Website Design & Development Volunteer
VOLUNTEERING AT ORCHARD: AFRICA
Here at Orchard, we're always looking for talented, faithful and passionate volunteers who are ready to change the world and are looking for a hands-on experience. We work hard to maintain a positive, fun, and uplifting culture where creativity, personality and individual growth are more than encouraged, they’re expected. In exchange for your hard work you will get to showcase your talents to a global audience while being a meaningful contributor in the fight to restore hope to those afflicted by poverty & injustice.
WHO YOU ARE:
You’re someone that wants to change the world and believes that the local church is the absolute best platform from which to do it. You love people and the church.
You’re a glass half-full person, who sees opportunity where others may see a challenge.
You’re someone with a passion to design - it’s more than a casual hobby, this is what you love to do and you’re really good at it.
You design beyond the now - embracing trends without sacrificing longevity.
You’re a mobile first designer that believes website should be as beautiful as they are functional.
You’re someone that’s not only driven, but able to drive your own boat.
We have a high priority need to migrate our website onto a CMS that will allow internal staff (who have little to no coding ability) to publish new content, update existing content, and test new messaging. In the migration process we want to entirely rethink our user experience and messaging such that the new site is simple, clear, and optimized for conversions. And while a good desktop experience matters, we want a site designed specifically for mobile, not a desktop site optimized for it.
You understand when less is more and clarity trumps quantity.
You have experience & expertise in designing and building themes for either Wordpress, Squarespace, or equivalent.
You have working knowledge in using APIs and embedded forms.
You have an ability to guide non-techies through decision making processes when needed.
You’ll start in mid February and commit to have the project done in less than 3 months (contingencies and dependencies will of course be accommodated). This position can work remote, but there’s a big upside to being able to have work sessions & meetings at our office in Chandler.
This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity - but is an exceptional chance to make a major contribution at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. If you’re still in school, we will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
