Introducing the Public Interest Tech Job Board

The newly developed Public Interest Tech Job Board is a collection of curated opportunities in public interest technology. Code for America believes that people with design, product, analytical, and technical expertise can make a difference in how government works.

What is public interest tech?

Public Interest: contributing to the common good. We use this to describe several types of organizations, such as:

  • governments
  • non-profits that partner with governments
  • for-profits that have a strong focus on social impact

Tech: any skills required to build products and services. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • product and project managers
  • researchers and designers
  • developers
  • analysts
  • content strategists

Time to Start Planning National Day of Civic Hacking 2018!

For our April meeting, we’ll be setting up the project timeline for our August National Day of Civic Hacking event. Our guest speaker for our April meeting will be announced soon, along with speakers for upcoming meetings. We’ll be recapping results of March outreach events, and setting up work groups for NDCH organizing. Members are also welcome to share their own projects and bring ideas for NDCH projects.

We’ll have light foods and refreshments. Please RSVP by the end of March so we have a reasonable headcount for munchies.
