WordPress frontend developer
We're on the look out for a new frontend WordPress web developer to help us with some current contracts and upcoming ones. Your role will be to focus heavily on the final product our design team sends you.
First and foremost, we're looking for someone who is overall a decent, genuine person and happy to have a good chat and beer with us from time to time (beer not always necessary). We're a small but close group of creatives and we're looking for someone to easily fit in our group.
We're looking for someone who can demonstrate at least 10 years of creative experience. While this doesn't need to be specifically on web-development, you need to be able to show you understand the mechanics of agency and B2B life.
- Working directly and effectively from a remote set up with our Director and Creative Director.
- You will oversee and ensure you have sufficient information from each brief to conduct the work to a high standard.
- Completing full WordPress website builds (including the backend set up and taking wireframes and brand guidelines into a physical product).
- Supporting existing websites (whether you built them or not) with monthly maintenance.
- Working on the creation of completely bespoke, unique concept for new and existing websites.
- Auditing and producing reports on our clients current site quality.
- Improving and enhancing current client websites*
*We're fully aware that the task of improving someone else's code is a big no-no in the development world. This task would align closely to your auditing and in most cases require a new build for the client. In some cases, this improving is adding very basic functionality to their existing site.
Some of the projects you'll work on
The first project you will work on is our client Bushman Tours.
This platform requires constant improvements in the front end and functionality of the site. In fact, the client will soon be pivoting their business model offering you the chance to be a critical cog in new concepts and ideas they have.
What makes this opportunity perfect is that the hard work has been done. Our previous developer (who now heads up design at Hatch), has built an award-winning product. Your role will be to add to this and continue to develop the solutions Bushman Tours is hoping to achieve. Some immediate tasks will be:
- Creating a super navigation menu
- Swapping and merging some key widgets on the site
- Creating automation and basic API processes
- Testing and checking for bugs and broken links
- Adding to the design of the current tour pages
If you are successful with this application, you'll get a full brief and will work on one task at a time.
How it works at Fixinc
As a contractor, finding work can take up a considerable amount of time while you're also juggling project deadlines. Fixinc is a collective of creatives that worry more about the work than the clients. Our founder, Ollie, will go out and obtain the work and project manage it alongside our Creative Director, Lara. We hope at any given point, you will always have at least one project to work on with us. As we grow your workloads and relationship with us, it is always our goal to give you a full-time amount of exciting and rewarding projects.
Freelance / contractor agreement
Please note, this is not a full time employment position. You will be subcontracted by Fixinc to work on projects we have won. This means you are welcome to work on your own projects and work your own hours on the basis you are able to commit to the agreed scope of work and timescales we sign off with the client. (You will have the opportunity to discuss your available prior to each project).
As a sole-priproter, business owner or freelancers, there are some minimum requirements you must have. This includes a certain level of insurance, the right equipment and the right experience. We will ask you to provide evidence on this within the application process.
Send us whatever you think is necessary to get this opportunity. This may include a CV, portfolio, website or similar.
