Front End Web Developer

At NextAfter, web developers are critical in allowing our nonprofit clients to escape the shackles of poorly designed software. Out-of-the-box software solutions rarely allow nonprofits the flexibility necessary to track every donor action or to make design tweaks to improve donor conversion. That is where you come in.

In this role, you will be charged with helping organizations make websites do things they were never designed to do. You’ll apply your HTML, Javascript, and CSS skills toward crafting unique solutions to solve complex problems across a variety of different web platforms.

Because NextAfter works solely with nonprofits to help them raise money and awareness for their causes, it’s also essential that every member on our team desires to positively impact the world around them and cares about the people they’re serving alongside and those at the organizations we help.

The Front End Web Developer supports NextAfter’s efforts to discover what drives donors to give through setting up A/B experiments and optimizing the tracking of various advertising efforts.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities include the following. Other duties may be assigned.

  • Setting up A/B experiments utilizing Google Optimize, Optimizely, and similiar platforms. This will involve writing Javascript, HTML, and CSS to override existing page layout and design.
  • Implementing enhanced tracking to monitor the fundraising and marketing efforts. This is normally done with platforms such as Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics, Facebook, Google Ads, and other advertising platforms.
  • Configuring marketing software such as Mailchimp, Hubspot, and similar tools to serve the needs of the nonprofit clients that we work with. This involves setting up templates, implementing tracking, and making configuration changes based upon requirements.
  • Working with client service specialists to devise strategies and tactics that improve our clients’ performance.

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Advanced knowledge of Javascript (ability to code without relying on outside libraries such as Vue.js, jQuery, React.js, etc.)
  • Experience with HTML and CSS to craft web pages
  • Knowledge of marketing platforms such as Hubspot, MailChimp, and Pardot
  • Experience implementing digital analytics platforms such as Google Analytics and Facebook
  • Knowledge of A/B testing and the associated platforms such as Google Optimize

Education and Experience

  • Training in web development either from a Bachelor’s degree or coding bootcamp
