If you have more experience than is reflected here, that’s great! We’ll be pleased to exercise your broader/deeper skill set. We value inclusion and welcome diverse viewpoints.

Eligibility: You must be eligible to work in the US and you must reside in the US. Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor work visas at this time. We encourage all interested candidates to apply!

A note from Truss: We know you’re likely experiencing a lot of disruption as our nation (and our world) responds to COVID-19 - we’re experiencing it, too. There are two things we want you to know when it comes to hiring.

First, we’re financially stable. We have a variety of well-established government contracts that we expect to continue over the next few years. Also, we’re winning new work, and we have a robust rainy day fund.

Second, during video interviews, you’ll likely see more of our human side. Family members, partners, kids and pets are home with some of us! We promise to be present and engaged, but we may be a little...harried. It’s OK if you are, too - we understand that everyone is experiencing extra stress right now. If you have any questions along the way, please let us know, and stay healthy and safe.

What is your Interview process like?

Trussels will conduct resume review and select a small cohort to move forward. Here’s what it will look like from there:

  • 30 minute intro call with a single Trussel
  • 60 minute behavioral interview with a pair of Trussels from varying practices

Those who advance will move to:

  • 2hr technical interview with Trussels from your intended practice
  • Final interview with the Hiring Manager and one of our founders
