Careers @ AIS


AIS provides the opportunity to be a part of a small, growing company. Yes we are small, but not too small. We have 2 offices and about 50 employees and we have had consistent steady growth each year. Apprentice is an employee owned company, and we focus on promoting from within when at all possible and investing in employee training and development. This creates opportunities for sharp hardworking professionals to come in on the ground floor and build their carreers with us. AIS is a forward-looking company focused on implementing best practices and best-in-class techniques and technologies, and we aren’t the low cost option in our industry. We charge a premium price and deliver a premium product, which means you will learn IT as it should be – done right.



Apprentice delivers comprehensive IT solutions to the public sector (think local government) by providing well engineered and highly useful products & services, listening to our clients, customizing technology solutions to fit each client like a glove, and supporting them with their IT problems, and thus improving the daily work-life of our clients and enabling our governments to run more smoothly. So get that last part: at Apprentice you actually help make a better world by improving how government operates. Pretty cool, huh?



It’s fun! We have a positive and casual culture in which each team member can make a real impact. We believe in working in a way that glorifies God, honors our families, and makes the client the boss. We operate more like a family than a corporation. Each Monday, we share a hot meal together in our office, and we have breakfast (and a team pow-wow) on Fridays. We place a high value on collaboration, so a lot of your work will be team-based. And we love our clients! Most of our client contracts are very long-term, so we get to know them like family too. This makes the work we do very rewarding.



It’s not all about the money for you, and neither is it with us. But, yes, AIS offers competitive compensation, and most positions include a pay increase after an initial 90-day review, and then annual increases each January. We get a Christmas bonus each year too – enough for some fun presents for the kid in your family (maybe yourself?).

Apprentice provides an excellent benefits package to all of our full-time employees. We want you to be heathy, so this includes fully paid Major Medical. Yep, we pay 100% of your monthly medical insurance (Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Arkansas).

We also offer fully paid life insurance, as well as optional Supplemental Life, Dental, Vision, Short and Long-Term Disability and more. AIS has a Retirement plan with 100% matching contributions up to 3%.

We agree – you work hard - so you need time to play hard. So we offer 7 paid holidays, 2 personal days, 10 vacation days, and 5 sick days. That’s 25 days of paid time off per calendar year, and the vacation time expands with tenure. Oh, and just to be sure you are in shape to go play hard, we provide $20 per month for a gym membership.



This is a position for more advanced Application Developers who are ready to take the next step. If you already have a few years of post-college work experience and are ready for some more challenging tasks, we have the perfect environment for you. Be a part of a ‘Scrum’ team where you get to both learn and teach, share ideas and create new and better code, and see your applications make it i
