Help us create a resilient world

What to expect

We are a small and evolving team. We need self-starters who can take responsibility for an area of work, define goals, and deliver results all while working in a highly-collaborative environment.

Want to help? Get in touch!

Want to help but don’t see the right opportunity for you? Get in touch! Just because it isn’t listed, doesn’t mean we don’t need it!

Our focus

Expect to ground your efforts in our Wildfire Project. That’s what’s driving our organizational growth and learning right now.

Your commitment

We hope that you will want to continue to work with us, but understand if you need to move on when your part of the project is done. To make that uncomplicated, expect to spend time deciding what “done” means up front.

Working together

Most of our collaboration is online. We have a weekly team check-in to hold ourselves accountable, and keep ourselves motivated with regular co-working sessions. We also like to give everyone has a designated “project buddy” to bounce ideas off of.
