It's part of our mission to be a great place to work.
We're a small team that tackles big challenges. We collaborate closely, we support each other, and we're always looking for ways to improve our work and help our clients change the world.
If you're interested in working with us, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We strive for equity in our hiring and transparency in compensation and promotions because we believe that diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect is essential for doing our best work. We are currently looking for a Drupal Developer and a Project Manager.
Giant Rabbit is a mission-driven digital agency. We've been working since 2006 to provide high-quality web, data, and strategy services to organizations that make the world a better place
We're looking for a versatile Drupal developer to help us build and support websites for a wide range of nonprofit organizations. Our clients protect the rights of immigrants and refugees, defend abortion rights, fight climate change, and work for social justice.
Our work is mission-focused: our goal is always to do what is best for our clients. That's a constant source of fresh challenges for us, and we work collaboratively to plan, budget, design, and implement solutions for the organizations we support.
We need a developer who has real-world experience with web development, with some solid Drupal experience along the way.
- You can structure and develop a Drupal site from the ground up.
- You can turn a design into a responsive theme
- You're comfortable administering and configuring Drupal through the GUI, and you can set things up to make it easy for client administrators to do the same.
- You build to last. We stick around to maintain the sites we build, so they'd better be good!
Here are some other things that would be helpful:
- You know how (and when) to code a new module if you need one.
- You've worked to integrate Drupal with APIs from other platforms, like Salesforce.
- You've spent some time in the wild running your own projects or wrangling your own clients.
- Have you worked in WordPress? We support and build WordPress sites, too.
- React experience will be helpful from time to time.
We're a fifteen-person agency with a seven-person development team; we work collaboratively and build our business practices from within. Anyone who works here is encouraged to join the discussion about our practices in general and our work on a specific project in particular, because that's how we get better at what we do.
Because we work with nonprofits, tight budgets are the norm, so it's helpful if you've got some experience working creatively with existing platforms to find solutions that don't require a rebuild from scratch. That's not to say we don't practice sustainable development; on the contrary, we work with our clients for years, so it's important for us to strike a balance between short-term challenges and long-term stability and maintainability.
We always have multiple projects going at once and we're always fielding new client requests, so it's important that you enjoy an environment where you'll be working on several different sites at once. That said, we don't expect you to do the impossible. We understand you've only got forty hours in your week, and your colleagues will work with you to balance and triage your workload.
Work-life balance has always been a central tenet of work at Giant Rabbit. We're serious about a 40-hour work week, with no overtime required ever. (And yes, that means we need to be realistic with our clients about when things will get done, but that's good for everybody.) We're flexible with parents who are juggling childcare schedules, and we're clear and transparent with job requirements and expectations. We make time in our schedule to support each other and to learn new things.
This would be a full-time, fully remote position, with a Pacific Time workday (your eight-hour workday would need to include 10am to 4pm Pacific). You'll need to be legally eligible for employment in the United States. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or Portland, when Covid-19 caseloads allow, we plan to offer optional weekly co-working opportunities for vaccinated staff.
We offer three weeks of paid time off per year, beginning to accrue immediately, along with fully paid health benefits. This position has a starting salary range of $78,000 to $96,426 per year, depending on experience. Specifically, the more your experience overlaps with the specific type of work we do (you've worked on projects of the same scale and type, with teams similar to ours), the higher you'd fall in the range, while candidates with less directly relevant experience would start on the lower end of the range while they learn those skills.
Giant Rabbit believes that diversity, inclusion, and mutual respect is critical to serving our clients and doing our best work. We strive for transparency and equity, both internally and when working with our clients. When recruiting, training, promoting, and compensating staff, we do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or veteran status.
If you're interested, please send a resumé and cover letter to email@example.com. In your cover letter, please explain why the job appeals to you and why you would be a good fit, and let us know your favorite code library and why.
