We are looking for a WordPress Website Designer / Developer. You will need a range of skills to help us customize and build out templated websites for home improvement contractors. We currently have a WordPress Multisite installation running, and our plugin stack configured. Now we need someone to maintain the platform and build websites for our clients. The ideal candidate will have:
Intermediate to Advanced WordPress skills
- Have a working knowledge of the Genesis Framework
- Working knowledge of Wordpress Hooks, HTML, CSS & PHP. You don't need to be a coder, but you must be able to configure and tweak websites when we have requests that require customizing the code.
- Understand how to install and configure WordPress plugins
- The main plugins we use for site design are Dynamiq Website Builder (http://cobaltapps.com/downloads/dynamik-website-builder) and Beaver Buidler (http://www.wpbeaverbuilder.com/). You will be expected to create websites using these plugins. If you're an advanced WordPress user, the learning curve is fairly minor.
- If you have the above mentioned skills, it is assumed that you know how to perform all the basic functions in WordPress as well like adding widgets, changing menus, adding pages, etc.
- Basic landing page design (mostly template based, but you will need to apply creativity)
- Color matching and color scheme creation
- Basic manipulations, enhancements and resizing of photo images and vector shapes using PhotoShop and Illustrator
- Using the tools mentioned above (Dynamiq Website Builder & Beaver Builder) over time, you will be asked to create a couple basic templates with different navigation bars, headers, font selection, etc.
- Need to have some familiarity and experience with responsive website design. This will not be extensive, as some of the templates have already been established, but you will need to make tweaks to the responsive parts of the template over time.
- Our content team provides content, but we expect you to proof read and not just blindly "cut and paste
You must be able to communicate by email and phone to discuss the projects.
