Job Description

We are a small digital agency and have experience selling website projects (Wordpress, Joomla, Prestashop, Opencart) and then hiring a freelance contractor to deliver the code. This has generally been an effective approach for individual jobs however now we are getting to the point where we have worked on enough projects and we recognize the need for a more serious and long-term approach to standardization of the web development processes and stages each project should follow. There are several areas where we require more expertise:

1. DEVELOPMENT PROCESSES: this individual will be responsible for establishing our current informal process into a more strictly followed one. This applies to web specifications, mockups, prototyping, development, testing, bug-testing, documentation.

2. HOSTING OPTIMIZATION: this candidate will also have knowledge of working with hosting providers and their necessary role in the web development process (test environments, production environments).

3. TEAM/DATA MANAGEMENT: this candidate will be able to provide guidance on how we can protect our projects, data and processes in a contractor-heavy team environment where contractors come and go. Setting up processes for access protection and restriction will be key areas which this candidate is expected to address.

NOTE this role is specifically for someone at a strategic/management level but it could also be that there are additional opportunities for the right candidate to get involved directly with development of projects. For a look at our current team you can view this link:
