Mid-level WordPress Developer

At Crowd Favorite, our culture, our process, and our clients are vital to our work. When you join our team, you’ll quickly realize this isn’t like other jobs. It’s a transformative experience. Good developers can create code that solves a problem. Great developers can also communicate why that code solves a problem, how it does it, and how to implement it.

We are currently seeking a mid-level WordPress developer to join our team in working with a variety of client projects. The work is varied, ranging from complex enterprise-grade sites to small maintenance projects and includes theme and plugin development. We are predominantly client-focused in the Enterprise Open Source space, so our tools include PHP, WordPress, Laravel, Javascript (vanilla, Vue, React, jQuery, etc), CSS, MySQL, REST, and more. 

Our ideal candidate is someone who is:

  • Effective in communicating with team members and has experience using email, Slack and multiple communication channels
  • Comfortable and productive working in a distributed team environment and has had some prior experience as a remote employee
  • Comfortable working in an agency and client-services-focused environment
  • Understands while you are not an Army of One, you are responsible for work assigned to you
  • Proficient in HTML and CSS with a focus on cross-browser support
  • Solid in your knowledge of JavaScript with experience using VueJS and jQuery
  • Very familiar with wp-admin
  • Strong in your understanding of WordPress-specific PHP
  • Able to turn Sketch or PSD files into a WordPress theme
  • Understands that everything has a next step and looks ahead, thinking about the next person who touches the code, document, or trouble ticket
  • Experienced using tools for distributed teams, such as Git, Github, Composer, CircleCI
  • Comfortable using and creating Javascript build tools, such as Webpack and Gulp

It takes time to learn something well, so we would expect that ideally you have: 
  • 3+ years developing (not just working in it) custom solutions using WordPress. In that time, you would have gained:
  • Proficiency in PHP development
  • Command-line MySQL experience 
  • A solid understanding of Front-end web development including HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript

This is a development position, so code is involved. 
  • Be ready to review some examples of effective solutions that you created. 
  • Be ready to discuss them, to talk about them. Walk us through your thought processes. What worked, what didn’t work, etc.
  • Be ready to talk about how long it took to create the solutions. How off was the time it took from the original estimate?

Here’s what you can expect:

The Autonomy. We’re not looking for order-followers. You’ll be given responsibility and flexibility to make your own decisions.

The Balance. Crowd Favorite isn’t a boiler room. We’d generally rather you work effectively and take time to recharge. 

The Favoriteers. You’ll be part of a real team. We’re a tight-knit group that respects and supports each other. You’ll know your team has your back - one for all and all for one!

Is Crowd Favorite the right place for you? If you’re interested in joining our team, get in touch! We look forward to getting to know you.
