(Anywhere in the US)You must be based in the United States for consideration. Intro
We’re looking for a dynamic, motivated web developer to join our small Hudson, NY based team as a remote position.
This is a job that starts with logic, and involves creativity, problem solving, and good judgement. If you’re our developer, you’d have skills in front and backend development, debugging, QA testing and deployment. You’d be working closely with our two founders to collaborate on design and development, and a range of clients nationwide, so strong interpersonal skills are needed. Though we’re small, we’re fast paced, and the ability to work under tight deadlines and switch gears easily.
Primarily you will be building and modifying Shopify stores, working with metadata and product data, and creating integrations for accounting, fulfillment and marketing. Customizing themes and Liquid templates and building designs will be a regular activity.
Depending on experience, there may also be opportunities for building responsive WordPress websites, customizing themes and PHP templates and adapting designs to suit client needs.
Expect to be client facing— you’ll need to communicate clearly and directly with clients and be able to self-manage tasks and initiatives. We’re here to support you, but having the ability to take initiative and go after opportunities as you see them is a must.About Us
