Salty at Heart has recently acquired nonprofit tax-exempt status and has been growing its team of talented, passionate, creatives and go-getters to help us follow our mission. For 2017 we have many goals set in place and need to grow our team in order to tackle them. If you are stoked about our mission and want to help us spearhead this project, read on!
Who will you be working with
So who are we anyways? We are goofy and fun, and diverse in our skills and personalities, but united in the desire to inspire and bring about positive change. We are not all surfers, but share a common love for the sea and this planet.
Please note that these are all volunteer positions (as are all positions right now). Hours are minimal and can be easily managed with a full-time job. However, we do ask that you only apply if you feel your schedule will allow. These positions can be done remotely but do require a skype and email account. You also must be a US citizen, except for the Ambassador positions, which can be international applicants.
