Reston VA —Monday, Nov. 27, 2022 – MetroStar, a leading solutions and digital services provider for the public sector, is proud to announce its selection as a Foundry's Computerworld’s 2024 Best Places to Work in IT. Additionally, the company has been chosen as one of the Top Ten in IT Growth, Top Seven in Career Development and Diversity, and Top Three in Hybrid Work


A thirteen-time awardee, MetroStar attributes its success to its keen ability to challenge its people while providing great benefits and compensation. 


“MetroStar champions perpetual evolution, which includes not just how we deliver for our customers, but also how we design impactful programs for our people,” Debbie Peterson, MetroStar’s Senior Vice President of People & Culture said. “This year, we’ve seen the impacts of those innovations through increased training, certifications, and promotions across our company and a significant decrease in turnover.” 


MetroStar is an organization rooted in its belief that people always come first, and with great people come incredible ideas that foster innovative technology like Comet, an open-source design tool. Comet, a tool equipped with advanced charting and data visualization capabilities, as well as customizable components, empowers design and development teams to efficiently deliver functional solutions to users, streamlining processes and enabling teams to concentrate on their mission rather than the code. 


“Technology is playing an increasingly important role in modern business. IT professionals continue to benefit from this trend, as this year’s winning organizations increase staffing and offer a variety of pathways to upskill, reskill, and diversify their teams,” said Rob O’Regan, Foundry’s Global Director, Content Strategy. “These companies provide a model for IT and HR leaders who are looking for new ways to attract, engage, and retain talent in an increasingly competitive IT environment.” 


MetroStar strongly advocates for encouraging its people to find innovative solutions that excite them as tech enthusiasts in the industry but also excite customers looking for custom-tailored solutions built by competitive digital services. The company's research and development team, the Client Solutions Group, serves as a hub not only for industry trailblazers but also for veterans transitioning, as the group is comprised of 44 percent veterans.


MetroStar embraces agility and transformation in government services. Simultaneously, the company maintains a strategic focus in the upcoming year on expanding its core units in Defense, National Security, and Citizen Services, leveraging disruptive technologies such as AI/ML to stay at the forefront of government innovation. This approach drives revolutionary changes in data management, cybersecurity, and citizen engagement, solidifying MetroStar's position as a leader in the ever-evolving landscape of government services.
