Product & Technology Department, NY
For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States. Whether it’s ending mass incarceration, achieving full equality for the LGBT community, advancing racial justice, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties and civil rights cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach. With more than one million members, activists, and supporters, the ACLU is a nationwide organization that fights tirelessly in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C., for the principle that every individual’s rights must be protected equally under the law, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, national origin, record of arrest or conviction.
The ACLU’s Product Development team is looking for a full-time junior to mid-level Software Engineer to join our Product Development team and contribute to public-facing products in support of the organization’s mission. We’re a multidisciplinary team working with stakeholder groups across the organization and within the broader Product & Technology department. In close collaboration with stakeholders, the team brainstorms, builds, and refines web and mobile software products that both educate constituents about their rights, and provide direct opportunities for meaningful political action. The team is introducing new interactive tools and experiences, as well as improving the user experience of existing systems.
The Software Engineer reports to the Head of Product Development, and will play an important role on our small team.
