We’re searching for a front-end developer who can work their magic to help us build pixel-perfect sites from design references.
Why work at Yoko Co?
Mission. We exclusively work with clients who make a positive impact on the world. This is a chance to build things that help create a better place for all of us.
4-Day Work Week. We treat our Mondays as flex days, meaning that you can take most of them off if you plan your work appropriately.
Holiday Breaks. We’re closed for nearly a full week at Thanksgiving, and two weeks at the end of the year.
Best Place to Work. For two years running, we’ve been named a Best Place to Work by the Inc. 5000 and Washington Business Journal.
Developer Growth. This role is for a junior to mid-level developer, but in the course of your work, you’ll also get exposure to complex development projects and top software engineering practices. This is a great place to take your skills to the next level.
We’re committed to having a positive impact, doing truly incredible work, and supporting the balance each member of the team needs to thrive. This is core to our DNA, and in every decision we make. If you share these values, you’ll find this an amazing place to contribute.
In this role, you’ll:
Write clean, semantic, well-commented code
Deliver fully-functional layouts that accurately reflect design references and prototypes
Work on multiple projects at once
Collaborate with other developers, designers, project managers, and strategists
Utilize our WordPress stack and workflow to build websites based on design concepts, and help us continue to evolve and optimize these things for future projects (Currently, this stack includes a custom theme, specific plugins and tools like ACF, and the Beaver Builder/Themer visual layout building tools.)
Help expand our codebase and tools, contribute to strategy and planning, participate in code reviews, and grow alongside our development team
You’ll do well if you have these skills:
About 2 to 4 years of experience with building WordPress websites
Excellent HTML and CSS skills
An eye for design and the attention to detail needed to accurately translate concepts into beautiful, fully functional layouts
An appreciation for page builder tools (like Beaver Builder), and using them in an intelligent way to empower clients and speed up workflow, while minimizing sacrifices
Functional knowledge of UI/UX best practices
Bonus points for experience with Git, continuous deployment, Beaver Builder/Themer, React.js, UI design, or anything else you think might be useful.
What you get:
You’ll receive a competitive salary, unlimited time off, a flexible schedule, the ability to work wherever you want, a personal development budget, federal holidays and multiple weeks off at the end of the year to recharge. If you’re in the US, we also offer health insurance, disability and life insurance, and 401(k) matching.
More about us:
Our team is made up of people who are passionate about the work they do, the clients they serve, and, importantly, their craft. We also care about each other — we don’t think of one another as coworkers or employees, but as fellow humans. From developers to designers, project managers to strategists, we bring out the best in each other.
We’ve been in business for over a decade, our whole team is remote, we were named a 2020 and 2021 Best Place to Work by the Inc. 5000 and the Washington Business Journal, and you can poke around our website if you want to know more.

About Yoko Co
Learn about Yoko Co and their company culture.
Yoko Co advances the web presence of organizations driven by a purpose beyond profit.
Our clients are heroic.
We aid them in their journey by helping leverage their web presence in a way that applies accountability to the process. This enables them to see the return on their investment and the full impact of our collaborative efforts. Check out our solutions section for a detailed list of our services.
Use your powers for good.
We’re looking for others to help us support heroic organizations in their quest to change the world. If you’re looking for a great, fast-paced job working on things you care about with a team of awesome people, your search is over.
You’ll make a difference.
Our work is about more than numbers. It’s about doing things we believe in to effect positive change. You can even choose which projects you’ll work on.
Things move quickly.
You'll be working on multiple projects at any given time and things sometimes get hectic. If you currently work for the government, a nonprofit, or an educational institution, it might be a tough transition.
Pretty much everyone works remotely, from home or a shared office. You don’t have to worry about a commute, nor will you be tied to a specific location.
Salary, benefits and bonuses.
Most employees are eligible for a full-time salary, health benefits, bonuses and a 401k with company match. Heck, we'll even throw in a free hat.
We’re not micro-managers and no one will be looking over your shoulder to make sure you do your job. (Except for the invisible monster that lives in your house and is standing right behind you.)
Unlimited PTO. For realz.
Unlimited vacation. Unlimited sick leave. As long as your work isn't negatively impacted, you're free to take that week-long trip to the World Bagpipe Championships.
We love holidays.
We take off all federal holidays, most of the week of Thanksgiving and TWO WEEKS(!!!) at the end of the year.
Work hard. Feel good.
This is a competitive industry. You've gotta be ready and willing to kick into overdrive if it means getting the job done. But when you see the impact you've made, it's always worth it.
No dogs dressed as humans.
We no longer hire dogs dressed like people, NO MATTER HOW FANCY THE CLOTHES. We WILL NOT be fooled again.

Unlimited time off
Take as much time off as you want as long as it doesn't interfere with your ability to do your work. Plus federal holidays and multiple weeks off at the end of the year to recharge.
We offer “flex” Mondays off. You’ll get most Mondays off. We’re still a high-performance culture, so periodically, you’ll still need to log some Monday hours to keep projects moving.
If you’re in the US, we offer 401(k) matching.
Medical, dental, and vision insurance (US only)
