Work with Quilted!
Application Deadline: May 6th
Who are we?
Quilted is a worker-owned, cooperatively-managed company stitching together technology and social change. We take on work that challenges us to be more critical and insightful designers, engineers, and thinkers while remaining pragmatic and focused on adding real social value to our projects. Most of our projects are websites built with the Drupal content management framework. We provide services in visual design, user experience, content messaging, Drupal custom module development and theming, HTML/CSS, and strategic web consulting.
Why are we hiring?
We're excited for someone to join our Berkeley office full-time and contribute to our team doing project management, support, and training for our nonprofit, cooperative, and social justice clients. We need help managing large and small web development projects, as well as managing support and training requests.
Who are we looking for?
You are someone who values collaboration and hard work for social and economic justice movements. You are flexible, curious, accepting, but also willing to engage directly about what isn't working for you. You want to dig in: get familiar with the dynamics of our small business, develop our democratic business model, and participate in consensus decision-making and financial planning. Most importantly, you're interested in becoming a worker-owner and joining us long-term.
We're looking for you to be a collaborator, to dream up crazy things with us, push us, and share your whole self with us. We're going to fight about stuff, but we'll laugh about it afterwards.
We're open to hiring someone with a mix of experience. The most important thing is finding a good fit, but experience in these areas is helpful:
- Managing technology development projects
- Working in co-operatives and collective decision making
- Building or designing web projects (especially using Drupal)
- Technology training
- Tech support or customer service
- Content strategy
We hate how most job calls don't tell you all sorts of things. Here are some assumptions we have for an applicant:
- Fluency in English
- Comfort communicating with clients over email, conference calls, and Skype
- Fluency working with computers
- Has a cellphone (iPhone preferred because we have iPhones and our systems work with them well)
- Heads up: Sadly, our office is up a flight of stairs and has no elevator access.
- Available and accessible over the phone when shit hits the fan
Why should you apply?
We do awesome work for awesome people. You get fair pay and great benefits. Quilted provides a salary of $40,000 annually. Our benefits include Anthem Blue Cross PPO health insurance, vision insurance, dental insurance, and mental health reimbursements. A Mac laptop will be provided for work, unless you have one that you want to use. In addition, both workers and worker-owners get a share of profit at the end of the year.
If you’re interested, please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Women, people of color, and LGBTQ people are strongly encouraged to apply.
