Impactfully No. 25: Independent publishing

Welcome to our weekly jobs roundup in a new format! This week, we wanted to celebrate our new digs at Ghost with job opportunities from some of the companies that inspire us the most.

Welcome to our weekly jobs roundup in a new format! Last week we mentioned that we were leaving Revue as our publishing platform, and this issue marks our first with Ghost. We all need a fresh coat of paint once in a while, right?

Crucially, we wanted to find a partner that felt like the kind of company we would feature on One Work. Ghost stood out to us for its focus on independent publishing and their status as a nonprofit organization. They're hiring a Product Engineer (Back-end) with a focus on Node.js if you'd like to help create the future of independent publishing!

Ghost gives us new ways to help you find a meaningful career, and we'll have more to share soon as we roll out new features. One of those includes tailoring your newsletter interests, so to kick things off we're separating our weekly jobs roundup from social impact news.

This week, we wanted to celebrate our new digs with job opportunities from some of the companies that inspire us the most. Without further ado, here are this week's social impact job opportunities:
