We’re hiring full-stack WordPress developers
Howard Development & Consulting is a friendly, flexible, and fully remote workplace. We’ve spent more than 15 years building partnerships with creative agencies around North America, and we provide our agency partners with handcrafted WordPress, custom PHP and Shopify development services.
In addition to our client services, we own MasterWP, one of the premiere WordPress industry publications – and all our employees have the opportunity to contribute to MasterWP articles and the Press the Issue podcast. We recently launched WP Wallet, a tool that helps WordPress developers buy, sell and organize their premium plugins. We own and maintain Understrap, the renowned open-source WordPress theme framework trusted by Intel, Facebook, Harvard and over 100,000 other companies and organizations.
And we’re growing.
What we offer
At Howard Development & Consulting, we prioritize diversity, autonomy, and fairness in everything we do. This means:
An industry-leading equal pay policy
Participation in our company-wide profit sharing plan based on a simple and transparent formula
The flexibility to work where and when is best for you (and we’ll never ask you to put in more than 40 hours in a week)
Four weeks of paid time off and 15 additional paid holidays per year
Access to health insurance and 401(k)/RRSP plans
And many other additional benefits
But most importantly, you get to work with one of the most diverse teams in tech, where your opinion is valued and no one has a monopoly on a good idea.
What we’re looking for
As a software developer at Howard Development & Consulting, you’ll have the opportunity to work on full-build WordPress projects as well as custom plugin and theme development for existing sites we manage.
Desirable skills include…
Full-stack WordPress development experience
Experience with Bootstrap, Underscores and jQuery
Experience building custom WordPress themes and plugins
If you have experience with Shopify and MVC frameworks, such as CodeIgniter and Laravel, that’s a bonus.
You don’t need…
A college degree
Absolute expertise in any of the above (we have lots of paid training waiting for you)
A traditional “Silicon Valley” or “Ivy League” pedigree
In the U.S., employees need to average 30 hours a week to qualify for company health insurance; in Canada, the threshold is 20 hours a week.
100% remote; you must reside in the U.S. or Canada.
Simple, guaranteed equal pay
Profit-sharing for everyone
Make your own hours, including part-time for full-time, any time of the day, any day of the week
A relaxed, positive, inclusive atmosphere
World-class training in every aspect of web development
Managers who’ll protect your time, energy and health rather than pushing you to the limit
A company-wide, absolute, uncompromising focus on allowing you to turn off work (and your phone!) at the end of the day and enjoy your life
15 paid holidays (all 10 federal holidays plus Juneteenth, Election Day, the day after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve)
Paid time off (4 weeks per year for a 40-hour-a-week employee). We don’t do “unlimited vacation” because it’s a fake thing.
Additional paid time off for a new child or medical emergency
Access to excellent health, dental and vision insurance, with an employer contribution
Access to a 401(k) retirement plan
Access to life insurance, short-term disability insurance and long-term disability insurance
A guaranteed annual cost-of-living adjustment, based on the percentage change adopted by the Social Security Administration each year
The starting salary for this role, based on a full-time employee at 40 hours per week, is $88,108 per year, plus profit-sharing bonuses, plus $2,136 in healthcare contributions. After 1,000 billable hours (about 6 months at 40 hours a week), you will automatically be promoted to the senior rate, which is $125,555 per year, plus profit-sharing bonuses, plus $2,136 in healthcare contributions. All U.S. employees receive equal pay regardless of location. All Canadian employees receive equivalent pay, with adjustments for exchange rate and tax rules.
We’re proud to be headquartered in Colorado and support the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act.
