One of the many things I love about QIP is the teamwork. I feel lucky to be a part of a team that works hard and takes pride in their work.

QIP has three main team groupings within our larger team of employees: 

  • The Communications & Content team uses their expertise in writing, editing, graphic design, videography, and Section 508 compliance to create and manage publications, websites, and digital media.

  • The Data Management & Standards team uses their data, statistical, writing, and research expertise to improve data systems and standards, particularly in the field of education.

  • The Cloud Applications team uses their information technology (IT) expertise to work on virtual private cloud management, web application support, and cybersecurity.


We're a team of individuals,

not a corporate hierarchy.

At QIP, we conduct business with a spirit of teamwork. Instead of having a top-down management style, our philosophy is to encourage staff to show independence and shine in their diversity, all while collaborating with colleagues.

The entire QIP team worked together to identify and craft our core values. Our employee-developed core values, as a result, authentically represent who we are. We jointly decided that we believe in  committing to quality and integrity, nurturing relationships, promoting compassion and growth, balancing work with self-care, and celebrating successes. 

I feel empowered knowing that our managers trust each of us to carry out our responsibilities, build relationships outside our team, explore innovative approaches, and represent the best of QIP every day.

Live and work anywhere

from your virtual office.

QIP's office is virtual and offers a flexible physical work environment. We conduct business through email, phone, conference calling, web meetings, and chats. Most employees work remotely from their home offices, some in the D.C. metro area and some in states far away. 

We seek to hire candidates who are the best fit for QIP, no matter where they live.

Further, one of our core values is to balance work with self-care. Having a remote office allows team members an uncommon amount of flexibility in time management.

Working remotely offers me a better work-life balance, reduced stress, and as a result, a healthier lifestyle.

Build relationships

at company retreats.

Having a virtual office is great, but we also recognize the value of in-person interactions. On a regular basis, the QIP team gathers for two or three days of learning, collaboration, socializing, and lots of fun. Previous retreats have been held in Washington, D.C.; Baltimore, Maryland; and Alexandria, Virginia. Retreats offer the opportunity to enhance our knowledge and skills, exchange ideas, and grow relationships with coworkers. 

  At retreats, we engage in not just formal presentations (pictured) but also creative group activities.

The QIP team periodically meets in person not only during retreats, but also while attending national conferences, most of which take place in or near Washington, D.C. 

Attending conferences helps us serve our clients. Conferences also give us another chance to spend time with colleagues in person.

And of course, it's always fun to visit our nation's capital, where one's never short on entertaining and educational sights to see and things to do.

There is always something to learn from an experience with a client, and senior managers are great at helping us learn how to engage clients and grow as a staff person.

Let's not forget the

perks and benefits.

QIP employees receive competitive benefits, including a generous healthcare package and paid holidays, vacation days, and sick leave. After three years, employees can participate in the QIP retirement plan.

One of our core values is the promotion of professional growth. Employees are reimbursed to take courses that develop their professional skills.

One of our most popular traditions involves charitable giving. During the holiday season, each employee chooses a charity, and QIP makes a donation to each of them. 

QIP’s charitable giving makes me grateful for my own privileges and reminds me that acts of kindness can go a long way for those in need.
