WHY SHOULD YOU WORK WITH US?
*We work for society*
At Liquid Democracy you work at a non-profit which wants to further social change and strives to find innovative answers to pressing political questions.

*Democracy at work*
We value democratic innovation not only in our projects but also in our internal processes. All team members decide on questions concerning the team together in our weekly plenary. We use our participation platform adhocracy+ to discuss and brainstorm together. As a team member you shape the internal democratic structure as well as our societal mission to enhance and innovate digital democracy.

*Healthy communication*
We think a good work environment needs more than modern computers and flexible working hours (we have those as well). To have healthy and productive discussions, we use and experiment with ideas such as non-violent communication and systemic consensus finding.

ABOUT YOUR WORKPLACE
*Work location*
We have an open-plan office in Neukölln on the first floor. There is an elevator accessible via a ramp, an automatic door, and a non-automatic door. There are several all-gender restrooms that are not barrier-free. Meetings of the entire team take place online or hybrid. Individual groups freely decide whether to meet online, offline or hybrid. After the trial period, team members decide for themselves how much time they want to work from the office or home office, depending on their responsibilities. If it is not possible for you to work in the office, e.g. for accessibility reasons, feel free to contact us and we will find a solution.

*Diversity*
We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, identities and perspectives. Therefore, we encourage you to apply regardless of your background, gender, sexual orientation, age group, physical or mental ability, or social background.
We share the view that organizations in the technology sector in particular need to become more diverse. We still have a long way to go as an organization, but we are actively working to identify and counteract discriminatory structures.

How to apply:

We look forward to your digital application via email to design24@liqd.net. Please include your earliest possible start date and, if you have any, links to previous projects you worked on, for example in the form of a portfolio. Please note: A cover letter explaining your motivation is much more important to us than your CV and certificates. Applications and any questions can be directed to Marcelo (he/him). The deadline for applications is August 11, 2024. Please note that we might already begin with interviews before the deadline.
