Everyone who uses the app will be verified. Kids will be segregated into different age brackets with different privileges. Businesses inside the system will set up a 3D environment for customers. We will give access to Augmented Reality for all businesses and creators. 

We are currently looking for a business analyst to join our business development team to help guide us in the below areas:
-Analytics support in the software development life cycle of 65square

The role is designed to start as a volunteer position - possibly 3/4 hours per week. After a probationary period, this may turn into a paid position. We also desire to have volunteers graduate to full/part time leadership roles in our organization in the near future.
