Sydney Fellowship

Use your skills to directly improve everyday people’s lives and transform government services from the inside out

The Opportunity

The Code for Australia Fellowship is a full-time, paid program for experienced technologists and designers. Cross-functional teams of 2-3 people are embedded in government agencies to develop digital tools which help deliver key public services to those who need it most.

We’re excited to announce a new Fellowship opportunity in Sydney that will be kicking off in February 2020, with our partners at Legal Aid NSW.

We’re looking for a full-stack developer (Javascript frameworks will be helpful) a service/UX designer (with digital experience) and a data scientist or data-savvy developer (with experience in Machine Learning) to make up a team of three.

Over six months, you’ll work collaboratively to develop a prototype “Triage” tool, helping understand people’s requests and direct them accordingly. The functionality will be  informed by user and organisational needs and leverage ML to improve the user experience and generate insights from data.

The salary for Fellows in Sydney currently is $100k, pro-rated and including super.

If you’re ready to express your interest, fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch. If you’re not sure if you have the right experience, we encourage you to apply anyway and we can discuss it together.

Applications close 5pm, Friday 31st January, 2020.
