Full Stack WordPress Developer at Firefly Partners (allows remote)


Job Description

Firefly Partners, a web design and development agency partnering with progressive nonprofits to meet their digital goals, is looking for a creative, forward-looking Full Stack WordPress Developer to join our growing team. If you’re skilled at turning engaging custom designs and user experiences into accessible, responsive, easy-to-manage WordPress websites we want to hear from you!


We don’t rely on frameworks to get the job done, so you’ll bring a passion for writing custom front-end code using modern HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You’ll also have an adventurous streak, tapping into your past experiences to determine when and how to use APIs to deliver unique solutions to organizations like San Francisco AIDS Foundation, Team Red White and Blue, Rebuild Northbay, and the Center for Reproductive Rights.


As a full stack WordPress developer, your primary responsibilities will include:



  • Developing and maintaining our clients’ custom WordPress themes, occasional premium themes, and custom plugins that often include Salesforce and other third-party API integrations

  • Collaborating closely with other developers, designers, and project managers to deliver high-quality solutions to our clients

  • Working within agreed upon development plans and approved budgets

  • Staying apprised of how WordPress is growing and changing, and regularly contributing to Firefly’s evolving processes and best practices


  • We expect you to have the following skills and expertise:



  • Three or more years of experience in developing and maintaining custom WordPress plugins using object-oriented PHP

  • Understanding of security best practices, including when and how to use WordPress functions to validate, sanitize and escape data

  • Three or more years of experience in front end development using semantic and well-formed HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

  • Three or more years of experience building or assisting with the maintenance of custom WordPress themes that rely heavily on custom fields, custom post types, and well-organized theme functions

  • Implementing plugins when plugins are ideal (and knowing when they aren’t)

  • Adding features/functionality to themes using JavaScript/jQuery

  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of JavaScript

  • Experience working with third-party APIs, including Salesforce

  • Sass/SCSS

  • Gulp

  • Using Git in a team environment
