Hi I’m Jason! Public Design Jobs is a job board for design and innovation jobs in the public sector, worldwide. I created Public Design Jobs to help people discover career and job opportunities at the intersection of design and the public good.
As a professional in this field for some years now, I’m struck by how there’s a lot of missed opportunities in matching employers and job-seekers. Many designers and other innovation professionals I know are seeking more social impact and meaning in their work, yet they are often unaware of the many available opportunities in the public sector. As design and innovation positions are relatively new to government, employers often do not know where to find talent. Hence, both sides miss out.
By making this job board, I do hope to bring both sides together. As Public Design Jobs is a sister site to Public Design Vault – a curated directory of 500+ design tools & resources for the public good – I’m hoping there will be serendipitous opportunities for people to discover a new meaningful and impactful career in design.
