WordPress Front End Designer/Developer

Job description

Ready to bring creative designs and engaging learner experiences to students around the world? Our niche WordPress agency helps small businesses, schools and non-profits use WordPress to help people learn. As part of our team, you'll have the opportunity to create online training platforms that make education more accessible for potentially millions of users. 

 

We’re looking for someone with strong WordPress front end design and development experience to create exciting experiences on very complex and high volume WordPress membership, ecommerce and elearning sites. You will also provide development support for our commercial plugins and oversee the maintenance of several large WordPress sites. The job requires significant collaboration with our back end team and, in some cases, clients and end users. 


Extensive WordPress experience is a must, especially on complex membership and ecommerce sites. We will only consider candidates with sufficient experience and a portfolio of design work that we can review.

Requirements

To be successful in this role, you will be:


  • An expert at navigating complex WordPress membership sites with a high number of plugins
  • Adept at building easy-to-use and visually appealing interfaces for responsive websites
  • Comfortable turning wireframes and/or high-level descriptions into polished designs
  • Highly skilled with front end technologies, including HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • Comfortable with WordPress coding standards and use of git repositories
  • Detailed oriented and relentless when tracing plugin conflicts and performing site updates
  • Comfortable with a fast-paced startup environment and switching tasks at a moment’s notice
  • A self-starter who is very productive working independently and virtually
  • A strong communicator, liaising with both internal staff and external clients

The design, development and support tasks associated with this role will primarily be ones that can be turned around in 30 minutes to 1 day. As such, a high level of multitasking and collaboration with other team members is essential.

 

Our team is based in Toronto but everyone works remotely. We are considering candidates outside of Toronto but you must be based in Ontario.
