Do you believe in doing work that matters? At AdHoc, it’s one of our core values. We choose to work on things that make a difference

Ad Hoc is a digital services company that helps the federal government better serve people. Our teams use modern, agile methods to meet the needs of our users while closing the gap between consumer expectations and government. We’re looking for people with an entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to make things happen even in a changing, ambiguous environment. If you care about improving how the government serves people, then we want you here with us.   

Work on things that matter
Working at Ad Hoc means putting your time and skills towards helping the government better serve the public. Our teams connect Veterans with services designed for their needs, help millions of people access affordable health care, and support critical programs like Head Start. As we work with agencies to deliver critical services, we’re also changing how the government thinks about and uses technology. 

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 team since our inception. Being remote by design allows Ad Hoc to bring the best people onto our teams and gives team members the freedom to create 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 home decor), our work culture acknowledges all the things happening in your life. Tilt the videocam so we can see your pets and kids. Adjust your work schedule to care for your family or take a bike ride. At Ad Hoc, you’ve got the freedom to bring great ideas to life while being you.

Team values
Ad Hoc values acceptance, accountability, and humility. We aren’t heroes. We leave our egos at the door to learn from our mistakes and improve the process for the next time. We’re a team that loves the challenge of government-size projects and loves to see our customers succeed. We build small, diverse, inclusive teams to bring the best of consumer technology to the problems of government.

Ad Hoc is looking for a self-driven Senior Back End Engineer. Who enjoys addressing ambiguity and solving complex problems without technical assistance or supervision. The ideal candidate will have expert-level capabilities in at least one major technology stack. They will have designed and implemented well-structured, reliable, maintainable APIs in a complex problem domain. They will have built services that integrate with external dependencies and data sources. They are aware of and can describe how the thing they built fits into a larger ecosystem. 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.
