JOB OVERVIEW

We have a website redesign ready to go in Figma (whipped up by our own designer) where most of the design has been implemented.

Some pages contain placeholder content, which likely needs to be converted in the production version. Just as a couple of examples, we currently have placeholders for category pages & blog posts. However, these need to be changed so that our content writers can upload & categorize blog posts without much issue on a regular basis.

We are now looking for a developer to help us with the final touches. Along with helping us wrap up the redesign, this developer will also enhance the site with a list of feature requests that we have.

The ideal partner will audit the existing tech stack and make recommendations about optimizing & simplifying the site. The goals are to end up with a site that is stable, fast, and easy to work with.
