Job Description

Crowdsourcing Sustainability is a start-up non-profit that has 100,000+ people from 100+ countries reading our sustainability newsletters. Our global team is made up of 6 amazing interns and myself right now :)

Our website (built on Wordpress/Elegant Themes) needs an upgrade. 

We need someone to help revamp the Crowdsourcing Sustainability website with an eye for easy and useful user experiences, aesthetics, and staying true to our mission. 

Key website goals:

  • Help people quickly understand what Crowdsourcing Sustainability is all about.
  • Encourage folks to sign up for the newsletter and join the community.
  • Help them easily find what they're looking for in terms of content, effective climate actions to take, etc.

Previous UX/UI experience in some form is required. We do have a part-time web developer right now, but she may be leaving soon so that skillset is also a big plus.

The north star of Crowdsourcing Sustainability is really asking the questions: "How can we help to reverse warming faster? How can we better inspire/empower/connect people to level up their impact? How can we grow the community?" So if you have any additional ideas for a project to that end, I'll be all ears.

About you:

The ideal candidate will be passionate about tackling the climate crisis, have a desire to learn and grow, is ready to roll up their sleeves, and is a genuine, good person. Strong communication skills and someone who's looking for a start-up atmosphere to learn and do a lot are a plus.

To be up-front, this is not a paid position. I wish I could pay you! But we're a new non-profit and I can't even pay myself yet (getting closer every day though!)

Looking forward to speaking with you and seeing if this is a good fit!
