  • Familiarity with Bootstrap or other UI toolkits/themes

  • Experience with Git

  • Passionate about the non-profit sector, wanting to help donors and charities find each other and make better decisions.

About us

Charity Navigator is the world’s largest and most-utilized independent charity evaluator. The organization guides informed giving by evaluating the financial health, accountability, and transparency of charities and by providing data about 1.7 million nonprofits, accessed more than 10 million times annually. Charity Navigator does not charge the organizations it evaluates, ensuring unbiased evaluations, nor does it charge the public for this trusted data. As a result, Charity Navigator, a 501(c)(3) public charity itself, depends on support from individuals, corporations, and foundations that believe it provides a much-needed service to America's charitable givers.


This is a short term contract position. We expect the consultancy to be full-time for 4-6 months, though we would be flexible for the right person. There may be the opportunity to transition to a salary position if both sides are interested.
