TL:DR – We are looking for a new WordPress Developer to join our team and help us tackle bigger challenges.
We are a small but perfectly formed WordPress agency in South West London and we need a new WordPress developer to help take os and our clients to the next level.
Our work is with a combination of charities, publishers, agencies, startups and small businesses. Helping them make the most of the web and all the possibilities that “digital” brings them.
The majority of our projects involve building custom WordPress themes and plugins. They’re never your standard WordPress blog project and there’s always something special that needs a little extra thought. Whether that is a tricky design build, custom WooCommerce add-ons or really complex content management, almost every project has something interesting to get your teeth into.
We try and build long term relationships with our clients and the people we work with, you won’t be hidden behind a project manager, instead you’ll work in our team and directly with the people your work impacts. We support each other working on projects to get the very best results for our clients.
We’re very tools focused and do our best to build process into our projects. You’ll get to bring the best of what you’ve learned elsewhere and use it to improve how we work. We’re not attached to any part of our processes and we always want to improve how we do things.
We’re big fans of Git, Composer, Capistrano, Vagrant and Ops tools like that. We try and control the whole stack for our clients preferring to host their sites on Digital Ocean or AWS. We love to bring new optimisations and efficiencies into our tool set.
This role is based out of our shared office space in Wimbledon. Its a great place to work, with lots of local places to eat, great transport connections and a growing town centre.
