Open Works Seeks Marketing Coordinator

Company Background

OW is a 501(c)(3) non-profit makerspace and was founded in 2016. Our mission is to make tools, technology, and the knowledge to use them accessible to all. We accomplish this through affordable membership access to industrial-grade fabrication equipment; access to low-cost studio space; partnerships with many Baltimore colleges, nonprofits, and community groups; and a wide variety of classes for both young people and adults. All of these efforts support a broader vision of rebuilding Baltimore’s manufacturing economy from the grassroots up. In addition to serving Baltimore, Open Works has become a national leader in the nascent field of makerspace administration, establishing new business models; exemplary equity and inclusion efforts; and innovative emergency manufacturing capabilities.
