Voce Communications (a Porter Novelli company) is hiring a full-time, on-site application developer in their NYC office. To apply send your resume to [email protected]
Voce’s Platforms team is looking for an application developer who will bring their knowledge of web standards, object-oriented programming and databases to a growing team of passionate designers and developers.
The application developer will be a key component in the team’s vision of creating beautifully simple and efficient web platforms for some of the largest brands in the world.
The perfect candidate for this job loves creating new things and bettering existing processes. You don’t make websites because it’s a job… it’s a passion. Know that you’re applying to work with a team that created a bacon website as a Christmas present for a team member. When the site unexpectedly started pulling hundreds of thousands of visitors, we iterated improvements to make the process of spreading bacon even easier. There may not be rhyme or reason to why we create some of the things, but we do it because we love it.
You will build custom solutions for a wide range of clients in a wide range of industries. Expectations are high, so you must be comfortable with building solutions that are as elegant as they are efficient. You know what it means to keep things DRY. You will be working for one of the top WordPress development groups in the country and while we don’t require past development experience with WordPress, you’ll need an open mind to building solutions within this platform. You will be working on task-oriented development projects with written specifications, deliverables, acceptance criteria as well as deadlines.
You must have…
Bachelor’s degree or a great story why you don’t
2+ years experience in web application development. This could be experience on an internal development team, agency, or some seriously creative applications you’ve built on your own time.
Object-oriented programming // PHP is a plus, but not required if you understand the fundamentals and are willing to expand your knowledge of PHP.
Database experience (SQL is a must)
VCS understanding (git is a plus)
Familiarity with APIs and parsing JSON/XML
Solid written and verbal communication skills
It’s great if you have…
WordPress development experience
Work in a dynamic development environment with an agile development focus
Work within the WordPress platform to deliver custom solutions
Work on several projects at once. You must be comfortable balancing priorities
Create custom applications for some of the largest media, entertainment and technology companies in the world
Support existing applications through development iterations as well as bug reports and fixes
Work with project managers and user experience developers to scope and build solutions that meet and exceed client expectations
Work with the team to deliver tested solutions on time
Do what it takes to see things through, knowing that might mean additional time and the sometimes less than glamorous task
Understand that there is more than one way to solve any problem
