Student Workers for Environmental Dashboard

The Environmental Dashboard (ED) project is seeking qualified student applicants to fill two distinct positions described below that require a variety of communication, editing and computer science skills. Students accepted can be paid or receive academic credit for their work during the semester. Environmental Dashboard is a communication technology developed in Oberlin and now being implemented in other communities that combines public display of resource use and environmental quality through entire communities with photographs and messages drawn from community interviews (www.environmentaldashboard.org). The goal of these linked components is to empower thought and action that strengthen community, sustainability and resilience. As described below, individual fellows will focus on distinct areas of the project -- we are looking to add new members to a highly collaborative team. The two positions require very distinct skills and responsibilities -- don’t be put off if some of these require skills you don’t have or don’t interest you.

1) Software Developer: We are searching for students with experience in procedural or object-oriented programming (OOP) and databases for collaborative work on a number of web application projects. The person selected will implement and modify various components of an existing OOP codebase primarily programmed in PHP but which also utilizes SQL, XML, Javascript, and an array of other front-end technologies, though previous experience in these technologies is not required. Favorable applicant qualities include knowledge of software engineering (architecture), MVC/MVC-like patterns, and domain modelling. All programmers, especially those willing to learn and navigate a great deal of OOP and enterprise application architecture, are encouraged to apply.

2) Community Voices and Educational Content Manager: The Community Voices component of the ED project leverages social psychology to combine images and words to celebrate thought and action that move communities towards sustainability. Photographs and text gathered from interviews with community members emphasize neighbors, children, nature, community service, social justice, heritage and local economic development. The fellow working on this component will manage a database of photographs and text, solicit and develop new content, conduct interviews, edit articles and participate in research to assess the impact. The fellow will also assist in editing and managing educational content developed by and for teachers who are using Environmental Dashboard in K-12 curriculum. Qualifications include: a high level of responsibility and initiative; strong organizational skills; a high level of comfort engaging with the public; strong interview and editing skills; and experience working in the Oberlin community. Photographic skills are a plus.
