Remote WooCommerce & WordPress PHP Web Developer

Posted 1 week ago by Authentic Style Ltd Featured

If you love all things WordPress and WooCommerce, have a great track-record developing completely custom WooCommerce and WordPress websites—then we want you on our team.

This is an amazing opportunity for an experienced developer to join our growing web design studio. You will take a lead in projects where your skills and passion will be critical in order to help develop our client’s businesses. You’ll get to shape the direction the company takes when it comes to WooCommerce / WordPress web development.

We’re looking for someone who already has a proven track-record developing custom WooCommerce & WordPress websites, who can hit the ground running. You’ll know all about hooks, actions and filters, keep up to date with WordPress features and releases, be super-comfortable writing code in PHP and JS and have the ability to modify and even create plugins from scratch.

Who are we?

We’re a web design studio who believe in an approach called "Growth-Driven Design", where we work with clients on an ongoing basis to help them refine and improve their websites and e-commerce stores based on data. It’s a smarter approach that gets results and makes what we do rewarding, as we see the sites we work on grow and prosper.

We believe our team is the key to ours and our client’s success, and we invest in our people where possible, carving out time for online learning and even putting team members through training outside of work to help develop their skill set.

Above all else, we want passionate, well-rounded people on our team, so if that is you, we can’t wait to hear from you!

We’re based in Shaftesbury in Dorset, but this position would be predominantly remote working as we don’t want the location to restrict the talent of our team. We may require you to pop into the office for occasional client meetings, training, or just for a coffee, a chat and a change or scenery.
