Both roles will enhance our capacity to advance digital rights and human rights across the globe. We hope you, or someone you know, is the right fit.

Who we are

Access Now is an international human rights organization that defends and extends the digital rights of users at risk around the world. By combining innovative policy, global advocacy, and direct technical support, we fight for open and secure communications for all.

We are currently a team of 40, with local staff in more than 9 locations around the world — Berlin, Brussels, Cordoba, Delhi, London, Manila, New York, San Jose, Tunis, and Washington D.C. We maintain four legally incorporated entities — Belgium, Costa Rica, Tunisia, and the United States — with our Tech, Advocacy, Policy, Granting, and Operations teams distributed across all regions.

Our aim is to empower and influence individuals, decision-makers, and stakeholders across the globe to ensure that the internet remains a platform for the exercise of our fundamental human rights, such as the rights to privacy, free expression, freedom of assembly, and association.
