ORGANIZATION: OPERATION - SAFE ESCAPE

Image_202103150840

Operation Safe Escape is a 501c3 nonprofit volunteer-run organization dedicated to combating domestic violence by helping people escape their dangerous situations and strengthening partnerships with domestic violence shelters, safe houses, advocacy organizations, and other key groups. As a secondary mission, OSE assists those impacted by stalking, harassment, and human trafficking.

OSE is looking for iOS and Android app developers to help create an app intended to help domestic violence shelters and safe houses manage their availability and services offered. This app will allow social workers, hospitals, and public safety to search for services in certain areas and contact the location to arrange care.

This app will be a game-changer, and nothing like it currently exists. It will save overworked social workers and other helpers hours of time, and will reduce the time it takes to get DV survivors to a safe place.

What we’re looking for:

  • A passionate do-gooder. Our organization consists entirely of folks who offer up their time & effort to the betterment of others so we’d like more of the same.
  • Experience with app development or UI/UX desig

What the role looks like:

  • Working independently or with a team to develop app code for either iOS, Android, or both
  • Working closely with stakeholders to determine and develop features

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to make a difference in the lives of your fellow human beings. (You may not be able to change the whole world, but you can help change the whole world for 1 person)  
  • A unique opportunity to directly help people escape abuse and stay safe, and to see the impact of your work
  • Experience in a non-profit organization or an organization’s social good component ( e.g. Apple’s "Environment, Policy, and Social Initiatives" , Inclusion & Diversity teams, ...)
  • Experience with privacy considerations and exposure to technical security concepts
  • A turnkey professional network , including professional networking opportunities with a wide array of experts in information security, technology, public safety, community advocacy, policy, & more professions.  
  • Opportunities for career growth & lateral career transitions
  • Access to a number of free or steeply discounted training opportunities & platforms.
  • A flexible schedule. We understand occupational & family commitments, as we all do this work pro-bono in addition to our own day jobs & time with family. If you need to take a step back, we are here to support you until such time you are able to continue working with OSE.
  • The excitement of building something from the ground up. While OSE has been around for quite some time , we’re experiencing a major growth phase

Experience working with domestic violence or social service organization is highly desired.
