Developer

Required Skills & Experience

As part of our small and agile team of web developers, you will be responsible for conceptualizing and implementing entire features from end-to-end. Our web developers are all-rounders as comfortable with creating interactive visualizations for the vast amounts of data we’ve collected as they are with making our HTML5-heavy site interoperable across various browsers and mobile platforms.

We are looking for developers with demonstrated technical mastery and a long list of successful projects, particularly in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. On our back-end, we use a variety of technologies, such as Java and BerkeleyDB. You don’t need to come in knowing all of these; we want talented engineers who can pick up the tools they need on the fly, and who share our passion for writing code that will help non-profit organizations across the world. If you fit this bill, apply now.

Please Provide

  1. A cover letter, detailing why you would like to join us and why you think you are a good fit.
  2. Your résumé and portfolio. We are very interested in links to previous projects that you’ve played a significant part in (please include a description of your role in those projects). Where appropriate, feel free to give us links to code snippets, design sketches, etc. relevant to these projects as well.
  3. If you are a student or if you have graduated within the last 3 years, please include a copy of your unofficial transcript.

Interaction Designer

Required Skills & Experience

As part of our small team of designers you will be required to apply user centered design thinking to deliver intuitive end-to-end strategic interactions, user experiences and visual designs. You will work with our Design Directors to create workflows, storyboards, personas, interaction flows, wireframes, low fidelity mock-ups, high fidelity prototypes, and UI specifications. Present proposed designs to cross-functional teams with varying degrees of design knowledge, and identify and negotiate optimal trade-offs between business needs, user experience outcomes, and technology constraints.

We are looking for a candidate with two to three + years of hands-on interaction design experience producing usable software experiences in the complete product development lifecycle. You must have a solid academic background and a four-year degree in a relevant field, or in a non-related field with equivalent work experience and demonstrate an ability to communicate design concepts and rationale both verbally and visually. Strong working knowledge of design and protyping tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks.

Please Provide

  1. A cover letter, detailing why you would like to join us and why you think you are a good fit.
  2. Your résumé.
  3. A link to a portfolio that contains internal team deliverables. This may include annotated wireframes, information architecture maps, sitemaps, screen flows, design specifications, design patterns, or other documents that demonstrate your interaction design experience.
