Become a lead organizer of Open Seattle

Open Seattle started in January 2013. Since then we’ve held great events and built fun & useful projects. We’ve formed relationships with people in city, county, and state government, and at local community organizations and companies.

We’re currently seeking a fiscal sponsor for 501(c)3 status (and will have more news about that soon), and have one other big change: we’re seeking a new cohort of lead organizers.

It’s time for new leadership to do new and interesting things with Open Seattle.

Almost a year ago we changed our name from Code for Seattle to Open Seattle to better reflect the diverse skills & fields involved in producing civic technology. Now we’re recruiting new volunteer leadership with the intent of creating a leadership team that reflects the diversity we want to see in the participants of our events and projects.

We encourage women of color, LGBTQIA+ folks, people of color and other underrepresented folks to apply.

We’re looking for volunteers to make a one year commitment to improving Open Seattle & advancing civic technology in Seattle.

The deadline for applications is end of day January 17. It is not required that you have previous experience with Open Seattle.

Over the coming weeks we’ll share more about the roles that lead organizers can take on, and other ways you can get involved.
