For our Berlin office, AlgorithmWatch is looking for an experienced PR & Outreach Manager. 

AlgorithmWatch is a civil society organization based in Berlin. Evaluating the social impact of automated decision-making (ADM) and AI-based systems, we’re dedicated to ensuring that these systems are used to strengthen human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. All too often, they restrict people’s rights as surveillance tools and dehumanize people in need of support. We’re working on changing this by designing and executing political campaigns, publishing journalistic stories, as well as contributing to scientific research and technical development.

Please visit our website, follow us on Twitter  Mastodon, and LinkedIn, or subscribe to our newsletters to get an idea of our work and see some of our team members.

Join the AlgorithmWatch team and work with us to protect fundamental rights and strengthen the common good!

Your future role

As a new member of our PR and outreach team, you contribute to informing the public about the impact that automatic decisions have on people’s lives. We try to show what we can do to make algorithmic systems a means to pursue the common good. With this perspective in mind, you work closely together with all of the AlgorithmWatch teams in Berlin and Zurich, designing our project communication and new campaigns. We’re looking forward to hearing your ideas!
