Employee Perspectives


I enjoy attacking the technical challenges I face daily. It keeps things interesting.

Engineer of 15 years

The type and application of project varies. It's great being able to work on multiple projects throughout the year and to always be learning something new.

Engineer of 1 year

AVISTA is unique in that you can live 5 min from work in a small-town environment (low-cost, low crime, etc.) but work on high-tech, safety-critical systems.

Manager of 16 years

I've worked on a wide variety of interesting systems and each program is a new set of engaging challenges. Roles can also very from project to project from an independent developer to Product Owner/Scrum Master on a large-scale scrum-of-scrums team. This feels much different than other companies where it would typically require a job change and relocation to have these various opportunities.

Manager of 16 years

The Platteville office is located in fantastic school district allowing your kids to go from pre-school through college.

The Platteville community has affordable housing that when combined with engineering pay, allows people to purchase a home early in their lives.

Small company feel where you are a person and not just a number. Experienced people help you learn and develop skills each day.
