@tty Besides "solarpunk," what sorts of work are you looking for?

@jrc03c my background is in tech, mostly programming, so I expect my options to be constrained to that. I'm also trying to get a work visa to do such a job in the US, which limits the pool further to companies who are willing to do the labour of hiring an immigrant worker

@tty Gotcha. Is there any particular field you're wanting to use your programming skills in?

@jrc03c not really, tbh! i'm feeling pretty tired of programming

@tty Ah. So, if not programming, then what else would you do? Sorry for asking so many questions!

@jrc03c I notice that someone asking me a line of questions /wo saying why feels kinda uncomfortable

@tty Oh, I'm so sorry for making you uncomfortable! That definitely wasn't my intention. I was just trying to figure out if I knew of any openings or companies that might interest you. I was also sort of curious to know what companies (if any) interested you from a solarpunk perspective. Please feel free to ignore the questions if they're making you uncomfortable!

@jrc03c thanks for clarifying, that helps :)

I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. It will probably end up being programming, though ideally for a nonprofit or co-op, if you know any of those!

@tty Gotcha. Well, I'm not sure I know any off the top of my head. It's not a nonprofit, but I do web dev and data science for Spark Wave (sparkwave.tech), which does social science research that has so far centered mostly around depression, anxiety, rationality, and behavior change. We occasionally hire new developers, so if that field sounds interesting to you, I can keep an eye out for openings. In any case, good luck!

@tty Hm. Our root domain seems to be having trouble at the moment. Here's a better link, I think: sparkwave.tech

@tty that's the sort of work that you need to create for yourself <3

@neauoire yes, that'd be ideal. right now my restriction is needing a work visa to stay in the us :/
