The Advocacy Institute was created to support the legislative advocacy of social justice and movement-building organizations in across New York State. In the last 5 years, we’ve helped hundreds of organizers and advocates engage in more efficient and effective legislative advocacy. The Advocacy Institute is a high impact work-environment. We create and sustain this environment by engaging proactively in intentional and transparent discussions about identity, power, oppression, trust, capacity building, teamwork, and performance. Throughout, we ground ourselves in a commitment to feminist, multiracial leadership.
The Software Developer drives the advancement of our tools and data engineering processes. The position is part of a team that builds and produces products to satisfy our internal, member and client needs, and requires someone with experience in effective product management and team communication.

The Software Developer reports to the Executive Director and collaborates with consultants and agencies as needed.
