If you’re a developer, designer, researcher, data enthusiast, urban planner, or entrepreneur who wants to make a difference, this is your opportunity.
Join Code for America and use your skills to give back to your community.
In previous years men and women left tech companies such as Google and Apple, and design jobs at Newsweek and Conde Nast – all looking to use their skills to give back.
During the 11-month program, you will not only receive a living-wage stipend, travel expenses, and healthcare, but also the training and mentorship to be a leader in business, local government, or both:
Gov 2.0 Training. You will start with a crash course in municipal government and gain practical understanding of the vital intersection of government and technology.
Connections. The biggest names in the tech industry and the Gov 2.0 movement will provide you with unparalleled networking, mentoring, and support.
Professional Development. You will develop lasting relationships, learn new skills and languages in a fast-paced, startup atmosphere.
Autonomy. Working in small teams with talented individuals you’ll decide what you build and how you build it — from start to finish.
A Labor of Love. You’ll not only accomplish a lot and make the world a better place, but you’ll have a lot of fun working with other passionate people. To borrow a line from the Peace Corps, it will be the toughest job you’ll ever love.
If you’re chosen, you’ll need to be available full-time in the San Francisco Bay Area starting in January 2014 through November 2014. As a startup, Code for America cannot at this time sponsor work visas for international applicants. Non-US citizens with the necessary paperwork to participate in the year-long fellowship are welcome to apply.
If you have any questions about either the fellowship or the application, please contact us at email@example.com
