We’re looking for a full-time Web Designer to join our team. You’ll be working directly with our nonprofit clients, designing themes for our nonprofit website platform and supporting our team’s various ongoing marketing initiatives.
If you’re ready to apply, fill out the form below.
Wondering about the benefits of joining us at Wired Impact? Here are a few of them:
- Health, Dental, Vision, Life and Disability Insurance.
- Flexible Work Hours. Head to a late afternoon baseball game. Sleep in after a night of working late. Get your hair cut during the day because it’s less crowded. We care much more about getting great work done than clocking in and out each day.
- Work from Anywhere. Work from a coffee shop, the office or at home when you need to. We’re pretty flexible (although most of us in St. Louis choose to come into the office every day).
- Take Vacation When You Need It. We don’t track vacation days. If you feel like you need some time off, you should take it. Or maybe you want to work from another city for a week around the holidays? We can most likely make it work.
- Your Happiness Matters. We believe a happy team means better work and ultimately better results for nonprofits. Have something in mind that’ll make you happier? We want to hear it.
- Lots of Learning Opportunities. We’re always trying out new things and we want our entire team to be learning new techniques and strategies every day. We’re open to ideas on what you’d like to learn and how we can help.
- Great Ideas are Heard and Feedback is Provided. Have a great idea? We guarantee it will be seriously considered. Want feedback? We’re happy to provide it. Got feedback? We’d love to hear it. In fact, we meet weekly to discuss what’s working well and what we can improve moving forward.
- Unique Office Space in Downtown St. Louis. Our home base is at Covo, a new office space in a converted bank building in downtown St. Louis. The space is beautiful. There’s a roof deck, pool table, weekly community happy hour and yoga during lunch.
As a Web Designer at Wired Impact, your responsibilities will include:
- Sketching, concepting, wireframing, and ultimately designing website prototypes for our nonprofit website themes

- Working closely with our content strategists to create visuals and support our internal marketing efforts that provide educational content to 30,000+ nonprofit marketers each month
