OpenTEAM is proud to have a well-trained, highly-qualified, and talented staff.
As a project led by Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment, OpenTEAM seeks individuals with a passion for sustainable agriculture, community, the environment, technology, and outdoor recreation. We hire individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences, including the natural sciences, agriculture, humanities and education.
Wolfe’s Neck Center supports a more equitable and just food system for all and works towards creating a more inclusive farm learning and working environment for those who are historically and currently under-supported in agriculture. This includes but is not limited to women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, veterans, low-income individuals, people of diverse religious and non-religious affiliations, immigrants, and asylum seekers.
Wolfe’s Neck Center offers a generous compensation package for full-time employees, benefits include 3 weeks paid vacation time for the first 3 years, 4 weeks at 4 years & 5 weeks at 8 years. The organization also offers earned sick time, maternity & family leave, and 12 paid holidays.
We offer a health insurance plan for families and their dependents; the organization pays 100% of premiums for employees and 50% for dependents. Employees are responsible currently for the initial annual deductibles met of up to $2,000 and $3,000 for employees and their dependents. WNC covers any additional deductibles incurred.
The center provides an optional 403(b) retirement plan for regular employees. As of the first day of the quarter following one year of employment the Center matches 100% of employee contributions up to 5% of eligible compensation (this is subject to change at the discretion of the organization). Employees are 100% vested in employer contributions after five full years of service.
Additional benefits include, a free family membership, ½ share of our annual CSA during the growing season. Additionally, employees and their immediate families may stay in the campground at a 25% discounted rate anytime space is available.
Most of all it is a fun place to work!
