Accessible website agency seeking Project Coordinator

A neon sign on a dark brick wall that says: This is the sign you've been looking for.

Want your work to be a force for good?

Unity Web Agency is seeking a project coordinator to join our small team of creatives who are passionate about accessibility and inclusion. Our project coordinator will work side-by-side with our production team and operations team as we aim to create websites that bring the mission, vision, and values of our clients to life.

This role will be a blend of a typical project coordinator role and a general client services role, meaning that the ideal candidate has the skill to both monitor multiple project schedules and maintain close relationships with clients. The project coordinator will truly be looking out for what’s best for the relationship between Unity and our clients, and will actively work to maintain that relationship.

Important note: We are specifically looking for a new team member who is local to the Raleigh/Durham area of NC. This will be a part-time position (between 25 – 35 hours per week) that has the opportunity to grow into a full-time position.

Why Unity?

Founded by Alisa Herr in 2016, Unity was built on the idea that you should love what you do and the people you work with.

Being a small team, the entire staff works in tandem to not only empower our clients and further the business, but also champion each other. Along with providing professional growth opportunities (and/or funding for those opportunities), we also believe work should be a part of your life, not your entire life.

We offer a flexible working schedule that allows you to choose when you want to work, allowing your work to complement your life, instead of taking over it.

Additionally, Unity aims to address the pay inequities in the tech industry, and we’ve adopted an “equal pay model” to help eliminate these historical inequities due to role, gender, race, ethnicity, age, and sexual orientation.
