Positions Open at Beneath the Tangles

A few months ago, we reached out to ask for volunteers to join Beneath the Tangles. We filled several positions, but are still looking for a few others! If you’d like to help us in our mission / ministry, please consider applying.

All staff at Beneath the Tangles are Christian and we see this site as both a place to develop quality content as we geek out about our hobby as well as the conduit through which we discuss and share our faith. If you’re interested in joining our staff of dedicated volunteers, please see the openings below and apply by December 15th.

Note that all those applying must complete a staff application. Additional components are mentioned below in the description for each of the open positions. Application packets should be emailed to us.
