like anyone else. There are still many more reasons that I work for Next Century such as being mission driven to save lives and make a difference. It’s also nice knowing we aren’t beholden to investors since we are privately owned.”


Software Architect, Employee Since November 2009

“From day one I was blown away by Next Century: From a superbly organized admin staff, to fun and intelligent people that I actually looked forward to seeing every day, to an honest commitment to excellence that went beyond a cheesy corporate slogan. As a new graduate, they allowed me to explore new and exciting challenges to apply my talents to until I settled on the one I wanted to make my career in, who can say their company let them do the same?”


UX Engineer, Employee Since August 2011

“I joined Next Century as an intern and immediately fell in love with the integrity and drive of the company. I was thrown into a new type of company where the CEO and COO are commonly seen around the office and truly care about the well-being and success of each individual employee from intern to principle engineer. Our leadership is very transparent and always seeking to better the company through important work over financial gain. Every project Next Century takes on is with the intent to protect the country and save lives. These values coupled with our high standards for hiring, carve a path for an incredible company. The people I work with every day are intelligent, hardworking and passionate about what they do. It rubs off on me allowing me to grow personally and professionally.”

“Basically, I’m in this industry because I want to help people. There are of course plenty of companies out there where I could keep doing that. But Next Century’s principles are compatible with my own, and now that I’m at a company where that’s true I don’t really want to go to one where it’s not.” 


Senior Software Engineer, Employee since August 2014

“I was deeply impressed from my first contact with Next Century, a sentiment that has not wavered since I joined. The projects and technologies are an interesting and challenging mix, the benefits generous and rewarding, the company mission inspiring, but most of all the employees are top notch: professional, friendly, collaborative, and smart. The management team is experienced and knows how to grow the company effectively, yet operates efficiently, maintains an open mind, and welcomes new ideas (and criticism).”


Software Engineer, Employee Since November 2007

“I love working for Next Century Corporation because for the first time in my career, I’m working on projects that save lives. And after two decades of looking for meaning in my career, ‘saving lives’ is quite frankly the only legacy I need. It took me 20 years to find this place, and every step of my long, long journey was worth it.”

“I come to work each day because I really enjoy the challenges and the people I work with on a daily basis. There’s always something to help out with, someone to help, and a team effort to strive for the goals of saving lives and protecting this country. We may not be directly on the battlefield but I have many friends serving in the United States military that are and I know how critical viable intelligence is for them on their missions. I’ve had friends come back different and some not come back at all and I am grateful to be, in some small way, a part of a group that is dedicated to ensuring they all come back home safely.”


Systems Security, Employee Since July 2015

“Working at Next Century has changed my life. As a young adult, not too many companies would provide me the same respect and opportunity as Next Century has. There is always room to grow, learn, and gain more experiences here. I have been able to work with various types of people and sample different roles in the company. I always wished I would have a job that I was motivated in and I can honestly say I don’t dread coming to work, I look forward to it! The people here are friendly and genuine, especially leadership. Next Century has a great team of leaders that are talented and knowledgeable. Many of them have an open door policy and will always help you with whatever you need. Next Century really values its employees and everyone is driven by the company’s mission which makes the work fulfilling no matter what position you have. I cannot be happier to work for somewhere so amazing and I am excited to see what lies ahead in the many years I hope to be here. ”


Office Administrator, Employee Since August 2017

“Approachable leadership! Our leadership is very down-to-earth and communication with them is very open. It’s more of a community relationship rather than a “boss and subordinate” relationship. We’re on the same team with the same goals, and we don’t put up unnecessary barriers.”


Software Engineer, Employee Since June 2012

“What I value most here is that I can take Next Century’s management at their word; there’s no double-speak or “spin” when they talk to employees.”
