Job Description

Organization: Accenture Federal Services
Location: Arlington, VA

We are:

Accenture Federal Services, bringing together commercial innovation with the latest technology to unleash the potential for our federal clients. Every day we bring bold thinking and diverse disciplines to solve problems in new ways. Ready to learn as much as you can? We’ll give you numerous opportunities of formal & informal training sessions to keep your tech smarts sharp.

Why Accenture?

At Accenture, we do much more than sell technology. We deliver game changing solutions that enhance the agility and productivity to deliver meaningful outcomes. We create innovative solutions that deliver outcomes by connecting people, improving processes, and deliver technology that transforms the way businesses, government, and communities live, work and play.

Since the early 90’s, Government agencies have been facing the challenge of liquid expectations created by the start of the digital revolution with the move to the web, but to be relevant in today’s rapidly evolving digital environment means providing citizens, public servants, active duty military, and veterans easy, convenient, and accessible access to government services.

Persistent change, challenged assumptions, and disruption are now the norm, rather than the exception. The lightning-speed of change, driven by technology, is taking us from the digital age toward a new reality, one we call the post-digital world. At Accenture, we believe the future lies in the growing collaboration between humans and technology that delivers outcomes for our clients, their people, and the people they serve.
