Company Culture

IDT is a growing company with a vibrant, entrepreneurial culture. We are headquartered in Arlington, Virginia with additional offices in Fall River, MA; Mount Laurel, NJ; and San Diego, CA. At each location, our employees work together in modern, well-equipped office space, designing innovative solutions for our defense industry customers.

IDT values collaboration and sponsors a variety of activities to keep team members connected and informed. Employees gather regularly for All Hands Meetings, during which they hear directly from our CEO. Each winter, we host a festive and informative Employee Appreciation Dinner. During the work day, employees come together for more casual social events such as IDT Monthly Lunches, Chili Cook-offs, and Smoothie Breaks. Still hungry? Dig into our snack baskets or grab a sparkling water from the fridge!

Each month during Tech Connect presentations and Brown Bag Lunches, IDT employees have the opportunity to share technology and business ideas with their colleagues. These events offer a unique venue for collaboration and innovation.

Another hallmark of IDT’s culture is community involvement and support of local and nationwide non-profits. The company is particularly interested in those with a military focus, such as Operation Gratitude and the Semper Fi Fund. Since 2015, we have partnered with Operation Gratitude to provide items for the care packages they send to deployed troops. Employees have written letters, made paracord survival bracelets, and generously donated a wide variety of needed items to this organization.

During the summer months, IDT hosts a highly selective internship program. College-aged interns are placed at the company’s various locations based on interests and skills. While employed, they gain valuable, hands-on programming experience and are managed and mentored by IDT engineers.

IDT has been honored to receive some notable recognition. The company has been named one of the 20 Most Promising Defense Technology Solution Providers by CIO Review. It has been recognized by the Washington Business Journal as one of the 50 Fastest Growing Companies in the DC region. Additionally, IDT was named Government Contractor of the Year by the Small and Emerging Contractors Forum (SECAF).
