  • You want to help make our development practices better and reduce friction from idea to deployment
  • You are comfortable working as a senior member of a team, helping establish team standards, mentoring those junior to you, and discussing the pros and cons of tools and technical approaches with all team members
  • You are able to evaluate new technologies and clearly communicate the benefits and risks of adoption
  • You are resourceful, intellectually curious, and self-motivated to learn new things and stay abreast of top technology trends

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
