Want a career where your work matters? Where your skills make a real impact on an important problem? Where you change people's lives for the better?

For more than 60 years, the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) has been the leading health organization dedicated to fighting kidney disease. From patients and their families to those at risk, we take pride in knowing that our mission is positively impacting the lives of millions of people affected by kidney disease.

As the team lead for Web Services at NKF, you will partner with a variety of stakeholders to translate ideas into impactful digital experiences. You will build and maintain high-quality digital products to support NKFs mission and constituents.

  • Enforce code and design standards for maintainability, usability, performance, and accessibility.
  • Contribute to product and technical documentation.

  • Experience with Git and GitHub.
  • Experience with Pantheon.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills; ability to handle difficult conversations with tact and grace.
  • Familiarity with platforms like Google Analytics, Salesforce, HotJar, and Optimizely.
