Join my team

Are you a WordPress theme developer? Are you a full-time freelancer? Do you prefer writing code to dealing with clients? Are you an all-round nice person?

If you are, I’m hiring a freelancer to join my team.

What you get

  • You get to build great WordPress themes from scratch, for startups, established businesses, bloggers and non-profits.
  • You get to work for yourself, anywhere in the world, whenever you want.
  • You get a clear specification on every job before you start coding. No guesswork required.
  • You get to quote fixed-prices for projects and add-ons, and you get paid as soon as a project is complete.
  • You get to focus on writing great code and let someone else focus on generating new business and project management.

What I want in exchange

  • Your wholesale rates.
  • Be deadline-driven. This is a deadline-driven business and you’re expected to act accordingly.
  • Be honest. If you don’t have the skills or can’t meet a deadline, tell me before I add you to a project team. You’ll save us both a few headaches.

Project tasks include:

  • Building WordPress themes from scratch using proven HTML & CSS theme guidelines and WordPress best-practices.
  • Customizing themes, adding features, updating plugins and helping clients grow better websites.
  • Migrating from my development server to live hosting environments.

The ideal candidate will possess the following traits:

  • You’re great with HTML5 & CSS3 and have experience building responsive sites.
  • You have a portfolio of at least 5 WordPress sites you’ve coded from scratch, without using a framework or a parent theme.
  • You’re a full-time contractor, not a moonlighting employee.
  • You speak English fluently and are available to chat on Skype for 30 minutes twice a week.
  • You have a fast, reliable Internet connection.
  • You’ve used Basecamp before.
  • You have a working copy of Photoshop. Extra points for CS5 or higher.
  • You answer messages promptly, you’re friendly, happy and you get shit done.
  • You have a Paypal account to receive payments.

Join the Team

If you think you’d be a great fit, email [email protected] with your wholesale rate, a link to your portfolio and at least one social media profile I can look at.

And please remember that I want to work with freelancers, not outsourcing companies.
