We are seeking a self-starting, collaborative and organised Programme Manager with proven experience of hands-on research and great communication skills.


You will be able to combine thinking and doing to lead delivery of projects in our Digital Society strand that look at the impact of technology on society.

About Doteveryone

Doteveryone champions responsible technology for the good of everyone in society. We are an independent think tank that explores how technology is changing society, shows what responsible technology can look like, and builds communities to improve the way technology shapes our world.

Martha Lane Fox founded Doteveryone following her Dimbleby Lecture in 2015 where she called for a new organisation to help us shape our digital world and navigate the moral and ethical issues it presents. From that vision, we’ve grown into a small and dedicated London-based team, working to make responsible technology the new normal.
