Palante Tech Blog

Palante is excited to welcome Jessica Oros as our newest worker! Jess is a software engineer with more than ten years of professional experience developing, maintaining and supporting websites and applications. As an activist and organizer, Jess is a longtime participant in struggles for social justice like the ones she'll be supporting through her web work at Palante. We're excited to add Jess' expertise to our team, expanding our capacity to support our clients as well as allowing us to contribute more to the open source projects we use and benefit from daily.
This past June, the Palante Technology workers met up in upstate New York for our summer retreat. Nina joined us remotely from Michigan. Many snacks were eaten, many important conversations were had!
This position has been filled! Palante Technology Cooperative is seeking a new worker to join our cooperative! We are looking for someone who is passionate about supporting nonprofit social justice organizations in meeting their technology goals. The new worker will join our web team, providing remote support, training, feature development and other services to clients across the country.
Palante is pleased to announce that Janine has accepted an invitation to become our latest worker-owner. Janine joined us last fall and hit the ground running, getting deeply immersed in dealing with Palante's diverse field of IT clients. They are now a vital part of our technical support wing and we are excited to continue to grow with them as an owner.  Let us all congratulate Janine on becoming a full worker-owner in our cooperative. 
Back in early February, Palante headed to our newest outpost in Long Beach, California for our winter retreat. Retreats are a big change of pace: our team is distributed across both coasts and in between, and we're typically quite occupied with day-to-day work. Twice a year, we dedicate a full weekend to the retreat and put together an agenda of longer conversations we think will benefit from being in the same room (with the occasional marathon video conference participant).
Palante is thrilled to introduce our newest worker, Janine Ko! Janine comes to us with a background in computer science, peer education, ethnic studies, and health organizing, and has also worked with some of Palante's current clients in their capacity as an organizer. Their work at Palante will focus on providing tech support to clients in New York City. We're excited to have another awesome new cooperative member to work with and look forward to their collaborations with Palante's client organizations!
