Filling Space is a social enterprise aiming to popularize and democratize human activity in space. We seek to fill the following positions, all of which are unpaid and require less than 10 hours per week of your time. Please contact us via the contact form on this website.

WEBSITE ENGINEERĀ 

We need an engineer to maintain and improve the website. Primary tasks include ensuring there are regular backups, taking measures to avoid malware infiltrates, implementing search engine optimization, and creating new pages when necessary. Preferably you have and want to showcase and develop your skills in front-end languages including HTML, CSS, CSS3, Responsive Design, JavaScript, jQuery, SASS, and in back-end languages including PHP, MySQL, and PHPmyAdmin.

EDITOR

We need an editor to help us curate content on the website. The main function of this position is to write and finalize weekly articles for publication. The basic elements of Filling Space articles are: three to four short paragraphs of context-setting; questions and answers with a relevant expert; and a featured piece of media, usually a photo or video. You do not need to collect expert commentary; you are given questions and answers with an expert. You then need to incorporate that commentary into an article, producing one per week.

SOCIAL MEDIA COORDINATOR

We need a social media coordinator to support our social media presence. The key function of this position is to increase Filling Space’s number of interactions on social media. Use tools like TweetDeck to schedule regular daily Twitter and Instagram posts (at least three and one per day, respectively). Make social media posts advertising new articles when they are published. Use hashtags and interact with other social media users to generate growth in our social network.
