Freelance Django Developer - 10-15 hours/month (Must be US based)

Do you wish you could change the world? Would you like to work with a group of dedicated professional change makers who come to work every day and do just that? We believe society is broken and we are called to play a role in fixing it. We are passionate about safety and see far too many preventable injuries and deaths occurring. We know we can change this.

The Redwoods Group changes the world for the better through the inspired application of insurance intelligence and a deep commitment to the broad community within which we live and serve. We tackle very serious issues with very serious stakes, from child sexual abuse to drowning. And we do this because our corporate mission is not to make a profit, but to make sure that communities profit from our work. For us, financial profit is important, but only as a metric of sustainability. We are a hybrid of non-profit and for-profit, called a B-Corporation (for benefit). By providing property/casualty and workers’ compensation insurance products alongside safety and claims management services to YMCAs, Jewish Community Centers and non-profit resident camps across the nation, we are reducing injuries and saving lives.
