We’re solving big problems

Millions of people use federal government services every day. Veterans apply for health care. Immigrants apply for naturalization. Too often, outdated tools and complex systems make these interactions cumbersome and frustrating.

To improve these services, USDS hires mission-driven professionals into term-limited ‘tours of civic service.’ By working alongside civil servants, they help address some of the most critical needs.

Delivering a better government experience

Our small, highly empowered teams use their expertise to develop human-centered solutions to the federal government’s most pressing technical challenges. Explore a few of our projects.

By the people, for the people

Every person, from all walks of life, interacts with their government. We hire people from a range of cultural, geographical, and ethnic backgrounds to improve the services that millions rely on. Meet a few staff members who are passionate about applying their work and lived experiences to public service.
