At OddBird, We:
This isn’t a cubicle job with dental, a 401k, and paid vacation. We’re also not a start-up expecting you to work nights and weekends towards future equity. This is a contract job with long term potential, a good hourly rate, a collective vision, and a lot of flexibility. We work together to find clients, and we work together to build them the best tools we can. When there’s work to be done, we all do what we can, and we get paid for our time.
We’re looking for 15 to 20 billable hours per week to start, with potential for more.
Note that contract hours & rates don’t map cleanly to a 40hr work week. Our most active members rarely bill more than 30 hours in a week. Both our external and internal rates (what we charge clients, and what we pay ourselves) are set collaboratively as a team, and change over time.
Learn more about our team structure – what we’re offering, and what we expect from you – in our full OddBirding Guide.
Let’s talk! Tell us about yourself and your work. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to start the conversation.
Candidates who are selected by the staff for consideration will first have a screening with our Project Manager (15-30 minutes).
Final candidates will then get to meet with the whole team for a roundtable discussion and to answer any questions you might have for us (1 hour).
Issues of diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and social-involvement have been part of our work from the beginning. We are careful about the jobs we take, and always consider the impact of a product or feature on the most marginalized people. Since we began hiring additional team-members, we've implemented a code of conduct (oddbird.net/conduct/), and we prioritize under-represented communities in our outreach and hiring process. We also use a collective decision-making structure, with total pay transparency, flexible schedules, and consistent rates across the entire team. We hope to continue learning and improving, holding ourselves to higher standards, and having difficult conversations when necessary.
