Working at Akilah
Since opening our doors in 2010, our team has cultivated an environment of innovation, hard work, and creativity. And in the last few years, we’ve made it a priority to truly celebrate our successes, no matter how little or big.
From celebrating our accomplishments during our annual retreat in Rwanda to enjoying cold-brewed coffee on tap at WeWork’s co-working space in Washington, D.C., we make time to both connect and reflect on our wins and lessons learned. We’ve discovered that building a positive team culture is essential to achieving our strategic goals.
That communal mentality has resulted in a fast-paced, exciting work environment that presents innovative and challenging opportunities for professional development.
