RICHMOND, VA – Governor Glenn Youngkin today announced that Dev Technology Group, an information technology services company delivering mission-critical applications and systems to the federal government, will invest $366,000 to expand in Fairfax County. Due to a substantial increase in demand for its services, the company is investing in 10,000 square feet of new office space to accommodate additional IT and software personnel. The project will create 90 new jobs.
“Dev Technology Group is a Virginia success story that bolsters our booming IT industry while providing critical services for the government and 21st-century jobs for civilians and veterans,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “We are proud to see a longstanding corporate partner benefit from the Commonwealth’s diverse, world-class technology talent that catalyzes growth.”
“When an award-winning technology firm reinvests in the Commonwealth, it sends a clear message that Virginia is a premier location for this competitive industry,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick. “Dev Technology Group’s decision to increase its footprint in Fairfax County is a win for the region and the Commonwealth, and we are pleased that the Virginia Jobs Investment Program can support the company’s employee recruitment and training.”
“As a federal contractor, Dev Technology has selected to continue its growth in Fairfax County due to the proximity of clients and access to highly skilled employees, including veterans,” said Kendall Holbrook, CEO of Dev Technology. “In addition, Northern Virginia is a diverse and inclusive community that allows us to attract and retain people of all backgrounds, which ultimately makes our company stronger and more resilient.”
“Thank you to Dev Technology for choosing to continue to grow right here in Fairfax County,” said Jeffrey C. McKay, Chairman of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. “I’m proud of all the work we have done as a community to keep Fairfax County the kind of diverse and vibrant community that fosters this kind of economic growth.”

This is exactly the kind of federal contracting business we’re proud to have in our country—one that not only adds significant value to our area, but also employs veterans and leverages our competitive advantage—highly skilled IT talent. I wish Dev Technology much success,” said Senator Janet Howell.
