Millions of people interact with the City of Boston digitally each year to do everything from finding information on City services to paying a parking ticket. On the Digital Services team, we believe these experiences should be easy to navigate, dignified and even delightful. The Digital Services team within DoIT is focused on partnering with City departments to improve service delivery across the City. We’re a cross-functional team with a mission to improve the user experience of existing digital services, better engage and communicate with our residents, and build new systems to improve how the City delivers services online.
The Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) provides and maintains mission-critical technologies for the City’s more than 18,000 employees and the hundreds of thousands of constituents they serve.
Brief Job Description:
As a front-end engineer, you will work on small teams to build scalable infrastructure for the City – designing, implementing and delivering services that City residents depend on. You care deeply about working on technology that improves people’s lives, but don’t think technology is always the answer. You are passionate about building large-scale systems that are inclusive, well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure, and you’ll help set high standards for our teams in terms of simplicity, empathy, and accessibility.
The full stack engineer in this role will be responsible for developing end to end systems, modernizing existing legacy enterprise platforms to improve City department’s public facing processes, and experiences which will enable users to have more access to the programs and services they need, in real-time, in a more user friendly and uncomplicated way. This individual will be involved in everything, from strategy and planning through post production testing and support.
