Senior Frontend Developer (Part-Time)


UniversalGiving® is an award-winning website allowing people to donate and volunteer with top performing vetted projects all over the world. People can volunteer at a community clinic in Uganda or give $25 to help a rural school in Nepal. Unique to UniversalGiving, 100% goes directly to the cause. UniversalGiving Corporate provides Strategy, Operations, and NGO Vetting to scale companies’ CSR programs in more than 120 countries; our Corporate Services allow us to become self-sustaining. UniversalGiving has been featured on the homepage of Bloomberg, Oprah.com, CBS, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times.



UniversalGiving just celebrated 10 years and 10,000 global volunteers matched with NGOs in more than 60 countries across the world. We are now rebuilding our website with new technologies. Our goal is to have a site that can handle partnerships with major media organizations, such as CBS during times of crisis/natural disaster. When a crisis occurs and is featured on TV, people will give through UniversalGiving.  Our site must be robust, have excellent performance and the ability to handle millions of visitors.

We are looking for socially conscious developers who interested in using their skills to make an impact with an innovative social enterprise.


Job Summary:

We are hiring a part-time Senior Frontend Developer to help us rebuild the UniversalGiving website. The Senior Developer should have experience building marketplace websites such as Amazon, Target or Zappos or built a small e-commerce marketplace from scratch. We are going to be using an HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and ReactJS for the new website, so experience with it is a must.

We are open to developers from Silicon Valley as well as the other parts of the nation. The developer will report to the Database Engineer, Tech Committee, and the Website Architecture Engineer. Your role will be assisting the lead engineers on anything they need, either on the frontend or the backend of the website.

It’s a huge opportunity to be a major leader in helping rebuild a social enterprise. We can guarantee the opportunity to work on a large-scale web application and gain valuable experience.

Important Note for Recent College / Boot camp Grads: We are a small organization so we are looking only for applicants with solid senior development experience. If you just finished a web development boot camp, this may not be a good fit for you (or for us). We are only going to be hiring 1-2 developers so we need individuals who have worked on and produced enterprise grade web applications. You will not have the resources here to learn as part of a big team, nor do we have the funds to pay you while you grow as a developer.

Please Note: We already have a strategic plan, fully-functional website, and due diligence on each major feature/component. We are extremely prepared with more than 20 documents for this rebuild. We will guide you on the overall vision and features of the site, though we will give you creative freedom to use your judgment on implementation.
