Looking to build beautiful and meaningful websites for organizations that matter?

Great Believer is a design agency for nonprofits with a focus on WordPress websites. We’ve recently launched intuitive, inspiring websites for nonprofits like The Fresh Air Fund, School of American Ballet and Data2X.

We’re looking for a reliable, detail-oriented and ambitious WordPress Developer to join our team. In this full-time role, you’ll build, maintain and optimize a range of nonprofit websites – altogether playing a major role in the success of many organizations.

Your responsibilities…

  • Build custom WordPress themes that are easy to manage and exact replicas of our designs.
  • Maintain a range of WordPress sites by adding new pages and/or functionality, performing plug-in updates, enhancing security and fixing bugs.
  • Partner with our design team to advise on the technical viability of their ideas.
  • Stay on top of the latest trends in nonprofit technology, including donation systems, e-blast platforms and job portals.
  • Work alongside our wider network of web developers to keep all projects running smoothly.
  • Connect with our hosting provider to ensure all hosted sites are secure and high-performing.
  • Build genuine relationships with the points of contact at our nonprofit clients.

Our requirements…

  • 3+ years of WordPress experience, including a solid understanding of PHP/MySQL, core WordPress functions, custom themes, custom post types and effective plugins.
  • The ability to write clean front-end code that’s responsive, cross-browser compatible, maintainable, scalable and built from Sketch design files.
  • A familiarity with accessibility standards (e.g. WCAG and ADA).

Bonus points if you have…

  • A background in UX or design.
  • Experience with Salesforce.
  • Expertise in Google Analytics and/or SEO.

Our team works best with those who are…

  • Energized by nonprofits
  • Extremely detail-oriented
  • Excellent communicators
  • Eager to collaborate
  • Easy to get along with

Benefits and company policy

  • All full-time employees are eligible for a generous paid time off policy, subsidized benefits (medical, dental, vision, life and commuter), a 401k program and professional development opportunities.
  • The salary range for this position is $80,000–$100,000, contingent on expertise and experience.
  • Though the whole Great Believer team is working remotely for the time being, the WordPress Developer will eventually work at our Brooklyn office.
  • Great Believer is an equal opportunity employer that celebrates diversity and inclusiveness. We encourage all candidates to apply for this position.
