Position Salient WordPress Front End Developer
Location New Jersey - North
Starts Early May 2018, interviews starting 4/23
Duration 40 Hours a week, onsite, Monday - Friday, 9-5
Status Freelance to Full-time or Direct FT (for candidates currently working)
Rate Hourly DOE / Salary $50K+ DOE
Our client needs a Front End Developer to join their agency team onsite at their office in Bergen County, ideally freelance to full-time but they will consider doing a direct full-time hire.

Qualified Developers have at least 1-2 years of experience, ideally some from an agency and are comfortable in a team setting / outgoing.

They are a WordPress shop and build most of their sites within the Salient theme so the Front End Developer must be willing to work mainly within that template. Experience with that specific theme isn't required but WordPress knowledge is needed.

Experience developing for eComm with Shopify is a plus but is not required.

The Front End Developer will be the go to internal resource for development work and must know their way around Photoshop and Illustrator because around 80% of the work is development but there will be some design work 20 - 30% of the time. The Creative Director and Art Director manage the design along with interns but they need a developer who knows what translates from a .psd file to web and functions correctly so the ability to improvise with the design is needed.

The Front End Developer will repot into the Digital Marketing Director with a dotted line to the creative team.

Front End Developer Qualifications / Responsibilities:
• Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility
• Professional experience working with teams to develop web-based initiatives
• Advanced understanding of application code and web markup, including PHP, HTML5, CSS3
• Advanced understanding of client-side scripting and JavaScript frameworks, including jQuery
• Build custom templates for WordPress, utilizing advanced custom fields and/or popular page builders such as Visual Composer
• Develop new user-facing mobile/desktop responsive landing pages, websites and application features
• Build reusable code and libraries for future use and fast deployments
• Optimize web page components for maximum speed, scalability and (most importantly) conversion
