Job description

Apply Apply
Rareview is an award-winning design, development, and marketing agency headquartered in Irvine, CA. 

We are looking for a contracted (1099, not W2) Front End WordPress Developer. This is a remote position and you must reside in the United States (U.S.). You must be able to dedicate between 20-40 hours per week to this role. This is a client-facing position, thus you must be comfortable taking with clients and explaining timelines and how we can build different features and functionality. 

** Please take a few minutes to read the entire job description before applying**

Typical Day

Our design team completes a beautiful design for a new website and provides a Sketch file to our developers with Desktop and Mobile versions. This role will take that design and code a custom theme in WordPress, starting from scratch, using virtually no plugins or pre-built themes/editors. You will build the site using Gutenberg blocks and create the front-end pages with animation in CSS/JS. There's always complexities in our designs, including ecommerce or retreiving data via API, so you'll work with our other developers who can do more of the heavy-lifting on the back end side. But you should be able to create a beautiful, fast, accessible, custom WP website exactly as designed in our Sketch files. We're a pixel-perfect team, so nothing is acceptable unless it matches the design. 

** If this is you, please continue to read...**
