  • Job #WPHIRE002230

Cornershop Creative (https://cornershopcreative.com) is seeking an awesome, U.S.-based WordPress developer to join our 20+ distributed team.

The core responsibility for this position will be building and styling WordPress-based websites, typically from a premium WordPress theme, for our non-profit and small business clients.

We are looking for a great designer with demonstrable WordPress skills and experience. This position will be responsible for interpreting client requirements and turning them into beautiful websites by creating wireframes and design mockups; installing and configuring WordPress themes and plugins; using page builders to implement designs and populate content; optimizing web pages for performance, accessibility and SEO; and maintaining brand consistency across entire sites.

Our ideal candidate is a hard-working, curious self-starter comfortable working independently with little supervision, but also able to work as part of a team that includes developers and non-developers. Since we’re a permanently distributed shop (not just during the pandemic), you’ll get to work from home! Cool, right?

Desired Skills/Knowledge

  • Experience building beautiful, content-rich pages in Gutenberg, Elementor, and/or other page builders
  • Basic understanding of the WordPress theme layer: template files and hierarchy, hooks, WP_Query, and so on. Experience creating or writing a plugin a PLUS
  • General knowledge of PHP and MySQL
  • Strong knowledge of HTML5 markup and CSS
  • Strong knowledge of SEO best practices and WCAG 2.1 guidelines
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors & libraries (particularly SASS)
  • Understanding of basic JavaScript, particularly jQuery and/or the Node.js ecosystem
  • Familiarity with current (and evolving) best practices in front-end dev regarding semantics, performance, cross-browser consistency, accessibility, speed optimization, etc.
  • Wireframe, UI experience and excellent web design skills not required but a PLUS
  • Ability to laugh at our stupid jokes (and the occasional good one)
  • Familiarity with command line tools like ssh, git, gulp and wp-cli
  • Won’t lose your s#!% if you occasionally get feedback like “can we make the logo bigger?” or “change the padding by 1px,” which may happen despite our best efforts
  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced environment and work across multiple clients (we keep pretty busy!)
  • Ability to “put yourself in someone else’s shoes” to consider the client’s (and client’s users’) needs
  • Remembering to un-mute yourself before talking on conference calls
  • Being passionate about progressive causes
