BetaNYC is New York City’s civic technology, open data, and civic design community. Starting as a meetup in 2009, it has since grown to be a non-profit organization that hosts events, facilitates policy change, demystifies big ideas, and empowers a new generation of civic hackers. In a strategic partnership with the Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer, BetaNYC is evolving a technology and design lab to support for the City’s community boards.
For the next six months, we are working with NYC Schools’ CS for All program to host SIX civic tech themed hackathons. Additionally, we will be hosting NYC School of Data and begin our five-borough open data education program. We need an energetic special events coordinator, kick ass project manager, and a can-do civic hacker.
From December to May 2019, we need assistance to organize our engagements with NYC Schools’ CS for All Hack League, NYC’s Open Data Week and School of Data events, help us execute our classes/workshops, and help orchestrate magic.
You should be an effective communicator, meticulous organizer, energetic planner, and passionate hacker who can work diligently as part of a small diverse team and ensure coordination across the projects.
We operate on open source principles: you should know how to communicate, collaborate, and think about our work as a collective effort.
Initial appointment will run from December 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. Depending on performance, appointment could be extended.
Commensurate with experience.
To apply, fill out this screendoor ASAP. We’ll be interviewing people on a rolling basis.
