Contract Full Stack Developer

San Francisco, CA Contract Allows remote

Why we’re hiring a developer

 

Simple: We’re growing.

Growing because of great clients and a great team.  Growing because we chose to grow and not because we have to.  Growing because our upcoming projects will make us a better agency and a better team.

 

No two Developer jobs are the same.

To us, a developer is someone who can write custom, compact and efficient PHP from scratch and transform WordPress from it’s default settings into a secure, scalable and organized set of blazingly fast custom functionality.  And above all, someone who can deliver beautifully efficient, clean code.  You know the kind of code that’s so gorgeous it gets liked on Pinterest?  Code that’s better than an all night Breaking Bad binge, better than…  That’s what we want.  That’s what you want.  We can make that happen.
