JustFix.nyc is seeking a full-time full stack developer with 4+ years of relevant experience to join our mission to co-design and build data-driven tools for tenants, housing organizers, and legal advocates fighting displacement.
Reporting directly to the Director of Product, they will be joining JustFix.nyc’s growing engineering team at a critical time as we scale our services and begin to integrate our products together to streamline collective action within the tenant movement. This is a chance to build within multi-channel communications (e.g. Web, SMS, and Email) for a wide spectrum of technical literacy, which presents a variety of exciting and unique engineering challenges.
The ideal candidate is an emotionally intelligent and humble developer who knows how to build and share ownership of projects that show great commitment to positive user experience. They will be joining a team engaging with tenant leaders, fellow housing justice nonprofit staff, city and state elected officials’ offices, other strategic partners, and technologists following a community-led equity-driven model.
This is not a traditional tech environment— which is precisely why we love what we do. As a non-profit, we aren’t driven by monetization. We respect user privacy and don't share their data; we are driven by true impact within our communities and our dream of upending systemic inequalities. As a small and agile team, we have the freedom to redefine traditional tech practices and are continuously pushing our co-design framework, product development strategies, and usability research methods to be better. If you are fed up with mainstream tech culture and want to co-create new spaces for our work to thrive in, our organization is for you.
JustFix.nyc’s team is largely based in New York City. We are currently working remotely due to COVID-19 and will continue to do so until it is safe to return to an office in New York City.

JustFix.nyc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that builds tools for tenants and advocates fighting displacement. Our mission is to galvanize a 21st century tenant movement working towards housing for all — and we think the power of data and technology should be accessible to those fighting this fight. Our vision is to provide tools that make it easier for tenants to know and exercise their rights. By combining highly scalable web-based, mobile-friendly, and SMS tools with advanced housing data analysis, we have a mission to galvanize a 21st century tenant movement working towards housing for all. We are driven by the belief that all NYC residents deserve a dignified tenancy, with access to legal representation, social services, and opportunities to organize while navigating the complex and currently inequitable world of housing.
Our team is supported by the Robin Hood Foundation, Open Society Foundations, New York Community Trust, and many others. We are proud to work with a network of over 50 community-based organizations, legal service providers, and other partner organizations who collectively serve tens of thousands of tenants every year.
JustFix.nyc is committed to equity and fostering a community that values diverse perspectives and experiences, particularly from those who we aim to serve. We actively seek a diverse pool of applicants from, or who have worked closely with, historically marginalized groups, including but not limited to people with disabilities, people of color, LGBTQ people, first- or second-generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.
