Co-Founder Roles/Jobs

Positions at WinWisely

Urgent: Co-Founders for Tech Team (Part Time OK)

Tech Cofounders wanted for WinWIsely.org, a web-based mobile-friendly app that 14 top organizers say they would love to have right now

What  We Are:

WinWisely.org is an open-source, nonprofit, and free to activists mobile-friendly app in development (currently with a clickable demo, wireframe, most user stories) that was created to answer the mother of all questions:

How can progressive organizations and electoral campaigns in the next few months recruit, commit, and support/reward massively larger numbers of volunteers willing to do much bigger impact tasks to save the planet and democracy before it's too late?

To see our answer and find out more, first watch this 3 minute animation on the concept of Crowdacting (albeit applied to a more conservative strategy), and after that, go to WinWisely.org for our one-pager and reviews from over 14 top organizers and then ask to view our 10-minute demo.

You can check out our one-pager for more information, along with reviews from 14 top organizers as well as IT Pros on the WinWisely.org homepage.
