We are looking for expert level WordPress (PHP) developers. You must have experience with Code Igniter, WHMCS, creating custom plug-ins and the ability to work with custom APIs, including ensuring the data collected is registered with the correct taxonomies in WordPress for large data sets.. You will also have an eye for design. We are not looking for people that think they know how WordPress works, we are looking for experts. All of your custom work will be registered as a plug-in and you need to be able to research third party plug-in and understand intricate and complex data arrangements within them with little guidance or supervision.
We are a large web development company in Australia and have had some bad experiences (and some good experiences) with numerous offshore resources from various companies. We know what we are looking for, so please do not waste our time if you cannot meet all of the requirements. The right candidate will be an expert WordPress/php developer with the following attributes:
-Experience modifying 3rd party themes (understanding existing theme options first before hacking changes in code)
-Experience creating custom plug-ins and working with third part plug-ins. (Again understanding the plug-in structure, etc. and being able to work with the existing data structure)
-Experience with WHMCS (and SMARTY)
-Experience working with 3rd party APIs for large data
-Excellent English Communications skills (ESSENTIAL!)
-Exceptional eye for detail
-Ability to adapt to dynamic requirements
-Excellent time management skills
-Be able to work from high level functional requirements and very little guidance and deliver a solution that is highly reliable, works within the existing frameworks and provides an exceptional user experience.
-The ability to think like an end user and consider how a function should work for the best experience.
-Availability on video calls during Australian Western Standard Time (AWST - GMT+8) times
There will be ongoing work for the right applicant.
You MUST have a great commend of the English language language and be able to take instructions at a higher level and deliver the required outcomes. You MUST be available for video calls when required to discuss requirements.
You MUST know how to create child themes within WordPress and work within the framework of premium themes rather than creating custom code unnecessarily. This includes avoiding css hacks and all work you do must retain the mobile responsiveness of the site without additional prompting. Yo must test your work thoroughly before submitting it as complete.
We work on hourly rates, but with fixed hours for projects agreed at the start of each scope.
Attached is an example of the type of instructions you will receive. Please ensure that you review the requirements in detail and respond with:
-How you would approach this task
-How long it would take to implement
-Is anything unclear
Only responses addressing these items will be reviewed.
We are not like some of your clients where we do not understand requirements, so please be prepared to discuss options and accept guidance from us on solutions where necessary.
