Who we’re looking for: A WordPress website manager (front and back ends) who can work with our team to develop content and additional pages for the website as the organization grows, while also optimizing the website for goal conversions and SEO. We are looking for somebody who will join the team for the long run and who can wear lots of hats as we scale.

Better Because Collective is a 100% volunteer-run mental health-focused nonprofit organization founded in January 2019. We're a small team of dedicated volunteers working remotely around the world.

Due to the resource demands of hiring and onboarding new volunteers, we prioritize volunteers who are interested in a long-term commitment. Please let our recruiting team know upfront if you do envision yourself volunteering with the Better Because Project for at least 6 months.

Communications:
We're a small team of dedicated volunteers working remotely around the world. As such, open communication and clear expectations are necessary to get things done in a timely manner.

  • General website content maintenance - updating copy, images, tags, alt text, spelling errors, broken links, etc.
  • Working on technical fixes, updates to the website, design tweaks, and other ongoing web development needs.

Someone who would be perfect for this role would have:

  • Ability to work with a remote team using Discord, Trello, Google Drive, and Zoom.
  • Ability to work independently and set realistic deadlines.
  • Ability to communicate openly and not take on too much.
  • Ability to become a team member and the willingness to help with other areas of the nonprofit that we might need help with as the organization grows.

What’s in it for you? Be an integral part of a new nonprofit organization and join a passionate all-volunteer team working to empower people and support discussions around mental health.

  • Develop your website building skills and gain more digital marketing skills;
  • Learn by collaborating with our team
  • Add to your resume.
  • Receive a professional recommendation from the website manager and executive director;
  • Network with team members from around the world;
  • Create and support discussions about mental health and post-traumatic growth.
