N.B. Communication will be via Yahoo IM or Gchat (NOT Skype - let me say this again NOT SKYPE)
I am looking for a team to build wordpress websites for clients with both in-depth Wordpress theme experience and also for fast turn-around using existing themes.
i.e. both medium - large projects as well as micro-projects
I will be hiring multiple people for ongoing work and you will be working with both pre-purchased themes and custom designs - so coders will need to be able to liaise with designers to make sure they aren't designing something that isn't usable or practical once it is converted into a theme.
If you wish to take on more responsibility...
If the work goes well, there is the option for the role to grow to help management of other coders, so I am opting for a person to take on an ongoing role to take more responsibility for their management.
The successful applicant will be using tools from leading wordpress premium vendors, such as themeforest.com etc. to maintain the websites.
You will be responsible for installing, configuring and ensuring all plugins and addons on the sites are kept up to date and operational.
You will fix bugs and address problems with these wordpress sites based on support tickets submitted by users of those websites.
Based on previous experience, this will entail 40 hours in the first month and 15 to 20 hours/month after that for these websites. A bonus will be given when the sites are returned to profitable status, which will be ongoing as long as you hole the position.
Once these sites are producing sufficient income again, this role will move to a full-time position.
The ideal person for this position...
Ideally you will leave and breathe Wordpress! Skills in html, php and MySQL are an absolute must for this position, as will your ability to think beyond instructions to avoid problems.
If you do not have familiarity with WHMCS, you will need to learn at least the basics.
Skills in jquery, facebook development, Phone App development and AJAX will be HIGHLY advantageous.
You will be self-motivated and a GREAT communicator, so if English is a struggle for you, then please do NOT apply.
You are not afraid to ask questions when you are not sure about something - I would rather see 10 annoying emails a day from you about something you are unsure about, than get 100 emails from customers complaining about the websites being down ad they want their money back....
When you apply for this position, please state the hourly rate you wish to be paid and I, in turn will send links to the websites.