Our recruitment process has the following stages:
- Review of cover letter and resumé
- Code sample review
- Initial phone interview, including some coding challenges and discussions
- Final phone interview(s) with tech lead(s) and other staff
If, upon review of your cover letter and resumé, we'd like to proceed with the next step, we'll send a request for code samples.
We don't require a degree (we have developers with relevant degrees and developers without), and we don't have "X years of this, Y years of that" requirements. If you think you can do this job, you're welcome to apply. We're happy to answer any questions so please feel free to contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are a small agency that works with some fantastic nonprofits. Our clients are fighting for abortion rights, going to court on behalf of asylum-seekers and refugees, and promoting human rights around the world. We design and build beautiful, human-centric websites. We also plan and implement technology to power our clients' fundraising, communications, advocacy, memberships, events, and e-commerce.
Our projects include:
- Website content strategy, design, and development
- CRM selection, implementation, training, and migration
- Systems integration and process development
- Web application development and support
- Ongoing support, training, design, and development
We're looking for a project manager to join our team. Our project managers are pragmatic strategists and compassionate problem-solvers. They're on the front lines of day-to-day requests, and they develop project strategies for multiple clients in all stages of development. They're zealous stewards of client budgets. They're not afraid to get their hands dirty troubleshooting or testing, but they don't lose sight of the big picture. We work on projects of all different shapes and sizes, from large-scale, multi-year application development projects to quick one-off brochure sites or troubleshooting requests from existing clients.
We're interested in candidates with a nonprofit background, and/or candidates who have worked at a digital agency or in some other role providing services to clients, managing expectations, setting priorities, etc. You don't need to have experience with everything we do, but you do need to have experience with some of it. We're looking for a candidate who has been responsible for understanding the goals and objectives for a project, evaluating solutions, developing a cost-effective plan, and guiding implementation. If you've done this work for multiple clients and at multiple scales, that's a plus.
The work we do also requires clear and thoughtful communication to keep partnerships on track and clients engaged. A project manager needs to be able to lead efficient and effective meetings, and explain complex technical options to a non-technical audience. We need to listen to what our clients have to say (and recognize what's unsaid), build trust, and offer proactive project leadership so that our clients can relax and feel confident that we’re advancing their mission.
On the technical side of things, Drupal and WordPress are our favorite CMS platforms. Salesforce and CiviCRM are the CRM platforms we use the most. Direct experience with one or more of those platforms will be important—although again, we don't expect you to have familiarity with all of them.
This would be a full-time, fully remote position, with a Pacific Time workday (your eight-hour workday would need to include 10am to 4pm Pacific). You'll need to be legally eligible for employment in the United States. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or Portland, we gather for occasional co-working sessions.
We offer three weeks of paid time off per year, beginning to accrue immediately, along with fully paid health benefits. We provide nine paid flex holidays, so that employees can choose the holidays that are meaningful to them. We are committed to a good work-life balance for our staff, because that's how we do our best work. This position has a starting salary range of $78,000 - $99,319 per year, depending on experience. Specifically, the more your experience overlaps with our project structure (you've worked on projects of the same scale and type, with teams similar to ours), the more leadership you've had over those projects, and the more you can just step through the door and pitch in, the higher you'd fall in the range. Candidates with less direct experience, who need more support from other folks here to learn the ropes, would start on the lower end of the range while they learn.

To apply, please send a resume and a cover letter to email@example.com and let us know how you can help us do great work for our clients.
Our recruitment process has the following stages:
- Review of cover letter and resumé
- Writing sample review
- Initial phone interview
- Additional phone interview(s) with tech lead(s) and other staff
- Final interview
If, upon review of your cover letter and resumé, we'd like to proceed with the next step, we'll send a request for samples of client communication and written project management deliverables. Applicants who are asked to continue after the initial phone interview will be offered a stipend of $100 for their time.
We're happy to field questions about this position; feel free to send those to firstname.lastname@example.org as well.
