Web Developer Needed for GearedUP Outdoors

A group of current and recent Environmental Science graduate students from the Bren School at UCSB are looking for someone with web development skills or experience to create a website for their outdoor gear platform, GearedUP Outdoors.

These enterprising students got the idea for this service from a shared interest in playing outside and a goal to share this passion with a greater online community. They hope this venture not only makes it easier for others to access different types of outdoor gear, but in the long run, they also want to help get more people outside. Their belief is that the more people enjoy nature (especially from a young age), the more they will care about protecting it in the future.   

The graduate students plan to pilot a beta website here in Santa Barbara and the surrounding areas. They have a landing page, GearedUP Outdoors, but need to transform this into a working site. The site would be structured around connecting gear users in any given city, and it would include internal messaging systems, user-profile creation, and a clean overall design.   

They are looking for someone who has interest in this idea and experience with this type of development. The time frame for the website is flexible. Interested applicants include someone who could work with them long term. However, they will consider those who can only work on this project for a determined period of time. Compensation will be provided.

To apply and/or to ask questions, please email your contact information and qualifications to Christine Quigley at cquigley@bren.ucsb.edu.
