We are an innovative nonprofit creating exciting new projects to help people in great need. We are looking for a user experience person to help us do one or more of the following:
* create layouts and mockups of new pages for our new websites and strategize the workflow between pages
* make improvements to the UX / UI of existing mockups
* get feedback from potential users about their experience of the mockups
If you're able to do one of the above and not the others, we can still consider you for this role.
Telecommuting virtually from anywhere in the world is possible. The times of day you do the work are totally flexible.
To work on these websites, you must have at least 6 months of full-time UX experience. For example, two years doing 10 hours of UX a week is 6 months of full-time experience. If you don't have UX experience, we can also consider you if you have at least one year of web design experience.
If you want to do this, let us know how much experience you have with UX / UI and or with design, and what skills you have. If you can include a resume (either a link or an attachment) or a link to a LinkedIn profile, that would help. Lastly, let us know how many hours per week and how many months you can do.
If you want to get a sense of what we're doing, here are some of our websites that are live, in beta or in initial development. They fall into three broad groups:
1) a group of innovative websites to provide other nonprofits (and their supporters) with unique tools they can use to raise money for their causes. This link below gives an overview: click the "See More" buttons at the end of the sections. In the future, each logo will go to a unique website focused on that fundraising tool. About half of the logos are already linked to sites that are either done or in progress:
A few examples are:
This is a sample of how a person's fundraising page looks - the format is the same at most sites, but each has a unique logo, activity and color scheme:
We've ported the entire IRS database of 1 million nonprofits to our website, so all 1 million nonprofits will automatically have pages at all of the fundraising websites. E.g. -
We're also creating these tools to give people fundraising opportunities every season and holiday of the year: http://calendarforgood.org/
2) new projects to fight global poverty, slavery and climate change. You can see the logos of many of them at these links. In the future clicking on each logo will go to a unique website:
There are other climate change websites we're creating and the best ones are not up there yet.
One of the anti-slavery websites is a modern-day equivalent of the Underground Railroad. You can see the video we made for it and a draft of the website here - when we launch, it will be at .org -
3) an existing website that provides news related to making the world a better place covering various topics including nonprofits, human rights, extreme poverty, climate change, giving and volunteering: http://DailySource.org. This site has existed for over 14 years. You can see a few of the team members here: http://DailySource.org/about/team.
