Hello All,

Jim Hopper - [address removed] :
I write all the content for, and we're seeking a replacement for a great colleague. The position requires daily project management (usually just a few emails and maybe a small tweak to the site), some WP programming (but not much, as we have a hardcore programmer to do that), and lots of design work (though the person can bring in other designers for brainstorming, feedback, whatever).

It comes to about 5-8 hours a week on average, with some more intensive design work every two or three months (schedule per agreement).

We're a very collaborative team, and almost everything is done by email and phone (I'm in the Boston area but the ED of the nonprofit is in LA).
