WordPress Theme Programmer Needed

WordPress Theme Programmer Needed


Job Description

I am a theme-based WordPress site developer, meaning I can do pretty much anything to a site as long as I have a theme to start with. I have not yet learned to code PHP, nor am I completely comfortable with in-depth CSS. I am trying to transition into doing websites almost full-time, but the majority of my potential clients want and need themes that are unique and custom developed for them. This is where you come in. This has the potential to become a long-term arrangement for the right person.

Terms of the Contract:
 All themes must be delivered in 3 days after approval
 Mockup is required by midnight Central time the day after request is received. Mockup can be created in any graphics program. PSDs are not required. JPG/PNG/GIF are acceptable; however, you must be able to create images and graphics as needed.
 You must relinquish all intellectual and ownership rights upon payment
 Payment will be issued within 4-5 days of final delivery
 Mimic a specified Framework as closely as possible (I will provide a theme with this framework)
 Payment schedule is $135 for completed responsive themes, $100 for completed unresponsive themes, $35-$65 for modifications to existing themes to make it fit the client’s needs (depending on complexity). THE TERMS OF THIS PAYMENT SCHEDULE ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE AND ARE INCLUSIVE OF FEES.
 Themes do not require pre-formatted pages. Specific elements of the theme will vary from client to client. (I will be filling in client specific content, so you will not have to do any of this unless otherwise specified.)

Grounds for Termination and Non-Payment:
(These elements are grounds for immediate termination and nonpayment for the theme)
 Base64 or otherwise encrypted code
 Any unrequested/unapproved static links
 Use of theme for any other purpose without prior written consent
 Validation code that will cause the theme to crash if any other non-essential code is removed or modified
 Malicious code
 Mediocre programming

You should be:
 Comfortable and skilled in writing PHP, CSS, and HTML
 Comfortable doing graphic design elements
 Good at developing aesthetically appealing color schemes
 Available via Skype for frequent communication
 Willing to comply with and be bound by the terms above
 Be able to provide 5-7 samples of your work
 Be willing to sign a contract and NDA
 Be willing to complete a full application for consideration in addition to your bid, cover letter, and profile resume
 Fluent in English

Once you submit your bid, you must visit http://williswriting.com/wordpress-theme-programmer-application/ and complete the application for full consideration. This allows me to easily compare all applicants to choose the two-three best suited to this position. The second and third programmers will be available as backup to the primary programmer. Work will not commence immediately, as I must secure contracts; however, I wanted to secure a programmer first. No prepayments/deposits will be made, as I must secure payment from the client before I can pay you. International programmers are welcome to apply; however, you must speak VERY FLUENT American English (English comprehension tests required - https://www.odesk.com/tests/511?pos=1, https://www.odesk.com/tests/693?pos=6, https://www.odesk.com/tests/688?pos=2, and https://www.odesk.com/tests/745?pos=88), and all programming must be in English. You must have a 4.5 score with excellent feedback. If you are new to oDesk, please be prepared to provide references. If you have an established work history with another provider (such as Elance), you may provide a link to that profile for your references.

In order to be considered, your bid MUST BE $135 for a responsive theme with a duration/delivery of ‘less than 1 week.’ Any bids above this will not be considered. Place “Rockin’ Programmer” as the first line of your bid so that I know you read the complete message and accept the above terms.

Skills: graphics, design, english
