Position: Team Webmaster

Work from home helping to improve the network of websites for this “all-in-one media company”. You’ll be using your HTML, CSS and PHP skills as well as your knowledge of web design, FTP, CMS and image editing.

Company: UNICEF
Location: Home-based / Off-site

Passionate about both promoting children’s rights and web development? In this remote role, you’ll be working on the upgrade of UNICEF’s search results page and CMS. A good foundation in HTML and CSS is key, and JavaScript and other scripting languages a plus for this opportunity with a world-famous non-profit.

Fight against human trafficking and improve women’s rights as a digital communications specialist for Polaris. You’ll be supporting online outreach and marketing by creating website, email and social media content as well as developing online campaigns, working on site redesign, training staff and much more in this multi-faceted position.

    Greetings! Very useful advice within this article! It’s the little changes that make the greatest changes. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Hi, Geraldo! Thanks for your question.

      The Skillcrush site is pretty customized, but it’s actually built on WordPress. And you can set up your own WordPress site for free (and really easily) using https://wordpress.com/

      If you’d later like to learn how to customize sites and take even more control over them, we’d love for you to join us for the Skillcrush WordPress Developer Blueprint (http://skillcrush.com/blueprint/freelance-wordpress-developer).

      Hope that information helps and that you have a great time building your blog!
