You must be proficient in WordPress capabilities. It's important that you have experience with testing of JS, HTML & CSS. Knowledge of preprocessing tools like SASS, LESS, Gulp, React, npm, xDebug, Docker, or similar is not exclusive, but definitely a plus. We use these very often during our workflow, so if you don't know them yet, you should consider learning them soon.


Time spent working would be around 4-8 hours per day. We're focused on Eastern Standard Time (EST) from 9am-5pm. You can work in other parts of the world and during times you wish. However, you will need excellent time management skills, as the team meets once per day to discuss deliverables, and are available from certain time periods for customer collaboration. This means you must be present, and regularly check-in to provide us with your status. Over-communication will be key to your success. People that have great habits in place for time tracking, organization, and self-management are an ideal fit for us.
