Work at STF

The Sovereign Tech Fund is a new organization pioneering in its field, pursuing an ambitious mission with societal value. We are interested in your ideas and offer all team members the opportunity to shape and develop the organization.

Who we are

The Sovereign Tech Fund's mission is to strengthen digital infrastructure in the public interest. Our goal is to promote security, innovation and competitiveness and to create a stable digital foundation for participation and democracy. To this end, we invest in the open source ecosystem with a focus on resilience and technological diversity and the aim of achieving digital sovereignty and sustainable digital services in the public interest.

As a “start-up” in the Federal Agency for Disruptive Innovation, we started the Sovereign Tech Fund in September 2022. This year, we will become an independent entity, and as such, we are looking for talented individuals to join our team and help establish the new organization.
