AS Dept. of Public Worms is hiring for ALL positions! We have a large number of our team graduating and going abroad, so we have many exciting opportunities to those who love working outside starting as early as this summer.

Operations Coordinator: run our compost and schedule our staff – this person will be in charge of maintaining our worms, hot compost piles, and monitoring the progress of compost at Family Student Housing. In this position, you’re in charge of a great team and get to be the lead for UCSB’s very own on-site composting program! $13/hr, 12-15 hours/week

Outreach Coordinator: in charge of all tabling, events, social media, advertising, marketing, and brand development. If you’re more of an office person, you might make a great outreach coordinator, planning events and telling campus all about what worm wranglers do. This job is very independent, project oriented, and requires creatively thinking outside the box. $12/hr, 12-15 hours/week

Worm Wrangler: Our general team members. These folks feed our worms, collect food scraps, and get dirty with our compost. Perfect for those who love working outdoors! This next year we will also be largely expanding our agricultural operations as part of the Edible Campus Program – We’ll be working with the soil to grow food from UCSB food scraps, all given back to campus at no cost through the AS Food Bank! $10.75/hr, 8-10 hours/week
(All positions will receive a $0.50 raise over the summer.)

Application may be submitted online through gaucholink, or email your cover letter & resume directly to
