Back-end Developer (Contract)

So, what are we looking for in a back-end developer? Good question.

Hi. We’re Shop, a multi-disciplinary design studio located in Vancouver, WA right in the heart of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Things have been going well (thank you for asking), and we’re looking to bring on a back-end developer on contract.

Our studio has built a great mix of client partnerships across tech, publishing, and a variety of other sectors. At our core, we are a group of creative enthusiasts focusing on design, development, and digital marketing.

So, what are we looking for in a back-end developer? Good question.

Much of our work online is currently spread across custom PHP, CMS development and JavaScript (Vanilla JS, Vue, React, jQuery, etc.). While we do a lot of work in WordPress, we are interested in emerging technologies, like headless CMS applications, Custom API development, and other emerging web technologies. We are looking for someone who can dive right into custom PHP and WordPress development and has a good foundation in Javascript / jQuery.

We are logical, organized, and highly creative thinkers, and we’d like to work with someone who fits that profile. How about experience levels? If you’re somewhere between a junior developer and a veteran developer that’s what we’re hoping for. Ramp up times on projects will be quick, and we need a self-starter who can work independently and get stuff done.

This is a contract position, and we’re more than happy to work with someone remote if it’s a good fit. Hours will vary depending on studio workload.

Interested in joining our team?
