Office culture and PSPups

"We bought our building for the dogs," admits Ken. And when you walk into our Bellevue office, you will likely be greeted by a few of them. We take our work very seriously, but we also know the value of doing it in a comfortable environment.

We pride ourselves on hard work, mutual respect for one another and making time for a little fun. We are also proud to be one of the largest and fastest-growing minority-owned businesses in the region, having earned the title of U.W. William D. Bradford Minority Business of the Year in 2014.
