Lucent Is hiring a Web Developer

Lucent Digital is hiring a web developer to help us support existing clients, develop websites for new clients, and build websites for our own side projects and services. This position is remote or can be a hybrid for our office in Springfield, Missouri.

The position is best suited for someone with a few years of experience building on the web and a big appetite for learning. The idea of working with organizations that do more than just sell widgets is meaningful to you.

Position Overview

This position is for the sole developer on our team. Our developer works closely with designers, clients, and a project lead to build fast websites with thoughtfully crafted user experiences. The responsibilities require a variety of focus areas that will help you continue to learn and grow as a developer. These range from front-end development, CMS integration, fixing bugs, and building features on existing client sites to back-end development, JS frameworks, and side projects.

Requirements

  • 2+ Years of HTML/CSS
  • 2+ Years of PHP
  • 1+ Year(s) of theme development with WordPress

About You

You write HTML, CSS, and Javascript from scratch with ease and are very comfortable writing PHP to build features. You enjoy working with Javascript frameworks like Vue and Svelte. You have experience in integrating designs into a content management system like WordPress. You love troubleshooting and experimenting with code. You enjoy working with teammates to find simple solutions. Interacting with clients and writing carefully crafted responses to their questions is appealing to you.

Development Approach

We design and build custom websites for non-profit organizations and small businesses. Our development approach centers around custom theme design. We build most solutions in WordPress and focus on doing things the “WordPress way” by avoiding using page builders and as few plugins as possible.

Here are some real examples of work we’ve done recently to help you better understand the role:

  • Fix bugs and create enhancements in PHP for a WordPress multisite installation for a University
  • Develop a custom website by using a starter theme or creating a custom WordPress theme
  • Use Node.js and Composer to configure Webpack for compiling SASS, images and integrate TailwindCSS
  • Manage Commits, branches, and deploy changes with Git
  • Build a resource library with categories and search filtering using custom post types on a WordPress site
  • Creating a custom website for job postings using Laravel
  • Build a custom map app using MapBox using a Javascript framework like Vue.js

Benefits & Perks

Job Type: A full-time gig
Salary: $16 – $20 / hour based on experience and ability to fulfill all duties
Benefits: Medical, vision, profit sharing, paid time off, flexible schedule

We’re sure you will enjoy our relaxed work environment, sit-stand desks, casual dress code, generous time off, having your birthday off, and monthly team lunches. We strive to work a maximum of 40 hours a week so our team members can enjoy life outside of work. We work to live and not the other way around.
