We’re in the process of re-launching Fossbox’ website and some new services and we’re looking for people who’d like to get involved in steering Fossbox as we branch out into new areas. Many people know us as non-profit open-source advocates but we’ve been doing more and more work around designing appropriate open technologies for communities. So we’re looking for people who’re interested and active in East London communities as well as people who already have an interest in open tech.
You don’t need to be at all ‘techie’ – just interested in the digital world and averagely computer-literate. Skills such as networking, fundraising, organisational development, marketing etc – and, of course, open tech – are very handy but we love enthusiasm too.
The EC meets quarterly (sometimes more often if there’s a lot going on) and the EC steers our activities and keep us on-mission. That’s the minimum commitment (and much appreciated) but we also welcome as much hands-on involvement as you want to contribute. If you have ideas about social innovation, gender and tech, and/or live in East London and have ideas about how open technologies could benefit your local community — or just want to join in, have a look at our main website or contact us for more information. We don’t have a complicated recruitment process, just email us with a CV or for more info.
