San Francisco Living Wage Coalition

The Living Wage Coalition has a number of openings for WordPress development, Social Media specialist, and Web App and Small Office security guru.

The Living Wage Coalition is a non-profit that lobbies the Board of Supervisors and others at City Hall to increase the local minimum wage citywide. The main WordPress position will involve making new posts, maintaining the site, adding or updating widgets, and adding video and other new functionality.

They have recently launched a new site and a new social media campaign and need someone to use google analytics and other tools to drive traffic to the site.

They need a new security policy to address increased intern participation. Their server needs a scan and there are still some WordPress related security tasks to do.

If you are especially interested in serving the community through activism, want to network with other college students or like working with non-profits contact Sam!

Tutors Needed for CNIT Classes
