SPA warmly welcomes former military service members! We value the character of individuals who have made and honored commitments to serve and protect our nation, and we appreciate the unique qualities that military leadership brings to bear on the challenges our clients face.

About SPA

SPA is a growing professional services firm that provides extensive and critical support to our Departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Energy clients. We cherish our customers’ trust and strive to make an impact on important decisions facing our nation today. We enjoy a small company culture that is making a large-company impact.

Strong Teams

We form our teams from a variety of experience and backgrounds so that we can provide the most reasonable and objective assessments for our customers.

A critical element on these teams is that our work must make operational sense, and we rely on the experience of our former service members to provide input on operational feasibility.

Former Junior Military Officers bring technical scholarship and leadership experience to our analysis teams as Military Operations Analysts, Systems Engineers, and more.

Retiring Military Officers have excelled at higher levels within the DoD organization, and can provide Military Operations Analysis expertise and may also bring acquisition, program management, or systems engineering experience and project leadership to our analysis teams. Check out our current openings here.

Doug Wisniewski, Program Analyst | Former Coast Guard

“After a long career in the Coast Guard, I knew that I wanted my second career to be with a company with equally strong core values. SPA has exceeded all of my expectations, with a focus on attracting and retaining the best and brightest minds. I enjoy my colleagues immensely and I respect them for their dedication to solving our clients’ toughest problems!”

Karen Kwok, Professional Systems Engineer | Former Navy Officer

“When I originally transitioned out of the Navy, I feared my Navy experience would not transfer over for application in the private sector until I found SPA. SPA not only accepted all my experience, but also embraced it, and put it to use immediately. I find it very rewarding to continue serving my country by contributing to solving challenges faced by our nation.”

Commitment to EEO and Affirmative Action

SPA is committed to the principles and practices of equal employment opportunity (EEO) and Affirmative Action. It is, and will continue to be, the policy of the company to afford equal employment opportunities to all qualified individuals. We recruit, hire, train and promote persons in all job titles without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, age, disability or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, SPA complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities.

Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision

As provided by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, SPA observes the following:
The contractor will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the contractor’s legal duty to furnish information.
