Staff Software Engineer Front End (remote)

Ad Hoc Team - Bridgeport, CT

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

This is a Staff (Team Lead) Front End Engineer position. You be part of a cross-functional team, working closely with 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.

Our ideal Front End Engineer knows how to write performant, maintainable HTML, CSS, and Javascript and is able to navigate ambiguity and solve complex problems. They write accessible, maintainable frontend code and know their way around frameworks like React, Angular, or Vue.js. As an Ad Hoc Front End Engineer, you'll be:

  • 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 minimum of five years of experience with open source front-end languages and frameworks such as Javascript, React, Angular, Vue.js, and Typescript.
  • A deep understanding of the fundamental technologies of the front-end: HTML, CSS, that sort of thing.
  • Experience integrating API endpoints that support our digital services as well as third-party services.
  • A solid understanding of accessibility requirements, especially Section 508 and WCAG.
  • Solid spelling, grammar, and communication skills.
  • A commitment to agility, flexibility, and iteration.
  • Experience and understanding of at least one agile methodology, such as Scrum, XP, or SAFe.

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.
