ioby is a community of donors, volunteers and leaders creating, funding and implementing neighborhood projects that aim to make their neighborhoods stronger and more sustainable. ioby operates primarily through ioby.org, a digital crowd-resourcing platform that supports these citizen-led, neighbor-funded initiatives in raising tax-deductible donations, volunteer recruitment and idea sharing. Crowd-resourcing, combining concepts in crowd funding and resource organizing, allows anyone to organize all types of capital — financial capital, social capital, in kind donations, volunteer muscle — from within the community where the project is taking place.
ioby seeks a part-time Neighborhood Research Fellow based in Brooklyn, NY. The Fellow will play a critical role in building ioby’s capacity to report on our community impact. We are launching a Neighborhood Survey to gauge neighbors’ awareness and perception of ongoing ioby projects in New York City and our target cities, Memphis, Cleveland, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and DC.
Reporting to the Grants Manager, this team member will project manage the survey, be responsible for developing the strategy to disseminate the neighborhood survey, collect data, and analyze and synthesize the findings. The overall goal of the project is to gain a more robust understanding of the impact neighborhood projects have on residents and their communities. We expect to use the findings in our annual reports, grant reports, and more.
For the right candidate, this position is an exciting opportunity to shape the growth of a mission-driven, community-based nonprofit tech startup while contributing to a broad movement of citizen-led neighborhood development. In addition, you’ll leave the fellowship with real-life experience in using cutting-edge cloud-based project management tools and working with an all-star team on the leading edge of a new field of practice.
