Engineering Apprenticeship: Software Engineer
Nava  
cs frontend Oct 22
Nava partners with government agencies to deliver mission-critical software that helps public institutions earn people's trust. As a public benefit corporation, Nava is driven not just by profit, but also by our mission to build government software that well serves the American public. We ask the right questions to help civil servants and other contractors work effectively on complex systems in multi-stakeholder environments.

One of our Nava values is "Inclusion is Essential." We recognize that opportunities for software engineers are not always equal and we are committed to changing this.

The apprenticeship is a full-time, 4 month program beginning on January 11, 2021, aimed at diversifying our engineering team. Those who are currently underrepresented in tech and at Nava (Women, Black/African American, Latinx/Hispanic, those of South East Asian descent, Indigenous, Veterans, those working with disabilities, those re-entering the workforce, etc.) are especially encouraged to apply. Apprentices will be paired with a mentor, working on challenging and impactful projects like paid family medical leave or unemployment insurance portals. We will provide the support and environment that apprentices need to grow their careers in the civic tech space.

Due to the pandemic, our internships are remote this year (last year, we required that apprentices join us in our DC, SF or NYC locations so that they received the support and structure that can be obtained in an office setting). To adapt, apprentices will be required to have strong familiarity with remote working practices and be comfortable in proactive communication with their managers and mentors when work is not clear, when they are stuck, or when they have early examples of work to share with their support team.

Opportunities and Challenges
You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working, sometimes closely, with other government contractors and civil servants. Working with people outside of your company means you'll likely encounter different working styles and cultural norms. At the same time, working as part of a larger team allows us to deliver on projects of larger scale and complexity.

The government also imposes a level of bureaucracy that is typically not present in a company of our size in the private sector. We operate in a regulated environment, where checks and compliance is built into the process of building software. This can make the path to production slower and some decisions, such as tools and processes, lie outside of our control. However, beyond writing code, finding and recommending ways to improve the way government software is built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission.

You will be working with legacy systems. While our work is to build new systems with up-to-date technology, we have to do that within an existing ecosystem. Our work is building functional, resilient software for production. We don't build flashy prototypes that don't work for real people. This usually means getting to know legacy systems, often with poor documentation and unreliable narrators, and trying to determine how to replicate the systems' behavior or how to integrate with these systems. This is a great opportunity for engineers who enjoy software archaeology. If you care deeply about how software systems work over time, and building systems for longevity and resilience, this work is for you.

Who we’re looking for
You care deeply about building software that makes a real difference in people's lives, and is keen to grapple with the complexities and trade-offs involved in building government software. You have a solid engineering foundation and are eager to learn more.

You enjoy working on cross-functional teams, and collaborating with others, and you are able to direct yourself and work independently. You have empathy for the people who rely on your work, and you care about how your behavior affects others. You are humble and you value critical feedback and personal growth. You are comfortable receiving and giving kind, candid feedback.

Beyond coding ability, communication and teamwork skills are paramount. You must be able to communicate clearly and professionally in writing, in person, and through online tools, especially because we work with government stakeholders and other contractors.

You exhibit good judgment and are able to adapt to new situations well. You may encounter situations that no one on your team or at Nava has encountered before. You take responsibility and are able to persist through ambiguity to get to a solution.

Responsibilities
-Be comfortable sharing work before it's complete, to allow mentors can provide feedback and support early in the process
-An adaptive, empathetic, collaborative and positive mindset
-Ability to think holistically around engineering issues
-Knowledge of engineering fundamentals and architecture
-Excellent written and verbal communication skills, technical and otherwise
-Review code and give feedback on technical specs

Requirements
-Ability to work remotely, including strong, proactive communication skills. You must be able to ensure productivity, clear blockers, and share your work progress while working remotely.
-Recently graduated from a college or bootcamp program
-Experience with modern web development frameworks like Rails, Angular, React
-Experience working on web-based systems, both frontend and backend

Things not important
-Whether or not you have a CS or engineering degree (or any degree)
-Whether or not you have Github contributions. (It's great if you do, but we don't expect it.)
-Whether or not you have worked at a well-recognized company

Director of Infrastructure Engineering
Nava  
executive cloud Jun 25

Nava is working to improve government services for vulnerable populations. Some of our least visible but most impactful and far-reaching efforts involve modernizing and improving the foundational infrastructure that government agencies depend on to provide services. 
As we grow into larger, more sophisticated infrastructure projects that serve tens of millions of Americans, we're looking for an Infrastructure Director to round out our existing senior engineering leadership team.

