Ad Hoc is a digital services company that helps the government better serve people through modern technology and product development practices. Some examples of the services we support include Healthcare.gov and VA.gov, both of which are used by millions of people. We help implement modern technologies that government agencies are increasingly interested in, bringing in best practices as we do: among other things, this includes API design, implementation, and governance; platform infrastructure for developers; responsive, accessible websites; and mobile applications. Our company is growing quickly, with over 150 engineers already, and so we are looking for a Vice President of Engineering who can help build the culture, practices, and systems that will enable us to deliver impact at scale.

What You’ll Do

The Vice President of Engineering is the leader and cultural steward of the engineering team at Ad Hoc. They are responsible for managing the overall “health” of the engineering practice, which includes defining best practices and approaches that support a 21st century government, as well as building a diverse team and an inclusive culture that supports our people as we grow. The VP will also serve as a bridge between the engineering team and Ad Hoc’s executive leadership and work alongside the leaders of other disciplines, which include product management, research, design, and security. Finally, this role will serve as a public-facing evangelist for more effective engineering practices within government and drive thought-leadership in these areas.

What You’ll Bring

Successful candidates will have a track-record of building and scaling high-performing engineering teams through rapid growth. The willingness to dive in and build new systems and processes, sometimes from scratch, is essential, as is leading through influence within a heavily matrixed environment. Previous experience working in a client services organization (i.e., consulting or a digital agency) is preferred, as is interest in working with the government.
