Production will be on your local server environment (e.g. MAMP/WAMP), with source control through GitHub, while collaborating with two existing developers.

An understanding of the Genesis framework will be invaluable, as this is the platform for our agency website. The developer should have reliable testing practices, a professional level of understanding around web standards and browser quirks, and demonstrated experience working on a team with other developers. The developer must be able to produce well-structured and semantic markup for the other developers for styling and further front-end work.

The freelance role is entirely remote, with a preference for the Pacific time zone. Please submit examples of projects (websites or GitHub) with a rough outline of your role and responsibilities. We’re hopeful to establish an ongoing relationship which could result in a few hours a week to possibly more over time.
