Digital Assets + Comms Coordinator (student position)

What is Disaster Lab? Disaster Lab is housed in the College of Engineering at UC Berkeley. It’s designed to carry out scientific and transparent demonstrations and evaluations of emerging science and technology innovations with active first responders, researchers, and industry experts. We focus on equity-centered solutions that provide iterative and transformative change for communities in the United States and across the world.

What do we need help with? Disaster Lab collaborates with Cal Fire, Marin Fire Services, a host of other government agencies, as well as labs and start-ups coming out of academia. As we carry out our mission of bringing next-gen technology to disaster detection, response, and mitigation to the field – we often fail to publish and share the amazing work that we’re doing in partnership with our collaborators. We’re looking for an ambitious tech-loving student that can publish and keep the Disaster Lab website up to date, aid us in project management through the use of tools like Notion, Trello, and the Google Suite and lastly ensure that key communication with potential partners doesn’t fall through the cracks.

If you like the idea of working in a start-up-esqe environment, love learning new skills, and tackling big problems. Please apply! This is a part-time position and you’ll only be asked to work the hours that you agree to. We’re looking to hire a student and are happy to mentor/teach you the skills you need to be successful in this position and any position you may take on in the future.

Huge bonus if you’re a design nerd, know how to use Figma, and have experience building websites in WordPress (BeaverBuilder).
