This year marks AnaVation’s 10th Anniversary! Over the past decade, we have been proud to have grown in numbers, meaningful work, and community. We started driven by “the idea of the possible.” That through the integration of technical skills and thoughtful innovation, AnaVators could solve the problems of the future. Ten years later, that mission still drives us.

Founded in 2013, we started as a group driven by a common purpose to support our customers’ most critical missions. By the second year, we had over 30 AnaVators working hard. By 2015, two years in, we had a team of just under 50. With that team, we won our first Washington Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” award and are proud to have claimed the accolade every year since, landing the No. 2 spot on the list multiple years in a row. In 2016, we won our first prime contract with the FBI and have continued to support them and similar customers through other prime contracts. We welcomed our first class of interns in the summer of 2017; this past year, we had a class twice the size and look forward to welcoming many back as full-time AnaVators this year. In 2020, we, and the rest of the world, were thrown into a pandemic, yet our commitment to delivering extreme excellence for our customers only strengthened. In 2022, we grew to over 200 people! Every year we are impressed by the outstanding work our teams create for our customers. From cyber and investigative systems to big data and cloud solutions, we are eager to tackle any challenges our customers are faced with.

Our success would not be possible without the teams of brilliant AnaVators and the community they create daily. Their commitment to creating engaging environments for customers has been instrumental in our success and, in turn, created a thriving community for each other. We’ve been named one of Washington’s Best Places to Work for seven years. It would be easy to attribute this recognition to just one facet of our dynamic community: our affinity groups, our summer picnics, our holiday parties, or our monthly poker games. It could be our Wellness Challenges or our fantasy football league, but none of these features alone could encapsulate everything that makes AnaVation the company it is. In truth, it’s a combination of what each AnaVator brings to the table; the amalgamation of our strengths propels us forward, and we look forward to all we will accomplish.

Thank you to all who have made the past 10 years possible — here is to the next 10!

Positive impacts are easier to put effort into when the work is meaningful.
