Position Title: Food Shift Development Associate/Manager (based on experience)*

Status: Non-exempt, Regular, Salaried 

Pay Rate: Commensurate with experience ($20,500 to $25,000 for half time). Bonuses may be considered

Hours: 20 hours/week (Half time)

Benefits: Regular EII Employee, pro-rated vacation/sick hours accrual

Location: 677 W Ranger Ave Alameda, CA, or remote as appropriate

Reports to: Food Shift Executive Director

*This position can be combined with the Food Shift Communications Associate/Manager (or other half- or part-time positions and responsibilities at Food Shift) to craft a role that amplifies your skills and interests. 

About Food Shift Food Shift is a non-profit social enterprise based in Alameda, CA and serving the broader Bay Area. We are developing and implementing collaborative models to reduce food waste, nourish our neighbors, and provide jobs. Food Shift takes care to examine and adopt the best, most relevant role for us to play in our community. Food Shift’s primary programs are The Food Shift Kitchen, a unique social enterprise that transforms wasted food into nourishing meals and job opportunities, and Operation Together, our food hub that builds food security in our local food ecosystem. In The Food Shift Kitchen, trainees who are overcoming employment discrimination assist with Food Shift operations, recovering surplus and cosmetically imperfect produce that would otherwise be wasted and transforming the wasted food into nutritious meals and food products that are distributed as food assistance and sold to local businesses to generate revenue for the program. In light of the pandemic, we established our COVID-19 relief initiative, Operation Together, to supply food to frontline food assistance organizations, ensuring that all of us in our community can access the delicious, nourishing food we need to live well. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) candidates and folks with lived experience of the issues our constituents navigate, including but not limited to food insecurity, houselessness, incarceration, and poverty. We are fiscally sponsored by Earth Island Institute (EII), and therefore, EII is the employer for all Food Shift staff. [Updated 2021-05-05]

Who we are

We are a small staff but a big team, bringing interns, volunteers, executives-in-residence, and advisors together at our table. Food Shifters connect to food through a range of experiences as chefs, servers, food writers, artists, farmers, home cooks, and eaters. Our flat organizational structure knits together our experiences and skills to strengthen the organization, and our cross-trained staff continually adjust to support one another. While our team members come from many backgrounds, we unite around our shared JEDI (justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion) values, which inform everything we do.

That’s why we seek a “cultural knit” rather than a “cultural fit” in our hiring process. While “fit” suggests a search for a predefined candidate, a set puzzle piece that fits into the organizational jigsaw puzzle, we, instead, look for a cultural knit, which invites our new team members to weave their unique experiences and skills into our fabric. By weaving a cultural knit, our team gains the resilience to tackle the root causes of food insecurity and climate change. We strive to build capacity in each other and the team so we can build a more resilient food system with our community. We believe solutions must be for the people, by the people, and with the people. 

Who we are looking for

The Development Associate/Manager is responsible for championing our fundraising and business development efforts (Associate or Manager title dependent on experience). You will report to the Executive Director and work closely with staff, partners, and volunteers to execute key fundraising and business development activities that support the organization’s sustainability and connections in the community. We view fundraising and business development as an integral part of our operation, and expect any fundraising activities to reflect the JEDI values of Food Shift. As such, we take a holistic view when evaluating candidates, who can apply their professional skills to different aspects of our operation, and apply their operational experience back into fundraising and business development. We believe deep, first-hand experience with our operation will provide stronger community-centric fundraising. We are seeking qualified candidates who identify with the descriptions below, with experiences and skills that will nourish an innovative start-up organization and contribute to our growing impact.



