ORGANIZATION: CIVIC WORKS

Image_202112271714

Remote work is an essential opportunity especially in troubled areas. What's Cookin' offers opportunities for aspiring developers to hone their skills with a team, earning equity and in some cases small stipends to support their work.

Several young women and men are trying to level up their coding skills by tackling projects and need mentors to help them learn how to get quickly unstuck and move forward, as well as some guideance on learning languages. Work is in Typescript, Python, and some Rust.

The mentor will join the team slack group and be available to your mentee async, as well as setting up a time convenient for both of you to check in once a week for the first month. We ask that mentors make at least a one-month commitment to have 4 weekly meetings and some async availability.

The projects themselves are intended to leverage technology to empower people.

The projects that we are working on are cutting edge decentralized tech that empowers workers to own their own reputation, tools for transparency and work-weighted governance (with and without wallets), and empowering consumers to make sustainable choices systematically.

See http://cooperation.org for links to our currently active projects, or browse some of the code at https://github.com/Cooperation-org.

We have some really cool and experienced global devs already on the team, and a great group of young coders in Egypt, Kenya, Myanmar and elsewhere ready to get to the next level.

(It's also possible that you could be involved in the next grant proposal and/or pitch in which case we would have funds to offer, but currently this is a volunteer position. We do write great recommendations as well)

Mission Statement

We created civ.works as a platform for all of us to work together to overcome the corrupting influence of money in politics. Together we can address bad policy, legislation and to hold all of our elected officials accountable. For democracy to work -our government must represent "We the People". civ.works: Together. We can.

Description

civ.works is a privacy protected social platform built for meaningful civic action.

The concept of civ.works is to finally provide a societal machine to stand up against something created nearly 50 years ago -and begin the process of empowering citizens again. We are building a platform together -against an incredibly mature and well-funded machine. Your volunteer efforts will be helping us collectively build something powerful and important.
