Would your project or organisation benefit from our technical expertise? Maybe you have been meaning to build out your website? Finally finish that app? Get better support for your newsletters? We're here to help. Our community of volunteer designers, developers and general technologists are eager to get to work!
We are looking for 5-8 projects to be part of our pilot programme, aimed to provide radical organisations with hands-on technical support. We will work with the selected projects to understand their needs and constraints, design an initial approach to the problem and find them the (volunteer) developers and designers that can help make their projects a success.
Please read the section below about the type of projects we look to support and then send us an email containing the following:
1. Your organisation or project (max 200 words)
2. What you need help with: what problem would you like help with? Do you have a specific solution in mind? (max 200 words)
3. Why is your project or organisation radical (system-changing)? (max 200 words)
4. Who are working on this? (Feel free to share links to LinkedIn pages etc)
5. A link to your website
Please apply before June 2nd, 10pm GMT, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will contact you before June 17, 2019. Our programme starts in September 2019 and lasts as long as you need it to.
Radical Engineers supports organisations and projects with radical aims.
By radical we mean system-changing: faced with the threat of mass extinction, a warming globe and rising inequality, we cannot afford to merely fight symptoms, but have to instead radically rethink the economic and social systems that produce them.
For instance, in addition to removing waste from the oceans, how can we ensure waste never reaches our oceans in the first place? If you’re working on system-changing projects and are looking for technical support (in the broadest sense of the term), then we may be able to help!
We support organisations of all sizes, experience levels and types (e.g. NGO, charities, corporations).
If your organisation supports remote work, then so do we!
If you’re not sure you qualify, or have other questions, feel free to send us an email: email@example.com. Margreet & James are happy to tell you more!
