Seeking Website Development Wizard (WordPress / Elementor) – Upwork

Affiliate Dev

We are a small growing social impact organization embarking on a big mission to spread more love, kindness and harmony in the world. Our projects have the potential to positively impact the lives of millions across the globe, and focus on supporting people, animals and the environment through engaging content, unique products, grassroots movements, and other compelling offerings.
To further realize our vision as we get ready for the launch of a new project in the next few months, we are now looking to bring aboard a contracted website “development wizard” who can use their magic to create, build, run, and help us maintain and scale a new dynamic website for the project.
If all works out well with this initial project, there could be an opportunity for a long term relationship to continue the work.
We already have a wonderful full time graphic design team focused on UI/UX. While they build beautiful designs and great functional wireframes (using the Adobe Suite and Figma) for the site, so we’re ready for YOU to bring our planned site and the desired functionality to life using WordPress as our CMS backbone, and Elementor and WooCommerce as our major page building and commerce plugins.
Plain and simple…we’re looking for a super talented web developer we can work with to take our front end designs and planned user experiences, enhance them as needed (working collaboratively with our team), and then let loose developing our fully functioning sites.
Here are some more specific details about the experience, talents and skills we’re seeking from the right match:
* Solid English communication in verbal and written forms (with conversational Spanish a big plus but not necessary)
* Ability to use and modify pre-existing WP themes or build our own custom theme with responsive design optimized for both desktop and mobile
* Solid CSS and HTML skills to enhance styles and layouts
* Install and configure WooCommerce with various Woo extensions (tax, ship tracking, etc.)
* Easily understand and custom configure multiple important WordPress plugins needed for extra functionality (in a way that integrates seamlessly into the overall UX)
* Use best practices for efficient page load speed, and SEO optimization (using Yoast Premium or other similar plugin)
* Familiarity with creating sites in multiple languages (using provided text translations/not Google Translate) with English & Spanish as our first two languages from the start
* Basic database management with CRM and Affiliate plug in set up
* Set up and manage hosted WP optimized virtual servers, overseeing security, backups, version control, performance monitoring and scaling as needed
* Troubleshooting, bug fixing, updating and maintaining the latest versions of themes and all related plug ins
Monthly Project Budget for Milestones / Compensation:
We measure success more broadly than just money with “multiple bottom lines” that value the positive contributions we make toward supporting our individual growth and inspiring others just as much if not more than financial gain. We of course know earning money in the modern world is important to sustaining all our lives and the organization, so while we’ll offer you project compensation totaling fixed monthly milestones averaging $750 to $1250 USD per month based upon your experience level and scope of milestones, it is important to know that money is not the primary motivator or driver for anyone on our team or our organization as a whole. If the ability to make measurable and tangible contributions to the greater good has value to you, in addition to earning money for your efforts, then we may be a great match for this project and other longer term projects.
The Right Mutual Fit:
We are a flat organization with a culture of “co-creation” with egos and internal competition left at the door, so that everyone on the full time and contracted project teams can work closely and openly with the each other to contribute their best each day.
If the opportunity to use your passion and gifts as a web developer, to have more meaning, fulfillment and purpose in your life as a result of the work you do each day resonates with you, then this might be the right opportunity for you. If it resonates with you to have your heart and soul light up from the impact of the work you do, while feeling you are truly valued as an integral part of a talented project team, pursuing something beyond self benefit alone, then let’s connect.
Please reply with not only your background of relevant experience, skills and talents for this role, but also your thoughts on why you think you’d be a great fit to work with us on this project given our detailed description above. We are excited to discuss this unique opportunity further with candidates we agree may be the right mutual fit. We thank you for your time in reviewing and replying to this post, and look forward to hearing from you.
