Wonder Giant is looking for freelance web developer who specializes in WordPress development to join our team of freelancers.

Our Wonder Giant WordPress developer must:
- Have a solid understanding of Wordpress development
- Building themes from scratch following Theme Development Standards.
- Creating and working with Custom Post Types, and Taxonomies.
- Maintaining and enhancing existing Wordpress installations.
- Comfortable migrating sites from local development, to demo server, to live site (and vice versa).
- General Development Abilities
- Responsive Development.
- Using latest standards and Polyfills for appropriate browsers.
- Creating interactive experiences that work on Desktop and Mobile.

We typically love (bonus points):
- Using ‘Advanced Custom Fields’, and WPMigrate plugin.
- Working locally with MAMP
- Using Bootstrap framework
- Creative eye for adding animation effects to enhance an experience.
- Comfortable using Git version control.

In addition to a master skill set, we’re looking for someone we’ll have fun working with:
- A collaborative attitude and a passionate dedication to producing top-notch work, even if that means going a little outside of your written job description
- Reliable - you don’t have to sit around twiddling your thumbs, waiting to respond to project e-mails all day, but we do expect that you’re available when you say you will be and that you keep an open line of communication with the team. We’re looking for someone who is coming to us with ideas to take projects to the next level, not someone we have to chase down for a response.
- You’re motivated to get work done, and you don’t need someone to hold your hand to get something accomplished. You know when and how to ask the right sorts of questions to excel at your role.
- We value the occasional in-person meeting to keep our collaborative energy up, so you have to be willing/able to meet with members our team in Denver every so often (including for an interview).

This isn’t for a particular project, but we’re looking for a talented WordPress developer who is eager for the freedom and opportunity to do great work. Wonder Giant is growing, and we’re ideally looking for someone we can keep in our arsenal of awesome freelancers for future projects. We are flexible, but expect quality work and dedication.
