Project Manager

Florida Justice Technology Center
Florida 32308
  • Job Type
    Contract

We’re looking for a dynamic individual that can help us further our mission of increasing access to justice through the innovative use of technology.

 

Position: Project Manager

 

What We Do

The Florida Justice Technology Center works at the center of the justice ecosystem in Florida - partnering with legal aid programs, the courts, the clerk’s offices, the private bar, social services organizations, and many others. We identify, create and promote web-based tools, resources, and applications to support advocates working in poverty law and to support members of the public dealing with legal issues without benefit of counsel.

 Here are a few examples of our work:

  • Manage FLAdvocate.org, the online hub for advocates to find email groups, resource libraries, and connect with colleagues.
  • Manage FloridaLawHelp.org, the state’s legal information website.
  • Florida Name Change, a tool to help transgender people update their legal name and gender marker on official government identification.
  • Develop a website for the Florida Health Justice Project, a new nonprofit working to improve access to affordable healthcare.
  • Develop a statewide triage system (read our Evaluation Report on our pilot).

 

Project Manager Role

Working with our partners, the Project Manager (PM) is responsible for managing the development of web-based tools and resources. The PM may also be called upon to prototype applications, research and identify technology solutions, and identify and recruit subject matter experts both at the local and national levels. The PM may also need to present these tools at conferences and webinars.

 

It is required that the PM have a Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) certification or be willing to work towards it. Here is why this is required – the access to justice community is a complex ecosystem that requires a keen ability to understand stakeholder needs and develop solutions that advance the collective mission. This role requires someone that has or will take the time to study and hone their craft as a project manager.
