Onward Search looking for  WordPress Designer

 

Onward Search is looking for a freelance WordPress Designer to join our boutique agency client Atlanta for a remote contract opportunity!

Job Summary:

  • You will be responsible for the full-lifecycle design and development of WordPress-based websites for clients
  • You will work closely with the web team and the marketing department to ensure successful implementation and delivery of projects
  • You must be equally capable and skilled in conceptual and creative design and front-end development (specifically PHP, HTML, and CSS). This is first and foremost a design role, but you will be expected to handle your own customizations and tweaks for plugins and themes

Project Scope:

  • This is a remote, project-based role expected to require on average 25-30 hours per week. However, needs are dependent upon client workload and there is no guarantee of consistent work throughout the entire engagement. Some weeks may be 40 hours, some weeks may be 0
  • While this role is remote, all candidates must be local to the Atlanta area and available for occasional strategy sessions and meetings
  • This is a freelance role, but you must be available during standard business hours for both calls and to design/develop. Therefore, you cannot have another full-time job… other freelance clients are fine, however
  • There is potential for this to become a full-time role down the road, if both parties are interested in that type of relationship

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Concept, design, and develop websites using the WordPress platform from mockup to final launch
  • Design the look and feel of client WordPress sites
  • Develop sides within the WordPress platform including customizing and editing plugins, templates, and other site elements using PHP, HTML, and CSS. Scratch development work will be rare, but customizations will be frequent
  • Provide reliable and accurate time estimates for tasks
  • Interact with clients to determine requirements, receive feedback, and deliver project work
  • Operate independently and be able to manage project schedules, deliverables, and relationships

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, Web Design, Graphic Design, Development, or similar
  • 4-6 years of experience in web design and development
  • Deep and demonstrable experience designing custom responsive websites using the WordPress platform.
  • Ability to develop and code in PHP, HTML, and CSS
  • Strong understanding of UI, cross-browser compatibility, general web functions and standards
  • Strong foundation in graphic, visual, and interface design using Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong attention to detail and organizational skills
  • Success driving collaboration with the creative development process
  • Ability to prioritize multiple projects while meeting deadlines
  • Ability to work independently and with little direction. An entrepreneurial mindset is key to success in this role
  • Must have work samples; portfolio link should be submitted with resume
