Freelance developers

As a growing business, we’re always looking for experienced and passionate WordPress developers to bolster our in-house development team.

Depending on your skill set, we’d like you to be responsible for both back-end and front-end development, creating WordPress themes and plugins. You’ll know a good user experience when you see one and will instinctively think about the best ways in which our customer administrators will be able to maintain their content over time.

Hopefully you’ll be able to demonstrate through a portfolio your development experience in a WordPress and PHP environment.

We want you to contribute to our best practices way of working and it would be nice if our other developers could contact you for guidance and to help solve problems too.

We have natural flexible working and family-friendly policies which fit well with a freelance lifestyle.

Our project managers always provide well-written scope documents and (where needed) high-fidelity designs and low-fidelity wireframes.

Interested? Send us your CV and a covering email and we’ll be in touch.
