Have you ever used a government website before? Chances are it barely stands up to today's standards.

Fixed width layouts. Payment processors you've never heard of. Default fonts. Even your GeoCities website had more flair.

This is a problem that goes beyond aesthetics, however. These are essential services.

Our featured company this week, Nava, helps ensure the government's digital services meet the public's needs. Their work has helped millions of people access critical government services, such as health insurance, food assistance, and housing assistance. One of the things I like most about their work is their approach to equity and making sure that what they build serves everyone.

If you like the idea of serving the public from a private employer capacity, be sure to check them out. For even more social impact job opportunities, keep scrollin'.
