Front-End Web Development Contractor
Headquarters: Brooklyn, New York
Freedom of the Press Foundation is seeking a contract frontend developer to implement frontend web components for our websites including the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker, SecureDrop.org, and Freedom.press.
We’re a small team of web developers working on high impact projects. The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker is the canonical source of aggressions against press freedom in the U.S. SecureDrop.org is the website for our open source whistleblower submission platform, which is used by major news organizations in the U.S. and abroad.
Our ideal candidate knows React and, though not necessarily a designer, can take partially mocked up or specified features and flesh them out into working components that fit within our design system.
The contract is for 6 months, with a possibility of renewal. You may be in any time zone but we prefer candidates who are available for communication during afternoon work hours EST.

The contractor will need to cover all legally required deductions, taxes and benefits out of this amount. FPF is prepared to allocate a fixed budget of $40,000 to this initial contract.
