Small nonprofit marketing firm (that’s us!) seeks WordPress expert or small firm for ongoing maintenance of two main (and a few mini-) websites and email client (Emma, for now), and for special development projects. Role is virtual, so you can be anywhere in U.S. (need some hours that overlap with us on the east coast).
Skills required include WordPress, HTML, CSS, & some PHP. Familiarity with Thesis & Headway Themes, shopping cart integration, mobile website design and lite Google Analytics preferred. Good sense of layout and color (but we’re not seeking a designer) and Drupal experience a plus.
Special projects in 2013 likely to include shopping cart integration, mobile-friendly tweaks, and membership program software integration. So should have ability to shift platforms when/if needed, e.g. all-in-one platforms like InfusionSoft are under consideration as our programs grow.
If interested, please email with subject line: WordPress Guide to our manager, Amy Kehoe, at amy at nancyschwartz.com. Include a note outlining individual/team skills, site link, and links to sample related projects showing us what you can add to our work. Thank you.
Time commitment is approximately 5 to 8 hours a month for site maintenance. Hours for special projects (at least 3 per year) total approximately 15-40 hours per project.
Work hours are flexible and will be arranged to mutual convenience. Strong and clear communications skills and project management are crucial qualities.
Candidate should be comfortable working with small companies and provide good value and flexibility for services.
Ongoing website/blog maintenance duties include the following:
- WordPress monthly maintenance
- WordPress core application upgrades
- WordPress plugin upgrades (weekly)
- WordPress database and file back ups (weekly)
- Tweaking page & post layouts
- Trouble shooting, e.g. on integrating sign-up forms into landing pages

If interested, please email with subject line: WordPress Guide to our manager, Amy Kehoe, at amy at nancyschwartz.com. Include a note outlining individual or team skills, and sample projects showing us what you can add to our work. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
And please spread the word!
We’re eager to have the right WordPress expert or firm in place—it’s very tough to be without you!
