Leadership Team Overview
Engineers for a Sustainable World, ESW, is a growing collection of technically-minded people looking to make the world a better a place. The Leadership Team is a team of volunteers from around the country working remotely in a digital environment to run the nonprofit side of ESW.
Our general requirements, regardless of position, are as follows:
- You need to be passionate about sustainability and agree with our mission, vision, and values.

- Proactiveness is important for the digital environment that we work in.
- You don't have to be familiar with ESW-HQ - we're friendly people, and we'd love to meet you.
About working with ESW
We accept applicants from all over the country. ESW volunteers work in a digital environment. We use Slack, Google Suite, and Zoom to communicate with each other. If you aren't familiar with these technologies, no worries! We'd love to teach you.
