Job Details

SSB BART Group (SSB) helps companies design and enhance their IT systems - including web sites, web applications, software, hardware, and services - so they are usable by people with disabilities.

Our proven Accessibility Management Platform (AMP) is the industry’s first on-demand solution that integrates the business and technical aspects of complying with regulations such as Section 508, ADA, and WCAG
