“Octo was created with the idea that there are too many government contractors where folks are little more than a badge and we wanted to turn that aspect of normal government contractor on its head with our culture. We wanted to create an environment that was fun and unique but professional. An environment where employees work on impactful projects that have their fingerprints on it, where employees are able to take risks, be entrepreneurial, and are encouraged to swim on the deep end of the pool. And no jerks. Simple, but surprisingly novel.” – Mehul Sanghani, CEO
