The Pacific NW Rural Broadband Alliance is a newly formed non-profit that is dedicated to building community owned and operated broadband networks for under-served and un-connected rural communities.
We have recently launched our flagship network, The Missoula Valley Internet Co-op, with two more networks slated for 2021: The Anderson Island Internet Co-op (Washington) and Lake County Internet Co-op (Montana). As we are a newly founded non-profit, situated to rapidly grow with high customer demand throughout the Missoula and Bitterroot valley, we are looking to begin growing our organization.
We are presently looking for a volunteer web developer / web designer who is ideologically aligned with helping make a positive impact on Montanan’s access to fast and affordable broadband service. If this volunteer shows talent and dedication over 3 months this position would grow into paid contract position, with the possibility of part or full time employment by years end.