Job Description
We're currently looking for a Director of Infrastructure to assure the foundations for federal and state government services are robust, dependable, and maintainable for decades to come.
You are a thoughtful and empathetic engineer motivated by providing usable solutions that help people. You're organized, collaborative, and care about both technology and the engineers you'll be leading. You have experience in coordinating across multiple teams with different tech stacks, architectures, and stakeholders.

You have a broad knowledge of what infrastructure tools exist and recognize that each project / problem has its own challenges and technical needs. You have the patience and problem-solving enthusiasm to refactor and integrate with legacy systems and services. Coaching your teams on how to think about a whole system and choose the most impactful improvement and automation will be a large part of your contribution.

Your leadership will help us better serve the people who use government services, the needs of the agencies we work with, and the changes we can make to have a large and lasting impact. Though there may be some opportunities to be hands-on and direct the specific approaches your teams use, your preference should be guiding your teams to make good choices (and follow through on implementing them)

You can work remotely, or work from one of Nava’s offices in DC, SF, or NYC.  Opportunities and Challenges Nava provides opportunities to do meaningful, impactful, mission-oriented work. As a public benefit corporation, we have a social mission written into our founding charter. The people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve access, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. We see this as an opportunity, but it is also important to highlight the challenges we face in advance.

You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working with government employees, other government contractors, and civil servants. Working with people outside of Nava means you'll likely encounter different working styles, cultural norms and be responsible for maintaining order and focus without authority. 

The government contracting ecosystem is a compliance-driven multi-stakeholder environment – particularly when compared to the operating environments for companies of our size in the private sector. Successful members of our team understand how to be innovative within this environment. Finding and recommending ways to improve the ways in which government digital services are procured and built is one of the highest-leverage ways we fulfill our mission.

What you'll do

  • You'll work closely with the VP of Engineering and other Directors to shape Nava's technical direction and vision as we grow into new sectors to improve services for additional populations.
  • You'll collaborate across functional departments (Engineering, Design, Delivery, and Product) to build scalable, consistent workflows and processes.
  • In concert with Program Management, you'll be an escalation point for misalignments between engineering, delivery, and product priorities and decisions.
  • You'll lead your team in implementing infrastructure best practices, assure they're exposed to new tools and technologies, and provide heuristics on how to assess the best tool for a given problem.
  • Much of your team comes from a background that doesn't include professional services or client management responsibilities. You'll build processes and best practices for how to engage effectively and professionally with clients and other stakeholders.
  • Coaching and teaching others is a critical aspect of this role. You'll directly manage our infrastructure engineering managers/tech leads, and will actively engage in promoting and supporting growth for infrastructure engineers at all levels.
  • Strategize and coordinate infrastructure staffing and hiring with our Program Management, Staffing, and Recruiting teams.
  • Manage a team of 3-7 managers across multiple projects (currently 3)
  • Develop and refine equitable practices and cultivate a diverse and effective team, helping them realize their potential and honoring each team member's unique experiences.
  • Seek support from champions within Nava or amongst clients, especially in the digital transformation space, where there is anticipated resistance to new practices or decisions.
  • Provide air-cover for direct reports on any contract (e.g. scrubbing in to help get a project on track or providing direct support if your team encounters a complex stakeholder management situation)

What we're looking for

  • Interest in improving government services.
  • Broad background in infrastructure and an interest in using the best tools to solve a given problem.
  • Experience successfully leading multiple projects across multiple teams, and growing individual members of those teams in an equitable manner.
  • Ability to graciously accept, and give, feedback to both reports and executive management.
  • Strong communication skills - able to 'meet people where they are' and successfully coordinate and communicate to other engineers, product managers, delivery managers, design leads, and program managers.
  • Ability and interest in teaching teams how to solve problems, as opposed to dictating solutions (but able to dictate solutions if the team needs that support)
  • Experience cultivating strong relationships with external clients, stakeholders, customers or partners.
  • Experience with fast-growing companies, with a bonus for experience within government contracting or professional service firms.

Other Requirements:

  • Experience:  10+ years of experience in Infrastructure, including experience with Cloud Infrastructure, CI/CD, Operations, Infrastructure Automation.5+ years of direct people management experience and team leadership.
You will have a direct impact on the technical 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 benefits and equity.
