Who Are We:
The Arc is the nation’s leading nonprofit advocating on behalf of and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), their families and the people who support them. The Arc’s mission is to promote and protect the human rights of people with IDD and actively support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
The Full Stack Developer is responsible for building websites or web apps from the ground up. The Arc seeks a self-directed problem solver, capable of identifying and suggesting paths forward, and proactively recommending solutions to non-technical teammates, without requiring explicit direction. This role will create whole new websites, develop new features for existing sites and maintain existing sites. The sites all vary from relatively simple, brochure websites built on WordPress and hosted on WPEngine (for example, The Arc’s main national website, The Arc’s National Convention) to more complicated webapps built on Ruby on Rails and hosted on Heroku (for example, Center for Future Planning, Tech Toolbox). The Developer will most often act as the sole developer with responsibility for the back end. On a project by project basis, this role may partner with a front-end developer, in-house designers, program managers, product owners, and subject matter experts representing business needs from various teams within the organization. The successful candidate will display initiative and a proven ability to work well independently and across several teams.
