    Governance Value #4 - volunteer

  • welcome to The work

    only super-efforts count

    Volunteer

    This project is run entirely by volunteers (we currently have no paid staff).

     

    If you would like to help the cause by contributing your time and skills you can apply to collaborate with us remotely or locally.

     

    Volunteers will be working with and communicating directly with our Boston team. Level of participation and commitment is for each of our volunteers to decide what they are able to do.

    Potential applicants will be evaluated according to skill, motivation, and cultural alignment. To give your application the best chance of being selected, make sure to follow the instructions carefully, and completely.

    co-founders

    Volunteers that prove good company will be offered an opportunity to join the Citizen's Cafe team as a founding member. Volunteers are evaluated for good company every three months. Equity stake will be discussed on an individual basis.

    There is 100% absolutely zero pressure to become an official co-founder. Bottom line is that without a team of volunteers getting together to build something great, the chance of building something which has the caliber to raise human consciousness on a global scale are fairly slim. If you have any relevant skills or experience that relate to our needs we outline below please don't hesitate to send us a note and introduce yourself!

    Decentralized

    We are building a decentralized organization from scratch and are actively seeking folks who can collaborate to help us build it by taking on a single project at a time and see it through. Volunteer for one or many projects. You choose how to apply your skills and the level of impact and influence you want to have in the company.

    • ANIMATORS | VIDEO EDITORS | VIDEOGRAPHERS | UAV OPERATORS - Video is the most consumed medium in the 21st century. Help us communicate with the world.
     
    • PHOTOGRAPHERS - A picture is worth a thousand words. Creating a new culture requires lots of new words. Help us create a new language.
     
    • GRAPHIC DESIGNERS | RESIDENT ARTISTS - Art is the creative expression of the human soul and is the source of human culture. Help us express a culture of compassion, cooperation, and creation.
     
    • PROGRAMMERS AND DEVELOPERS | BLOCKCHAIN TECH | DEV OPS - We are remixing the way the world works with our technology. Engineering a more compassionate, cooperative, creative, and civically empowered world. Back-end and front-end web developers and native app developers needed for work on blockchain, cryptocurrency, communication, information systems, and applications. Expected to be knowledgeable and fluent with modern web development technologies.
     
    • PRODUCT UX DESIGNERS - User experience and design specialists needed to bring a civic empowerment platform and associated applications to the masses. We are developing empowerment technology which integrates science with the spirit of mankind and must overcome unique design challenges to provide the proper user experience.
     
    • PRODUCT OWNER - Be the voice of the customer, relentlessly seek to understand what our users' needs, wants, and pain points are.

As part of developing a new social culture, we must inspire a robust attitude of civic empowerment, self development, evolution, and spiritual fulfillment to members of our community and beyond. Society has long replaced with technology what we once depended on thriving communities to provide. Part of this role is healing and restorative in nature to help us learn what it means to work and be part of a community...what it means to truly break bread with one another, what it means to be part of a company. Please lend us your insights and expertise.
     
    • FUNDRAISERS - "Cash rules everything around me", wise men once said. If you have experience raising funds - either startup capital, charity donations, or grant writing - we need to hear from you!
