We’re hiring a responsible data program manager

/ January 7, 2015

Care about ethics, privacy and security? Seen too many projects use tech without realizing what might go wrong? Want to help activists and human rights organizations be smart about using technology and avoid doing harm? Want to wrestle with difficult concepts like “informed consent” and figure out what they mean in real life?

If you can get excited about hard questions like these, and you’d like to be part of a lean, dedicated and distributed organization working at the intersection of technology and advocacy, then this might be a job for you.

Take a look at the Job Description, and reach out if you have questions. Otherwise, send a CV and a cover letter telling us why you’re a good fit. Applications should be sent to anneke@theengineroom.org [Anneke’s PGP key] before midnight UTC on January 21.

About the contributor

Tom started out writing and editing for newspapers, consultancies and think tanks on topics including politics and corruption in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, then moved into designing and managing election-related projects in countries including Myanmar, Bangladesh, Rwanda and Bolivia. After getting interested in what data and technology could add in those areas and elsewhere, he made a beeline for The Engine Room. Tom is trying to read all of the Internet, but mostly spends his time picking out useful resources and trends for organisations using technology in their work.
