Wordpress/Web Developer in Rochester, NY
August 21, 2012 11:05 AM

We need someone who has experience working with Wordpress and HTML/CSS/Javascript. If you think you're cut out to replace me, send me an email: [1] jordan@philipsongroup.com.

Also, hopefully you have at least 2 years of experience working with a LAMP stack. You need to be comfortable with the command line to keep the server running. You need to be able to show me exactly where the themes folder is in a Wordpress build. You need to know what a polyfill is, and you need to bring me copies of code that you've written for evaluation. You need to write clean, competent and progressive markup. You need to know PHP enough to write custom functionality for WP; we don’t need a PHP wizard, but you should be able to at least code a calendar or something similar.

You're going to be doing all of the IT support for the office, so you need to be able to handle simple fixes in OSX, our router, and a drobo FS backup server. Ideally, you'd be comfortable fixing Mac/PC hardware, or willing to google for directions.

You need to be competent in Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as general computer imaging theory (i.e. differences between filetypes, best practices for dealing with web images and compression, etc).
You will need to be willing to learn new programming languages and techniques on occasion.

The job is nice. I've been here for 7-8 months. My co-workers are all friendly people and the office is absolutely GORGEOUS. Like, seriously gorgeous. Like when a young person in a movie is successful and they show their office and you're like "OH MY GOD, NOBODY WORKS AT A PLACE LIKE THIS IN REAL LIFE". Yeah, it's like that. We literally work across the street from a waterfall.

The pay is enough to get by on around here, commensurate with experience. There are healthcare options, including a high-deductible plan and a more expensive option that I'm not particularly familiar with.

I'm going to be interviewing you. I'm pretty laid-back and not really a bullshitter, but I am going to make sure that you're going to be a good fit for my co-workers and that you know your stuff. If you're okay with that, I'd love to meet with you sometime in the next couple of weeks. Email me your portfolio or links to a couple of sites that you've built (along with proof that you built them) and we'll talk: [2] jordan@philipsongroup.com.
