Program Coordinator Job Posting
We are expanding our team!
Apply before 5:00pm, September 20, 2021!
Bike Walk Nebraska, a 501(c)(3) located in Omaha, has a mission to make active transportation safer and more accessible in Nebraska. Our mission is statewide but we are adding a new Program Coordinator position to our team that will focus on issues in the Omaha metro area.
The Program Coordinator will help implement our new Trails and Transportation for Everyone initiative. You’ll be working with existing and new partners to increase the number of natural surface trails and trail amenities east of 48th Street with an emphasis on equity, access and community advocacy. In addition, you’ll assist in coordinating outreach, stakeholder engagement, education and evaluation activities for related initiatives and assist in coordinating logistics and outreach to potential high school teams for Nebraska NICA. Beginning in 2022, you’ll help coordinate the work of a couple of interns, too. This position is full time, exempt, at will and grant funded for at least 3 years. The starting salary range is $50,000 - $60,000 per year, depending on experience.
Are YOU our ideal candidate? If so, you will have a Bachelor’s Degree in a related field and at least 1-3 years of experience working in a non profit or community-based organization; previous experience working within the communities of north or south Omaha would be fantastic. If you have some working knowledge about active transportation issues (walking, bicycling, transit) it would be great, but we can teach you what you need to know. BIPOC candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
Beyond that, if you are passionate about equity issues and consider yourself organized, self motivated and able to work independently, read on. If you are outgoing, comfortable giving presentations and have great writing skills, keep going. If all of this describes you AND you love being part of a small team and have the ability to be flexible, creative, and maintain a relatively good sense of humor during the usual ups and downs, we want to talk to you.
Our office will soon be relocating to 49th & Dodge, steps away from the ORBT station. The job will occasionally require: evenings and/or weekends (meetings and events), travel (mostly for training/professional development) and the ability to work outside (parks, natural surface trails, bike lanes, outreach events).
In return, we offer flexibility: the ability to work from home as needed, casual dress code, a family friendly environment, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day off, and unlimited PTO after a 90 day probationary period. We’ll provide a monthly stipend to help offset the cost of your health insurance; same goes for your cell phone and also your laptop if you’d rather use yours than ours. We’ll support your active transportation needs with an annual stipend for bicycle gear/equipment, indoor bike parking, an annual B-Cycle membership and ORBT passes for work trips to meetings downtown. We will also cheer enthusiastically if you arrive at the office a little sweaty and with helmet hair.
Please send your resume and a statement of 300 words or less (creativity is strongly encouraged!) about why you are a good candidate for this job before 5:00pm, September 20 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interviews with promising candidates will be scheduled as resumes are received.
