Seeking talented developer for Tulane social innovation evaluation tool

July 31, 2011 0 Comment

Citizen Circles is working with Tulane’s Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching – Social Innovation to build a tool to help students create their own track records of their talents as changemakers – including talents like empathy, creativity, and collaboration which are often poorly represented on resumes and transcripts.

The basic tool will be piloted early this year, primarily as a learning evaluation tool at first.  Later this year, the tool will be expanded with additional features to help changemakers reflect more deeply on their experience, earn changemaker credentials (badges), and get matched with companies that want to hire talented changemakers.

We are recruiting a team member to help deliver this first phase of work in August and September.  The ideal candidate is:

  • Strong in either Django/Python (preferred) or Ruby on Rails,
  • Strong in javascript, and,
  • Excited by the mission of helping changemakers, and the institutions and companies that want to hire them, recognize talents that matter in this century, like working well in teams and creativity.
  • This project has strong ties with P2PU, so depending on your skillset, it may be built as fork of the existing code of the Lernanta project, itself a fork of Mozilla’s Batacuda project.  Familiarity with either is a plus, but not essential.

Compensation and timeline: $4,000 (USD) for phase 1 completion by September 30, 2011.
