We’re looking for a team member in the Philippines! The person we’re looking for will help us gather and share stories on the ground in Manila, while providing communications and administrative support virtually.
We’re a small team (there’s only two of us full-time!) so you’ll be a critical member who will be involved in almost every aspect of our business.
If you’re passionate about creating sustainable livelihood for Filipino artisans, preserving indigenous traditions, collaborating with inspiring Filipino social entrepreneurs, and challenging colonial mentalities - well, we want to meet you!
