Code for America
Civic / Government
Code for America builds technology to help government services work for the people who need them most. We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead the development of a key product in our criminal justice portfolio.
We care deeply about reducing incarceration in this country and believe better access to services that help someone rebuild their life are critical to a healthy society.
Millions of people are eligible to clear past offenses from their record that could disqualify them from employment, housing, student loans, or social services. Clear My Record is a free, online, multi-county channel that makes it easy for people to access record clearance opportunities. Code for America’s mission is to clear all eligible records in the country and this role will be pivotal in meeting that aim.
Code for America uses a data-driven, user-centered, and iterative approach to building technology. The Senior Product Manager will help us move from a product pilot that shows real promise to a full scale solution being used across the country.
This role will work alongside the Program Director and report to the Head of Product and is based in San Francisco, CA.
We are looking for someone who sees delivery as the best way to demonstrate value and can drive a fast paced multidisciplinary team to implementation. The ideal candidate will be flexible and adaptable to change: knowing when to move or change direction and remain a clear and effective decision-maker for their team.
The right candidate will be an expert at understanding multiple perspectives (users, partners, leadership and funders) and seeing the bigger picture. They will understand the use of technology and be able to find opportunities where technology can not just improve but radically transform the delivery of public services.
Code for America offers full health and vision benefits, a 401k plan with matching funds, a flexible time-off policy, and a culture that is collaborative, hardworking and fun.
