We are always looking to add to our editorial, business, and design teams. Our volunteer positions require anywhere from one to five hours a week, depending on our publishing schedule. We ask for a one-year commitment, especially in more senior roles, though exceptions can be made. Mochi does not have an office space, so most communication takes place online.
