Working at KEYW

Grow Your Vision Here

KEYW is an idea marketplace comprised of engineers, analysts, innovators, developers, and leaders. We give our employees the power to make contributions immediately, grow quickly, and progress as fast as their talents and drive will let them. Our generous benefits package complements our salary structure and confirms our commitment to maintaining a rewarding and enjoyable work environment.

Benefits Package

We operate in a competitive market for highly-skilled technical and management staff who also hold high-level security clearances. As a result, we offer a superior, complete compensation program. Our benefits package is available to all of our full-time employees and includes health, dental, and vision insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, long-term care, paid time off, company contributions under our 401(k) plan, and an employee stock purchase program.

Work-Life Balance

The KEYW Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) program combines our commitment to the KEYW community with our sense of fun and spontaneous giving. We offer free or matching funds for employee charities of choice, game nights, and other social and recreational causes.

Employees attend company events throughout the year, such as the annual Winter Party at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium and our summer picnic where the senior managers volunteer in a pie toss, all for charity and good fun. We host cookouts in the summer and regularly sponsor chili cook-offs and other employee events. Some other MWR benefits include:

  • Fall Festival with tickets to the Virginia International Gold Cup
  • Free Orioles, Nationals, Ravens, and Capitals tickets
  • Employee Appreciation Days
  • One Year Anniversary Luncheons

Health and Wellness

KEYW maintains a popular Employee Wellness program with the goal to provide environmental and social support for a healthy workplace. KEYWellness encourages employee physical, emotional, and intellectual health via a number of activities that support positive lifestyle changes. For example, we sponsor team-based weight loss competitions, exercise programs, educational seminars, and awareness activities for dental health and nutrition. Several KEYW office locations also have in-house fitness areas for exclusive employee use.
