Laravel Developer [Remote]

Job description

Radish Lab is a purpose-driven creative agency, shaping stories and sharpening brands for organizations improving the world.


We are seeking an experienced developer who is comfortable leading web projects. As a part of our development team you will work on numerous projects, translating design into clean and consistent code. 


Contract type: This is a remote full-time contract position. No agencies please.

Location: Preferably Latin or South America. MUST be in a timezone within 2-3 hours of New York (EST). Others will NOT be considered.


Responsibilities

  • Bring to life carefully designed visual layouts and user interactions using the Roots.io Sage approach to WordPress (a modern front-end development workflow… hence why we’re looking for a Laravel developer moreso than a WordPress developer)

  • Work to understand the design and functionality of a website in progress to be able to ask good questions of the project managers and designers early in the process

  • Assist with light DevOps operations, such as code deployments and build script configurations

  • Support teammates and collaborate with a "do what it takes" attitude

  • Effectively prioritize and execute tasks

  • Display strong communication skills (both in person and in writing) while interacting with individuals with a range of technical understanding

  • Know when to ask for help


Perks

Full-time, international contractors enjoy many of the same perks as full-time Radish employees based in the US, including paid opportunities for professional development.
