We are a community-driven organization and as such the Online Community Manager role interacts with the community online and in-person. The community of Navigator app users guide the development and use of resources and tools. It is a network-driven resource hub intended to support community-driven food system practitioners who set priorities and steward solutions based on their lived experiences. We are immersed in our community. This is a hybrid role: the team currently comes into the office once a week and periodically hosts and engages in in-person events in the Greater Chicago area. We are a small, start-up organization; all team members are integral to the direction and success of reaching our communities’ goals.

The project seeks a full-time online community manager, reporting to the Project Executive Director, to co-create and execute the strategy for our digital knowledge sharing and collaboration app with the Community Engagement team and our community users in achieving our collective food justice goals. You’ll also be working with the team’s Full Stack Developer on new features and enhancements to existing functionality. This role does not have any direct reports.
