Full Job Description

Are you a freelance WordPress developer who excels at both web design *and* development, particularly in WordPress and front-end design and development? We’re seeking top talent that can create beautiful layouts and designs and translate them into functional, fast, responsive websites.

Buddy Web Design & Development is a growing and entrepreneurial website design and development company headquartered in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Buddy has built a portfolio of clients across the United States, and is currently seeking a talented and experienced WordPress and front-end designer and developer who would be able to help take on occasional project work as Buddy’s workload grows. This work can be done remotely and part time, according to a schedule of your choosing, provided development milestones are met.

For this role, Buddy is searching for an independent contractor who can spearhead the design and development of functional, elegant, and easy-to-use WordPress websites. Commonly Buddy develops marketing and e-commerce websites for small to mid-sized businesses, using existing WordPress templates or page builders (e.g. Elementor, Divi, etc.) and customizing them using appropriate built-in customization tools, custom HTML and CSS, plugins and related tools. Fluency in PHP and creating custom themes is not required, but can be helpful. Ditto with JavaScript and other related languages.

An ideal person for this opportunity will have experience working in a freelance and independent contractor capacity, coupled with expertise in designing and developing exceptional WordPress websites. An ideal candidate will bring high attention to detail and best practices, a high degree of professionalism and integrity, coupled with a comfort in working in an evolving, entrepreneurial environment that can have ambiguity at times.

If this sounds interesting to you, and you have a portfolio of outstanding WordPress websites that you have both designed and built, please reply with your resume, cover letter, and a link to some example sites you have designed and built. Please be sure to provide answers to the included screener questions, as well. These really help us to ensure a mutual fit, so applications without these answers provided won’t be considered further. Thanks in advance!

Job Types: Full-time, Part-time, Contract

Pay: $20.00 – $50.00 per hour

COVID-19 considerations:
This is a remote position and is conducive to working from home on a flexible schedule.

Application Question(s):

  • This is an independent contractor role with occasional project opportunities, not a full-time salaried role. Is this okay with you?
  • Do you do freelance work full-time? If not, how many hours per week do you typically work on freelance projects?
  • For full transparency, let’s talk money so we can see if we’re in the same ballpark : ) A typical project with Buddy might be something like designing and building a basic brochure-style site in WordPress with around 6 pages of content, like a home page, about, services, contact, etc., with text, images, etc., all provided by the client. You will be responsible for designing and building the site, testing, optimizing, and launching it. No need to use PHP, instead you’d likely select and customize a theme, or use a page builder such as Elementor, Divi, etc. Let’s assume the client has hosting already with WP Engine, and there’s no ongoing maintenance after launch. Just ballpark, what price range would you want to charge Buddy as a subcontractor for something like this? Please provide your best guess for the total cost (i.e. not hourly).
  • Please provide a link to your online portfolio, and/or some of the WordPress websites you have designed and developed.

Experience:

  • WordPress development: 3 years (Required)
