About Autistica 

Autistica is the UK's leading autism research and campaigning charity. Our vision is a world where every autistic person lives a happy, healthy, long life.

Our mission is to enable breakthroughs that make that happen by funding research, shaping policy and working with autistic people to make more of a difference.

Why we’re growing

In 2021, Autistica launched an ambitious set of 2030 Goals to dramatically improve the lives of autistic people across the UK and beyond. To achieve these goals we identify problems, find solutions, then advise and influence key partners who can implement change. To succeed and accelerate our opportunity to deliver impact, we need to expand our team. This role is pivotal in supporting the whole team, by developing and delivering technology-enabled solutions for our 2030 goals flagship projects, so that we can demonstrate impact and secure the partnerships, funding and government buy-in that is needed to achieve our mission.
