On Friday, Jan. 20 Donald Trump became President of the United States, and since then the protests have been nearly constant.
There was that small but somewhat violent protest on K Street on Friday, the giant Women’s March on the Mall on Saturday, protests against Trump’s move to advance the Keystone XL pipeline and Dakota Access pipeline on Tuesday and that Greenpeace “RESIST” banner near the White House on Wednesday. Many, it seems, are looking to make their displeasure heard.
In this atmosphere, why not make it your mission to improve the way the U.S. government interacts with its citizens through government services? This is precisely what U Street-based Nava, the company that fixed HealthCare.gov, does. And if you want to do it, too, here’s some good news — the firm is hiring. Drive government services design as a software engineer, product manager or DevOps engineer.
According to Lyft General Manager Stephen Taylor, the ridesharing company is growing fast in the D.C. area. This means more rides, and a bigger team. Here in D.C. the company is hiring a legislative council for its government relations team.

Then this gig is for you.
In keeping with the pink theme, downtown-D.C. based events software company Social Tables is hiring too — join as the director of engineering.

It probably doesn’t hurt if you love the color pink, too.
