Jobs

It's part of our mission to be a great place to work.

Taking care of our clients starts with providing a great place for our staff to work. We make time for staff to support one another and learn new things; it makes us better at what we do.

We currently have open positions for a Project Manger and a Web Designer

Project Manager

We are a small company that works with some fantastic nonprofits. We help our clients think strategically, and we work with them to tell their story and put their data to work. We design and build beautiful, human-centric websites. We also plan and implement technology to power their fundraising, advocacy, membership systems, ecommerce, and reporting.

We're looking for a project manager and nonprofit consultant to join our team. You might have experience working for a nonprofit on fundraising, communications, or other advocacy campaigns, or you might already be a freelance consultant or have a history working with an agency like ours. You definitely understand what nonprofits are up against, and you know how to understand their goals, figure out how to make things better, and then shepherd the work through to successful completion with our in-house design and development team. 

Our projects include:
  • Website redesign and content strategy
  • Fundraising campaign design, support, and analysis
  • Analytics audits and reports
  • CRM implementation and migration, including training and report building
  • Long-term ongoing support of website and data systems

Our project managers are pragmatic strategists and compassionate problem-solvers. They're on the front lines of day-to-day requests from multiple clients in all stages of development. They're zealous stewards of client budgets. They're not afraid to get their hands dirty updating a website or testing a bug fix, but they don't lose sight of the big picture. 

We're looking for a candidate with significant experience in some of the areas in which we work, but we also expect to provide mentorship and support. You should have experience planning projects or campaigns, writing them up for collaborators, testing and providing feedback, then delivering. And of course all of this involves communications skills--from emails to calls to on-site meetings to technical documentation and content editing. The ability to communicate to clients about budget and keep a project on track are an essential part of our work. If you've got experience with Drupal or WordPress (our primary CMS platforms) and/or Salesforce or CiviCRM (our primary CRM platforms), that's a plus. 

This would be a full-time position. Our staff work at our Berkeley office on Mondays and Wednesdays, and then are free to work from the office or remotely Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We offer three weeks of paid time off, beginning to accrue immediately, along with fully paid health benefits. 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 salary range of $70,000 to $80,000 per year, depending on experience. 

We're interested in candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds, because different perspectives among our staff make us better at our work. To apply, please send a resume and a cover letter to hr@giantrabbit.com and let us know how you can help us do great work for our clients. At this time we're only considering candidates who are local to the SF Bay Area, because our in-person Berkeley office days on Mondays and Wednesday are important to our work. 

We're happy to field questions about this position; feel free to send those to hr@giantrabbit.com as well. 

 

Web Designer

 
We are looking for an experienced web designer who can help us create beautiful, user-centered designs for our clients. 
 
At our small agency, a designer works closely with project managers, developers, and clients on a wide variety of projects and for a lot of different good causes. At Giant Rabbit, a designer might:
  • Develop a new logo and a style guide for a nonprofit to match their new strategic direction
  • Identify the audience and key actions for a microsite, then design it 
  • Design an online annual report
  • Lead an overhaul of an existing design to make it responsive for small and large screens
  • Create an infographic for a campaign landing page
  • Plan and design usability improvements for a client's web application
  • Plan and design a ground-up redesign of a complex, content-rich site
You will have a wide variety of work on your plate, giving you the opportunity to run feature designs as well as participate in end to end product development for web properties. You'll be closely involved in the process with the support and collaboration of your colleagues, including:
  • Identifying places where design thinking would benefit the user experience
  • Brainstorming approaches to a problem, task, or new feature
  • Collaborating with your project manager to define user groups and needs
  • Reviewing designs with developers for technical feasibility
  • Presenting your thinking behind a design to help clients understand and appreciate "why" certain decisions were made
  • Reviewing your work once it's built and live, and making recommendations to help clients get the most out of the designs we deliver
Giant Rabbit is looking for a candidate who:
  • Has a great eye and a designer's attention to detail
  • Creates intentional, user-focused designs
  • Can design for diverse brand identities of clients in a wide range of sectors
  • Is a great communicator who can speak to the thinking behind a design
  • Has a strong understanding of typography and color theory
  • Can work independently and take ownership of a design
  • Thrives on (or at least tolerates) real-world constraints of time and budget
  • Has a solid working understanding of user experience
  • Wants to amplify the impact of nonprofits who are making the world a better place
  • Has significant professional design experience, preferably at another agency or as an independent contractor 
It would be helpful if:
  • You've designed for CMS-powered sites -- such as Drupal or WordPress
  • You've designed for nonprofits before
  • You have experience with component-based design 
  • You have a working knowledge of HTML and CSS
Giant Rabbit is a small, Berkeley-based web consultancy with progressive values. The organizations we serve fight for human rights, social justice, the environment, public health, safe and legal access to abortion, and LGBQT equality. 
 
We're open to both contract-to-hire or a direct full-time hire, depending on the candidate. We prefer candidates who are local to the Bay Area, but will consider a remote candidate who is an exceptional fit. This position has a starting salary of $75,000 to $85,000 per year, depending on experience, along with fully paid health benefits and three weeks of paid vacation that begin to accrue immediately. We offer a firm commitment to work-life balance, and a flexible office schedule -- we're all in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays, then staff are free to work from home if they prefer. We're interested in candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds, because different perspectives among our staff make us better at our work. 
 
To apply, please send your resume and a link to your portfolio to hr@giantrabbit.com, along with a letter explaining why you're interested in the position, why you feel you'd be a good candidate, and the hex code of your current favorite color. If your portfolio doesn't already make this clear, please note what role you played in the design for each project (were you part of a team? did you build the site or did you work with a developer?), what technology powers the finished site (if it's live), and, if the site was based on a template, a link to the base template (if available) so we can see the ways in which you developed it into something specific to your client. 
 
We're happy to field questions about this position; feel free to send those to hr@giantrabbit.com as well. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!
