A-Team Wed Designer/Developer job posting

Are you on the autism spectrum?
Are you a web designer and/or a web developer?

The A-Team is primarily run by individuals with Aspergers Syndrome, for individuals with Aspergers Syndrome, with some assistance from Bridges to Belonging. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming environment to meet fellow adults with Aspergers Syndrome [or ASD – level 1], discuss topics of interest, share experiences, and embrace our neurological diversity.


If you have past experience with either web design, web development, or both and are interested in a short-term contract arrangement to develop the A-Team’s website, please send a letter of interest to the Executive Director of Bridges to Belonging, Donnamarie Dunk at [email protected] indicating your experience, past projects you’ve worked on and links to the websites.


Qualified applicants will be invited to an interview to share details and evidence of their past experience, and will be provided with details of the project scope, design elements, timelines and compensation.


Please note that the project may involve either one contractor skilled in both web design and web development, or two individuals with separate skills and experience in design and development.
