Experienced WordPress Developer

We are looking for a full-stack PHP web developer who has experience building WordPress & WooCommerce websites.

Our agency specialises in websites that have complex functionality, so projects require extensive configuration & development to meet client requirements. Custom WordPress plugins often need to be written so the successful applicant can identify and implement those when and as required. This is always tied into bespoke designs and we expect the most modern best practices to be used in front-end development too.

The role calls for good knowledge of PHP development and commercial experience developing websites with WordPress and JavaScript is essential. Experience with other platforms would also be regarded as an advantage because we work outside of WordPress as well and are always looking to strengthen with wider team by bringing in new ideas. We are keen to hear from candidates who are enthusiastic about the latest in web development and will take part in keeping our company on the leading edge.

Our developers have a close working relationship with our designers and customers throughout each project's lifespan so the ability to scope requirements, operate as part of a team, and communicate ideas clearly is essential.

This role has the option to be performed remotely for the right candidate.
