Akima is a global enterprise with more than 7,500 employees, delivering agile solutions to the federal government in the core areas of facilities, maintenance, and repair; information technology; logistics; protective services; systems engineering; mission support; furniture, fixtures & equipment (FF&E); and construction. As a subsidiary of NANA, an Alaska Native Corporation owned by more than 14,000 Iñupiat shareholders, Akima’s core mission is to enable superior outcomes for our customers’ missions while simultaneously creating a long-lived asset for NANA consistent with our Iñupiat values. In 2020, Washington Technology ranked Akima #39 amongst the top 100 government contractors.
For 10,000 years, the people of the NANA region successfully fought for survival in one of the harshest environments on earth. When faced with the challenges that modernization, globalization, and changes in climate brought, they continued that success, forming enterprises - like Akima - that would help them thrive in the modern world.
The work they do through Akima allows them to prosper in both traditional Iñupiat subsistence living and in modern life, and to “walk in two worlds with one spirit.” The hard work and resilience that allowed NANA’s shareholders to flourish in the Arctic has also led to success in their modern enterprises.
With Akima, you’ll enjoy the agility and autonomy of working for a small business, while also being supported by an enterprise over 7,500 employees strong. Career growth and opportunity? Look no further.
