Being uncommon means believing in the power of business to make the world an incrementally better place through everyday business relationships and interactions. It means living out our values in the pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty—loving tough problems, pursuing excellence, celebrating the gifts of all team members, and especially…prioritizing people. If you join our team, our commitment to you is to find a role that accentuates your strengths and helps you exercise your own brand of uncommon genius to reach your career aspirations. We’ll expect you to work hard…and then provide opportunities to play hard. And we’ll invest in you, because—as a consultancy—our people are our brand and great companies invest in their brands.
What Does it Mean to be UNCOMN?
Our Communities Expand Your Career
UNCOMN’s Communities of Practice (COPs) are designed to empower team members to expand their skill sets in whatever areas they wish to grow, providing opportunities to develop professional skills, share information and expertise, incubate new ideas and innovations, and collaborate with experienced professionals. You choose your COP; we provide the framework and the collaborative environment in which to grow.
Each CoP offers five levels of career progression that opens up opportunities for new and more challenging work while guiding each team member to areas to grow their own knowledge, skills, and abilities to reach that next level.
Data Scientists analyze and understand client business problems, developing and providing insight into their businesses.
Business Architects apply their enterprise understanding to design integrated people, process, technology, and data solutions that solve enterprise business problems for our clients.
Our Commitment to You
At UNCOMN, we take pride in making sure our interview and hiring process is focused on you, the applicant. When you apply for a position at UNCOMN, we promise to:
Keep you updated: As you apply and move through the interview pipeline, you get constant feedback on the status of your application.
Focus on the long term: While the project work you’re applying for might only last for a few months or years, we don’t hire based upon project timelines. Once the project you’re working on is complete, we’ll find you another opportunity within the company that fits your skill set and career goals.
Read every word of your application: Your resume won’t ever get rejected by a robot. A real person reviews every single word of every single one of our applications.
Be open, honest, and transparent: We want every applicant to walk away from our interview process with an understanding of why they were offered a position or why they may not have been extended an offer. Even if UNCOMN wasn’t the right fit the first time, we believe that with the right feedback, someone could be the perfect fit for a different position down the road.
Team Member Testimonials
Jason Carter, Founder/President
“What we're looking for are people that love to solve problems. If you like to fix things, tweak things, solve problems, create things, even break things and put them back together, you're probably a good fit here. ”
Rebecca Kalhorn, Ph.D, Data Scientist
“At UNCOMN, being a consultancy with both a government and commercial side, there's opportunity for me to go in a lot of different directions professionally.”
Abby Wood, Data Scientist
“Coming out of college, what I was really looking for was the culture and the way that leadership talked about the company. Do they say they value work life balance, and actually do it? Is there a community? Is there a passion that people have for their work? I found all of that here at UNCOMN.”
Troy Templeman, Agile Solutions Practice Lead
“When I first retired from the military I had a lot of leadership experience and I had a ton of working knowledge on how to lead military members and how to lead troops but I didn't have as much of an IT background. UNCOMN gave me the ability to build up my IT skillset and so, when a manager position opened up, it was a natural transition for me to move into that role because of my past military experience and those new IT skills that I learned. ”
Andrea Blank, Talent Acquisition
“After being with UNCOMN for just two and a half weeks, I already felt like I was making an impact on the company.”
Jason Carter, Founder/President
“We work to foster a place where unique personalities of every shape, size, and color can find a home here. If you're an architect, an engineer, a hacker, a geek, of any sort, whatever that gift is, we want to accentuate that gift, build on that strength, and not squeeze your individuality out of you. ”
