Seeking Talented Web Designer with WordPress Skills

*THIS IS NOT A JOB POST FOR PROGRAMMERS OR FRONT END DEVELOPERS – DO NOT APPLY*

We are looking for a part time WEB DESIGNER who can help us design and build out and manage WordPress websites and can perform general online marketing tasks. There may even be logo design or Canva design projects as well.

About You…

You are someone who has a love for web design and marketing. You keep up with latest web trends and styles. You have a natural talent and eye for design: a very critical eye for design, love great typography, understanding of color balance, good use of white space, the golden rule and can pick quality stock photography and have a tendency towards pixel perfect design (you natural pick up on details that can make all the difference).

You are professional above all: you know how to manage your time, schedule and usually meet your deadlines. If you’re struggling with a project, you’re proactive in your communication and always keep you clients up to date with your progress on work. You don’t need to be micromanaged.

You are fast and efficient when working and know how to focus on the task at hand. You thrive on delivering projects quickly, and don’t get lost in to much perfectionism.

You take initiative, are resourceful and looking to expand your skills within the web world. You are willing to be trained on new ways of designing, learning new web apps such as Beaver Builder for WordPress (if you’ve mastered Elementor, this will be easy for you).

You are always ready to tackle a challenge, and an ability to troubleshoot a technical problems.

You are friendly and fun to work with.

You are fluent in English and your writing skills are great. You possess superior communication skills, are responsive via email and are willing to chat via Slack or show up for Zoom calls when needed.

You’re autonomous and willing to take initiative, are resourceful and comfortable troubleshooting.

You possess these skills…

You are very comfortable with tech tools, and know your way around WordPress very well, you are comfortable adding plugins, creating image sliders and formatting content on a page.

You know HTML/CSS and are able to customize themes

You can format content in a page so it looks visually more appealing, using headers and available styles.

You know Photoshop and are great at photo manipulation, such as adjusting colours and contrast, cropping, saving for web, taking screenshots, etc. You also know and care about optimizing your images for web so files sizes are small and web pages load as fast as possible.

A bonus if…

You’re experience working with Beaver Builder or Elementor

You have worked with email marketing apps like Mailchimp, MailerLite or Active Campaign, etc.

To start out we will need help occasionally (10hrs/week) but hoping to grow this position to 25hrs a week within a couple of months and possibly more. There is room for your position to grow into a full-time one and take on more responsibilities.

How to Apply

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, we ask that you email jobs@moderntraction.com and provide the following in your application:

  • Internet connection speed (download/upload)
  • Your time zone and location
  • Add the word ‘easter egg’ somewhere in your application
  • provide up to a MAX of 3 of your BEST websites you’ve built, or design mockups of web pages you completed (with no art direction from someone else)
  • If you have experience working with WordPress, Beaver Builder or Elementor, and how much.
  • Apps/skills you’re a master at, others you are familiar with

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you.
