Let’s show what’s possible, together
If you believe in the power of technology, design and collaboration to improve lives at scale, then you’ll likely enjoy the work we do.
However, what we do is just as important as how we do it. Code for Canada is a workplace that values inclusion, transparency, continuous improvement and empathy above all else. If you share those values, then we want to work with you, whether as a C4C staff member or as a collaborator!
Code for Canada collaborators are digital professionals that work in multidisciplinary teams on fixed-term contracts with government host teams. They help their government partners build their digital capacity by modelling digital approaches and principles while building something meaningful. Teams have the opportunity to rapidly deploy technology that is easy to use, grounded in user research, and refined through iterative prototyping.
All collaborators become part of our collaborator network. As opportunities become available, our collaborators are called on to take on projects that matter.
You’ll get to build connections with like minded professionals in your field at all levels of their career. Junior collaborators can benefit from feedback and mentorship while senior collaborators have the opportunity to develop their coaching, management and leadership skills. Hone your technical skills with the support of industry experts.
New to civic tech or digital government? Code for Canada’s onboarding program will cover all you need to know to be prepared to work in the public sector. Beyond the technical, we’ll help you build up important skills around client and stakeholder management, bureaucracy hacking, working in the open, and more.
After you complete an active contract, you’re invited to stay in our network and raise your hand for any upcoming projects. In addition, you’ll be invited to Code for Canada events and webinars to connect with like-minded tech professionals who want to work on meaningful projects.
We're less interested in building solutions for only those who can afford them and instead are motivated to help people at scale. Government aims to do the same and needs help from tech and design professionals to make it happen.
We aim to model culture change and digital ways of working for others. We collaborate with empathy and meet partners where they are in their digital transformation journey.
We view every opportunity as a learning experience and know there’s much to learn from our partners. We're curious and eager to explore how practices such as agile and lean startup can be used to better understand problems faced by residents and the public servants working to solve them.
We are able to actively work with teammates as a partner, motivator and teacher. We openly and directly provide and ask for feedback, and we want to work with new partners, like public servants, who are as eager to help people as we are.
In small teams, it’s vital that teammates are able to jump in and out of roles and tasks to push progress forward. We are scrappy, resourceful and creative problem solvers. There is no real “typical day.” While teams will define some sprint plans and decision making processes, things can change on the fly.
“We work hard to make Code for Canada a workplace we can be proud of: this is a team that supports growth, and makes it possible to bring your whole self to work”
