We're Hiring a Web Developer!

Rad Dogz

Rad Campaign, one of the most fun firms that you will ever tech out with, is hiring a Web Developer focused primarily on Drupal and WordPress and based in Washington, DC.

We’re deeply committed to organizations that want to change the world and socially responsible businesses that want to claim their corner of it. We advocate for laws and policies to support women, the LGBTQ+ community, and human rights throughout the world. We fight to conserve America's national forests and wildlife. We mobilize people across the U.S. to fight for labor reform, real healthcare reform, and much, much more.

If you're looking to use your code and work with the best nonprofits and campaigns on this planet (Defenders of Wildlife, Communications Workers of America, Clean Water Action, Human Rights Campaign, Union of Reform Judaism, and a whole lot more), you will love working at Rad Campaign.

Oh, and did we mention that we’re pro-dog and pro-kittens in the office? And that we launched our own app on the side called WeCanResist.It that raises money for kickass nonprofits like the National Immigration Law Center, 350.org, Black Lives Matter, and more, every time Trump tweets?

We also organize and host a series of popular events, like Women Who Tech teleconferences and networking events, the Women Startup Challenge, and the Nonprofit 2.0 Unconference. We conduct our own studies on issues that are important to us, such as voter suppression, online harassment, online privacy, and the legislative war on women.

Come join our rad team and be part of a movement to tackle Trump’s asinine agenda.
