Over the past year, MoveOn has significantly expanded its paid
merch operation, all of which is run through store.moveon.org,
hosted by Shopify.
The MoveOn store was built many years ago at a time when paid
merch offers to our members were very rare, and as such is no
longer meeting our higher volume needs.
We are looking to bring on a technical contractor with expertise
in the Shopify platform to evaluate our existing store and backend
functionality, learn our needs and current pain points, suggest
changes and upgrades, and then lead on implementing those
The exact length of this project will be determined in
collaboration after evaluating the extent of upgrades
RFP submission date: Please submit to
firstname.lastname@example.org by February 15, 2023 and put
“MoveOn storefront upgrades” in the subject line.
Scope of work:
Conduct an analysis of the existing
MoveOn storefront (both front and back end functionality) and
propose upgrades and changes to the UX, design, technical
functions, reporting, etc.
Create a project plan, including
additional budgetary needs if necessary, and present to the Team
Lead for approval.
Implement the changes / upgrades that

to implement all backend changes on their own, and ideally would
also be able to lead on frontend design changes. MoveOn’s tech and
product teams may be able to provide some support, but the person
