Current Career Opportunities

Our team members are a lot more to us than just a number or a utilization rate. We get to know you as an individual, with individual strengths, interests, and career goals. It’s the reason so many of our employees look forward to coming to work every day, and the reason the Washington Business Journal named us one of its Best Places to Work in 2016.

Topgrading: A high-performance Approach to recruiting

Eagle Hill follows the intensive Topgrading approach to hiring, a process that’s uniquely thorough and robust from start to finish. With Topgrading, only about 20 percent of the resumes we receive are selected for further review.

How Topgrading Works

  • As a candidate, you’ll undergo competency interviews and a chronological Topgrading interview where we ask about your entire career, including your successes, mistakes, key decisions, and key relationships
  • Finalists are asked to arrange personal reference calls with former managers

The benefits of Topgrading

  • Selective hiring helps us continue to be a community of high performers—even as we grow
  • Our high-performing team contributes to company growth, creating exceptionally good career opportunities
  • 90 percent of people who join the company are happy on the job a year later, and are rated high performers
  • The Topgrading approach includes continued post-hire support—you’ll receive comprehensive coaching to help you assimilate smoothly, perform well quickly, and begin formulating your Individual Development Plan
