  • Working tightly with the close-knit MIGHTYminnow team

The Position – what and how:

  • Hours: as needed – full time to part time
  • Hourly pay (based on skill, experience, etc)

  • Looking for folks who strike us as minnows. Small but strong. Shiny. Bright!

You – the skills/traits we’re looking for:

  • Excellent fluency with CSS, including CSS3 and the latest trends/techniques – this is definitely the #1 thing we’re looking for
  • Proficiency with WordPress (the more experience, the better)
  • Eager/quick learner – bonus points to those who can, and will, learn quickly (our Senior Developers will support you on this, just as we were/are supported!)
  • Bay Area local – we need someone who can make it into our downtown Oakland office pretty consistently
  • Reliable – someone who would help us win a tug-o-war (we’re really trying not to use cliches and say “team player”, but someone who isn’t afraid of HARD WORK and who is helpful)
  • Good communicator – desire to help train students in our Website Weekend program is a plus
  • PHP is a plus, jQuery is a plus

Next Steps – moving forward:
