The NT Concepts difference

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Northern Virginia, NT Concepts is a privately owned, rapidly growing mid-tier solving the hardest challenges in national security—complex problems of scale defined by dynamic and undefined mission sets and environments. We operate with the program management and processes of a large business, but with the agility and culture of a start-up. Our integrated teams have deep industry experience, disciplined cloud/software/data engineering practices, and apply cutting-edge AI/ML solutions to achieve maximum impact at the speed of mission.

People. Technology. Mission impact for our national security. That intersection is why I choose to work here.
