Arlington Magazine has named Maxar to its 2022 Best Places to Work list. This marks the second year in a row that Maxar has earned the recognition, which honors the ten best places to work in Arlington, McLean and Falls Church, Virginia.

Honorees are selected based on a two-part process, including an evaluation of each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices and demographics, as well as an employee survey measuring the employee experience.
