I’ve moved the Nonproft Tech Jobs email distribution list over from Yahoo Groups to Google Groups. The reason is simple: Yahoo Groups doesn’t offer an RSS feed, and Google Groups does. What a trivial point of pain!
However, I’m very excited that NTEN now has a nonprofit tech jobs feed, and Amy Sample Ward asked me to point it at the @NPTechJobs Twitter account, which I was delighted to do. This gave me nudge I needed to move the list I started to a platform that made it not only possible but easy to use its RSS feed.
I am totally delighted to announce that I have joined Tech Networks of Boston as their Senior Technical Advisor and Strategist. It’s a pleasure to count as immediate colleagues my friends Susan Labandibar and Michael Fenter, and to be working with the client engagement team headed up by the awesome John Marchiony!
Here’s the TNB mission:
- Engage with people at all levels of the client organization so that they can learn, manage information, and communicate easily in a safe and supportive computing environment.
- Use experience, skills, and knowledge to help our clients build a mature information technology function that aligns with organizational mission and goals.
- Enable nonprofit organizations to use innovative and effective information technology tools to serve human needs.
Talk about mission alignment! I’ve already dedicated my professional life to these goals (plus a few others), but now I will be an integral part of an organization whose motto is “we’re better together,” rather than a lone nut! The ultimate in desired outcomes is that the world will be a better place, because the organizations that Tech Networks of Boston is serving will be succeeding in their missions.
At the same time, I want to assure my current clients that I will continue to be available to them on the usual basis, whenever they wish. My commitment to TNB is for four-fifths time, to allow me to continue to work with clients as a solo practitioner.
If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to be in touch through the usual channels. You are also welcome to contact me at my new office:

Since I run the Nonprofit Tech Jobs list (which also appears as a Twitter feed and a WordPress web site), I’m often asked about who in the nonprofit/philanthropic world is currently hiring. Fortunately, I can direct those who ask to the list, since I publicly post every relevant job announcement I know about there.
However, there are some other good sources of news about nptech job openings, and as a public service, I’m happy to post links to them here:

At various times, I’ve thought about shutting down the Nonprofit Tech Jobs list, because there are so many scattered announcements out there, and it’s really time consuming for one already-busy volunteer (yours truly) to keep up with it. Thus far, I haven’t found a technical solution – something that will scrape the data and aggregate it into one easy RSS feed – but I’m still hoping. Meanwhile, I post every nptech job announcement I can to the list.
