Senior WordPress Front-End Developer

Full-time at Modern Tribe
in Remote

Modern Tribe is looking for a talented WordPress Front-End Developer in North America to join our products team.

We’re currently working on high-profile WordPress implementations that range between conventional to seriously bleeding edge. We will want to see plugin code examples – public plugins are ideal. We want people that are able to develop code that can withstand high profile sites and intense loads. You should be comfortable working as part of a team – your code will have to integrate into an existing architecture. If tightly optimized code get’s you excited – you’re probably a good fit.

Do you have a dog eared copy of ‘Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja’ beside your bed? Would you be excited to work on large scale WordPress projects that actually require your JavaScript skills? Would you be stoked to push the limits of where JavaScript and WordPress can play nicely together?

The opportunity calls for a mixed set of skills. We need someone with expert level CSS skills, impeccable WordPress experience, and solid JavaScript, PHP & MySQL skills. Experience building sites with extremely large loads is a plus. We like our stuff to run fast and smooth. We are looking for a unique snowflake – maybe it’s you?
