The Kalamuna team smiling in a heart shaped box.

Leverage the power of WordPress in new ways for mission-driven organizations

As a frontend WordPress developer, you’ll address design and frontend implementation challenges for socially-minded organizations from around the world – from small nonprofits to national institutions. You’ll report to the Director of Technology and work closely with a senior-level WordPress technical project manager, WordPress lead developer, UX practitioners, and other developers. 

We’re looking for a passionate WordPress developer who has experience building lean, responsive, and well-maintained WordPress themes, and has familiarity with Gutenberg and modern JavaScript and CSS frameworks and principles, such as ReactJS, Angular, Vue, etc. Kalamuna is interested in sustainable, framework based approaches to website development so that we can focus on building innovative, custom websites that are impactful.

We offer full-time permanent remote positions for those based in Canada and the United States.

Qualifications

  • Excellent communication skills for both internal and client-facing communications.

  • Mastery of web standards and best practices, particularly the ability to write meaningful, semantic HTML that responds across devices and breakpoints, degrades gracefully, and meets (or exceeds) the latest accessibility guidelines.
  • Comfort with modern development practices and build tools. We use JIRA extensively, GitHub, CircleCI, Composer, etc.
  • Optimize performance with caching and monitoring.
  • Agile experience working with teams leveraging Scrum, Kanban or similar methodologies.
