OUR CULTURE

At Nytec we pride ourselves on creating a healthy work environment for both our employees and our planet. Not only do our offices encourage positivity and comfort through such things as our Garden of You and our Art Rotation Program, but we also go to great lengths to ensure that our footprint on the planet is as small as possible. In fact, our headquarters in Kirkland, WA is one of relatively few buildings in the world expected to receive the prestigious LEED Platinum ranking, which is the highest possible ranking given by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design committee. At Nytec we strive to create an environment that inspires creativity and innovation while also being conscious of the world around us.
