The Tech4Good Lab has several positions open next quarter for undergraduate students from all majors. We are looking for people who are extremely responsible, love learning, and have a strong drive to apply technology for social good. For next quarter, we have positions across the following types of contribution:
- User research: interviewing users and analyzing interviews to understand user needs and context,
- Usability evaluation: conducting evaluations of interfaces for usability,
- Interface design: designing and iterating on web interfaces in Figma,
- Web development: coding an app within an Angular/NgRx/Firebase stack,
- DevOps: building tools to support developers and operations across lab projects,
You would be contributing to a variety of projects in the lab related to designing systems to better support the future of education, work, and community engagement:
- Helping connect with community leaders to establish an ecosystem connecting learning on campus to community projects (see Santa Cruz Tech Beat article),
- An app aimed at scaling apprenticeship learning, where people learn web development through micro-roles and help to build websites for nonprofits as they learn,
- An app aimed at microlearning through small groups to create learning environments supporting curiosity, creativity, and relationships,
- An app containing short activities for team/group community building, and also creating "small group networks" that can facilitate interesting collective goals,
- An app aimed at supporting students in setting career goals and studying conversational interfaces for group mentorship from professionals.
Joining requires a commitment of 10 hours/week for the quarter for independent study credits. If you are interested, fill out the Tech4Good Lab Interest Form and send an email to David Lee (email@example.com).
