This position requires a combination of programming skills (namely PHP, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript) and aesthetics. You should have a strong understanding of industry trends and content management systems. Experience with responsive and adaptive design is essential. Also, an understanding of the entire web development process, including design, development and deployment is preferred.

An eye for design and attention to detail to complement your technical skills is also an advantage. Bonus points awarded if you have solid industry experience with e-commerce (particularly WooCommerce).

You:

  • have a passion for the web and love staying up-to-date with industry trends
  • can develop WordPress themes from scratch and enjoy working with WordPress
  • have an intermediate to advanced knowledge of WordPress
  • have an eye for design and attention to detail that many developers lack
  • must be able to attend our Newtown office during work days (sorry, no remote workers)
  • be available to start work early in October 2017.

And, you must also:

  • know your HTML and CSS
  • be comfortable with supporting existing WordPress websites, including those you may not have developed
  • be familiar with Adobe Creative Suite and Sketch
  • understand and carry out cross-browser testing
  • be able to meet regular deadlines while maintaining a very high calibre of work
  • possess excellent communication skills
  • work well as part of a dynamic team in a fast-paced environment
  • have an eagerness to join a team and a willingness to learn
  • have a portfolio of current websites showcasing your experience with WordPress

At GOOP Digital we are:

  • a leading provider of online marketing and website solutions for small to medium businesses for 10 years
  • known for our strong ongoing client relationships and support
  • proud to focus on small to medium businesses in regional areas across Australia
  • results-focused, with the SEO knowledge to build websites that work
  • very serious about what we do, with an expectation for high-quality work and efficiency from everyone – no matter their position or role
  • a small business growing steadily and looking for the right people to help us grow even more, and grow with us too
  • based in Newtown, Geelong.

Send us a list of WordPress sites you’ve worked on, and let us know why you think you’d be a good fit for Team GOOP Digital. Salary negotiable, dependent on experience.

IMPORTANT: This role is based in our Geelong office. Sorry to repeat this point but this isn’t a job for a remote worker so agencies, contractors and applicants based offshore need not apply.

Please send your application and resume to GOOP Digital general manager Bruce Lawson, brucegoop.com.au.

Applications close Friday, September 15.
