WordPress & Laravel Developer @ Crowd Favorite

Crowd Favorite, a leading enterprise Open Source agency, is looking for a full-stack Web developer to join our Digital Support Services team, creating innovative solutions for our clients and providing long-term support for multiple sites.

To apply for this job please visit apply.workable.com.

This is a remote US-based job, but you must be legally able to work in the United States and be physically in the US. We’re looking for a creative, flexible thinker who has a proven track record of using the right solution for the right job, be it a custom-built Laravel application or creative solutions for WordPress sites. Internal and client-facing communication is critical, so an ability to communicate clearly, especially written, is required. If you are a Laravel and WordPress developer who excels at translating client asks and designs into clear requirements & elegant experiences for visitors and website admins and are eager to collaborate in close-knit teams creating solutions that push boundaries, then we’d love to hear from you.

This is a development position, so code is involved

  • Be ready to review some examples of effective solutions that you created. A link to a Git repo or Bitbucket repo gives us something to look at together.
  • Be ready to discuss them, to talk about them. Walk us through your thought processes. What worked, what didn’t work, etc.
  • Be ready to talk about how long it took to create the solutions. How off was the time it took from the original estimate? Did you give input on the estimate, or was it decided by others and simply imparted to you?

Requirements

  • At least 3 years of full-stack WordPress development
  • At least 2 years of full-stack custom Laravel development
  • Demonstrable experience in PHP software development best practices, code tests, and object-oriented programming
  • Deep experience building cross-browser/cross-platform responsive websites
  • Ability to work roughly US Central or East Coast business hours in order to have some overlap with other team members
  • Thorough understanding of custom theme development and plugin development, including blocks
  • Significant experience with modern Javascript frameworks and front-end technologies such as NextJS, React, and REST or GraphQL endpoints
  • Excellent knowledge of collaborative team development workflows using git and deployment pipelines
  • Strong experience with content migrations from existing websites
  • Experience integrating with common 3rd-party CRM, email marketing, and payment platforms
  • Clear understanding of accessibility principles including WCAG requirements
  • Experience breaking down requirements into clear development plans and budgets
  • Ability to speak and write English fluently
  • Comfortable working productively with a distributed team
  • At ease communicating clearly with clients
  • Experience setting up the infrastructure necessary to run a WordPress site (web hosting, CDN, DNS, SSL, etc)
  • Has an understanding of virtualization and experience with some flavor of virtual environments such as Docker or Vagrant
