Job Description:

This is a fully remote position. Work on things that matter Ad Hoc is a digital services company that helps the federal government better serve people. Our teams use modern, agile methods to design and engineer government systems that connect Veterans with services, bring affordable health care to millions of people, and support important programs like Head Start. And as we work to make critical government services intuitive, accessible, and human-centered, we're also changing how the government thinks about and uses technology. If you thrive on change, want to help close the gap between consumer expectations and government services, and can see the possibilities in ambiguity, then we want you here with us. What matters most Ad Hoc operates according to our commitment to inclusivity, acceptance, accountability, and humility. We aren't heroes.

We want to bring skills to federal agencies, help them better meet the needs of their users, and close the gap between consumer expectations and government.
