Kevin Hunt, Intern Class of 2019

“I love interning for a company that values me regardless of my rank. The opportunity to contribute to real-world customer projects has been invaluable to my education.”

My time with Novetta has been so much more than an internship. At every turn, Novetta makes it clear that I am a highly-valued asset. I’m working in various fields of Data Science and Machine Learning while contributing to customer projects, gaining insight into the Intelligence Community, and serving my country. My work is fascinating, the people are wonderful, and it’s easy to see a future here with Novetta.


Brian Uri, Intern Class of 2000

“I came for the chance to contribute real code for real customers, and stayed for a career filled with smart people working together to solve problems that matter.”

I started my software engineering internship at one of Novetta’s legacy companies and was immediately immersed in a positive mentoring environment. Though “big data” has grown since then, Novetta employees are unchanged in their commitment to integrity, innovation, and technical excellence. Smart people all around me are pushing the state-of-the-art a little further each day, sometimes in steps and sometimes in leaps. This drive to work together and solve problems that matter is one of many reasons I’m still here today.
