  • Collaborate closely with other teams to design feature specifications and develop high quality deliverables for our customers

What we offer you

  • An inclusive and collaborative company culture

  • Strong support for career growth, including mentorship programs, leadership training, access to conferences, and employee resource groups
  • Annual hackathon to build your own project and quarterly “Fix-It Fridays” to fix issues you care about

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

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?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
