Recidiviz’s mission is to safely, equitably, and sustainably reduce incarceration.
That mission isn’t possible without a vibrant, diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for every person who’s tasked with doing the work. In order to build intentional tools, provide responsible data stewardship, and bring insights from academia, the reform ecosystem, practitioners, and the justice-impacted, our team has to reflect the perspectives and lived experiences of the communities we serve.
This is not a low bar: the tech ecosystem isn’t a diverse one to draw from, and data protection standards for criminal justice data often bar access for justice-impacted staff. But these challenges are opportunities—the system looks the way it does because of these hurdles. As a result, we are all the more committed to building a team that reflects the communities often left out of this conversation, and who have the most to gain by building a smaller and more equitable system. In the process, we are committed to build a workplace that is inclusive, rewarding, and worth time and dedication.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental to our team culture. These principles play an intrinsic role in how we build our team, how we build our tools, and how we evolve our understanding of the issues we work on and our role addressing them, day after day.

We’re committed to ongoing development: personally, professionally, and in the context of our work and role in the reform ecosystem.
