Code for San Jose is an all-volunteer organization. We are a chapter of Code for America.
As a chapter, we focus on civic innovation and government technology. We welcome everyone interested in solving community problems through technology, user experience research, and community partnerships.
Our mission is to make community services more transparent, accessible, and equitable by collaborating with local government and other community-based organizations on civic projects.
We have over 30 active volunteers with over 8 active projects. Our leadership team consists of 9 other directors, 2 executive directors and 6 project leaders.
As a group, we meet every other Thursday at 6:30 PM PST to sync up and work on projects.
About the Role:
San Jose State University hosts a Record Clearance Project (RCP): https://www.sjsu.edu/justicestudies/projects-and-events/rcp/index.html
Code for San Jose is partnering with the RCP team to digitally deliver university-level legal classes to local county inmates. In order to do so, we are looking for a security expert to help craft a proposal for how the university can security deliver digital classes to inmates that is also mindful of County Jail officials' concerns about malicious users.
