Job Opportunity » WordPress Developer
Oomph is looking to grow its first-class WordPress development team, and is seeking to hire a full time, aspiring PHP programmer with the desire to become a top shelf WordPress theme and plug-in engineer.
It is important to understand that this is a web engineering position, not a web design position. A successful candidate will be passionate about mastering how themes and plug-ins work under the hood, and writing clean, organized code. If you know how to create a function and a class, and know what a loop and conditional statement are, keep reading!
Candidates with strong communication and time management skills will also be highly preferred. In order for the candidate to grow beyond a basic developer, the ability to effectively coordinate directly with multiple clients in a given week is essential.
While Oomph’s WordPress team will be on hand to mentor and assist the new developer, the right candidate would have a self-starter attitude with an aptitude for independently researching and implementing solutions.
The employee must be located in Boston, Providence, or surrounding areas.
The developer will typically be assigned several deadlines over a given period, and is expected to effectively manage his or her time to meet those deadlines. A successful candidate with good communication skills will be expected to directly manage some clients on a day to day basis as time goes on.
The developer will be expected to stay apprised of news within the WordPress community, most notably new features and changes in WordPress core updates.
Oomph is a digital agency with offices in Providence, RI and Cambridge, MA, dedicated to realizing first-class web and mobile experiences. Oomph is a responsible, green company that offers competitive salaries, health benefits, a retirement plan with company match, casual dress, and flexible hours that include limited work from home opportunities.
