ABOUT TRESTLE

Trestle Collaborative provides hands-on support to movement organizations and tech companies to reinforce the technology scaffolding that enables our 21st century movements for justice, equity and progress.

We are a team of technologists — engineers, designers, product managers — who work with those who build and use technology for organizing, electoral campaigns and movement building to ensure they are getting the most possible impact from their technology investments.

We believe the people leading progress on the most pressing issues of our time — from racial justice to combating climate change to electing new generations of leaders — should not be hampered by a lack of resources to wield their tech tools. Trestle is here to help bridge those gaps.

HOW WE WORK

We help teams understand their technology gaps and needs, and offer recommendations, guidance, and support to help build capacity for strategic and thoughtful tech programs.

Our areas of expertise include organization tech strategy, product management, technology + application security, human-centered design, software engineering and product reliability.

At the core of our work, we offer short discovery sprints, where small multidisciplinary teams partner with an organization to assess the risks and challenges of a technology product, program or infrastructure, and to propose paths forward.

These sprints can range from a holistic look into how an organization is approaching its technology to a focused dive into a single topic, feature or product — such as the viability of an old system, the security risks of specific software, or the user experience of volunteer tools.

Beyond these engagements, we also offer four other areas of support:

  • Advising and consulting for individuals making key technology decisions;
  • Implementation guidance for technology projects;
  • Career mentorship for technologists in the movement;
  • Emergency response for crisis situations.

THINGS WE VALUE

We are a scrappy new organization, and as we build, we’re looking to these values to shape how we grow:

  • Approach with a humble, curious and collaboration mindset;
  • Equity, justice and liberation are paramount — to who we are, how we work and what we work for;
  • Seek to add value without seeking credit;
  • Surface the truth, through thoughtful and empathetic ways;
  • Do no harm — seek to understand implications and impacts and tread with care;
  • Don’t take ourselves too seriously — enjoy the work, the people and the mishaps along the way.

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

We are hiring part-time & full-time contractors to join us in solving some of the most critical technological challenges for the progressive movement. We are looking for mid-level and senior product managers, engineers and designers to contribute to short-term and long-term projects.

We are seeking folks who care deeply about the pressing issues of our day. We strongly encourage BIPOC, people with disabilities, people of diverse sexual orientations, gender expressions and identities to apply.

PM ROLES

Trestle is looking for Product Managers from all backgrounds and walks of life who have experience and passion for building inclusive, human-centered, accessible and secure digital products and services that are critical to the success of movement groups, non-profits, progressive candidates and committees.

  • Contractor positions ranging from 15 - 40 hours a week.
  • Compensation: $150/hr for part-time work and $16k/mo for full time work.
  • Work to occur on a rolling basis, with a minimum commitment of 3 to 6 weeks.
  • Work will be conducted 100% remotely.
  • We’ll support you with community, feedback and support of a cohort of peer technologists working across the sector.
  • We provide the tools and framework for the engagement, you bring your knowledge and willingness to work with partners to make their software better!

WHAT YOU'LL DO

You’ll lead a small team of engineers and designers to help political tech organizations quickly identify gaps in their existing technologies and services, and/or scale up new tools/features in response to user need, security risk, tech reliability, etc. Activities include:

  • Scope, lead, project manage, and support a new or existing teams building technology for progressive organizing and voter enfranchisement, often in small and scrappy contexts;
  • Embed with teams of high impact political and progressive technologists to quickly identify gaps in product strategy, feature development, user experience and reliability, and path to addressing those needs;
  • Collaborate with partner orgs, designers and engineers to assess, analyze and make recommendations to resolve technical and user needs.

PRODUCT MANAGEMENT SKILLS WE'RE LOOKING FOR

  • Dedication to agile, human-centered and standard industry best practices for product development. That means a comfort balancing tech and design needs, always advocating for users throughout, and comfort prioritizing and sizing work tasks for agile sprint-type work.
  • Ability to manage a small scrappy team in a time sensitive environment. We’re looking for folks who have experience managing a diverse team of people with specialized skills, who take a holistic approach to project management of complex cross-team projects to deliver them accurately and on time. Must have strong project management skills and must have a strong commitment to growing a team within a values system that includes Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity.
  • Great collaboration skills. Must have the ability to proactively seek solutions in coordination with their team. This includes the ability to re-prioritize tasks based on team needs, offer timely input, and share feedback on work progress. All work will be remote, so must have the ability to adapt to the best practices and challenges of working with a team located across the country.
  • Proactive, creative, problem solving. Must have good instincts when it comes to anticipating and foreseeing challenges before they arise. When confronted with new problems, you must be willing to get creative and think outside the box. You tackle challenges head-on, and you’re eager to dive in with others to identify the best path forward while understanding and being able to articulate trade-offs. The bottom line is you will find a solution that works.

OTHER THINGS WE'RE LOOKING FOR

  • A strong commitment to working on teams within a values system that includes diversity, equity and inclusivity.
  • Great communication skills, including the ability to jump in and communicate with new team members on short timelines. Must be comfortable synthesizing and explaining technology projects in layperson’s terms, both verbally and in writing.
  • A positive attitude and the ability to work well under pressure. We’re looking for “can do” people who are comfortable working in busy/high-pressure situations.
