WordPress Developer

Details

– Accepting applications

Cornershop Creative (https://cornershopcreative.com) is seeking an awesome, U.S.-based WordPress developer to join our distributed team.

The core responsibility for this position will be building and styling WordPress-based websites and applications for our non-profit and small business clients. This position will be responsible for things like setting up WordPress custom post types, fields and taxonomies; coding HTML, CSS (SASS), and JS for custom themes; and styling & configuring pre-built WordPress themes for our clients. Additionally, this position may be responsible for developing and maintaining custom plugins.

Our ideal candidate is a hard-working, curious self-starter comfortable working independently with little supervision, but also able to work as part of a team that includes developers and non-developers. Since we’re a distributed shop, you’ll get to work from home! Cool, right?

In a nutshell, we need someone who can take static designs (i.e. PSDs) combined with written functional requirements/specifications and turn them into top-notch WordPress websites. That means the things we’re looking for include:

  • Strong knowledge of HTML5 markup and CSS3
  • Significant experience with WordPress theming: template hierarchy, hooks, WP_Query, and so on
  • Ability to write CSS for cross-browser, responsive design (not just by using Bootstrap)
  • Solid JavaScript skills (particularly in jQuery and/or the Node.js ecosystem)
  • Familiarity with current (and evolving) best practices in front-end dev regarding semantics, performance, cross-browser consistency, etc.
  • Ability to laugh at our stupid jokes (and the occasional good one)
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors & libraries (particularly sass)
  • Familiarity with command line tools like git, gulp and wp-cli
  • Won’t lose your s#!% if you occasionally get feedback like “can we make the logo bigger?” or “change the padding by 1px,” which may happen despite our best efforts
  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced environment (we keep pretty busy!)
  • Ability to “put yourself in someone else’s shoes” by thinking about the client’s and client’s users’ needs
  • Ability to review designs and anticipate questions, problems and issues with responsive/interactive elements that may not have been fully considered
  • Superb written & oral communication skills

Other stuff we’d love it if you’re good at, but aren’t requirements:

  • Photoshop and designing for the web
  • Working knowledge of nonprofit CRM tools such as Salsa, Luminate Online, Engaging Networks, Blue State Digital, and Classy
  • Making obtuse geek-culture references
  • Remembering to un-mute yourself before talking on conference calls
  • Being passionate about progressive causes
  • Writing bash scripts and performing other devops/Linux sysadmin kinds of stuff

Cornershop Creative is an award-winning online services agency committed to listening carefully to our non-profit and small business clients and helping them achieve their goals.
