Voted a Top Workplace 7 Years Running
iD Tech has been voted a Top Workplace for small companies by the Bay Area News Group (publisher of the San Jose Mercury News) for 7 consecutive years. We’ve scored in the Top 10 each year, (#1 in 2012 and #4 in 2013 out of 1,200 companies) which shows sustained dedication to being a dynamic place to work—that’s no small feat amid the giants of Silicon Valley. When we got started in 1999, we were a small family company that challenged conventional wisdom.
Jump ahead to 2016. We are the nation’s number #1 summer tech educator for kids and teens. We are living our dreams. Consequently, tens of thousands of students across the U.S. are realizing their dreams. They’re graduating from respected universities and launching fulfilling STEM careers. We're still an independent family company, challenging ourselves and our employees to keep getting better—and our students to aim even higher. But wait—it gets even better. All of our full-time employees are now owners of the company, deepening our commitment to being the best.

Here’s to another year full of innovation, entrepreneurship, experimentation, challenges, problem-solving, good health, laughter, and learning! Happy staff equal happy campers. We know that we couldn’t be the top workplace without the top workers. Thanks for all you do!
