Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

We are is a waste management social enterprise that is moving India's solid waste sector to models that are simultaneously environmentally and financially sustainable. We offer professional waste collection and processing services to large housing societies, manufacturers, and waste pickers. Our multifaceted model reduces waste to the dumpsite, improves waste picker livelihoods, and increases agricultural productivity through the organic compost we create. Since fall 2013, we have averted over 1,400 tons of waste from Indian dumpsites.

Our business is growing rapidly in Hyderabad, with multiple new partners and large customers recently confirmed. We have developed a high-quality organic compost now selling on e-commerce platforms such as Amazon. To further spotlight our compost, we seek a Web Design Experteer to build out a product page (sub-page to our existing website) where customers can find information on the product and order directly. 

DELIVERABLES

The Web Design Volunteer’s responsibilities will include:

  • Develop 1 high-quality web page that leverages graphics provided by our graphic designer and copy provided by our team to include
    • Product description, including benefits and how to use
    • Order portal
    • Overview of brick & mortar retailers of where the product can be found
  • Design the page in alignment with our existing website design standards
  • Ensure WVI team understands how to make further edits

This work can be completed remotely and could require multiple iterations. The role will work directly with the company’s Managing Director.

  • Web Design
  • Web Development

We Provide These Local Benefits


ACCOMMODATION

We offer a full room with private bathroom, double size bed, brand new AC unit, a full desk, super fast wifi, and plenty of sunlight. The room is one of 3 bedrooms in our office which is a converted modern 3 bedroom apartment (the other two bedrooms are meeting rooms). The lodging is located in the heart of Hi-Tech City (opposite the Google office), Hyderabad's fastest growing area and full of new restaurants, bars and nightlife. Also included in the lodging is:

  • Full kitchen and cookware
  • Automatic washing machine
  • Refrigerator
  • Free purified water and ground coffee

LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

Given the length and nature of this project, it likely does not make sense for the Experteer to come in person unless they are already located in Hyderabad, or would like to use this as an excuse to meet with our team in person. However, there are several benefits to the Experteer:

  • Insight into how a fast-paced early-stage startup operates
  • A broader network in the social enterprise space including addition to the WVI Alumni Network
  • Certificate of Completion

Additionally, if the Experteer is in Hyderabad, they can join all of our team meetings and team events.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

This is an ideal opportunity for a student or professional looking to polish her or his skills in web design/development, increase her/his portfolio, and gain exposure in the social enterprise space. We consistently collaborate with leading impact investors, conferences, and pioneers in the circular economy. Your work will gain exposure to our elite audience. We are happy to help get your quality work in front of the right eyes.
