Job Opportunity 

Plan A seeks to plug into women’s stories from across the Arctic to match them to existing research and expose gaps in policy making. We are looking for passionate women coders/developers to help us build out the back-end of such a platform. Neither of us co-founders is well-versed in tech, so this is a great opportunity to significantly influence a social-entrepreneurial project.
