We are currently looking to add members to our team. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a promising new social enterprise. Please BRING YOUR RESUME! The ideal candidates are energetic problem-solvers, networkers, big-picture thinkers, and experts at execution.
Current opportunities allow qualified candidates to demonstrate deep involvement without the risk. At the moment, we only need ONE NIGHT PER WEEK of your time as we lock down our strategy, develop processes, and perform the basic "blocking and tackling" required to get a venture off the ground.
