“The Newbie is a heart project that has been going strong since 2011. But as many heart projects it is not always something you can invest your entire work day. The Newbie Team is dedicated and passionate but we all work on Newbie as a side project which means that no one on the team is currently being paid – yes that means the founders as well.” (Julieta Spoerer, CEO)

What we look for in our volunteers

  • You believe in the need for efficient integration.
  • You can commit to the tasks and goals agreed with you.
  • You are comfortable working remotely and on a flexible schedule.
  • You are available for eventual meetings if needed.
