Developer Intern: WWFM is looking for a developer intern who can help develop portals (ideally three – website, and two apps, on iOS and one Android) for a new local food box business. The idea of the business is to give consumers an option to select local farm goods to be delivered in a box to their door.

Experience with Wordpress, iOS, Android, Adobe Creative Suite, or Photoshop is great. An ideal candidate has the experience and ability to design and complete functional eCommerce sites that are secure, user-friendly, fast and drive customer interaction.
Developer Mkt. Mgt.

Knowledge of web dashboard design and interface to mobile data input (iOS) needed. There is no customer or eCommerce interface to this project.
