Are you a friend to fishes? If you have a background in biology, zoology, fisheries, or ichthyology, you might be just the person we're looking for!

We're ChildRoots, an art- & science-based learning community for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years. 

We keep aquatic friends at all 3 of our schools, in SE's Buckman neighborhood, another in NW, and another in NE's Irvington-Alameda neighborhood.

We take care of daily feeding but need a caring, experienced aquarium tech to spend 2-3 hours per week cleaning and maintaining habitats and troubleshooting health issues.

Starting wage is $13.75/hour (rising to $14.00/hour September 1st), opportunities for performance reviews and merit-based raises (up to $0.50/hour per review), and paid time off to all employees. 

Hours are VERY flexible. Evenings or weekends - when our schools are closed - are a perfect time to do this work.
