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...**
