- You will respond to emails and phone calls with clients and answer questions about how to best use their website and database software to manage their non-profit’s needs.

A strong candidate will also have some of these skills and interests:

We believe that current systems of power disproportionately hurt the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and LGBTQ people. This is especially true in the field of technology. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
