Jobs + Internships

Hey there! We're so excited to be expanding our team in 2018. We are currently searching for a few talented women to join forces with us in our mission to encourage mothers. While we are still growing, some of these positions are volunteer-based. It is our plan to make every position within C+C a paid position as soon as it is financially possible for us to do so (hopefully later this year!). 

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming number of applications we've received, we are closing all applications end of day on January 12th. Thank you so much! We are humbled and grateful that so many talented women want to work with us!

Podcast Host


About the show // The Coffee + Crumbs podcast is an audible space designed to make mothers feel safe, known, encouraged and loved. We talk about everything from mom hacks and little luxuries to the deeper stuff, like marriage and mental health. Past topics have included: adoption, miscarriage, infertility, step-parenting, working moms, parenting with special needs, growing your family, raising bicultural / bilingual kids, birth stories, and many more. We’ve interviewed a variety of guests including Erin Loechner, Jen Hatmaker, Ann Voskamp, and Heather Avis.

Our podcast can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, and Spotify. With 43 episodes under our belt, our show has been downloaded more than half a million times.

You are organized, professional, creative, optimistic and enthusiastic. You can transition easily between light-hearted topics and heavy ones, and enjoy asking thoughtful questions. You love being part of a team and working with other women. You believe in community over competition. You are hardworking, humble, respectful, and have a good sense of humor.
