In-house, although remote working/WFH is a possibility for the right person, full-time, permanent.
Our client is seeking a WordPress Developer responsible for both back-end and front-end development.
You should have a strong understanding of the WordPress Codex, Themes and Plugins, in terms of installing, setting up and customising.
Also, a broad understanding of the entire web development process, including design, development, and deployment would be handy.
Designing and implementing new features and functionality
Establishing and guiding the website’s architecture
Ensuring high-performance and availability, and managing all technical aspects of the CMS
Helping formulate an effective, responsive design and turning it into a working theme and plugin.
Providing daily support to our existing WordPress customers on support contracts
Building out 100% bespoke sites on our custom WordPress theme
Other tasks related to website design, development, deployment and support
Working as part of the agency as a whole to develop new ideas, service offerings and growth
Dealing with clients, managing your own projects/time
Skills and Qualifications
Good understanding of PHP, knowledge of using the WordPress functions.php file for functions and hooks etc
Experience building user interfaces for websites and/or web applications
Experience designing and developing responsive design websites (design experience would be a bonus, but is not a deal-breaker)
Comfortable working with debugging tools like Chrome inspector, etc.
Ability to understand CSS changes and their ramifications to ensure consistent style across platforms and browsers
Ability to convert comprehensive layout and wireframes into working HTML pages
Knowledge of how to interact with RESTful APIs and formats (JSON, XML) – again, a bonus, not a must-have
Strong understanding of PHP back-end development, specifically relating to WordPress
