DEVELOPER & PROJECT MANAGER:
This job will start off with a significantly smaller budget, but will grow with the expansion of the new site. It is perfect for someone who is skilled in the areas listed below, who is excellent with budgeting time and resources, and who is looking for a long term project to grow with.
We are hiring for many different development tasks. However, this role is specifically for someone with the above skills and EXCELLENT project management skills and experience. I move fast and have a lot of ideas that are going at once, so must be extremely organized, be able to organize tasks I assign and delegate to appropriate developers if you do not know how to do it. Bonus with experience in hiring and management, work well in a collaborative environment, remain positive with changes and evolution to the project, and have excellent quality control protocols in place for yourself and the team.
I currently have a highly customized, increasingly complex, WordPress marketplace site. However, as we upgrade the current WP site to fit our new concept and functionality, we are ALSO working towards building a new site. We have a site dev manager who has been with us for 6 years. However, he is overloaded with tasks and many of the new development tasks are outside of his skillset.
The job entails two functions: work with our current manager when necessary to learn the functionality and customization of the site, upgrade and improve the current WordPress site to include new functionality desired, while ensuring that the PHP code is modular and can be easily adapted to other platforms, including the new site that we are developing using React.js with a Next.js framework
Person in this role be highly skilled in the following (or have a team that they manage with the combined skills ,OR will hire, under budget, for specific roles as needed, and according to company standards):
-SEO best practices
-tracking best practices
-have a strong understanding of database design and management
-affiliate management systems & integrating payment gateways a plus
-Stringent practices in GitHub a must
-Click up task management a plus. Work closely with our front-end developer to ensure seamless integration of the functionality into our user interface
-Write clean, well-documented code that adheres to best practices and is easy to maintain and debug
-Test and debug the code to ensure that it is stable and reliable
-Collaborate with the team to identify and implement improvements to functionality as needed
-Deadlines are essential. Zero tolerance for continuously missed deadlines that you establish
-Must be a PROBLEM SOLVER, creative, take initiative, anticipate potential issues, and bring interesting ideas to the development
-Will need to spend the time necessary to learn the function and flow of site and how it is coded to achieve that functionality, to be able to anticipate needs and offer solutions during development brainstorm meetings.
-I am offline by 11:30pm PST and back online by 9amPST. Must be available during those hours at some point for our meetings.
-I am open to you having your own team, but must also be able to seamlessly integrate and collaborate with my current team and anyone else I hire. You must keep exceptional records for any developer to step into the role when you are out and manage the site temporarily.
-Must be able to manage and only bring final, tested, proofed, products to me. I do not have time to be the one who finds the bugs.
-However, I do function best with Project managers who are flexible with workflow and will share screens and can make changes on request, as I am a visual person and tend towards perfectionism.
-Patient personality a must
-Would love someone who is a process expert, who can see what functionality we are trying to achieve and offer better, more streamlined development for it, to increase UX
If you have read all the way through this, then we might be a good fit. As mentioned before, this is an extremely tight budget, but a business geared fro massive growth. If you are looking for an interesting and modern project, would love to work with or start your own team, can be flexible in the beginning with budget, and would love the potential for significant growth, please apply and tell me how you would be the ideal person for this role.
Thank you for your time. I look forward to working with you.
