Cornershop Creative is seeking a US-based WordPress Designer to join our distributed team.

The core responsibility for this position will be building and styling WordPress-based websites, typically from a premium WordPress theme, for our non-profit and small business clients.

We are looking for a great designer with demonstrable WordPress skills and experience.

This position will be responsible for:

  • Interpreting client requirements and turning them into beautiful websites by creating wireframes and design mockups.
  • Installing and configuring WordPress themes and plugin.
  • Using page builders to implement designs and populate content.
  • Optimizing web pages for performance and efficiency.
  • Maintaining brand consistency across entire sites.

Our ideal candidate is a hard-working, curious self-starter comfortable working independently with little supervision, but also able to work as part of a team that includes developers and non-developers. Since we’re a permanently distributed shop (not just during the pandemic), you’ll get to work from home! Cool, right?

Desired Skills/Knowledge

  • Excellent user experience and web design skills. (If you can’t make things look pretty, this isn’t the job for you.)
  • Experience creating wireframes.
  • Experience building beautiful, content-rich pages in Gutenberg, Elementor, and/or other page builders.
  • Basic understanding of the WordPress theme layer: template files and hierarchy, hooks, WP_Query, and so on.
  • Strong knowledge of HTML5 markup and CSS.
  • Ability to write CSS for cross-browser, responsive design — not just by using Bootstrap.
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors & libraries — particularly SASS.
  • Understanding of basic JavaScript, particularly jQuery and/or the Node.js ecosystem.
  • Familiarity with current (and evolving) best practices in front-end dev regarding semantics, performance, cross-browser consistency, accessibility, speed optimization, etc.
  • Ability to laugh at our stupid jokes (and the occasional good ones).
  • Familiarity with command-line tools like git, gulp and wp-cli.
  • Won’t lose your s#!% if you occasionally get feedback like “can we make the logo bigger?” or “change the padding by 1px,” which may happen despite our best efforts.
  • Willingness to work in a fast-paced environment and work across multiple clients. (We keep pretty busy!)
  • Ability to “put yourself in someone else’s shoes” to consider the client’s (and client’s users’) needs.
  • Remembering to un-mute yourself before talking on conference calls.
  • Being passionate about progressive causes.

Cornershop Creative is an award-winning online services agency committed to listening carefully to our non-profit and small business clients and helping them achieve their goals. Our designs are beautiful, and our websites are creative and innovative. Learn more about us at cornershopcreative.com.
