Why Should You Join Qore Performance?
Our only mandate is greatness.
Now is the time to find a job you’ll love, doing work that is both fulfilling and important. With our economy restarting, restrictions gone (mostly), and unemployment enhancements ending, the fight to restore freedom and liberty is on the rise. The rush is on to grab the best jobs.
In the inevitable politics of large companies re-establishing hierarchies, will the skills, knowledge, and superior work ethic you’ve developed matter? Will you be just an employee number, subject to layoffs from any disruption like COVID? Will you have a voice, or just a job. Will you make a difference, or just a paycheck?
Qore Performance is a small, close-knit, high-output and fast growing company with a vital mission and a great team working hard to fulfill it. Your work at Qore Performance will have an immediate and positive impact on tens of thousands of people all over the world. We offer a growing family of products using simple but novel technologies to increase work capacity and safety of first responders, improve the focus and endurance of technicians operating in protective clothing, offer a decisive advantage to military personnel and offer comfort and hydration to anyone working in challenging environments. In just a few short years, our commercial customers have worked nearly 4,000,000 hours without a single minute lost to a heat injury, preventing hundreds of hospitalizations while saving millions of dollars in health care costs and lost productivity. Our work helps individuals and GDP at the same time, on multiple levels.
As an "Essential Critical Infrastructure" company offering products that are vital to incident response, we were not shut down during the COVID crisis. We attacked opportunity, grew rapidly, and thrived. Our "freedom first" idea meritocracy uniquely positioned our team to quickly seize numerous opportunities as they arose through all of 2020.
Now we’re looking for more patriotic Americans to join us in Building A Superhuman Future. Help us meet the dramatically increasing demand for our products as we liberate people from the constraints of their environment and help them become the greatest version of themselves.
If this sounds as exciting to you as it is to us, we want to hear from you!

Our hiring process
We use a five-step interview process to evaluate candidates and give candidates an opportunity to evaluate us. Our goal is to set all of our team members up for success from the first moment they make contact with us, but our hiring process is stringent and extremely thorough. It is not easy. You will have a chance to ask any questions you want at the end of each interview step. Here are the steps:
- Preliminary Questions - if you meet the minimum requirements, we'll send these questions to you via email within one week of receipt of your application. Questions are short and usually directed at specific points where we are looking for clarification. Responses here determine if a candidate is invited to a Screening.
- Screening Interview - this interview is roughly 10-15 minutes and is conducted over the phone. It is an opportunity for us to get to know the basics about each candidate. If you pass the Screening interview, you will advance to the next round.
- Personal Interview - this is an in-person interview at our office in Sterling, VA. It is a chance for us to get to know you at a deeper level.
- Skills Assessment - for technical positions, this interview is used to assess your actual skillset using a practical exercise. The work done during this exercise is a simulation and is never used commercially or made live to an audience, but it does deal with real elements from our company for proper and complete context.
- Reference Interview - just like it sounds, this interview is all about your work history and references. The Reference Interview includes a detailed background check that includes credit history. It is done in person for local candidates and via VTC for out of area candidates.
Getting an offer from us is difficult and only the absolute best candidates will advance through all five stages. If you get an offer from us, you are an exceptional talent (and we don't mean GPA - we couldn't care less what your GPA was), so congratulations!
