Jen Overgaag is a software engineer on the Lantern team at Recidiviz. The bulk of Jen’s career has been as a network engineer, working to bring internet access to hospitals and schools in underserved communities across the world. She joined Recidiviz after spending 6 years at a San Francisco based non-profit, EducationSuperHighway, building out a suite of products to ensure that every school in the United States has high speed, scalable internet. Jen can often be found dancing, making art, or hunting for undiscovered hot springs.
A diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission. People come to Recidiviz to contribute to an urgent cause, and to work alongside incredible coworkers who care as much as they do. To ensure that we’re building intentional products and amplifying the work of others in the reform ecosystem, we are committed to fostering a diverse team that reflects the people we serve.
We combine the efficiency of a tech company with the heart of a non-profit. Recidiviz began as a volunteer project at Google and has since grown into one of the brightest, kindest teams that civic tech has to offer. Our north star: safely and fairly shrinking the criminal justice system.
