Climate Neutral is looking for people who believe in our mission and would like to lend their talents to help us grow in these strange and unfortunately difficult times. As we continue to fundraise actively, we aim to keep our momentum going by engaging people to work on smaller projects on a pro bono/contract basis.
Here's a list of our priorities. Give us a shout if you are interested in helping and have the skills required to do a knock-out job.
We have a series of projects that require digging up technical data and info and using it to tell our story. It would primarily serve our consumer-facing content. If you like climate, energy, and greenhouse gas data, love spreadsheets and translating numbers into charts and takeaways, you'll get a kick out of this work. Some of our needs would support the development of our editorial content, such as articles, blog posts, and social media fodder. We also need support with continued development of our footprinting tool, the BEE. This work would not require programming or graphic design, since that could be done under a separate effort.
Key skills: strong quantitative chops and spreadsheet wizardry, plus a wicked ability to do research, especially on climate and energy topics
Maybe not the most poetic label, but it says what we need. We have an idea for an interesting infographic that we think would be really exciting to give to our companies and our consumers. The trouble is, we don't know how to build one that is interactive. It would be simple, pretty, clickable, and flexible, meaning it could load on a web browser or mobile device, and parts of it could be repurposed into smaller formats that we might drop onto Twitter or Instagram. And our first idea will no doubt lead to a second, and a third, and a fourth...
Key skills: graphic design, visualization, web development (using Webflow)
It's a ton of work to track our brands through the certification process. It requires a lot of document and data collection, back-and-forth, content management, nudging...none of which is fun to do with email and spreadsheets. We envision a certified company portal that tracks the process end-to-end, with the ability to capture information at key steps along the way, report (internally) on the status of our companies in the process, and generally make our process more organized.
Key skills: web development (using Webflow), project management, workflow development
We have loads of company contact information, footprint information, certification data, and other bits and pieces we need to track as our small team works with large numbers of brands. We use Salesforce to track it all now, but our configuration is far from perfect, and we could use some help from a Salesforce wizard setting up a few more forms, reconfiguring records, that sort of thing.
Key skills: Salesforce administration
We want to add videos to our content library but don't have the animation and editing skills. Our videos will be short, with a combination of live action and animation, and will stick to our core visual identity.
Key skills: video production, animation, scripting
