Now hiring: WordPress/PHP Developer

Update: This position has been filled. We’re still always looking for talented people, so feel free to send us a resume.

We’re on the hunt for an exceptionally talented web developer to join our agency full-time in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia. You’re a programmer who understands the importance of both development and design to the success of a project. You love open source, web standards and having a really interesting development problem just waiting to be solved.

People Matter, Objects Don’t – it’s the world view that shapes everything at Kula Partners. We create marketing programs, build websites and apps, and develop content that connects people to each other. Basically, we see the evolution of the internet, the rapid adoption of social media, and the increasing role technology is playing in our lives as being more about people than the technology itself. That doesn’t mean that we value the way things look over the way they work. Just the opposite. We want every interaction to be seamless, smooth and well-considered.

Much of our development happens within the WordPress world, so you should have an excellent handle on PHP for building custom modules and plugins. It goes without saying that you’ll be able to bend MySQL to your will, and create stunning interaction with JavaScript. You’ll work directly with our design team in a tightly integrated team environment on projects of all shapes and sizes. And you’ll love the variety.

Joining our team in our Halifax studio, you’ll find our People Matter approach applies to how we work too – we prefer fun over drama and think proper espresso and a nice record player are must-have’s in the office. Plus, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary, vacation and the right kit for the job — including a MacBook Pro and a Haworth Zody chair.

You can:

  • Build anything including the kitchen sink in a LAMP stack environment
  • Hand-code HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript
  • Develop mobile apps for iOS, Android or Blackberry platforms
  • Work closely with a designer and sweat the details

It’d be even cooler if you:

  • Write and speak with confidence
  • Some ActionScript 2/3 experience to maintain legacy projects
  • Tweet, blog or Tumble regularly
  • Do something really weird for fun that doesn’t involve a computer. Seriously.

How to apply

We’re more concerned with your attitude and work than the number of years experience in the industry. Get creative and get in touch jobs@kulapartners.com.
