Senior Software Engineer
Founded in 2016, Good Call is a community-centered tech nonprofit based in NYC working to disrupt the cycle of mass incarceration. Our mission is to empower communities of color and create systemic transformation by using technology and community organizing to provide immediate access to legal support. We do this in several ways:
Good Call’s arrest support hotline [ 1-833-3-GOODCALL] allows anyone to access free legal representation 24/7 if they or someone they know get arrested
Good Call’s Youth Justice program provides system-involved youth the opportunity to build community organizing skills and become champions for justice literacy in their own communities
Good Call advocates for policy reform in the criminal justice space
Good Calls hotline and youth programming is currently focused in NYC, but our long term ambitions are national. Good Call's software products include our user-facing website, hotline app, and lawyer dashboard web app.
We are a group of intellectually curious, empowered and motivated people with a common thread of social justice propelling us forward. We are fueled by a passion for the eradication of White supremacy and systemic racism that routinely harm Black and Brown people the most. We thrive on being creative, collaborative self-starters that truly believe our commitment to transform this destructive narrative can expand beyond NYC, and change the nation and the world.
Jelani Anglin and Gabriel Leader-Rose cofounded Good Call in 2016, motivated by a desire to use community organizing and technology to combat injustice by the police and criminal legal system. Their dynamic and ambitious leadership is a driving force behind Good Call. Jelani Anglin is a community organizer at heart, and is motivated by his belief in solidarity being the foundation for movements to succeed. As CEO, Jelani provides high level guidance and makes strategic decisions alongside his co-founder and COO Gabriel Leader-Rose.
Gabe Leader-Rose brings experience in technology and a dedication to anti-racism and abolition. As COO, Gabe facilitates the development of Good Call’s product and software, legal operations, and organizational strategy alongside Jelani.
Good Call wants to ensure that those that come along for the journey are committed to helping us write the future. We also believe in true partnership, and want to become the premiere employer of people who are inspired by challenges, are committed to problem solving, and are as supportive as they are resourceful.
