"Applicants must have a US tax ID" automatically disqualifies so many of
us in African. Please this is not fair and should be looked into.

Thank you for sharing.
However, we in Africa can't apply due to the lack of US tax ID.

Art+Feminism is seeking to contract a web developer to build a new
website and create data integration solutions in order to
streamline our organizing tools and workflows. The budget for this project
Thursday, July 9, 2020
Art+Feminism is a non-profit that works to improve coverage of gender,
and the arts on Wikipedia. Art+Feminism creates accessible,
Creative Commons licensed training materials and step-by-step organizer
kits to foster the organization of edit-a-thons, events where people of all
gender identities and expressions collectively create and update articles
on Wikipedia, add images to Wikimedia Commons, expand WikiData entries, and
more. These events are often accompanied by programming such as talks and
workshops that contextualize the concerns and concepts that inform the
project. Since its founding in 2014, over 14,000 people at more than 1,100
events around the world have participated in our edit-a-thons, resulting in
the creation and improvement of more than 58,000 articles on Wikipedia.
The audience consists of existing and prospective members of the
community. They visit the site to learn more about
Art+Feminism, download training and organizing materials, watch training
videos, and add their events to the list of edit-a-thons. Our community is
made up of artists, art workers, educators, museum-goers, activists,
librarians, university students, and more, hailing from 83 countries around
New Website Objectives
The objective of our website re-design is to create an intuitive
empowers visitors to utilize the materials we have created
and note their participation in the community.
Our current website, [
is a temporary, stopgap measure, as the previous version became unusable.
The previous website, [
(password: gendergap), was built in 2016, based off of a UX/UI Review (see
Further Links below). It is a custom Wordpress theme that was not built as
a child theme, so it lacks some basic infrastructure (e.g. [blog section](
is produced with a plugin). It hosts training materials and allows
organizers to submit events, which a member of the Art+Feminism team must
review and approve. At present, certain aspects of the code have ceased to
function as designed. For example, previously, when users would submit an
event listing, a copy of the details would be sent via email to the
Art+Feminism general inbox; this function is no longer operational.
Additionally, the use scenarios have changed, as our volume of events has
grown fivefold to about 300 events per year. Some pain points include the
difficulty of updating event posts, dealing with multiple posts, finding
images for posts, linking directly to posts, accurate search/filter of
posts, and the vulnerability of the system sending an email for the
notification (and as the “paper trail” backup). Also, we will need you to
transfer our server from one Dreamhost account to another.
New Website Functionality Requirements
The new theme must have the capacity for visitors to the site to publish
update their event listings, without requiring administrative approval
Each event must be an individual page
Better location sorting for the event overview page
Ecommerce functionality to sell merchandise and receive donations
Easier to use custom fields (e.g. Elementor)
Translation function so that the visitor can read the site in their
Re-design must be WCAG 2.1 compliant
The theme must conform to Art+Feminism Brand Guidelines
The new theme must migrate or preserve existing content, specifically
Build integrations across a series of platforms (Streak, Wordpress, Wiki
Foundation’s Programs and Events Dashboard, Airtable) so that we
can automatically sync data
Site is responsive in mobile devices
You are excited about collaborating on creative, outside-of-the-box data
solutions. You’re not afraid to ask questions and challenge the status quo.
Expertise you currently hold may relate to Wordpress, UX/UI Engineer, UX/UI
Designer, Full Stack Engineer/Developer.
