History & Mission

Do big things—with less.

Asymmetrik is based on the premise that each person has the obligation to improve the world around them using their unique talents. By joining with like-minded people with complementary strengths, we’ve found that it takes only a small number of good people to enact change. And, that change can be extraordinarily greater than the sum of its parts.

History

In 2000, Amit Singh founded KANAK Consulting LLC, a one-man shop serving government clients within the Department of Defense, DARPA, NASA, and the White House. When Amit and Mike Frentz, a colleague he’d worked with on multiple successful projects, realized that they were both marching to the beat of a different drummer, they decided to form a different kind of company. They chose the name Asymmetrik, inspired by the concept of asymmetric contribution – the idea that small (but extremely talented) teams and unconventional approaches can bring about inordinate progress.

Coincidentally, Amit and Mike are both left-handed electrical engineers.  To achieve some sort of balance, in 2009 they brought on Veronique Pham to start an analytics division. And in 2011, Asymmetrik transitioned into a corporation, Asymmetrik Ltd., evolving into an employee-owned company that provides greater opportunity, security, and equity-sharing to grow and reward our world-class staff.

Mission

Our mission is to improve how our clients in government and healthcare do business. We work with our clients to rapidly iterate towards solutions that support a continually evolving mission – especially needed in today’s dynamic and unpredictable business environment. By combining software expertise with our analytics team’s insights, we’re able to gain unique perspectives into our customer’s problems. Asymmetrik has the process, equipment, methods, and most importantly, the culture and colleagues that the modern software environment demands.

We take care of our employees by providing competitive compensation that includes monetary as well as cultural, educational, and personal fulfillment.

We help employees secure their financial future through a well-managed retirement platform and benefits that allow employees to focus on what’s important in life – trying not to worry about the things that are not.

Respect

As employers go, Asymmetrik’s goal is to attract and retain the best and reward them appropriately.

We treat everyone (whether employees, candidates, customers, teammates, suppliers, or competitors) as respected individuals. We value them for their ideas and contributions and give them the opportunities to discover their potential. We help them grow as individuals and professionals without politics, bureaucracy, or fear of judgment.

We demand the best from ourselves and from those we work with.
