Preferences

We’d love to find someone that is thoughtful, pleasant, and enjoys collaborating.  It is important to us that we find a good fit for our ecosystem.

We are not interested in the following

  • No offshore developers or developer companies, we need direct contact with our developer and we want to work with people in similar time zones as us.
  • No weekend moonlighters.  We believe in having a work-life balance.  We work during the week and take the weekends off, only on very rare occasions does our work bleed into the weekends.  We try very hard to avoid this.
  • We do not enjoy working with developers that lean too heavily on plugins.  Our approach is to use as few 3rd party plugins as possible.  We appreciate that some are required, but we want to work with someone that can build templates and blocks in PHP and style a website via CSS.
