It's an incredibly exciting time for us, not only because of what is happening around the world in civic technology, but also because of what is happening in government around Australia. We have everyone from our neighbours who are more interested than ever to contribute to civic issues, to our Prime Minister asking for change.
Our work at Code for Australia is based on the belief that the problems we face cannot be solved unless a greater number and diversity of people become involved in civic life and have input into critical community issues. The current situation - where few participate and public institutions don't reflect the interests or demographics of the people they serve - is a dead end.
Reinventing government for the 21st Century can only happen if new ideas and priorities can gain a purchase in the public sector, and that won't happen without broadening the spectrum of people who have a hand in shaping public life. As such, we're asking you to get onboard and join our team.
We're looking for our first Chief Technology and Marketing Officers. They're big roles that you'll be able to shape as we grow and continue to help government find new ways to address old problems. Have a look at the positions, and contact us if you have any questions.
