Code for America is a non-profit that builds a government that works for the people, by the people, in the digital age. We believe government services need to be simple, effective, and easy to use, working at scale to help all Americans, starting with the people who need them most.
Especially in the time of Coronavirus, millions of Americans are about to rely on government assistance to support themselves and their families. We help governments across the country deliver this assistance with user-centered, iterative approaches. For example, our GetCalFresh product (https://GetCalFresh.org) processed a quarter of all CalFresh (food stamps) applications in California in late 2019, and our application volume has skyrocketed in the last week.

We are hiring for a few key roles:
* Security Engineer (Staff or Principal Level) - Lead our organization's security culture
* Software Engineer (Senior level, with Java experience)
* Network Coordinator (Remote)
* Program Manager - Brigade Network (Senior level)
Also, there are 85+ local volunteer groups across the country that are doing this work that could use your skills, and help you find a local job doing this kind of thing.
