Founded in 1999, VaST is incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our headquarters are located in Warrenton, Virginia; however, our employees provide support to our customers throughout the U.S. and around the globe. VaST’s founding members established the organization to fulfill a growing need for precision technological advancement while providing an engaging work environment.
We support a unique set of customers through software engineering, software design, information operations, analysis, and reporting, data collection and parsing, and tailored data collection specific to the needs of the customer.
VaST is 100% employee owned through our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), which strengthens our technical and performance posture by aligning company goals with employee interests. As a result, both the employee-owners and the company benefit from increased company performance, teamwork, and an overall positive environment
Leadership recognizes that we, and our contemporaries, are subject to a unique opportunity to be a part of an era that yields significant societal advancements though the innovation of technology. As we enter into the era of technology, the team at VaST has taken the initiative to be a part of the movement that will have a positive impact, enhance our capabilities, and ultimately shape our future.

At VaST, we uphold a culture that fosters an environment of high technical proficiency, a high tempo workforce, and camaraderie. We’ve earned an elite status within our community by valuing our employees and our clients ahead of all else. Through this, we are able to provide impactful daily support while solving the industry's most difficult technical problems.
VaST practices a deliberate slow-growth model that allows us to build teams of personnel that are passionate about their work and will continue our reputation of excellence within the industry. This is one aspect of our culture that drives our ability to provide top-tier support while maintaining an engaging and welcoming work environment for our employees.
VaST is 100% employee-owned.
We believe our employees should share in the success of our company in a tangible way, which is why we created an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2013. Our ESOP program means every employee of VaST is part owner and benefits financially from a job well done. In this way, there is a direct incentive for all employees to work diligently and take pride in their work as well as the company’s performance. Our employees enjoy industry competitive wages and the long-term investment derived from company ownership. At VaST, being an employee-owner means having a stable present while building your future.
