HackJLM, a WeWork Creator Award winning project to help nonprofits with technology on an ongoing basis, is seeking a project manager.

We seek productivity hackers who love apps and products, and get a kick out of helping others, as you build your own reputation, network and product portfolio. You must be comfortable managing projects and organizing events, as well as proficient enough with the relevant apps to teach a nonprofit how to use them (and qualify other volunteers to do the same).

Responsibilities:

  • Meet with nonprofits to understand their tech needs.
  • Research and test tech products relevant to nonprofits.
  • Build a movement of techie volunteers, with expertise in each product category.
  • Match between experts and nonprofits on a monthly basis.
  • Organize weekly events and larger monthly “helpnights”.

Requirements:

  • Based in Jerusalem,
  • Advantage: Connected to large network of relevant experts in Jerusalem.
  • Openness to play and learn new apps to a level of being able to teach others – required.
  • Advantage: proficient or familiar with productivity apps and organizational tools. Examples: Landing Pages, Website Builders (WordPress, Wix, Webflow, Squarespace), CRMs (Salesforce, Hubspot), Mailing (Mailchimp, Gsuite etc.), Adwords, Facebook, Project Management Apps (Asana, Trello), and more.
  • Tech and coding / website building background – advantage.
  • Product design background or startup experience – advantage.

HackJLM was established in 2017 by a group of leading tech and nonprofit community organizations in Jerusalem. Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop to help nonprofits with tech on an ongoing basis, and make it a no-brainer for any nonprofit to access the apps and tech tools they need to grow their impact and save resources. We do this by building a movement of volunteers from the local tech and nonprofit community researching the best technology, finding ways to make the apps affordable for nonprofits, and organizing weekly and monthly events to install the technologies together with the nonprofits and train them on how to use it. Later in 2018 HackJLM will launch a studio to develop our own original open-source products for the global nonprofit community.

Part Time, in Jerusalem. Flexibility in time and location. (Work from anywhere 2 out of 3 days. Choose one evening for “helpnights” 7-11pm.) Free Workspace. Free access to software.
