Why work here?
TISTA was founded on two key principals: put our employees first and be an integral part of our local community. We know that by serving our employees and our communities well, that unparalleled service to our customers will naturally follow.  With that as a foundation, our organization recognizes that our veterans, military spouses, and those that actively serve in the Reserves or National Guard bring valuable skillsets and work ethic to our industry. TISTA strives to continually focus on and provide benefits to the veteran and military community to ensure that we can attract, engage, develop, and retain a diverse and talented workforce.   
Veteran hiring
A Service-Disabled Veteran founded TISTA so we understand the challenges veterans face transiting to the workforce.  Our veteran workforce enjoys great benefits such as an accelerated Paid Time Off (PTO) accrual schedule and a generous ($5k per year!) tuition reimbursement plan.  We have regular town hall meetings for our veterans to provide the opportunity to connect with our vets nationwide.  For those serving in guard duty or receiving annual training, TISTA keeps your compensation whole while you serve for 2 weeks (80 hours) annually.
We believe we stand out to veterans because we provide an environment that fosters innovation, creativity, diversity, and quality. And, we invest continually in our employees and our Technology Group to deliver solutions that make a difference.
We're proud of what we’ve accomplished and others think so too! We were thrilled to be selected by the Washington Business Journal in 2019 as a Top Veteran-Owned Company (Ranked #5).
