Web Consultant

Do you like problem solving?  Do you like creating websites with Notepad just because you can? Does the opportunity to try a variety of technologies intrigue you? If so, Level Access may be the right company for you.

The mission of Level Access is to support organizations in ensuring that their digital systems - web sites, web applications, Mobile applications, software, hardware, and services - are accessible to users with disabilities. A Web Consultant is the person who works with these organizations to review their digital systems then provide the real-world solutions that have a positive impact on the experience of all their users, especially those with disabilities.

Qualifications

  • Technical Experience – Candidates must understand the core elements needed to build a web site or web application, e.g., you understand what is needed to create a basic web page without tools like Dreamweaver, Eclipse, or Bootstrap. A good understanding of JavaScript and CSS are also required. Experience developing non-web based user interfaces, PDF documents, and regulations, such as Section 508, the ADA, and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 is a plus.
  • Testing Focus – A desire to review, validate, and provide solutions to improve user interface compliance with accessible design specifications is critical.
  • Communicative – Candidates must be able to clearly and effectively communicate with clients in both written and verbal fashion. Written communication should show a high attention to detail. Verbal communication should be formal and indicate the ability to communicate complex topics concisely. This position interacts directly with customers and it is imperative that it inspires confidence when speaking with customers.
  • Organized and Disciplined - Level Access has a culture of disciplined execution over a long period of time. We seek to hire and advance people that have this focus and can execute activities on their own, over a long period of time without a large amount of management oversight. A candidate that will succeed in this environment must have a desire to grow in the company over time and seek to build towards big goals.
  • Excellence Focused - At Level Access, we have been successful because we constantly seek to be the best in our market across all of the products and services we provide. Think the Ritz Carlton, not the Holiday Inn. In practice, that means we both charge more and invest more, with the end goal of providing far more value per dollar spent than our competitors. It also means that we focus on a very high level of quality and hold ourselves accountable for delivering against that level of quality.

Responsibilities

  • Testing – The Web Consultant will test client’s systems against specific manual and assistive technology tools. The Web Consultant will enter test results into Level Access’s Accessibility Management Platform (AMP) – the industry’s first on-demand solution that integrates the business and technical aspects of complying with regulations, such as Section 508, the ADA, and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.
  • Remediation – The Web Consultant will be required to provide realistic technical guidance to clients that can be integrated into current or new user interfaces.
  • Test Set Definition – The Web Consultant will work with the client to determine the boundaries of the testing environment by identifying a representative test set of the user interface components found in the client’s system.
  • Reporting – The Web Consultant will deliver testing results to the client and will participate in conference calls and follow-up discussions in order to create a road map to improve the accessibility and usability of the client’s IT system
