Recent Growth: Booz Allen Hamilton

San Antonio represents the largest share of Booz Allen Hamilton’s Texas workforce and this week announced plans to further invest in its San Antonio cybersecurity team. The company plans to add 250 new high-wage, highly technical jobs in the urban core over the next five years, adding to its current local workforce of over 500 in San Antonio.

“Booz Allen has a strong presence in San Antonio through both our exceptional workforce and our deep involvement in the local community,” said Bob Miller, vice president at Booz Allen and head of the firm’s San Antonio office. “San Antonio provides a diverse, highly skilled talent pool that we look forward to further drawing on as we support our clients with mission-critical work in cybersecurity, intelligence, engineering, analytics and more.”

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Booz Allen is a global technology and management consulting firm that serves public- and private-sector clients across a range of industries.

The firm has been active in the San Antonio community for over 20 years, creating job opportunities in cyber, artificial intelligence, immersive technologies, engineering and software development, and has many active local workforce development programs such as its Summer Games internship, Hiring Our Heroes Corporate Fellowship Program, Texas A&M Externship Program, and its sponsorship ofCyberPatriot, a national youth cyber education program created by the Air Force Association (AFA).

“This represents the tenth cybersecurity company to invest in expanding or relocating in San Antonio in recent years, further solidifying San Antonio’s position as a top tier cybersecurity market and second only in density to the Washington D.C. metro area,” said Danny Chavez, Vice President, Business Development for the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation.

The divisional expansion of this company will include positions in cybersecurity, data analytics, software engineering, digital solutions and consulting, pending local incentive approvals from the City of San Antonio and Bexar County.
