About NAVA
Our mission is to partner with government agencies to deliver digital services and infrastructure that makes programs simple, effective, and accessible to all. As a public benefit corporation, our intent is not to win as much work as we can, but to design a portfolio that makes the highest leverage progress against that mission.

Nava has a role in every important program that serves vulnerable populations and can apply industry-level ecosystem pressure to transform service experiences, program outcomes, and agency adaptability.

Nava is at the forefront of reimagining how our government serves its people, and we’re looking for a Recruiting Manager to lead recruiting team. You're an empathetic, detail-oriented doer who has a keen eye for bias and an overflowing passion for inclusion and diversity. You have a flexible and strategic mindset and can work transparently across team members internally. You are the face to Nava, ensuring that our candidates have a positive experience.

Nava provides opportunities to do meaningful, impactful, mission-oriented work. As a public benefit corporation, we have a social mission written into our founding charter. The people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve access, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. We see this as an opportunity, but it is also important to highlight the challenges we face in advance.

The government contracting ecosystem is a compliance-driven multi-stakeholder environment - particularly when compared to the operating environments for companies of our size in the private sector. Successful members of our team understand how to be innovative within this environment when responding to proposals or delivering software and infrastructure. Finding and recommending ways to improve the way government digital services are procured and built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission.
