Description

I'm looking for an advanced web developer to work with me on original projects that inspire and shift entire industries. As a digital strategist of 17 years known for SEO, I'm looking for someone that's also incredibly ambitious, values excellence in details and is always on top of shifting trends in technology trying out new things to push the envelope. While I'd like to do everything well at the level of performance required I definitely need someone that's an expert in their area of web development. In my industry Google alone makes over 500 changes per year and I need someone that's just as on top of changes in development.

This freelancer web developer role is not for someone that thinks Wordpress, Drupal, or Magento setup makes them a developer. This is for someone that builds advanced sites in newer code using their own streamlined. Anyone that's not experienced working in web development will not be considered as this role requires advanced knowledge of areas covered below.

Skills & Requirements

Advanced Web Developers Experienced in the following areas will be considered:

  • Javascript: server-side rendering ( React, Angular, Vue)
  • PHP: (Laravel, Custom)
  • Ruby
  • HTML5, CSS3 (Responsive Design)

Must be able to document code, work on realistic deadlines, work with a team at times and use tools etc like Github for version controls. Must be versed in the fundamentals of LAMP and hopefully have a preference for your own server configurations. Don't need to be an admin just the fundamentals to hosts for exact specifications and site transfers.

Desirable Experience:

  • Building an API in particular with React for agile changes
  • Maps technology like using our DLS land map coordinates system, Google Maps, tracking
  • Directory, Community building
  • Data Warehousing (Machine Learning) ie search using fuzzy logic, autocomplete and organizing things like businesses and people into entities for quick queries.
  • Familiarity with different search setups like SOLR with own preferences for fast UX
  • JSON-LD (Schema)
  • Fundamental Understanding of SEO architecture ie server-side rendering for React etc. I will no doubt be helping with knowledge in this area regardless.
