Job Description

ISeeChange, headquartered in New Orleans,  is a data and engagement company dedicated to helping cities combat climate change. Our AI-enabled platform cross-references community-reported events with real-time data, enabling sustainable, equitable and efficient infrastructure and public works projects in municipalities across North America. Cities, engineers, utilities, and researchers use our software as a service to site, design, build, and monitor climate solutions that work best for communities.

We are looking for a motivated part-time Community Outreach Coordinator to join the team in support of several projects ongoing in the New Orleans area. In particular, the Community Outreach Coordinator will support the ISeeChange team across several initiatives focused on local climate impacts in New Orleans—including heat and health impacts, floodwater mitigation, and urban tree-planting. This work will be interdisciplinary in nature, involving field survey work, event coordination, communications, and working directly with community members across several New Orleans neighborhoods. The Community Outreach Coordinator will also collaborate with local non-profit, municipal, and engineering partners to further project needs. The position will be contracted monthly up to 25 hours a month paid at $20/hour, and is compatible with a flexible work schedule. 

ISeeChange is a social benefit corporation that has been recognized by Morgan Stanley, Verizon, TechStars, MIT Solve, Echoing Green, Grist 50 Fixers, the White House, NASA, and the UN’s Global Innovation Coalition for Change. With users in 118 countries and public clients in New Orleans, Boston, and Greater Miami, we are expanding our team and launching new products ahead of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act.
