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:
In the 2017 San Jose flood, 14,000 people were displaced, 700 buildings were damaged, and the losses amounted to $100 million. There was a lack of real time flooding information which caused the disaster response to be delayed. To help our community prepare for the future, Code for San Jose is helping a local high school student build out an automated way to detect floods using traffic camera feeds and an AI algorithm.
Project Manager Goals and Responsibilities:
Keep the project’s momentum up by checking in regularly with team members
Create and maintain a roadmap for the project
Organize coding volunteer efforts
Keep the Code for San Jose executive team up to date with how the project is progressing
Identify key relationships that the project needs in order to succeed.
