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:
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

Apply now for the Code for America Apprenticeship Program, a new opportunity for people of color. We’re looking for recent graduates from college or bootcamp programs, people returning to the workforce and wanting to update their skills, and people early in their career looking for more experience.
We’re going back for our future to the Hillsborough County Entrepreneur Collaborative Center in Ybor City, where we’ve met in the past. Regular meetings will resume here, the first Monday of each month, starting at 6pm. We’ll have light foods and refreshments, hear from members about current projects and from local civic leaders on current needs.
We’ll be talking about some upcoming outreach and community engagement opportunities in March and regrouping a bit, as a Code for America local affiliate. Please RSVP by the end of February so we have a reasonable headcount for munchies. RSVP at our MeetUp page.
We are a Code for America Brigade, a group of volunteers contributing our talents toward improving the way our local governments and community organizations use the web. Code for Tampa Bay Brigade is about action and if you’re someone who likes to take action, you’ve come to the right place!
