Resource Specialists (6 months)

Pay rate: $18/hour
One Degree, a program of Alluma, is a nonprofit technology platform that is revolutionizing the way low-income families access community resources and benefits. We believe finding the emergency food, shelter, or health services you need should be as easy as ordering takeout on a delivery app. To achieve that goal we create modern tech-driven solutions that have helped more than half a million families find, access, and manage nonprofit and social services efficiently and with dignity.
We are a low-ego, humble group of people that love what we do and love bringing out the best in each other. We are committed to diversity and especially encourage applicants from members of underrepresented communities, such as people of color, LGBTQ community members, people with lived wisdom in low-income communities, and individuals with disabilities, to apply.

There may be opportunity to join our team beyond 6 months if positions are available.

We currently serve the Bay Area, Los Angeles, NYC, Detroit, SW New Mexico, and Gainesville, FL (and growing!).
