This is a fully remote position. 

Work on things that matter

Ad Hoc is a digital services company that helps the federal government better serve people. Our teams use modern, agile methods to design and engineer government systems that connect Veterans with services, bring affordable health care to millions of people, and support important programs like Head Start. And as we work to make critical government services intuitive, accessible, and human-centered, we’re also changing how the government thinks about and uses technology. If you thrive on change, want to help close the gap between consumer expectations and government services, and can see the possibilities in ambiguity, then we want you here with us. 

What matters most

Ad Hoc operates according to our commitment to inclusivity, acceptance, accountability, and humility. We aren’t heroes. We believe in missions larger than our individual selves and leave our egos at the door, learn from our mistakes, and iterate in order to better serve the people in our country. We prioritize building teams that represent the diversity of the people our government serves. We love the challenge of government-size projects. We want to bring skills to federal agencies, help them better meet the needs of their users, and close the gap between consumer expectations and government. 

Built for a remote life

Ad Hoc is remote-first and remote-always. We’ve designed our culture, communications, and tools to support a nationwide distributed team since the beginning. Being remote by design allows Ad Hoc to be thoughtful and intentional about creating diverse teams and supporting them with a work environment that fits their lives. With a generous PTO policy and Slack channels for every interest (from bird watching to space nerds to parenting) our culture embraces the things happening in your life. Maybe you need to adjust your schedule to care for your family or take a bike ride. At Ad Hoc, that’s embraced. 

The VSA team is looking for a Senior Designer. VSA is now moving under the VA PTEMS umbrella and the Labor Categories have changed. 

What you’ll do as a Senior UX Designer

As an Ad Hoc Senior UX Designer, you’ll be part of a cross-functional team, working closely with stakeholders, product managers, and software engineers. With projects spanning from user interface design to service design, our designers tend to be generalists, with some developing skills in accessibility or user research. No matter where your particular interests lie, we may have something for you. Some of your responsibilities will include:

  • Delivering design work, including discovery artifacts, sketches and rough prototypes, wireframes, UX flows, and high fidelity prototypes
  • Managing deadlines through teamwork
  • Using your design skills to make strong typography, layout, and hierarchy choices
  • Providing design critique, heuristic evaluations, and competitive analysis
  • Providing and receiving mentorship from other designers
  • Contributing to design libraries and providing visual design and brand artifacts
  • Participating in company initiatives and recruiting efforts 
  • Creating business development materials

More than that, our ideal candidate wants to contribute to work that is bigger than themselves and wants to make a difference collaborating with their team. They care deeply about building better products, better relationships, and better trust in each interaction people have with their government. They believe in intuitive, easy-to-use government services. They collaborate well with engineers, product, stakeholders, and other teams. They mentor and guide more junior designers. 

They’re human-centered.

And if you don’t check every box on the list? That doesn’t mean you can’t help us in our mission to deliver critical government services. Talk to us!
