Growing the Team...Again

Its been a very active few months at SeeClickFix and as such we're growing the team.   We've been busy with on boarding new Government clients like Oakland, CA Minneapolis, MN Coon Rapids, MN Hendersonville, NC O'Fallon, IL,  Bainbridge, GA Macon GA Canton, GA, Nevada MO.   We've also been busy with launches of new media partners like WISTV in South Carolina and Granite Broadcasting.
We've also launched another custom mobile application with Washington, DC and are busy connecting up existing clients like Dunwoody, GA to City Works.

Its clear that local governments are more than ready for Gov20 and open, social and public reporting has become the norm.  As such we have just taken on two new interns and community manager. Emma has moved to handling media partnerships and Megan has moved to managing government relationships.

In the Intern corner we have Hans Schoenburg and Jessica Cole and in the Community Manager corner we have Kevin Donohue.

Hans
Hans is working on mobile application development with Jason. He towers over a standing desk in the office by day and drops mean PechaKucha presentations on his other project GiftFlow by night.  Hans is a Yale grad passionate about economies of giving and social entrepreneurship.



Jess
Jess, like Hans, is also working on another start-up called Roameo as a founder while she attends Yale.   I met Jess via the Twitterverse a few years back. Since then Jess led a group of volunteers in Yale's Day of Service assisting SeeClickFix. Jess will be surveying existing users and helping us with critical insights into our existing community.



Kevin
Kevin joins SeeClickFix as full-time employee number 11. Kevin will be our full-time community manager which means he'll be primarily responsible for keeping the SCF community constructive and on track towards the goal of improved and self-sufficient communities.  Kevin has previously interned for SeeClickFix while wrapping up his M.B.A at Fairfield University.  Kevin brings a unique perspective to the team with his experience leading service trips to Jamaica for Fairfield University Campus Ministry.


The talent keeps on showing up at our doorsteps here in New Haven and we grow increasingly enthusiastic about our choice of hometowns for SCF.  All of our new folks either bicycle or  walk to the office from some of the great surrounding neighborhoods that they themselves are working to make better.

Power to the Community!
