We are Maximus
Since 1975, we have improved the lives of millions of citizens by supporting programs that make a real difference.
Our mission is simple: strengthen communities and better the lives of those we serve. At Maximus, we understand how challenging public programs can be. This is because it is our sole focus. We proudly design, develop, and deliver innovative and impactful health and human services programs to ensure these challenges don't get in the way of providing life and community-changing services.
Maximus is more than just a place of employment — it's a community of professionals committed to serving the needs of people and one another. Central to our corporate community is a commitment to promoting an inclusive culture where each person is treated with dignity and respect.
Maximus helps millions of Americans get the health and human services they need. We make complex government programs more accessible and easier to use and understand — including for some of the nation’s most vulnerable and at-risk communities.
Maximus appreciates that every interaction with a government service in which we’re involved reflects on our design process – whether citizens are accessing a website for information about Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), calling a contact center with questions about COVID-19 mobile testing, using an app to enroll in Medicaid, or visiting an agency office for employment services.
