Seeking Web Development Contractor

Project Background

Due to a high volume of clients, we have an immediate need for a WordPress developer who can code a theme from scratch based on a site mockup provided as a PDF and/or xD, Sketch, or Zeplin file. Clean, unbloated starter themes like Underscores are welcome. 

As a freelance WordPress Developer, you will translate wireframes into coded pages for a website, using WordPress and prepared graphics. You will be responsible for coding custom WordPress themes, plugins, and Gutenberg blocks (via ACF Pro or plain JS+PHP is OK) as well as setting up local, staging, and production environments. You will also be responsible for 3rd-party integrations, cross-browser testing, responsive testing, QA testing, and implementing fixes pre and post-launch.

The Project
