About

We’re looking for several web developers to help Africa Agenda build and launch our new website. The plan is to launch the new website in the summer of 2017. The website will support Africa Agenda's mission to bring balance, create understanding, and to provide context and perspective to the reporting of Global African news. More than 12 million people have visited the Africa Agenda website to check out the news.

The web developer will work with other developers to conceptualize, design, implement and manage the website and align it with the business and social media goals of the organization. The essential duties of the developer will include the following: design, support, maintain and update the website as needed. The developer will also work to research new software and hardware tools and platforms for the website, providing website security, setting up web analytics and tracking website use and any issues that come up.

This position will report to the Executive Director of Africa Agenda.

We’re looking for coders who are versed in WordPress, CMS, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript, with a firm grasp of the front-end, back-end, and digital space. Proficiency in Adobe Creative Suite, InDesign, and Photoshop would be a plus. Familiarity with email distribution tools would be helpful as well. The ideal candidates will be team players who are willing to pitch in with a variety of activities related to communications and web development/maintenance.

This is a virtual position. However, there may be times when in-person meetings may be required and held at the Posner Center in Denver. The time commitment for this position is about 5 hours a week. Preference will be given to those who can commit to a minimum of three to six months of service.
