Protecting the Amazon rainforest by valuing its superfoods


Immediate help needed!

Our exciting new project Sustainable Food Basket needs a website to show the 4 endangered eco-systems of Brazil and the 4 baskets of food, one for each region with sustainable products from Brazil’s biodiversity, as well as the positive impact it will generate in climate change, by reducing deforestation and saving kids from malnutrition. This website will be crucial to inspire the Brazilian population to adopt new eating habits as well as to attract funding from global sponsors. This project participated at the Food Expo in Milan and now we plan to continue exhibiting it through important museums, so the website needs to look slick and be easy to navigate. We are seeking an intern with web building experience to create an aesthetically-pleasing version built through GoDaddy. Coding experience is NOT NECESSARY, but may be helpful. You will be working directly with the Founder/ Project Director and the ability to digest information and translate it while creating the end product is essential. The ideal candidate has initiative to ask questions and the ability to work independently. Though allowed much creative freedom of vision, understanding the overall goals of the project is essential. In addition to web site design/construction, the ideal candidate would also have experience building social media graphics as well. Professional design experience is not necessary, but an eye for balance and visual appeal is truly important. Knowledge of the differing size requirements for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the ability to adjust visuals accordingly is a necessity.

As Social Media Manager, you will create and schedule posts for our Twitter and Facebook pages with any relevant hashtags related to our objectives. Manage the page for mentions, favorites, retweets and messages, responding to any engagement, thanking people for following, etc. Follow and engage with top influencers and celebrities relevant to our scope. We will collaborate with you to brainstorm on our social strategy and optimize our social profiles and cover images.

A passion for Sustainable Development, food and Brazil is a big plus. The website will be in English and Brazilian Portuguese, so if the candidate speaks Portuguese that’s even better, but not mandatory.

Get real experience in non-profit work and receive benefits of letters of recommendation, LinkedIn endorsement, internship hours, and a credit as web designer.
