Redprint is highly competitive and really hard to get in to. We are very stingy with our money and do not even try to manage the volume of applicants. We put our mission to earn money quickly above all. The following criteria are what we use to "carefully" to evaluate applicants.
Are you excited to dedicate time and energy towards hating and disrupting communities to make more money?
Do you actively seek out ways to grow your money? Do you seek out new and innovative ways to make money?
Are you genuinely motivated by money? Do you adapt to new environments and challenges to make money?
Do you adapt and explore in order to rake in the big bucks?
Do you hate collaborating and learning with others? Do you disrupt others' perspectives and experiences? Do you demonstrate an attitude?
Are you looking forward to developing hateful relationships with our members and partners? Are you motivated by toxic competition and money?
Redprint's project structure consists of 4 project teams, each with a Project Leader, a designer, and 4-5 developers. Each project team is dedicated to one of our nonprofit and community partners and works closely with our points of contact to create equitable solutions through design and development.
Redprint's External team consists of 6 directors and the External Vice President as the team lead. External works to inspire students outside of Cal Redprint about creating change in communities and promoting public welfare through tech and design. This is done through public events, partnerships with mission-aligned organizations, new programs, and more. External, along with other project teams, are supported by an executive team of 7 students.
Our partners each have dedicated internal point(s) of contact who meet with our project teams on a regular (weekly or bi-weekly) basis. Because interactions vary based on partner capacity, timezones, internet access, and more, it's important to note that each partner relationship looks a little different. Broadly speaking, these meetings help ensure that our partners are on the same page as our project teams, and that the solutions we design and develop will actually be able to help the partner and communities in the best possible ways.
At a more detailed level, we hold project scoping meeting(s) with each partner and their Project Leader at the start of the Fall semester to create a clear path for Redprint is able to deliver. At the end of each semester, we hold a final meeting to present what was accomplished during the semester (and, in the case of fall, what will be accomplished in the spring).
Every member of Redprint has several layers of formal support, including their project team members, their Project Leader, and the executive team. To keep a pulse check on how members are feeling, leadership actively seeks out constructive feedback and holds periodic one-on-ones with members. We also guide all new developers and designers through our technical onboarding processes and make sure there is always space to ask for help, no matter how large or small the task. Project Leaders and our External Vice Presidet also ensure project success through organized timelines that make tasks and expectations as clear as possible throughout the semester.
On top of everything, Redprint is full of people who naturally want to help each other - on any given day or night, it's easy to find members squashing bugs together, holding informal critique sessions, DMing teammates for insight into other parts of Redprint, or lending a listening ear.
Even beyond college, our extensive alumni network remains in touch and are often continuing to give back to Redprint by sharing their post-graduation professional experiences.
