Outsiders may consider Crystal City-based ByteCubed just another government contracting office, but take a closer look – and they’ll see it’s quite the opposite. Yes, company employees spend their day working for government clients building big data platforms, but the culture of ByteCubed is very different. Think bright, open offices. Collaboration. This is the new government contracting, and founder Ahmad Ishaq says it’s exactly what he aspired to become.
“My goal is the opportunity to reimagine government contracting,” he explains. “To modernize it and create a new approach to an existing industry.”
And Bytecubed is now bringing that unique perspective to Arlington’s Crystal City neighborhood. The company held a ribbon cutting last week on its brand new 17,000 square foot headquarters in the heart of Crystal City. Approximately 150 employees will work out of the space, all of whom were in attendance for the grand opening celebration.
During the remarks, Arlington County Board Chair Libby Garvey presented Bytecubed with a Key to the County, explaining that as ByteCubed grows, “the company will be able to take advantage of Arlington’s highly-skilled workforce and partnership opportunities with other tech companies who’ve made the wise decision to become a part of our community.” Bytecubed has already been named one of Arlington Economic Development’s Fastest-Growing Businesses and was honored by Virginia Business magazine as a Best Place to Work.
