    • Work with fellow Nava engineers to design, review, and build web services
    • Collaborate with the government and other contractors to invent, implement, and deploy new systems and improvements to existing systems
    • Architect new systems and changes to existing systems to support new functionality
    • Build functionality to ship new experiences and technologies
    • Maintain production systems and investigate issues when they occur
    • Create tools and processes to automate our development, testing, and production workflows
    • If located in SF or NYC, travel to DC is required

What we're looking for

    • Experience working on web-based systems
    • Meaningful experience working on large-scale applications and systems
    • A thoughtful, adaptive, and positive mindset
    • Able to think holistically around engineering issues
    • Knowledge of engineering fundamentals and architecture
    • Expertise in development and programming
    • Empathetic, humble, and collaborative mindset
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, technical and otherwise


Join our small team and help radically improve our government. Everyone that joins our team has a direct impact on the direction and success of Nava.

We are stewards – we hold a deep responsibility towards the systems that we work with. We are a community – we value collaboration both within our teams and with the many hardworking people within government. We offer generous compensation and equity packages and value a healthy work/life balance.

We care deeply about diversity and inclusion at Nava. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
