Project Imo

Image_202101062049

Remember all those pulp stories where the hero jumped on a truck, traversed the desert and boarded a plane as the props spun into the cold clouds. They jumped out as they donned the parachute and landed on a cargo freighter carrying ancient artifacts off to an evil collector. Remember those stories?

Remember them?!??! How dare we insult you? Heck, the producers called you to arrange all of the logistics of the filming!

Team Imo is currently looking for a dedicated volunteer to help with program and event logistics. The ideal teammate will have experience in handling multiple data streams from incongruent sources and the ability to merge all of that into a coherent logistical plan for Imo outings. From coordinating with program site hosts and arranging supply orders, this person will make sure Project Imo can run as smoothly as possible as our facilitators save the artifacts from the bad guys!

You'll be navigating the matrix-world but with backpacks and kayaks instead of 1's and 0's. Sound like you? Drop us a line!
