The NTC story

We are NT Concepts. NT stands for Next Tier, and represents founder Michele Bolos’ guiding principles: stay in front of the digital edge with innovation and high value delivery, and never compromise on exceptional customer service. 

For two over two decades, we’ve been building on her legacy. We’ve faced incredible challenges and monumental victories, shifted when we needed to shift, and scaled our capabilities to meet the demanding needs of our customers’ missions. We worked hard, learned a lot, and are incredibly proud of our success.

Together, we are shaping the future of NT Concepts.

As we evolved as an organization, we also evolved as an employer. At the core of our success is a team of problem-solvers and out-of-the-box thinkers who share our passion for providing the highest-quality, innovative solutions. 

We support our employees professional development with a culture that’s founded in values, driven by collaboration, and committed to the shared future of growth and success for ourselves, our partners, and our customers.