  • Inspired: Strong commitment to Food Shift’s mission and vision 


  • Detailed: Outstanding attention to detail and organizational skills; strong follow through and timely task completion 


  • Self-Starter: Ability to complete work with minimal supervision and meet deadlines; take initiative to make improvements to systems and processes wherever possible


  • Nimble: Ability to think critically and adapt in a flexible environment; proactive work ethic and ability to anticipate needs, prioritize, and take appropriate actions


  • Collaborative: Values working as a team, relationships, and giving and receiving honest feedback via nonviolent communication 


  • Words to Action: Donor outreach and grant-writing or equivalent experience; excellent oral and written communication skills with the ability to communicate our mission and impact to donors and the community


  • Technologically Skilled: Proficiency in Google Suite, Microsoft Suite; Salesforce and Canva design skills a plus 

 

You will be expected to 


  • Coordinate with funders to ensure all compliance and reporting requirements are met

  • Support with grant research, tracking, drafting, and reporting 

  • Strategize and provide first drafts on fundraising plans, grant applications, and other fundraising opportunities 

  • Support online fundraising and donor outreach

  • Cultivate and maintain donor/sponsor/funder relationships

  • Manage and build internship structure for assigned interns and volunteers

  • Support with event planning, outreach, logistics, and follow-up, broadly and specifically for business development and fundraising 

  • Provide back-up and support to Director and staff, as needed; take on other duties as assigned to address the changing needs of a small organization with a small staff (e.g., to be able to fill in for another staff member)

  • Represent Food Shift at events where appropriate 

  • Collaborate with Executive Director and Culinary Director to propose and develop revenue-generating programs

  • Physical requirements for cross-training with other programs, such as food recovery, social enterprise kitchen: Ability to stand, bend, stoop, sit, walk, twist and turn (reasonable accommodations will be made for staff with disability

  • Physical requirements for the core position: ability to use a computer, keyboard, and calculator. 

We recognize that excellence and potential are expressed differently for different people.

California magazine is seeking part-time interns to work on our award-winning quarterly print publication and general interest website starting in June 2021. Are you enthusiastic about getting coffee?! Running errands?! Doing senseless busy work for no pay that won’t help your career in the future?!

That’s great! But do it on your own time, because it won’t happen when you’re a California magazine intern.

Some might say we have a revolutionary perspective that an internship shouldn’t be a waste of time, that interns should do work that excites them, and that they should leave with clips and experience that will set them up for a career in journalism. And we’d like to think it works! Some of our past interns have gone on to write for such publications as the New York Times, L.A. Times, Mother Jones, Buzzfeed, Wired.com, and Nature.

That could be you someday. We want it to be you someday. 

California is an editorially independent general interest mag that covers the news, issues, discoveries, and people of the University of California, Berkeley. The print magazine is published four times a year with a readership of 95,000, and the website posts fresh news every week, including monthly episodes of our new podcast, The Edge.

As an intern, it’ll be your job to stay true to this mission whilst hunting down stories, juggling hectic deadlines, and otherwise writing your journalism-loving heart out!

WHAT YOU’LL DO:


  • Pitch, research and write stories for both the print and online mag

  • Interview sources, ask tough questions, be a bonafide professional reporter

  • Assist with research, scripting, and production of our podcast, The Edge

  • Go out into the field to find stories worth writing about

  • Post finished pieces to the website using Drupal CMS

  • Transcribe interviews

  • Track down images/artwork and obtain permissions for them (and, if you’ve got the skills, shoot photos and make some artwork yourself)

  • Fact-check stories (call sources, track down documents, be ruthless in your pursuit of truth)

  • Edit and proof pages (sharpen those copy-editing skills)

  • Write headlines and story descriptions for print and online

  • Post stories to social media with catchy subtitles to pull readers in

  • Attend weekly editorial meetings to pitch stories and shoot the breeze with your new favorite editors

  • Learn writing fundamentals, tips and tricks of the trade from CALIFORNIA mag’s finest

  • Have fun!

QUALIFICATIONS: 


  • A sense of humor: We take our journalism very seriously, but usually not ourselves. It’s wisecracks galore up in the California mag office. We joke. We make puns. We quip it—and quip it good. Come prepared to banter with the best of ‘em!

  • Proven ability to report and write things accurately, smartly, and concisely

  • Basic knowledge of HTML

  • Some social media knowhow (working knowledge of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)

  • Basic photo editing skills (knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is a plus)

  • The talent to think critically and listen effectively

  • The ability to work cooperatively and independently (we’re here to guide you, but we also like to let our interns learn some things on the fly, and on their own)

  • A burning desire to master the magical art of journalism! 

