Freelance WordPress Developer

Remote (Contract). Expires 31/07/2018

Hey there! We’re looking for an amazing freelance PHP/WordPress developer. The short version is that we build a lot of beautifully designed marketing websites on WordPress from ground up, mostly because it’s just an incredibly flexible platform. We need your help to build and deliver these marketing sites to our clients in spectacular fashion.

As a passionate developer, you understand the importance of your craft. Design isn’t just how it looks, its how it feels and how it works. That’s where you come in. You’ll be working remotely, primarily with our design team and director to bring some amazing concepts to life.

We want our clients to be able to edit their websites without us once we’ve finished the project. So, we typically use Advanced Custom Fields Pro to create editable fields throughout the site that our clients can update any time without hassle. Having a sound knowledge of how this plugin works would be fantastic.

We understand you freelance because you like to work on your own terms. We respect that and we’re happy to gel with how you currently work. We care about results, not seeing you work 9 to 5. You can join our Slack team where you’re encouraged to check in with us whenever you’ve got something cool to show, questions for us to answer or just for a nice chat. For longer-term projects, we have standups every Monday morning (or whenever suits you best).

Quality of front-end development is incredibly important to us — we’re only able to execute on our vision for the design if our HTML, CSS and JavaScript is equally up to scratch. We’re big fans of Atom and MAMP but when you’re developing locally, you can use whichever web server solution stack and editor you want. We have a team account on GitHub for our repositories. We’ve also created a lightweight WordPress theme framework that uses Node.js to handle Sass compilation — we’d love for you to use this but we’re also totally open to suggestions.

Now, a bit about you:

  • You’ve spent at least 4 years working with HTML, CSS, WordPress, SASS, JavaScript, jQuery & PHP at tech companies or digital agencies so you know how things work.
  • You’re an excellent communicator who can articulate development decisions and… make words good sentence.
  • You really give a shit about the small details and understand that they can make the biggest impact to a website or product.
  • You have the ability to think high-level about product strategy and vision
  • You have experience in building and shipping applications
  • You have a sick portfolio of examples of themes you’ve built and sites you’ve worked on
  • You have knowledge of data storage retrieval and serialisation concepts, operating systems concepts, compiler basics, databases APIs and oAuth
  • You have strong front-end development skills and care deeply about code quality

Erudito is an end-to-end strategy, brand, design, growth and product studio based in Surry Hills, Australia. We offer a range of services to help startups get from zero to one, whether it’s a massive project or some ad-hoc work.

We’re a small, distributed team which allows us to move quickly and break things… and sometimes put them back together. We like working on bit problems that are hard to solve, yet incredibly rewarding. We invest heavily in processes that allow us to work faster, smarter and more easily, but we never allow the quality of our work to be compromised… ever.

Everything matters here, especially the little details. We’re always reading, learning and sharing — our name, Erudito, means “having or showing great knowledge or learning” so this is particularly important to us. We’re never finished learning, forever students of our craft.

Lastly and most importantly to us, we’re authentic. No fake people, no narcissists, no jerks. What you see is what you get, from our people and our work.

Basically… we design, build and grow cool things.

If you’ve got a project for us and you believe you’re the right fit, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let’s grab a coffee in Surry Hills!
