Code for Jersey City is a nonpartisan, civic-tech, volunteer community group that collaborates with local government and community partners. We build new tools that help with local civic issues, advocate for better technology and open government, and provide a space for residents to voice and act on their ideas so that our city can grow for, and by the people. We use open data, user research and other metrics to visualize trends to support our city. We offer innovative ways to use the web and mobile software in government operations and community outreach for residents to be informed and empowered.
We are the official local Code for America Brigade. Code for America is a non-partisan, non-political 501 organization founded in 2009 to address the widening gap between the public and private sectors in their effective use of technology and design.
We need everyone to participate. Come join other developers, designers, data geeks, civic leaders, community organizers, and idea-makers and get involved in making a change.
