Various Positions, Amp

The following 3 positions are open at the recently released tech startup called Amp, which is like Yelp for sustainability resources. Our mission is to organize the best links, media and documents for the students, intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs driving business in the way of social and environmental progress. Our vision is to become the largest peer-reviewed sustainability directory in the world. You can check out our pitch video here.

Technical co-founder
We currently have two co-founders – one with an IT project management background (John Lehnert), and one with a market research and business development background (Sarah McKinney). We’re seeking a technical co-founder to join our team who is passionate about social impact, a skilled coder, a solid communicator, and someone who has a strong desire to contribute to the company’s ongoing strategy. We’re prepared to offer equity, and are open to a part-time situation to begin with while we continue to gain traction with the understanding being that it would become full-time gig when things take off. We’re based in Santa Monica, and would love to work with someone locally but that is not required.
The core technologies used to develop Amp’s site are: PHP 5.4+, CAKE 2.0, MySQL5.1+, jQuery (Rate-it & Tag-it), HTML5, CSS3 and GIT. The individual we’re looking for must have experience with PHP, CAKE Framework and Amazon Web Services. Having NoSQL experience would be a plus.
Community Engagement Intern
We are seeking an intern who is able to help us keep up with the pace of our user growth for approximately 10 hours/week. This person must be passionate about sustainability and enjoy tracking new resources in the space (e.g., events, websites, reports, companies, etc.). You will be responsible for staying on top of new resources to add to Amp’s directory, editing and approving resources that are submitted by other users, and leveraging social media to drive traffic to the site and increase engagement (i.e., ratings & reviews). Being very savvy with social media is important, as is having a positive attitude, being a self-starter, and having a dependable work ethic. We’re based in Santa Monica, but this position can be done remotely with regular email and phone correspondence expected.
College Outreach Intern
We are looking for an intern to help us manage outreach efforts to various universities and student networks focused on sustainability for approximately 10 hours/week. Students are constantly searching for information and resources, and creating content they could either sell through our PDF exchange or download, building upon learning instead of duplicating it. You will be responsible for going through our growing spreadsheet of contacts, reaching out to new contacts, and getting creative with ways to engage the various student populations. It’s important that this individual be passionate about sustainability, and be an outgoing go-getter that believes in Amp’s mission and feels genuinely excited to help spread the word. Solid communication skills and dependable work ethic are a must. We’re based in Santa Monica, but this position can be done remotely with regular email and phone correspondence expected.
