affinis culture

Affinis was designed to be a different kind of engineering firm. Our founders wanted co-workers to build long-lasting relationships both in and outside of our company. The result, nearly two decades later, is a collaborative environment that thrives on teamwork across disciplines.

As a firm, we value balance, collaboration, excellence, servant leadership, and trustworthiness. More than signage on our walls, these ideals have been threaded through our culture. For years, we’ve supported flexible hours and work arrangements, encouraged community involvement, and supported professional development, making Affinis a “Best Firm to Work For” for many years.

to constantly improve ourselves. The culture really encourages personal growth and sharing
new skills/information. This allows coworkers to find our jobs rewarding, while providing clients
with better and better deliverables.
