21 people are interested
In the past year, anti-Asian and anti-AAPI hate crimes have risen by over 150%, along with high profile hate incidents that have captured the national attention. We believe that the path to stopping hatred and discrimination in its tracks starts at the ballot box, so we're challenging everyone to share our message of voter registration with 8 people in 8 days.
To make this happen, we're recruiting dedicated volunteers from across the nation to promote our message and grow our organization, both online and in-person. We are looking for volunteers who are passionate, hard-working, and excited about 8by8 and the #StopAsianHate movement. Regardless of role, all volunteers will receive:
- Signed community service hours
- A reference for future work or volunteer opportunities
- Hands-on experience and the opportunity for advancement in an area of their choosing
Software Engineering Team
We are looking for software engineering volunteers to join our technical team and help us develop and improve upon the #8by8 challenge web app (see attached video). This app will allow users to invite their friends to register to vote, and earn rewards when 8 of their friends do so in 8 days, redeemable at Asian-owned restaurants.
Volunteers will work with the UX/UI team and professional industry mentors to build on our existing app concept. Front-end (React or similar), web app development, or back-end (AWS or Google Cloud) experience is a plus.
This role will provide great work experience + networking opportunities. Please feel free to attach a resume/cover letter if you have one. We hope to see you on the team!
