Senior Software Engineer Full Stack w/ Back End

Ad Hoc Team - Trenton, NJ

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 birding 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.

The Federal Civilian business unit supports a wide range of customers that span the federal, commercial, and non-profit space. Our customers include the General Services Administration, Office of Personnel Management, PAN Foundation, Library of Congress, Social Security Administration, Health and Human Services and the USDA US Forest Service. We partner with these agencies to build new capabilities, deliver products, establish data as a strategic asset for informed decision-making, modernize legacy systems, and build the digital service infrastructure necessary to scale their mission impact by applying approaches proven in consumer technology.

What you'll do

As an Ad Hoc Senior Software Engineer Full Stack Engineer, you'll 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.

A Senior Software Engineer is capable of addressing ambiguity and solving complex problems without technical assistance or supervision (though this will generally be available). They have expert-level capabilities in at least one major technology stack. They mentor and guide more junior engineers through the development process, including debugging and new skills acquisition. They communicate with stakeholders, other teams, and partners to generate, assess, and execute on product development or integration requirements. Their experience in the field can be used to effectively evaluate and communicate tradeoffs between implementation complexity and other technical and non-technical costs.

Our ideal Senior Full Stack 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. They know how to build large-scale production systems in modern agile environments. They write well-structured, tested, and secure code with little feedback or guidance. They've designed and implemented reliable and maintainable APIs and built services that integrate with external dependencies. They can articulate how the thing they've built fits into a larger ecosystem. They're not afraid of large, complex problems. They take an active role in planning and delivery efforts, drawing on their experience to suggest better approaches or alternatives.

  • 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 eight (8) years of professional software development
  • Expert API development
  • Experience administrating systems based on various platforms including SaaS and PaaS
  • Expert experience with JavaScript, Nodejs, and React
  • Experience with testing frameworks such as Mocha or Jasmine
  • Experience with .NET development
  • MSSQL and PostgreSQL a plus
  • Experience with InRule a plus
  • 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!
