Experienced WordPress Developer

Team Signalfire needs a talented in-house WordPress developer

Signalfire is seeking an in-house WordPress developer to be a turnkey web design and development resource for our team of creative marketing Guides and Outfitters. We are a team of marketing professionals partnering with clients to utilize effective web and content-centric marketing strategies. In short, we build brands and tell their stories.

Our future teammate will be a pro-active professional with more than three (3) years experience creating successful mobile-responsive, WordPress-powered websites. Our process involves creating themes from PSD mock-ups or hacking pre-developed child frameworks. We strive for user-focused websites that are the foundation for larger marketing programs with fantastic search engine performance.

Signalfire needs an experienced, energetic developer able to be client-facing and manage multiple projects for a wide spectrum of clients. This position will require wearing multiple hats. Our future teammate will collaborate with clients, in-house graphic designers, content creators, and project managers.

Signalfire is a close-knit team of professionals who are as much friends as co-workers. Many of our clients are just as close. Our office is fluent in sarcasm, has too many Peanut M&M’s, and is rumored to have some beer in the fridge. We offer a flexible work schedule, health insurance with vision and dental options, and paid vacation.
