Open Position: WordPress Developer

Position: WordPress Developer
Location: Remote (we’re in USA – Mountain Time Zone)
Hours: Part-time / flexible (~20 hours / week)
Salary: $20 – $30 USD / hour

Description: We’re looking for a full stack WordPress developer to join our team. You’ll work closely with our design team to build custom WordPress themes and websites, based on provided Figma designs and requirements. This is a front-end heavy role, with some backend skills required. You’ll also be responsible for managing hosting for our clients’ websites.

Required skills:

  • WordPress theme development: Build custom WordPress themes and websites (with the use of a starter theme like Roots Sage — not a page builder, like Divi or Elementor).
    • Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)
    • Custom Post Types
    • Custom Gutenberg blocks
    • Page speed optimization (Google PageSpeed, GTmetrix)
    • Plugins / integrations (maps, iCal calendars, payments, booking software APIs)
  • WordPress admin customization: Along with building custom themes and websites, you’ll also be customizing the WordPress backend—including the WordPress Customizer options (e.g., using Kirki), and the admin panel of user websites—to make it easy for clients / users to edit and manage their websites.
  • Modify WordPress plugins: Huge plus if you can also modify and extend plugins (like WP Ultimo).
  • Hosting: Manage migrations, website launches, DNS settings, and WordPress plugins and core updates.

Other preferred skills:

  • Clean, organized, semantic code
  • Communication — proactive and consistent (we’re on Slack, M-Th, ~10AM-6PM MT)
  • Attention to detail

To apply:

If this sounds like the right job for you, please include the following with your application:

1. Links to your Github, WordPress profile, and/or personal website
2. Links to 1-3 examples of WordPress websites, themes, or plugins you’ve built

Thanks for your time—we look forward to hearing from you!
