How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Aquilon tailors its work-life balance with the individual in mind. As a software engineer, I’m crazy for coding; we get to tackle fun and challenging problems. But I’m also a family man. And my family is what it’s all about. Aquilon understands that not all challenges are the same and gives me the tools to help create an optimized work-life style.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Our team is built upon the “best idea wins” mentality. No matter if you are just out of school or a seasoned 30 year veteran, a good idea can come from anyone. We encourage ideas to come at any time, from anywhere – and when one hits we strike quickly to collaborate, refine and transform that idea into action.

Jeff

VP of Application Development

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office is always light and cheery, even during “crunch” times. Everyone’s approachable and always willing to collaborate. With a collection of experts from different fields and different experiences, there’s always something new to learn. From collaborative meetings to fun company events, everyone exudes both a professional and familial vibe.
