This is a full-time, remote position. We will only review applications from qualified candidates located in and eligible to work in the United States.

Firefly is looking for a skilled Full Stack Developer to join our team in developing custom WordPress theme and plugin solutions for our clients. The ideal candidate will have a thorough understanding of WordPress development standards, best practices, and object-oriented PHP.

Our WordPress themes are not designed around responsive frameworks. We expect developers to have strong HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills with the ability to build UIs to specification, based on final design files, using modern HTML/CSS without the use of responsive frameworks such as Bootstrap or Foundation.
As a WordPress full-stack developer, your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Developing and maintaining our clients’ custom WordPress themes and the occasional premium themes
  • Developing and maintaining custom WordPress plugins that often include Salesforce and other third-party API integration
  • Collaborating closely with our development team, designers, and project managers to deliver high-quality solutions to our clients
  • Working to agreed upon development plans and within approved budgets

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 function to validate, sanitize and escape data
  • Three or more years of experience in front end coding using semantic and well-formed HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Three or more years of experience building or assisting with the maintenance of well-organized, 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
  • Experience working with third-party APIs, including Salesforce
  • Intermediate to advanced knowledge of JavaScript
  • Sass/SCSS
  • Gulp
  • Using Git in a team environment

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working in nonprofit software. The majority of our nonprofit work is in Luminate Online, but we also develop in Engaging Networks, Classy, and other platforms that our clients use.
  • Experience with Google Analytics and Tag Manager
  • Work experience in a fast-paced agency environment

All candidates must submit a portfolio of past projects with code samples or GitHub/BitBucket links.

The starting salary for this position is high-60s/low-70s depending on experience. Firefly offers a competitive benefits package including:

  • Paid time off including 3 weeks of vacation and 2 weeks of sick time annually (pro-rated based on start date)
  • Ability to earn additional paid vacation based on length of employment
  • PPO and HSA healthcare plans with dental and vision options
  • Firefly pays 70% of healthcare premiums for staff and 50% of dependent premiums
  • Employer-paid long-term disability, short-term disability, and life insurance policies
  • Ability to participate in company 401(k) plan
