  • Create and run processes for operating software, both manual and automated ones
  • Facilitate grounded security conversations and recommend usable paradigms, tools, and processes to keep users and clients safe
  • Coordinate responses to short or longer running incidents or systemic failures
  • Gracefully and reliably handoff work to clients and other team members to continue
  • Roll-up your sleeves to make services better, even though sometimes that doesn't involve focusing on technology

What we're looking for:

  • Experience writing, shipping, and operating code and technical infrastructure
  • Ability to understand complex systems, whether that's people processes or software integrations
  • An outcome and user-centered orientation to solving challenges and improving systems
  • Team players that co-creates and brings along team members, partners, and clients that may have different backgrounds and expertise
  • Strong technical foundation that allows flexibility on tech stack and learning new things
  • Willingness to step into different roles in order to get the job done and initiative to deliver iteratively (code or otherwise)
  • Integration of Bloom's values into work methods
  • An understanding of (even if not an expert in all): frontend development, backend development, software integration (i.e. APIs), computer networking and infrastructure, Linux, computer hardware basics (i.e. RAM, disk, processors, threading, etc.), version control, English language (written and spoken) and plain language writing

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at
