OFF-GRID ELECTRIC
• Contact: Dr. Sarah-Jane Murray

Not just any job. . .This one comes with safaris.

Off Grid Electric is a growth-stage startup that’s on track to light a million homes in Africa over the next couple years with clean, affordable solar energy (see the articles at the bottom of this post). With a distributed global team concentrated in San Francisco and East Africa, we’re now looking for whip smart software team members who bring lateral thinking, experience-based pragmatism, and fearlessness in the face of the unknown. You will fall in love with this role if you can get passionate about bringing solar energy-as-a-service to off-grid markets -- over 1.3 billion people around the world -- with the unique social, technical, and business challenges that come along with it. Naturally, you’ll be hungry for adventure, inspired by the opportunity to unleash whole continents of human potential, and motivated to help build a truly epic business.


PEOPLE+GOOD
• Contact: Dr. Sarah-Jane Murray

People+Good was created on the belief that youth all over the world want to use their skills for good and build a better planet but lack the opportunities needed to make this happen. We wanted to change this and over the past few months have assembled a network of partners globally to make Bangalore (India) the testing ground for the most radical academic-work program in the world.

The program will gather the sharpest and most talented university students and young professionals on the planet and group them in multi-disciplinary teams so that they can tackle India’s greatest challenges.

We strongly believe that money should never disqualify individuals from opportunities that help realize their potential or defy their reality.

It is in this spirit that we started the Fellowships initiative to fully cover the People+Good Program Fee for applicants who could not afford to pay for it. At this point in time we have 12 Fellowships available and we are working with additional sponsors to increase this number.

What if we could actually fix politics? We’ve already revolutionized the way we learn, live, and communicate; what if a new generation could do the same for the way we govern?

We are Run for America. We believe now is the time to summon the same spirit of innovation, collaboration, and aspiration of our nation’s founding in order to shape our nation’s future.

Our mission is to recruit, train, and work to elect a new generation of leaders to Congress who are committed to a solutions-first, future-focused approach to tackling our major national challenges. We are seeking a dozen of the most visionary and talented Americans -- Democrats, Republicans, and independents -- to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2016, together… to run for a better government, to run for a brighter future, to run for us.

Our movement starts by finding them, now. Will you help?
