Project Description

Are you an excellent web developer / designer looking for that exciting, creative, career popping opportunity to show off and develop your skills?

Well, we reckon you just found it!

***Who are we?

Incsub is one of Melbourne's leading web startups (if you can call a 6 year old company a startup).

We're involved at the cutting edge of the WordPress-powered web, including:

- Edublogs: The World's largest education blog host (and one of the top 10 blog hosts in the world, by the numbers!)

- WPMU DEV: The leading supplier of premium WordPress plugins & themes on the web... like Bunnings (but better, and far more stylish, new design coming soon ;) for websites.

- And heaps more stuff, like WP Plugins, [url removed, login to view] and a bunch of super exciting new projects under wraps.

Incidentally, we’re currently revamping the design of all of these, so please don’t be put off by the slightly web 2.0 cheesiness!

***So, what does the role involve? Who are we looking for?

Well, we're looking for a guy or gal who can:

- Design and develop absolutely gorgeous work to be integrated with WordPress, both for our businesses and for themes that we'll sell to our customers

- Produce standards compliant, neatly formatted, performance optimized client-side code (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript and various js frameworks)

- Create responsive, touch-device optimized websites & web apps.

- Devise clever fall-back strategies for 'not so enabled' browsers (we understand the value of progressive enhancement, so you won't be spending days on making websites look exactly the same in every browser)

- Have an expert knowledge of jQuery but also be able to write good library agnostic javascript.

- Take on responsibilities, we'll want you to be able to, pretty shortly after starting with us, take on a project through to glorious completion, lead a team, and work independently with folk based locally and around the World.

In terms of qualifications, we’re happy to consider anyone who can do great front-end development & design work, if you have a great degree, then fantastic, but if you haven’t, and can still do great design, html, css and javascript , then no stress, get in touch!

***Job requirements:

- Great knowledge of HTML, CSS & Javascript.

- A good understanding of design & a keen eye for detail.

- At least a basic understanding of WordPress (the more the better)

- An understanding of mobile / tablet device optimization techniques (not just responsive, but also touch events and swipe gestures)

- Good Photoshop knowledge.

- Good knowledge of source control.

***Bonus points:

These aren't required, but are sure to make you stand out from the rest.

- Exposure to web app development

- Working knowledge of php

- WordPress plugin / theme dev experience

***Where? When? How much? etc.

Anywhere! Anytime!

Although if your in Melbourne Australia, we've got a desk or two free for ya - and it would be good if you were able to work *close* to AU hours.

And we're happy to pay good money for quality candidates, we're looking for a long term arrangement here, we want you to be as happy with us as we are with you

Prove yourself, step up, and we'll reward ya!

***Next steps?

- Why you're interested in working with us
