About the Pet Cancer Foundation

The Pet Cancer Foundation’s vision is to increase the life expectancy and improve the quality of life of pets diagnosed with cancer. Estimates suggest that 12M dogs and cats are developing cancer every year, roughly 6x the number of humans getting cancer yearly within North America.

We need to do more for our furry friends, and we’re building a large team of distributed, animal-loving passionate volunteers to help them and their families. Our team requires experienced WordPress DIVI developers to help transform our website. That’s where and how you can help us.

The position:

We are seeking volunteer, experienced WordPress Developers who have extensive experience working within the Elegant Themes’ Divi Platform. You will develop and potentially custom-code WordPress page templates from the completed designs of our UX Designers for both desktop and mobile applications. Having extensive knowledge and experience working in PHP is required as some page modifications cannot be completed in the Divi Builder alone.

This volunteer role is project-based, helping to modify approximately 10-20 unique page templates in preparation for a website update.

Duties and Responsibilities

  • Develop/build new page templates using UX/UI developed by the website design team
  • Custom-code page features that are not readily available in the Divi Builder
  • Cooperate with web designers to match visual design intent
  • Adjust designs if/where required to ensure compatibility with the organization’s style guide
  • Utilize only well established and highly rated plugins if/where required
  • Modify plugins if/where required to deliver the intended functionality of the website as designed
  • Integrate data from various back-end services and databases
  • Ensure high-performance and availability and quick page-loading of the website for users
  • Collaborate and cooperate extensively with stakeholders as needed

About You:

You have 3-5 years of experience and an existing portfolio of Divi-built sites to showcase as part of the screening process. Taking great pride in your work, you are extremely detail-oriented and proud of being a perfectionist when it comes to your projects. We hope to find that special person that not only loves animals, but one that recognizes how important their gift of talent/experience and their service will make to the many pet owners and families just wanting another good day with their beloved pet. You have:

  • Deep experience with Elegant Themes DIVI builder
  • Experience working with PHP to create/modify child themes
  • Web design experience with a firm grasp of CSS and other front-end web design skills to ensure consistent style across platforms and browsers
  • Experience managing WordPress-based systems, including the understanding of WordPress database, post-type, and administrative structures, development and administration, and update/day-to-day systems maintenance.
  • Experience developing WordPress plugins and custom-coding DIVI themed websites utilizing PHP HTML, CSS, JavaScript (including ajax) and MySQL.
  • Experience with SSH, SCP, SFTP, and other remote server management tools.
  • Understanding of core web and networking concepts, including IP, DNS, DHCP.


  • This position is virtual and can be completed from anywhere in Canada or the United States.
  • This is a volunteer position and the time commitment is approximately 6-8 hours per week.
  • This project is deadline dependent and may require more hours until completion.
