Too often, outdated tools, systems, and practices make interacting with the government cumbersome and frustrating. The U.S. Digital Service (USDS) was founded in August 2014, bringing together the best engineering and design talent and changing our government’s approach to technology.
Since then, hundreds of mission-driven professionals have completed tours of service, furthering the USDS mission to deliver better government services to the American people through technology and design. We’ve grown from less than a dozen staffers to more than 200 today.
One of our goals is to build a workforce that reflects the people we serve.
We believe that fostering diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility (DEIA) is vital to our ability to imagine and build digital solutions that solve everyday challenges people face.
