Looking over our statistics, we can see that more and more of you guys are visiting Zelda Universe from your mobile devices. In fact, I’m one of those who frequently uses the site on my phone. While it’s usable and I can read everything I want to, the site isn’t yet optimized for mobile devices by any means. That’s why we’re now looking for people to help create the mobile version of Zelda Universe. If you are a web developer, or you know someone who is, consider giving us a hand. This could be a fantastic opportunity for you!

We need people who can help us build a responsive front-end design working with HTML, CSS and Javascript. Experience with any of WordPress, LESS, PHP or Grunt JS would be a huge bonus. If this sounds like you, let us know! The mobile layout will be developed separately from the current main site layout, so don’t worry about what you see here. We have the designs ready and just need people to turn them into code.

Please only apply if this is something you can commit a portion of your week, each week, to. It wastes your time (and ours!) if we get you all set up and then you disappear. I’d earmark around 5 hours per week, but this is a rough figure so don’t let that put you off. We can chat about your availability when you apply, because Zelda Universe is run entirely by volunteers and we appreciate any amount of time you’d consider giving us (and in turn, the wider community of Zelda fans). You’ll also be expected to work as part of a team, be regularly contactable on our online chat tool and attend our weekly catch-up chats.

Note also that because this is a volunteer position, we can’t pay you for your work. However if you’re thinking about getting into web development as a career, this is a great opportunity to add something to your portfolio and I’m happy to provide references for a job well done.

If this is something you could help out with, please email jobs@zeldauniverse.net with your details, skillset and any previous experience that you’ve had.
