    Re:Coded is an innovative tech-for-good non-profit empowering marginalized youth to thrive in today’s technology-driven global economy as software developers, entrepreneurs and technology leaders. Our activities include coding bootcamps, digital skills training, a co-working space (Re:Coded House), and tech workshops and events. We have established operations in 3 countries and have been widely recognized in the media (CNN, BBC, Le Monde and Reuters) and as one of the most innovative education and employment models for refugees and marginalized youth in MENA. We have also been awarded a Google Rise Award and Finalist Award for the MIT Innovate for Refugees competition for our work.

    This past year we also launched Re:Coded Labs, a digital agency for purpose driven organizations staffed by some of our top graduates. A portion of profits from Re:Coded Labs is reinvested back into the mission of Re:Coded, ensuring our model comes full-circle.


    If you want to lead communications for a fast-paced tech for good organization changing the narrative about the future of work in conflict affected and fragile states, this role is perfect for you. We’re looking for a self-starter with the capacity to work across multiple areas of communication: social media, graphic design and storytelling. An ability to write (pitches, thought pieces, website content, tweets, you name it) excellently and prolifically is essential.

    Our culture is passionate, empowering and transparent. We are open to candidates from different sectors and members of our team have come to us from a diverse range of industries, from start-ups to private sector to government. We value ability and willingness to learn over years of experience.



    • Manage Re:Coded’s online and social media presence by updating, revising and developing website resources and by developing copy and digital content for its social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin and Medium).

    • Help to develop and implement an effective communications strategy based on our target audience distinguishing between Re:Coded, Re:Coded House and various country programs.

    • Write, edit, and distribute content, including press releases, annual reports, newsletters, and other marketing material that communicates Re:Coded’s activities, products and services.

    • Develop written and digital content through interviews with alumni, current students and other stakeholders that highlight student success stories and/or learning practices used by Re:Coded.

    • Analyze the data analytics of social media campaigns and adjust future posts to increase engagement.

    • Develop and manage paid social and audience targeting on Facebook and Instagram.

    • Brainstorm new and creative marketing growth strategies and partnerships to grow our audience in new markets.

    • Help develop branding materials for the different areas of our business, including Re:Coded Labs.

    • Contribute to communications strategy, graphic design and branding for Re:Coded Labs projects.

    Media and PR

    • Establish and maintain effective relationships with journalists, and maintain a media database.

    • Seek opportunities to enhance the reputation of Re:Coded’s brand, and coordinate publicity events as required.

    • Help plan, launch and design digital fundraising campaigns for Re:Coded.

    Bonus skills (not essential)

    • Experience using the Adobe Creative Suite.

    • Experience with Cameras (either still or video format)


    • Ideally 3+ years of experience in a top private sector organization or startup.

    • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills. Fluency in English is required with commands of Turkish, or Arabic a major advantage.

    • Strong understanding of multicultural, multi-city, multi-lingual comms experience (posting in multiple languages from a different city).

    • A strong project manager, organized, goal-oriented. Must be a highly organized self-starter, able to work under pressure in a fast-paced environment with grace and good judgment, effectively managing multiple competing priorities and proactively following through with plans and tasks.

    • Extensive experience with social media, and online marketing techniques and effective integrated marketing approaches in support of strategic objectives (e.g. building brand awareness with key target audiences).

    • Demonstrated experience in the development and implementation of strategic plans and communication materials, (e.g. key messages, general statements, question and answer scenarios, news releases, fact sheets, correspondence for constituents and stakeholders, etc.).
