Hire Vetted, Experienced WordPress Developers

Hire one of our vetted WordPress developers and work with them directly as a ready-to-go extension to your team.

  • Flexible engagements
  • Years of experience
  • Trained on our agency’s own accounts

Our developers will work with you on any aspect of WordPress development including custom themes and plugins, Gutenberg blocks, APIs and integrations, new website builds, and web application development.

For short-term projects as well as long-term, ongoing needs, you can hire a WordPress developer directly, working with our experienced engineers on a self-managed contract. There is no project manager or middle-man. Direct hire contracts have low overheads, so we’re able to price them competitively. To get started just send us an email.

What Our Developers Can Do

Code custom themes and plugins
Our developers have experience writing multiple custom WordPress themes and plugins from scratch. They follow the WordPress Coding Standards and general best practices for PHP, HTML, JS and CSS.

Build WordPress websites from the ground up
If provided with copy and design, our developers can create a WordPress website from scratch on any web host. They’re familiar with major hosts like WPEngine and Flywheel. They can also change or update existing WordPress sites.

Create or edit pages with Elementor, Gutenberg or other page builders
Many WordPress sites use a page builder plugin like Elementor or Divi. Our developers have experience with these plugins and can create pages to your specifications using them. They are also familiar with the inner workings of Gutenberg, the new WordPress page editing experience.

Improve Website and Page Speed
Many WordPress sites are very slow and this can hurt their traffic and SEO. Our developers are experts at improving the speed of a website as perceived by the user and as measured by tools like Google Page Speed Insights.

Optimize SEO and Yoast settings
Our developers are familiar with SEO problems that are commonly found on WordPress sites and how to fix them. They’ve worked with Yoast SEO and can implement advanced features like structured data schemas.

Improve Website Accessibility
Our developers can improve your compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). If you are a US company this is more important than ever since the Department of Justice views this as essential to complying with the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Experienced Back-end and Full Stack Engineers

Our rigorous screening process ensures that you’ll work with a highly experienced software engineer who’s at the cutting edge of web technology. We review an average of 100 applicants per hire!

Our programmers are fully trained in Agile methodology, modern engineering practices, and fluent with industry standard tools and services such as JIRA, AWS and Git. Our WordPress developers follow the WordPress Coding Standards and have developed multiple themes and plugins from scratch.

Immediate Availability and a Quick Start

In most cases we can place a developer on your project in the same week that you contact us. Our developers are typically available for an immediate start, or in the following week.

Easy Onboarding Process

Review the work history, availability and qualifications of our developers, choose who you’d like to work with, then provide us with your start date and billing information. It’s as simple as that! No contract is required for short-term engagements.

Our agency licenses and uses a number software development and project management tools including JIRA, Trello, GitHub, Bitbucket, Browserstack, Slack, and more. All of our engineers are pros at using these tools. If you don’t already have a WordPress development workflow in place, we can share these tools with you and our developer can guide you through the best practices we employ.

Flexible Half-Time or Full-Time Contracts

You can hire a developer from us for a short-term project (1 month minimum) or enter into a longer, discounted contract for ongoing needs.

Not sure how long your project will take? Our developers are happy to provide a rough estimate (keep in mind that the accuracy will depend on how much information you provide).

If your needs are occasional or you just want to test the waters, our developers can be hired on a half-time basis. This is especially useful for smaller businesses that want to establish a relationship with a good developer, but don’t need somebody full-time.

Hire Other Web Development Professionals

Already have a dev team, but need some quality assurance, or a world class Web designer to take your brand online? Do you have a complex project which requires an experienced, US-based project manager to coordinate? Our creative/design, quality assurance, and project management professionals are available for hire as well.

If you have an immediate need for a web developer or would just like to learn more about our services, contact us today!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I purchase less than one half-time developer (e.g. hire them by the hour?)

A: Currently we only offer vetted developers for hire on a half-time (80 hrs/mo) or full-time (160 hrs/mo)
basis. For new customers whose engagement begins partway through the month, we will pro-rate the
first month of your engagement (so for example, an engagement starting one week into the month would be pro-rated to around 60 hours, and the cost would be proportionally less).

Q: Can your vetted developers design a website from scratch?

A: Our developers are trained primarily as backend engineers and WordPress experts. They haven’t studied graphic design. So while they’re capable of creating websites with simple layouts or working with a template you provide, for a fancier visual presentation you’ll need a web designer. Our developer can then turn the mockups the designer produces into an actual website.
For more visually involved projects where branding and aesthetics are a significant investment, we do have a Creative Director on our team and can handle the whole process for you.
