We require a highly experienced Wordpress developer to help us bridge the last mile of our website's journey. You will be tasked with porting a HTML5 responsive website design into a Wordpress responsive template complete with back-end functionality: Project Gallery, Blog & Contact Form.
All parts of the web design is complete except for the Blog & Gallery which will have their design completed some time in May. Most of the website is static content except for the blog/gallery. If you manage to secure this job, it means that there will be a Part 2 that is happening in the May to June time period under a separate ODesk contract. Upon completion of Part 2, you will most likely be brought on-board again from time to time to update the template at frequent intervals depending on marketing requirements.
You will not be required to perform deployment of the Wordpress template onto the server. What we require is just all necessary Wordpress template files.
