Make a Mission-Driven Career Choice

Mightybytes helps conscious companies, social enterprises, and large nonprofits solve problems, amplify their impact, and meet business and marketing goals. Our mission-driven clients rely on Mightybytes as a trusted strategic partner. Most of them have worked with us for many years.

Core Purpose

Day-to-day, this role will include three main priorities:

  1. Support our team and clients to solve technical problems and ensure high quality deliverables within allotted budgets and timelines.
  2. Maintain the digital products and services we build for clients.
  3. Test digital product and website features to ensure they meet specific project criteria. 

Beyond that, our team prioritizes good collaboration, so there will be plenty of opportunities to positively impact internal projects and processes as well. 

What we’re looking for:

  • 1-2 years experience creating websites, particularly in WordPress + HTML, CSS, etc.
  • Understanding of MySQL, PHP, version control (Git) and other open source technologies.
  • Experience with development tools such as Gulp, Webpack, and Babel
  • Working knowledge of JavaScript and common JavaScript libraries like jQuery, etc.
  • Excellent written and verbal communications skills. 
  • Attention to detail, especially as it relates to software testing and QA.
  • A basic understanding of how to use common design tools: Adobe Creative Cloud, Sketch, InVision, Freehand, etc.
  • Positive, collaborative attitude, a commitment to high-quality work, and a willingness to expand your skills as projects require.

These skills will also be very helpful (but not required):

  • Understanding of hosting websites and staging/production environments. 
  • Familiarity with the WordPress API, React front-end, and JSON.
  • You have customized themes and/or plugins by writing/editing PHP and Javascript.
  • You can research, evaluate, and recommend plugins from the WordPress plugin directory.
  • Basic knowledge of sustainability principles.
  • Experience with deploying WordPress solutions on Pantheon and the Google Cloud Platform.
