The “call for talents”, launched by The Digital Transformation Team last September allowed to create the current team, which has worked on building the “operating system of the country”. A series of fundamental blocks described inside the Three Year Plan for the Digital Transformation of the Italian Public Administration, upon which simpler and more effective services for citizens, the Public Administration, and enterprises are built.
The team already started several projects, such as PagoPA, a unique node for Italian public payments, where people can pay taxes, university tuition fees and school meals, fines and TARI (solid waste tax), and ANPR - the National Residential Population Register - a single national database designed to combine the demographic data of all Italian residents and Italian residents abroad. In addition to that the Team launched Developers Italia and Designers Italia, the community platforms that provide technical documentation, development and design kits, testing environments, guidelines and a forum, in order to promote the development of digital public services.
The Three Year Plan enters into a critical exectuion phase, which requires now more talents! For this reason the Team has decided to reopen the application process to look for enthusiastic and technologically super skilled candidates with proven experience in computer science (software architecture, mobile application development, open source software, APIs), mathematics and statistics (predictive models, machine learning), product design, user experience.

In the first call for talents launched last September we wrote the "Keep in Mind" reported below. We confirm all we wrote at that time. If you easily frustrate yourself, this job doesn’t suit you.
"We are going to be working in a government environment. We will have the opportunity to collaborate with incredibly bright, smart, strong-willed and well-intentioned people scattered around the Public Administration who have a sincere desire to improve and do the right things. There are, in fact, modern and innovative teams and excellent but isolated units, capable of achieving a lot with few resources.
However, the current status of the public digital infrastructure shows the consequence of lack of agile central coordination. Much has been done in the recent past, but most of the programs are not aligned and many systems and websites were built with outdated technology, insufficient attention to user experience, poor integration and, often, a lack of interoperability.
We will also find many complicated, sometimes unintelligible, norms and rules; we will need to be prepared to cleverly deal with bureaucracy.
People will tell us “you don’t comprehend how the public administration works”, “many already tried and failed” and “in Italy it doesn’t work this way!”
We will get a lot of criticism. Some will be sincere and helpful, some will be prejudiced and cynical. The former will come from people who genuinely want to help, the latter from people who either need to defend the status quo or believe the glass is always “half empty” or, more simply, have learned helplessness.
For those who are not afraid of such obstacles, who feel a deep connection with these objectives and with these principles, thrive in ambiguous situations, have a knack for simplification, our team is the right place."
