This WordPress developer is invited to get involved at the creative level, bringing ideas to the table that can help improve the experience of our clients and the quality of our work.

Why LTS?

Founded by Andrew Riddaugh and Pam Gird  in 2020, Unity was built on the idea that you should love what you do and the people you work with. LTS is dedicated to creating impactful change in the world, by challenging social norms.

Being a small team, the entire staff works in tandem to not only empower our clients and further the business, but also champion each other. Along with providing professional growth opportunities (and/or funding for those opportunities), we also believe work should be a part of your life, not your entire life.

We offer a flexible working schedule that allows you to choose when you want to work, allowing your work to complement your life, instead of taking over it.

Responsibilities: 

  • Build out front-end of WordPress websites using our in-house custom theme and page builder
  • Translate design mockups into accurate and functional web pages using HTML / PHP, CSS, JavaScript
  • Lay out content on websites based on design and best practices

  • 2-4 years of experience working as a developer in a professional team environment
  • Ability to write clean, organized, and well-documented code
  • Passion for web accessibility standards and best practices (WCAG 2.1)
  • Demonstrated proficiency with WordPress theme and plugin development, including PHP, HTML, CSS (Sass), and JavaScript
  • Experience collaborating with other developers using Git and GitHub
  • Experience using command line tools such as npm, composer, SSH, and WP CLI
  • Comfort working with and contributing to existing codebases
  • Strong ability to learn and implement best practices surrounding emerging web standards (e.g. responsive web design, sustainable web design, page speed and code performance, and web accessibility).
  • Exceptional verbal and written communication skills
  • Professional approach to time, costs, and deadlines
  • Detail-oriented with the ability to pick up on clues to develop creative solutions and troubleshoot issues efficiently

Bonus if you have: 

  • Familiarity with local development environments, LAMP server configurations, and Cloudflare
  • Experience deploying code to staging and production environments
  • Experience working with and integrating third-party APIs with WordPress
  • Experience working with Roots Sage WordPress starter theme
  • Experience using the Laravel Blade templating engine

This might be a great fit if: 

  • You are insatiably curious, enjoy learning, and have fun tackling complex problems.
  • You are passionate about creating work that makes a positive difference in the world.
  • You are self-motivated, yet open to direction.

This is not the job for you if: 

  • You don’t like to pay attention to the small details.
  • You aren’t able to efficiently switch between tasks throughout the day.
  • You prefer to work alone.
