WordPress / UI Developer

You’re a rare breed! Someone who likes to sharpen their pencils and sketch out visual solutions as well as get down and dirty with WordPress theming and plugins.

Working with WordPress is your bread and butter – you’re familiar with the framework and have a deep understanding of how the core functions and working with posts, pages and theme settings in the dashboard is child’s play for you.

You have a strong working knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript which allows you to comfortably create child themes to modify premium themes or even create your own themes from scratch. You’ve dabbled with a wide variety of plugins and know how to find the right ones to solve any given problem. When given site designs (or when you’re designing them yourself) you are able to see them through “WordPress eyes” and the path forward to solving them is clear.

You love your standards though. Nothing gets in the way of neatly written code, and beautifully layered and labeled designs. You’re a great communicator and have mastered the art of interfacing with clients over email and the phone. You possess above-average time management skills. You have a great personality with a sense of humour. You’re someone who doesn’t take life too seriously but is seriously passionate about the work you produce. You have reliable transport and are happy to travel to town.
