Do you have extensive expertise in UI/UX? Are you looking to put your skills to work in a meaningful, supportive environment? Do you care about animals? Animal Help Now (AHNow) is seeking a volunteer to lead the redesign of our popular web site and phone apps and the design of our new Pet Rescue app, which gives dogs and cats and other animals a better chance to survive wildfires and other disasters.
Our website and phone apps are accessed about a thousand times a day by people looking for help with wildlife emergencies or conflicts or guidance for any number of animal-related issues. We offer our services over four platforms - web, web mobile, iOS, and Android. Most UI/UX improvements are made across all of these.
Currently, AHNow is testing major revisions to the www.AnimalHelpNow.org/mobile, our most popular platform. These revisions will be ready for a full graphics treatment this spring (2022).
The work will involve interacting with the full AHNow tech team, which includes volunteer developers, analysts, QA persons, and communications specialists. This is the organization's first major overhaul of its mobile website, since launching more than 10 years ago.
If you care about animals and you believe your UI design expertise can benefit the country's best wildlife 911 service and provide our new Pet Rescue app with an attractive and accessible look and feel, please get in touch!
