We have two jobs that qualify as two-fers and they are anything but typical! Employment with us is a lifestyle on the water. Be prepared to suddenly have the most fulfilling and extraordinary job around with co-workers who will become your family. We’re on this mission for the long haul, whatever it takes. If you are in need of something different, this experience will not disappoint!
We are looking for a self-motivated, positive, creative and adventurous Social Media Specialist (SM) & Education Coordinator (EC) (both also doubling as general crew members) to join our growing team and river clean-up crew!
SM Job: Your main duties will include all things digital and media-related to showcase our organization’s mission and operation via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, etc.
EC Job: Teaching kids about stewardship, water quality, careers, waste reduction and more with the focus on protecting our rivers and waters throughout the country and world. Most kids range from grades 7-12 in our one-of-a-kind FLOATING CLASSROOM! You’ll also teach virtual classes.
**Both are hands-on jobs that CAN NOT be done remotely. This is your chance to try something different. It’s the job you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life!
What else can we tell you? You’ll be living on a barge with about 10 other river rats for a good portion of the year (~9 months, give or take)! We have lots of fun while getting hard work done. You must be willing to show up early and leave late but you must also enjoy frozen pizza and other free groceries. You’ll be living with other cool, like-minded humans and barge dogs so you must love people and dogs. Lastly, and we’ll totally have your back on this one but you must “laugh” at the boss’s jokes!! Actually, we have to admit, he is pretty funny but let’s just keep that between us, mmmmk?
Your room and board are covered while living on the barge as part of your employment package. This is communal, barge living which means you’ll have a private bedroom, shared his and hers bathrooms, and a full galley for shared dining.
