Web Designer/Developer

The BD Performing Arts Organization establishes the position of Web Designer/Developer to serve at the discretion of the Chief Executive Officer to address the daily needs and strategic outlook for the website and all supporting programs and activities that are part of its operating infrastructure.

BD Performing Arts is looking for a full stack web developer to manage and enhance public web properties as well as internal web-based tools. This position will work with a small-but-collaborative team to push the technology envelope in a highly-visible and fast-paced non-profit organization. You'll own decisions about which web services to use, how to implement new features, and the overall design of multiple related websites. You'll build tools and features from the ground up. Duties include but are not limited to:

General Duties

Site Updates, Maintenance, New Development

Keep the site up-to-date with content and images (schedules, photo galleries, etc.). As new initiatives form, design and develop web components to complement.

Database Management

Maintain and develop the database schema to accurately capture and report information about members, staff, donors, events, media, content, and more. Each department uses the infrastructure in a different way, so this person is the go-to person to get stakeholders the information they need.

Communication

This person should have excellent communication skills as they will be interacting with all aspects of the company and stakeholders in multiple projects. They will lend support to the marketing team, social media/video team, fundraising team, program directors, and events team. This support involves anything from conceptual development of a project, to graphic production, to new website pages, to new website features. Because this position is cross-functional, the person should be able to see the bigger picture and help develop ideas that span beyond what may be initially suggested.

The intent of this job description is to provide a representative summary of the major duties and responsibilities performed by incumbents of this job. Incumbents may be required to perform job-related tasks other than those specifically presented in this document, based on the business needs of the organization.
