Work on things that matter

    What is this job board?

    This job board is a collection of curated opportunities in public interest technology. We believe 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

    Current government employees share their journey into public service:
