London, England, United Kingdom

Description

About Doteveryone

Doteveryone is an Internet think tank, based in London. We’re fighting for a fairer Internet because we believe a vibrant, inclusive digital society is as important as a thriving digital economy. We’re doing that by helping businesses and public bodies make more responsible technology and championing a deeper digital understanding for everyone.

We make change through partnerships, pilots and provocations. Our live projects include investigating a fair trade mark for tech, developing best practice for digital leaders, and helping small organisations do better diversity reporting. We also do research and conduct experiments to arrive at new ways of making useful change in a complex, changing world.

About this role

We are seeking a self-starting, collaborative and organised Trustworthy Tech 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 the Trustworthy Tech System programme, build relationships and get the best out of the prototypes we create and research we undertake to create practical improvement in how internet tech is developed in industry.

We welcome applications from people who want to work a 3, 4 or 5 day week. The role is for a six month contract, starting as soon as possible in 2018.

The Trustworthy Tech Programme Manager will drive forward a range of activities, using hands-on research and analysis, developing new partnerships, and communicating our ideas and results through the program. This will include applying their research skills to co-design prototype programs, create materials for participating organisations, support participants, gather, organise and analyse results, and write blog posts, articles and longer reports to share what we do and learn. This fast-paced role requires working with a diverse range of stakeholders and will see you connect the project team and potential partners (including consumer groups, civil society organisations, industry associations and more).

Doteveryone’s work focuses on creating interesting and provocative ideas and prototypes, and within this programme we will create and test several prototypes and artefacts, working with partners to strengthen our concepts and transition them into practice. We’re interested in how to make the tech industry more responsible and accountable to society. The Trustworthy Tech System programme is exploring how tech businesses can demonstrate their competence, honesty and reliability, and at the same time build consumer understanding, agency and trust.


This is a key role in the team, working closely with colleagues and external partners to deliver an ambitious programme. The role works closely with the Responsible Technology manager who oversees the Trustworthy Tech programme, and will involve active collaboration with all parts of the organisation - including the networks, communications and other programme teams. Candidates must be comfortable working with colleagues online day to day in text chat (Slack) and using online collaboration tools such as Google docs and Trello.
