At Mad Genius, we aim to deliver the unexpected—for our clients and for one another. We do this by holding our values at the core of the decisions we make, choosing always to be creative, curious, competitive, collaborative, and courageous. All of that looks a lot like this. Sound like the kind of place you want to work? Perfect. Read on…

What You’ll Do

As a WordPress developer, you’ll work as an integral part of the web team to build completely custom sites based on the WordPress CMS. You will team with other developers, designers, and content strategists to provide users with an exceptional digital experience. While the bulk of your projects will be based in Vanilla WordPress, you’ll also touch some headless projects, Shopify stores, and even the occasional Laravel app. You’ll also get coffee. And donuts. And cake.

What You’ll Need

  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JS
  • Ability to adapt comps made with Adobe XD, Figma, or Sketch into pixel-perfect pages
  • Thorough understanding of how to build and work in custom-coded WordPress themes
  • Experience fetching data from REST APIs and integrating it into the frontend in a clean and performant way
  • A grip on git, and a commitment to the daily version control push and pull within a team
  • Understanding of WCAG compliance, and comfort writing code that meets WCAG AA standards
  • Self-motivation and resourcefulness, and a willingness to learn frameworks or tools you may be unfamiliar with
  • Discipline to stay up-to-date with the latest development tools and techniques
  • A sense of humor is good, though not required, we guess

Bonus Section: Deliver the Unexpected
