bees love cooperation

We started a co-op

And here’s why

My personal story

For many of us, when we think about the kind of work we want to do and how we want to do it, it becomes hard to imagine a “job” that matches our ideals. I’ve been at this crossroads numerous times: keep doing the work you love but have no financial security…or get some financial security and do work that doesn’t serve your purpose. The latter usually forces you into a dysfunctional workplace with limited flexibility, rendering you unable to live a healthy life.

We’re looking for a rad junior developer!

Our cooperative is looking for candidates for junior developers.

Candidates should have interest in leveling up their engineering skills and/or breaking into the world of code and web development. They will be working remotely (or potentially in-person) with a front end developer in Brooklyn and a designer/strategist in Denver. Together we have nearly 30 years of experience in our field with a focus on radical social justice and open source technologies.

Because we’re still getting started, they could expect work to be hourly on an as-needed basis…or they could bring in their own projects/clients into the fold. Candidates would collaborate directly with the rest of the coop on projects. Their responsibilities will be based on their current skills and their passions for leveling up their knowledge.

Details such as work expectations and pay will be negotiated with the applicants.
