Helpful to have some IT background, but more than anything an interest in helping users find healthier choices when on the road and un-aware of the options in the area.  It is a free app that launched four years ago and we are currently developing enhancements to functionality and cleaned up fresh data.

Roughly 6-10 hours a week working remotely with direction and help via email and phone. There is great flexibility as to when the work is done.  We’ll have a weekly delivery of clean data, so students can work on their own schedule.

There is no pay or stipend budget at this time, other than our sincere gratitude, but there is opportunity for a future paid job in maintaining the app after re-launch.  The app is a free download, but we intend to attach a sponsor which would provide us with a budget to make hires in the future.

There is an opportunity to stay on after V2 is launched to help promote among student community, to help vet user-generated suggestions, and generally keep the app fresh and current.
If interested, please contact: via email.
