Say hello

Are you a skilled digital artisan whose medium is Javascript and PHP? Do you enjoy getting lost in array/object caves and figuring out the best information architecture for different types of data? Would you rather build your own custom WordPress plugin versus installing a bloated predesigned solution? Have you ever engaged in a debate about the best way to organize a web build repo? If so, this gig is built for you and we’d love your help.

In this role, you’ll work with our development team to bring the interactive things we create for our clients to life, with smart scalable code. That is it, no other fluff or meetings where the output is to ‘circle back’.

This person will be responsible for:

  • Back-end PHP development for custom WordPress based web builds
  • WordPress ACF integrations
  • WordPress custom plugin development
  • Back-end development for custom stand alone landing pages
  • API integration with 3rd party RESTful APIs
  • API creation and development for internal APIs
  • Basic database management and data entry/retrieval

This person must have:

  • A knowledge base of back-end development in HTML5, CSS/SASS, JavaScript, and PHP
  • Have experience with JavaScript frameworks
  • Have experience working with 3rd party API integrations/documentation (post/get)
  • A clear understanding of modern PHP and basic devOps processes
  • Git (BitBucket) knowledge
  • Basic relational DB admin experience
  • Bonus points for:
    • experience with 3rd party CRM integrations (Pardot, Hubspot, Salesforce, Marketo, etc.)
    • additional WordPress REST API and BigCommerce API experience

This is an opportunity to be a “fractional #Vertbag” who gets to be an integrated and important part of our interactive practice – but maintains personal flexibility as an external freelancer. This role will be needed for as much as 20 hours per week on a very regular basis, and the opportunity to grow this into a full-time, salary + benefits role is high if that’s something that interests you. The focus here is on a highly technical, strategic partner who thinks long-term and is excited about steady & sustainable growth with a leading independent digital shop. This is a “first-floor” opportunity with a fast-growing team. If that fits you, don’t be shy!