The internship is part-time (~20hrs/week) and lasts three months with a monthly stipend of $530. If applicable (meaning that we think you do a great job and you like it here) there’s a possibility for the internship to be extended for another three months. If all of this sounds like your kind of thing…

APPLY: But no phone calls, please! Send your resume, cover letter, and three non-academic writing samples by email to californiamag@alumni.berkeley.edu with “editorial intern” in the subject. The samples don’t need to be published, but we ask that at least one of them demonstrate journalistic ability (research and reporting skills).

Job Description


The world of business is now run by cloud platforms and SaaS applications. Many of these products have basic analytics built-in, but to get any substantial operational value from this data requires a great deal of time and expertise. There has been a rise of analytics platforms in the past few years to make sense of this data, but these platforms were made by engineers for engineers, requiring extensive technical knowledge to aggregate, correlate, and visualize the data, and business expertise to create useful insights from the data. This is why we created Fletch. For the non-technical, for the operators who need the data to get shit done.


Unlike data analytics platforms that start out empty and leave it to the user to figure out all the data plumbing, upkeep, and visualization, Fletch gets rid of this shitwork and automatically connects your data, generates useful insights, and explains them with simple to understand narratives so that business operators can get right to results.


Why Fletch Wants You?


We’re looking for a multi-talented, data-driven journalist to join our growing team to pioneer a new form of data-driven journalism. Picture this… what if your business and technology articles could come to life with the reader’s company’s data using Fletch? For instance, as you are reading about a new security hack you can instantly discover if it impacts you and your company. It’s like reading a personalized Wall Street Journal. You will own crafting these stories, working with contributors, and running research efforts to write technical articles, and be an evangelist for Fletch and its community of partners.


You are a player-coach journalist and editor that’s not afraid to roll up your sleeves, and you are excited about using data to tell a story. You are used to working with freelancers and experts to develop unique stories. You are comfortable working cross-departmentally, and potentially building a team of journalists around you. You are data-savvy and can convey deeply technical concepts in a simple yet compelling narrative. You should feel comfortable jumping in, asking the right questions, be an excellent communicator and collaborator with a research-driven mindset.


As a Data Journalist & Managing Editor, you will:



  • Pioneer a new form of data-driven journalism for Fletch

  • Research and develop new stories to tell using the Fletch product

  • Work closely with our product and marketing teams to develop compelling data-driven and technical content

  • Create relationships with the Fletch community and find exciting contributors and partnerships to drive content development and syndicate stories


Ideally, you’ll have:



  • A Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in journalism

  • 5+ years of experience in a journalism role

  • Prior work experience as a journalist, editor, and/or researcher comfortable working with and managing internal and external contributors

  • A strong storytelling ability for technology, security and/or business concepts

  • Exceptional writing, editing, and research journalism skills

  • Experience syndicating stories


We’d particularly love it if you have:



  • Previous experience as a managing editor

  • Proven experience writing technical or business articles for professionals

  • An understanding of how to scale content development and make the content development lifecycle move faster and more efficiently

  • Prior experience as a product or program manager


Company Benefits:



  • Flexible leave policy

  • Health care insurance

  • Dental & Vision insurance

  • 401(k)

  • Life insurance

  • Short-term & long-term disability insurance

  • Health care and dependent care FSA

  • Transit & parking FSA

  • Flexible work hours

  • Holiday time off


New hires must present within 3 days of starting the required documentation proving their ability to legally work in the USA. Fletch is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by applicable federal, state, or local law.

In the concept of a turbine, air or liquid that is picked up by the intake is converted into something far more compact, rich, and useful than it was in its previous state. Each individual Blade is sharp, fast, and cutting edge. When combined with other Blades, an undeniable force is created. 


Each one of us possesses an "owner's mindset" which shapes the shared responsibility for the entire team to show appreciation. We show up for each other. Every. Single. Day. And while team recognition can be a beautiful thing, it's the feeling of comradery and solidarity that comes with putting in the extra effort alongside a teammate that ensures each of us feels appreciated and valuable to the collective team. 


Because of our Blades dedication, we were named 2019 Inno on Fire and a 2020 Colorado Company to Watch.


Our ability to provide critical insights balances on our ability to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment. We're committed to developing and promoting a diverse workforce for all to thrive. We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds and all walks of life to apply.
