Senior Software Engineer Front End - Accessibility

Ad Hoc Team - Allentown, PA

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 believe in missions larger than our individual selves and leave our egos at the door, learn from our mistakes, and iterate in order to better serve the people in our country. We prioritize building teams that represent the diversity of the people our government serves. We love the challenge of government-size projects. 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.

Built for a remote life

Ad Hoc is remote-first and remote-always. We've designed our culture, communications, and tools to support a nationwide distributed team since the beginning. Being remote by design allows Ad Hoc to be thoughtful and intentional about creating diverse teams and supporting them with a work environment that fits their lives. With a generous PTO policy and Slack channels for every interest (from bird watching to space nerds to parenting) our culture embraces the things happening in your life. Maybe you need to adjust your schedule to care for your family or take a bike ride. At Ad Hoc, that's embraced.

What you'll do

As an Ad Hoc Front End Engineer focused on accessibility, you'll be part of a cross-functional team, working closely with Veterans Affairs (VA) stakeholders, product managers, designers, and other engineers. We're looking for an engineer to help our teams deliver the very best digital services for the public.

As an Ad Hoc Front End Engineer with an accessibility focus, you'll be:

  • Advising other engineers, designers, and product folks at the VA on accessibility best practices
  • Providing alternative solutions or recommendations for code that does not meet required accessibility success criteria
  • Running accessibility scans and manual screen reader testing
  • Shipping software that impacts the lives of millions of people.
  • Using modern programming languages and frameworks to build scalable services that gracefully integrate with legacy systems.
  • Working with our own APIs and third-party APIs to build amazing, effective digital services.
  • Using unit and integration testing to ensure systems work as intended.
  • Helping us continuously, iteratively improve.

What we hope you'll bring

  • A passion for creating and advocating for inclusive experiences.
  • A minimum of 5 years experience in the field, with 3-5 years in the digital accessibility space.
  • Experience in web accessibility testing using several common screen reader and browser combinations.
  • Experience with mobile screen readers using gestures, etc.
  • Solid knowledge of WAI-ARIA, WCAG 2.x success criteria, ADA Section 508, and ideally an understanding of the difference between legal compliance vs. accessibility beyond compliance.
  • A deep understanding of the fundamental technologies of the front-end: semantic HTML, CSS, that sort of thing.
  • Experience using automated testing tools.
  • The ability to communicate complex accessibility issues in plain language to designers, developers, and product managers.
  • A commitment to agility, flexibility, and iteration.
  • Experience with open source front-end languages and frameworks such as Javascript, React, Angular, Vue.js, and Typescript, Java, Ruby and Go.
  • Experience and understanding of at least one agile methodology, such as Scrum, XP, or SAFe.
  • Experience collaborating with design systems teams.
  • Any certifications (for example, IAAP WAS or CPACC) are nice to have, but not required. And if you've ever written a VPAT, we definitely want to hear from you.

More than that, our ideal candidate wants to contribute to work that is bigger than themselves and wants to make a difference collaborating with their team. They care deeply about building better products, better relationships, and better trust in each interaction people have with their government. They believe in intuitive, easy-to-use government services. They collaborate well with designers, stakeholders, and other teams. They mentor and guide more junior engineers. They're human-centered.

And if you don't check every box on the list? That doesn't mean you can't help us in our mission to deliver critical government services. Talk to us!

Some basic requirements

  • All work must be conducted within the U.S., excluding U.S. territories. Some federal contracts require U.S. citizenship to be eligible for employment.
  • You must be legally authorized to work in the U.S now and in the future without sponsorship.
  • As a government contractor, you may be required to obtain a public trust security clearance.
  • Some of our available roles are on federal contracts that require a degree or additional years of experience as a substitute.
  • Our technical screening involves completing a homework assignment that is then graded blind to remove bias. We do not do tricky, unreliable whiteboarding tests. You can read more about our homework here.
