JOB DESCRIPTION AND DETAILS
Great Big Design is looking for an enthusiastic WordPress designer who can also jump in and handle client-facing project management, light content creation, graphic design, and other activities that may present themselves. Essentially, a jack-of-all-trades, as Great Big Design (GBD) is a relatively small studio.
With that in mind, our goal is to find someone who's eager to grow with us and who can help do the things necessary to keep that growth moving forward.
Ability to adhere to sometimes frenetic timelines that may require the occasional late night.
Comfort interfacing with clients to collect project information, share progress, etc.
Strong grasp of basic user interface design as it applies to WordPress both on desktop and mobile.
Strong grasp of colors, fonts, and other assets required for composing simple yet beautiful designs.
Strong grasp of basic coding components (HTML, CSS, PHP) required for performing fundamental updates and tweaks to existing premium WordPress themes.
You know (or can identify) a great WordPress plugin for solving almost any client request.
You can jump in and write snappy headlines, arrange content, and think critically on-the-fly about how a client can best present themselves on the web.
Basic understanding of SEO and how SEO can impact site design (aka, know not to put two H1 headers on the same page, how to install Yoast SEO, etc.).
This is a remote position. You must be US-based (or possibly UK) and must be available during US business hours (Eastern or Pacific).
Availability via Gtalk, Skype, etc.
Ability to work beyond traditional business hours (8:00 - 5:00 p.m.).
GBD pays on a per project, per page basis. Additional details will be provided to candidates who apply and who meet our criteria.
Please include a portfolio and/or examples in your application.
Great Big Design also offers animated video production (explainer videos). For the right candidate, there may be opportunity to manage some of these projects.

Project Management: 1 year
WordPress: 3 years
