    • building custom WordPress REST API routes and endpoints
    • admin customizations such as custom options pages, admin columns, and appearance customizations
  • Ability to work with design specs provided in Creative Suite, Sketch, and InVision
  • A strong understanding of web standards, accessibility and current best practices

Benefits

Work Environment

In 2020 the Office/Bureau team left our offices and switched to a fully remote working style. We operate mostly asynchronously, but still make time to engage socially whether on Slack or Meet. We have no immediate plans to return to an office environment, but as the COVID-19 situation evolves, we may explore the possibility of a shared workspace for occasional drop-in work or meetings.

Who We Are

We believe in the power of information to create meaningful change, and we believe that insightful strategy, good design, and user driven development can help turn information into knowledge. We work with organizations, institutions, governments, and companies to make their knowledge more accessible, more effective, and more compelling, so that their stakeholders can engage with it more deeply, creating greater impact and more meaningful change.
