Our success and growth is directly tied to yours.

Brilliant Engineers and an Exceptional Employer

DarkStar understands what it means to work for a great employer: to be a part of something that’s much more than just a paycheck. You should care about your mission, work with technologies you love, and respect your coworkers. DarkStar seeks true partnerships with our engineers. We value transparency, open doors, and great ideas, regardless of where they come from. You won’t find bureaucracy or ivory towers here, but you will find a company that understands your ambitions. Our success and growth is directly tied to yours.

Do The Right Work

We only pursue work that we believe is right: the right missions, the right technologies, and the right team members for the job. Our focus in these areas ensures we remain the right partner for both our employees and customers.

A Culture Driven by You

Help define your employer’s culture, rather than having it defined for you. We welcome technology geeks of all flavors. We also maintain a strict “no jerks” hiring policy. We want you to help us ensure DarkStar remains the type of employer you’ve always wanted to work with.

Beyond Standard Benefits

DarkStar provides industry-leading benefits coupled with salary ranges that our competitors are hard-pressed to match. Our efficient, low-overhead business model ensures that exceptionally talented engineers get the compensation they deserve, while still maintaining first class back-office support and a value to our customers.

Environment for Success

Mission impact, continual learning, and a healthy work-life balance are keys to success. DarkStar maintains a culture where great engineers thrive. We keep a pulse on our customers’ shifting challenges to ensure our team is ready to answer their needs in emerging technical tools and fields.

Employee Benefits Plan

The DarkStar Group provides one of the best benefits packages in the industry, carefully matched to your specific needs. Perhaps you want more time off to spend with family and friends, or you already receive health benefits elsewhere. Maybe you want a larger training or conference budget and more time for new skill development. We tailor your benefits to exceed your personal needs.

DarkStar is deeply committed to helping you and your loved ones thrive, providing generous compensation, comprehensive benefits, and the flexibility you need to enjoy a rewarding work-life balance.
