A Coforma career contributes to the public good.

Working at Coforma

Values-Driven

Our work is driven by our values–from the types of partnerships we nurture, to our approach to hiring, management, and operations. We use an intake framework to form aligned partnerships, and we take on challenges across important focus areas–immigration, Veterans services, voting and civic engagement, healthcare and health IT, access to justice and equity–that benefit from our human-centered design approach.

Our collective effort to embrace transparency, collaboration, and accessibility reflects in the employee experience, as well as in the digital services, civic tech, Veteran, patient, and healthcare provider communities we serve and support.

Distributed, Autonomous Work

Our belief in autonomy and flexibility shines as employees can work from anywhere in the US, saving money on commutes and leaving more time for pets, families, hobbies, and personal goals. Work from a home office, a co-working space, or that nice spot in your yard. It’s all the same to us. We get creative in helping you feel connected wherever you lay your laptop.

Our flexible work hours support your caregiving responsibilities, personal appointments, and other life circumstances. Read why we’re remote-first in our Medium post.

Public Servants at Heart

Though our employees share a common desire to make a positive difference, the paths to Coforma vary greatly. Many Cofolx have backgrounds in service, whether through their own volunteerism, military experience, prior work at nonprofits, or cause-based work as civil servants in the public sector. Others come to us as a first step in doing more meaningful work.

Whatever your background, Coforma welcomes you to lend your diverse skills and experiences to our collective, collaborative effort to innovate and improve the way digital services and products are delivered for the people and communities they serve.

My favorite aspect about working on the engineering team has to be the sense of support and collaboration I get from every single engineer, regardless of their skill level or experiences. Everyone on the team is willing to help each other out.
