United States Digital Service is hiring for:

  • Engineer
  • UX Content Stategist

    Millions of people use federal government services everyday. Veterans apply for healthcare. Immigrants apply for naturalization. The elderly and needy apply for Medicare and Medicaid coverage. Too often, outdated tools and complex systems make these interactions cumbersome and frustrating. Even worse, public-facing content often suffers from a lack of user-focus, coordinated information architecture, and plain language accessibility.

    The United States Digital Service (USDS) is a bi-partisan tech group at the White House, employing a diverse group of technologists, working across the federal government to build better tools and services for the American people. Specifically, we are looking for UX content strategists, with some combination of the following skills:
    ·       Usability/user research experience, ideally leading usability studies to develop audience-focused content and drive the establishment of a user-focused information architecture
    ·       Synthesizing research and applying it to drive content generation and editorial strategy
    ·       The ability to incorporate plain language standards
    ·       Experience working with and potentially leading cross-functional teams
    ·       The ability to advocate for incorporating the user and UX in organizations where this is sometimes still a new concept


    If you’d like to bring your skills to work with a dynamic organization focusing on improving our nation’s most critical services, and guide content to improve and enhance a user’s journey in interacting with their government, we’d love to talk to you. Questions? Reach out to Joe Giordano.

“Optimize for results, not optics.
We don’t have shareholders except for everybody that pays taxes. We don’t make fancy presentations to the Board of Directors or whatever. We just need to show our results. If we’re showing results, that is the biggest optic that could possibly be. Let the results speak for themselves.”

We recommend reaching out to one or two speakers from the company directly via LinkedIn, Twitter, or email to strike up a conversation about the role, project or department you’re most interested in.

Remember, making a genuine human connection can help you stand out in a crowded talent market!
