Hi there! We're a New York City based online marketing company that manages many websites and landing pages to generate legal clients for our partner lawyers. We operate under the name Speedlist LLC.

We find clients who are hurt by drugs/medical devices/accidents from big companies who are negligent and help them with their legal rights to get money through lawsuits and settlements with those big companies. Kind of like a legal Robin Hood :)

We're looking to immediately hire a full-time, expert full stack Wordpress developer to join our team and handle mostly Wordpress technical jobs in-house. The ideal candidate should love to develop, troubleshoot, customize, improve and maintain WordPress sites and landing pages.

Your job responsibilities will include handling tasks such as:

  • General Wordpress dev tasks like fully customizing themes/templates, changing designs, messing with CSS, changing layouts and occasional site builds

  • Wordpress speed optimization

  • Basic SEO tasks (eg installing and configuring SEO plugins, Google Webmaster Tools, Google Analytics)

To summarize, you MUST have the following skills:

  • Expert level proficiency with Wordpress, HTML5/CSS3, Javascript, PHP, MySQL and responsive design

  • Basic experience with server management and cPanel

  • Ability to communicate clearly in English

We are NOT looking for someone that is just a Wordpress “implementer” and only knows how to use simple drag-and-drop themes. We want an expert who knows HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP and MySQL and can dig in to create custom solutions to problems! We will know within 1 working day if you are not experienced enough and will have wasted both our and your time.

What we expect from you:

  • Very frequent and clear communication. Ask plenty of questions if confused about a task or need help from another team member

  • Ability to complete tasks given to you on time that have a deadline

  • Perseverance to find the solution to an issue even if you’ve never dealt with the problem  before.
