The Water Project is growing. If you have the skills we're looking for and desire a challenging opportunity to make an impact, we'd like to meet you.

Based in beautiful downtown Concord, NH - in the heart of New England - our small and dedicated staff thrives on collaboration with partners and volunteers. We inspire ideas and invent tools that equip our supporters to help people suffering needlessly without clean, safe water.

We're a non-profit with the heart of a tech start-up. We tell stories. We strengthen partners. We build solutions. And we change lives, one village at a time.

Are you ready to take on a life changing job?

Web Developer

As Web Developer for The Water Project, you'll create novel web applications that support our fundraising and project reporting efforts. You'll improve on our unique and successful platform - innovating, enhancing and inventing new ways to equip our supporters to do a great good. You'll help shape data into stories that inspire to action.

This opportunity is for those located (or willing to relocate) near our Concord, NH headquarters.


Key Responsibilities

  • Design, develop, test and implement web-based software used by our donors and fundraisers.
  • Coordinate development activities with outside contractors and vendors when needed.
  • Integrate 3rd-party tools and services with our internal systems and supporter tools.
  • Review, improve and test current code and tools.
  • Monitor and maintain our website environment.
  • Recruit and lead volunteer technical teams.

Who You Are

You Can Code
Experience developing complex PHP and mySQL-based applications is a must. Database design/implementation and developing test environments is a plus. An excellent candidate will have significant experience with CSS, JavaScript, Ajax, jQuery, JSON, and HTML and the examples to prove it.

You've Done This Before
We're looking for a Bachelor's in CS or equivalent and at least 2 years of experience developing public-facing web applications. Perhaps you have led or been deeply involved in independent development projects from idea to launch. Maybe you're particularly good at what you do and don't fit any of that. Apply anyway.

You Like Puzzles
Systems integration skills are important. We utilize the best open source and SaaS solutions we can find. We'll expect you to improve our organization's data flows.

You're Organized
You'll raise our game by improving how we code, comment and document our applications. You'll ensure things are secure and scalable. You'll help us grow and be confident we can handle that growth.

You Communicate
This is a team. We excel by collaborating. We coded our entire web presence and back-end in-house, so we know what we're talking about too. You'll be a key player who loves to challenge ideas and to be challenged.

You're a leader.
You can successfully lead software teams that deliver projects on time and within budget. You lead by example with a strong work ethic and pride yourself on getting things done. Experience working with and managing an extended team is a plus.

You're Committed
We do this to change lives. Technology is central to how we do it. You can't wait to get started and see your code impact the world.
