ORGANIZATION: KeelWorks Foundation

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 22 people are interested

The KeelWorks foundation is developing training, internal communication, social media, and web marketing. We have many demands for software developers: front-end, back-end, and database development. We have more volunteers than we can manage, though not more than we can use. We need to establish program standards and procedures and perhaps quality criteria. The person in this role will establish programming standards, determine the best technologies to use on projects, assign programmers, recognize with a developer needs another hand (they always want to do everything alone), and advise programmers when needed.

The person for this job might be a retiring software engineer or an experience software engineer wishing to advance to management. If you feel up to this challenge, we could use your help.

This position is unpaid, largely asynchronous, and virtual. Participating with the foundation allows participants to add experience to their resume as if it were a job. We help with resumes and portfolios for those desiring this help.

Mission Statement

To support a better world with better citizens by fostering learning competence, emotional intelligence, and networked intelligence. KeelWorks especially wishes to bring greater participation to the economically disadvantaged across the globe. We are building a system to support upward mobility.

Description

We are a charitable non-profit virtual foundation. Founded in 2009, we've worked with over 300 graduate students and past students helping them bridge the gap from education to gainful employment while helping KeelWorks build a structure for people needing change. Our goal is to be the equalizer, bringing those on the outside looking in to the inside. Our goal is to end poverty across the world, changing one life at a time. Our special approach involves grouping people for mutual support, teaching core competencies, and supporting goals with objective progress metrics and team accountability, We hope to build a structure for change that can be replicated hundreds and thousands of times. We don't give participants fish, but hope to teach them to fish for themselves.
