Position Details: 

New/Mode is seeking an experienced full stack web developer to work remotely from within Canada or the USA to assist in developing and maintaining a suite of Drupal-based tools that help purpose-driven organizations foster change.  If you are interested in Drupal and other open source technologies, and are excited at the prospect of building a product that uses emerging technologies with an aim to make the world a better place, please apply.

We live in troubling times, where people are increasingly losing trust in democratic institutions.  All of us have a responsibility to reimagine and rejuvenate democracy so that governments work in the interest of those most impacted by their decisions. New/Mode is a social enterprise that's reimagining democratic engagement in the digital age. We help causes empower their supporters, influence decision-makers & win campaigns. Our aim is to power democratic participation wherever the open Internet exists.

With New/Mode's Community Engagement Toolbox, causes connect supporters directly with politicians—at the click of a button—by phone, fax, email, Twitter & letters to editors. We enable causes to rapidly increase campaign scale, media reach, donations, and contact with politicians and influencers.

We were started by one of the world's leading digital rights advocacy organizations, OpenMedia. We believe in empowerment, collaboration, participation and sustainability. Our values are at the heart of what we do.
