The last few years we’ve evolved into a largely remote workforce.  It is a change that has happened organically over time.   It started out with a few employees who wanted to leave DC, but didn’t want to leave their jobs.   We then had a few others who had kids and wanted to work from home most days as a result.   When hiring, we’ve found that being flexible about location allows us to search beyond DC and attract a higher quality of candidate. 

Telecommuting works for us, and it has become part of our culture.  Currently only around half of our twenty employees work from our main office on a day to day basis.

The transition to Brick Factory necessitated that we move into new office space.  After years in the Glover Park area of DC, we decided to rent an office in the more easily accessible downtown area (on Connecticut and M).  The new office will serve as a central gathering point for our dispersed team.  The build out for our new office was finished last week, and we beginning moving in this week.  Here are a few photos of the space, prior to us moving all our stuff in.
