We’ve Captured Many Memories

A Workplace Reimagined


We are more than a leading technology company, and our people are more than their job. MetroStar’s essence is deeply rooted in our backgrounds as immigrants and first-generation Americans. Our origins mean we understand the importance of bringing together people’s unique skills, experiences, and most authentic selves to create a collaborative space. We hire diverse, forward-thinking individuals from all walks of life and are committed to building a more diverse, equal, and inclusive future together.

Behind every innovation, every award, and every back of the napkin idea is a team of truly exceptional people. Whether MetroStar employs 3 or 300, we’ve never lost sight of the fact that our people and culture are our lifelines. No matter where you land here, our culture is ingrained into every inch of our organization. Yes, we have fun stuff like happy hours, ping pong, foosball, and t-shirts. But, these are just perks. The core of our culture is a shared passion, vision, and courage to disrupt the IT landscape.

MetroStar’s future includes a brighter future for the Nation with a goal to lower our individual greenhouse gas emissions. Our different plans include reducing waste, buying green products, and using less energy. We hope that our efforts embolden us all to aspire for a world where sustainability is not merely an aspiration but a collective commitment embedded within the fabric of our existence.

Giving Back to Our Community

In order to power change in the technology industry, we must also empower those around us. Our Collaborative Action of Responsible Employees for Society (CARES) program focuses on giving back because it’s simply the right thing to do. Our three primary focus areas are:

Health + Humanitarian
We strive to build a better tomorrow through strategic investments and partnerships. Donating to non-profits that push for greater health and wellness in our communities is a top priority.

Education + Communities
We push to inspire the next generation of technologists, entrepreneurs, and artists. Working with universities and educational non-profits helps MetroStar ensure we share our skills and resources with those who want to grow.

Hometown Heroes
We continuously thank the everyday heroes and veteran communities for their sacrifices. We back missions that support our service members and essential workers.

CARES represents our commitment to giving back and maintaining the connection to the communities that have given us so much.

Empowering The Next Generation Through University Partnerships

Our passion for education has resulted in MetroStar maintaining six formal partnerships with universities across the nation, including three Historically Black College or Universities (HBCU’s): Howard, Virginia State, and Ft. Valley. These partnerships represent MetroStar’s commitment to ensuring we nurture and inspire the next generation of technologists to pursue careers supporting public-sector missions.
