Front-End Developer with WordPress Experience (contract position)

Written on April 5, 2019 at 11:42 am

Createscape Design Studio is a small web design and development company based in Victoria. Currently owned and operated by a solo freelancer/developer, it serves a client base of around 50-60 small businesses and non-profits, providing website maintenance, design, development, and problem solving.

I’m looking to hire a part-time, front-end developer to help with website maintenance for WordPress websites, new site development (using themes and also custom development), and customer support.

You:

  • Have at least 15-20 hours per week available
  • Live in Victoria, Canada
  • Have good written and verbal communication skills
  • Have experience building websites with WordPress.
  • Have front-end web development coding skills:
    • HTML
    • CSS
    • Responsive Design
    • PSD to HTML
    • LAMP stack
    • PHP experience
  • Have a portfolio of work
  • Have at least 1 year experience working in front-end web development
  • Are looking to gain experience in managing and building websites

More about the position:

  • Part Time/Temporary – I’m saying part time/temporary but it has the potential to be more than that.  I expect the next 3 months to be very busy.
  • Flexible work hours
  • Hourly rate negotiable, based on experience.
  • Would offer higher hourly rate for responding to occasional high priority/ASAP client requests (overtime not required).
  • Work from home (Willing to consider renting a co-working desk for you if your home environment is not conductive to productive work).
  • Createscape Design Studio clients are great to work with and are typically polite and organized, but they expect high quality work.
  • Willing to provide training / coaching in managing client websites.
  • This is a contract position without traditional benefits. You would be expected to have your own computer and software.

Tools/Services I use:

  • Reliable hosting, managed WordPress hosting
  • BrowserStack.com
  • WpStagecoach
  • LastPass Teams
  • Sync.com (It’s like dropbox, but Canadian and more secure)
  • Twitter Bootstrap 3 and 4
