The roles and responsibilities of any given USDS staff member vary tremendously, because agencies have different technological needs. Even projects within the same agency require distinct skill sets.
Because of the unpredictability and breadth of our engagements, we focus on hiring technical experts who can adapt to a project’s needs, though we also hire specialists for particular projects.
We are always hiring for a number of different roles, so if you are an expert in your field and are interested in working at USDS, you should apply!
Unfortunately, we are not set up to support internships. We recommend looking into other civic tech organizations that are able to hire and support interns.
