Partner opportunities for designers, developers and agencies

Get certified to connect with a community of world changers and work on projects that really matter.


NationBuilder Architects

Grow your design business

Architects are certified NationBuilder designers who both design and implement beautiful custom NationBuilder website themes. These range from political candidates, nonprofits, community businesses to organizations.

Demand for designers is high, so if you are already creating great website designs you should apply to become a NationBuilder Architect. We'll hook you up with a free nation to hone your skills and learn our theming system, which extends HTML with the liquid template language, and CSS with SASS. That means you can use regular HTML and CSS, but you also get some cool plugins, variables, and logic in both. Because NationBuilder unifies a people database with a website, there are virtually unlimited things you can do using liquid to create dynamic people-centered designs.

Once you demonstrate that you can build world class themes in NationBuilder using your sandbox, we'll refer customers to you. It's that simple.

Powerful software to bring your designs to life

  • Completely customizable templates
  • HTML extended by Liquid
  • CSS extended by SASS
  • Integrated rich people database

Combining a web platform, communication tool, and people database into one platform, NationBuilder really shines when you’re rallying a community around your organization and work.”
