Systems Engineering (SE) is 100% employee-owned. What does that mean? Our company is an Employee Stock Ownership Program or ESOP. ESOPs are companies where some or all of the ownership has transferred to the employees primarily in the form of non-voting company stock. At SE, we are 100% employee-owned.
At SE, doing business with us means that every representative you talk to is either an owner or on a path to becoming an owner.

Information Technology is an ever-growing and ever-changing industry, and it’s one of the reasons technical recruiting is uniquely challenging. As a result, recruitment methods are also changing as we find better ways to source, connect, and hire the best talent on the market.
We are proud to announce that Systems Engineering (SE) was chosen to receive the 2016 Governor's Award for Business Excellence. This year, three Maine companies were honored at the 26th annual awards ceremony at an afternoon reception at the Blaine House on Tuesday, December 20th. SE is among a small group of employee-owned companies to receive this prestigious honor since its inception in 1991.
Systems Engineering's President, Craig Tribuno, said it best in his blog titled, Staying True To Our Culture and Mission, when he wrote, "While many firms encourage their staff to 'think like an owner,' we live that advice every day. Every member of our team is either a current owner, or on a path toward ownership in the immediate future. This drives a level of accountability that’s difficult to reproduce."
This summer, Systems Engineering (SE) is undergoing its first official internship program opened to graduates, or soon-to-be graduates of Southern Maine Community College (SMCC), with technology-focused degrees. These technical candidates chose to join SE to get a flavor of what it’s like to work in a technical environment as well as for professional growth and development.
