OpenPlans is a non-profit technology organization focused on civic engagement and open government. We use journalism and open source software to turn data into accessible, useful information. This work engages the average person in shaping their community.
Openness is at the core of all of our work: open data, open source software, and open lines of communication. Our approach to technology mirrors our approach to social change. All of our software is open source. We believe that technology can transform city functions - like urban planning and transportation - and we believe that openness contributes to good government.
Based in New York, OpenPlans is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit with a team of 50 software developers, designers, policy experts, educators, and journalists. We were founded in 1999 by technology and finance entrepreneur Mark Gorton.
We are looking for partners to:
* Give individuals better ways to shape their communities
* Develop software that is a true public resource
* Facilitate openness and transparency in government – less–ZoomInfo
