Software Engineer Backend at Nava

About Nava Nava is a public benefit corporation, which means 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. As a professional services firm, we achieve our mission by partnering with government clients at the state and federal levels. We bill for our time, selling our expertise and problem-solving methodology to government clients who hire us to help improve their products and services so that their users and beneficiaries have a better experience. These end-users — the humans who benefit from our work — are at the core of everything we do. They inspire and motivate us. Working with our government clients to align their goals with their beneficiary's needs enables them to better deliver on their mission and provides everyone at Nava opportunities to do meaningful, impactful work. Nava is at the forefront of reimagining how our government serves its people, and we're looking for experienced researchers to help drive this mission forward. You will work on a cross-functional team to build scalable digital services for our government - designing, implementing, and delivering software that is depended on by millions of Americans. You care deeply about working on technology that affects people's lives, and are passionate about building large-scale systems that are well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure. Below are some of the traits of candidates who will likely be successful in this role. If you're excited about this opportunity but don't think you meet all of the requirements, apply anyway! What You'll Do We're looking for talented engineers to solve technical challenges across the stack, including those who lean more towards front-end or back-end development. Working together, our engineering team presents end-to-end solutions that will be used by millions of Americans every day. On the back end: You will build new systems with modern technology within the existing ecosystem of legacy government systems. Our work is to build functional, resilient software for production so that vital services are consistently available to those who need them. This usually means getting to know legacy systems and determining how to replicate the system's behavior or how to integrate with these systems. If you care deeply about how software systems work over time, and building systems for longevity and resilience, this work is for you. 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.
